    If aqa have already set the grade boundaries, could they release them early? Or are they not able to until the 17th?

    Grades will have been established by now, they will NOT release them before the 17th
    Isn't results day the 18th

    Tbh it says there's no specific time they upload grade boundaries so maybe the could be out early. Just everyone be on the lookout!

    When do grade boundaries get released?
    There is no exact time for when grade boundaries are released. However, they are often released a day or so before results.

    If, say, you did not meet your uni offer and your uni rejected you on UCAS track, but you applied for a remark and the grade changed - could the uni reverse its rejection or is this permanent?

    Yes - if a remark results in you meeting your offer then UCAS and the universities can reverse a rejection.

    It is VERY important to notify universities ASAP if this is a possibility - some universities will honour the place but only for deferred entry while others will bend over backwards to get you in this year.

    The more you keep your university in the loop and updated the more likely they are to be helpful.

    Before summer I started the content and it's a bit hard to grasp. Hopefully as we do more it'll start to make sense

    It's probably nowhere near as bad as you think - don't loose all hope until you get the results. I had similar doubts about sociology when I did my A2 exams, nearly ran out of time (never happens to me), strange questions etc etc but was pleasantly surprised come results day. Try to stay positive - it's not over yet!
