    Comments
    I am so happy with my results! All my hard work paid off. However, I was really nervous before opening the envelope. I didn't think that I would have gotten an A* in maths because the grade boundaries were so high or A's in English so I'm very chuffed

    Next Steps
    I am going to study biology, chemistry, maths and geography at AS level. I'm excited to start back in September!

    Comments and reactions: Happy with most but very disappointed with others, especially English lit... Thinking of getting a re-mark as I was only 3 marks off an A. I'd be grateful if anyone could tell me if it's worth it / likely that it would change my grade?

    Future ambitions:
    I'm studying History, Geography and Spanish for A-Level and then hopefully History at Uni. After my mediocre results I was wondering if I still have a chance at getting into Cambridge or another top Russell Group?

    A-levels matter more, cambridge/oxford need at least C's at GCSE. Just focus more on your A-levels.

    Those are amazing results! From what I've heard, Cambridge care more about AS results and A2 predictions than GCSEs but they will look back at them. As long as your personal statement, interview and aptitude test performances are strong then your grades won't stop you from getting in.

    I can't even believe it! I didn't think i would get these results, especially the A* in French. In my maths overall I got 97% and in one paper, i got 100%! I still can't believe any of it.

    Couldn't have been happier. My mother kept mocking me about the day I told her that I wouldn't be able to get above a B in English language...

    Future ambitions:
    To study maths, further maths, physics and computing at A level. Not 100% sure about a career choice yet, probably something between programming or engineering.

    Overall I'm quite happy, I was so close to A's in core science and food tech though but I'm not too bothered about those subject so I am not majorly disheartened. The fact that I was the only on in my year to get an A* in PE really made my day though! Congrats everyone!

    I am going to sixth form in September to study PE, Geography and Psychology and hope to go on to Loughborough University and do Sport Science. It's a long shot but may as well have big dreams!

    When I saw the maths grade boundaries I thought it would be a miracle if I got a C, I have no idea how I got an A*. Bit disappointed about history as I got an A* in coursework and one exam, but an A in the other which dragged my whole grade down. But overall just happy I smashed my predicted grades 😂

    Future ambitions
    I'm studying a levels in maths, biology, and history in a few weeks. I'm still hoping to go to Oxford (despite my lacklustre grades) but I aim to study Biomed or maybe maths

    I've only done 1 subject because i'm in year 10 but i am wondering if anyone else has done the same exam this year (it's OCR J261). If so please could you tell me what grade you got an what your UMS was? Thank you and congratulations for your results

    Those are very good results! Don't put yourself down like that, and if you keep this up, going to Oxbridge is extremely possible. You seem like a passionate and determined person, don't let this get in the way of your dreams! I had 1 A* and the rest A's and I feel disappointed for similar reasons as you but I feel I shouldn't try to be hard on myself, and learn to improve even further. Not only that, you now know what to do sort of for your A levels as a result of what happen to your coursework. Keep pestering to your teachers till their ears bleed and I'm sure your A-level results will be outstanding as well! Sorry for the long lecture! :P
    I feel like I needed this! Thank you so much

    I cried ,,, I failed geography and got a c in media so I couldn't do either at a level and I was predicted an a in both. My media studies teacher didn't understand neither did I. I don't know what I did wrong and I'm sad and idk if I can retake the exams or what. I was so upset and I've never cried I front of a teacher but she took me outside just us two and I couldn't hold it in. It's pathetic but I had a horrible woman that was enrolling me too. When j chose my a levels she told me I met all the entry requirements but the Cs I had in other irrelevant subjects made me look bad and not an a level student so I should stick to b techs... I was very disappointed

    Gonna go like this, subject - grade - predicted

    English lit - A* - A
    English Lang - A - A
    History - A - B
    Geography - A - B
    RS - A - A
    Maths - A - A
    Biology - C - C
    Music - B - C
    French - A* - A

    Overall I'm happy as I thought i would o wayyy worse. However, my English language, music, geography, RS and history are all being sent in to be remarked as I was 1% off the next grade boundary. How likely is it that my grade will actually go up? Because if they all went up that would means I would have 6 A*s 2As and 1C (I don't really care about the C as I suck at science, if it annoys me too much I can just retake the exam)

    don't listen to her!! maybe you could discuss remarking with geography and media if you really feel that you were on a high level before and were confident with the exams.
    if you feel like you can take a levels DO THEM. work really really hard from the onset and get the best results you possibly can and universities will see how much of an improvement you made since your gcses! most universities won't be two worried about your gcse grades, as long as you passed maths, english and maybe the subject you're looking to do a degree in.
    this september will be a completely new start!

    I'm very happy with my results except for English language and art. Don't get me wrong I'm still happy with them I just know I could've done better in my opinion.


    future ambitions: I'm doing art, history and English language for a level. I don't want to go to university but I want to do an apprenticeship at a book publisher as I want to be an editor in the future. I also want to be an author myself on the side.
