    Getting a call from school saying they want you to come early for an interview / media / report is a good sign, atleast i'd think...
    Should be, they wouldn't want students in who haven't got their predicted grades or above or who have got lower than C grades. If I was you I would think that as a sign of relief...

    If they phone the day before results day (when they have your results) it's a good sign - however, if they've rang you recently, they're just speculating - I hope you get the grades though

    Oh the memories 😭😭 flashbacks to SCLY4 paper rn.. what an awful awful experience that was not only was the questions awful, but due to personal issues I wasn't in much and my teacher who was so poor at teaching she's on review at my college delibrately refused to give me the material for SCLY4 when I was in hospital having surgery 2 months before the exam

    I loved SCLY3.. hoping I get a very very high grade for that exam so it can kinda average it out but I'm not banking on it. Need a C overall for uni but that's not going to happen. Didn't write ANYTHING and I mean anything for the SCLY4 exam..

    :facepalm::dontknow:

    Wow
    Sounds horrible
    Rooting for you though👊🏾
    Hopefully really low boundaries and your SCLY3 exam will pull your grade up.

    State crime question was awful for me though. Legit got 5 marks max

    It was... literally sat in the exam, cried all the time and was so shaky that I had to move exam room and during that time I was getting moved... I was thinking in my head and making up things to try and fit into the question.

    State crime & postmodernism was the topics I was never taught/given materials of from my teacher so when I saw the 21&33... that was pretty much it.

    Crime prevention I never got informed of as a topic let alone taught :/ my teacher was just **** ((

    The only thing that went decent was the 15 marker for methods in content... but that isn't even good enough for a E ://

    Thank you though, good luck for you too I'm sure you're in a much better position than me ah

    Not sure where you got that idea from. For the most popular subjects then generally over half the entry is awarded a grade B or higher, going up to around 64% of entries gaining a B or higher in Mathematics. (Source: http://www.jcq.org.uk/examination-re...ts-summer-2015)

    TSR is very unrepresentative for GCSEs but for AS/A2 it seems to be quite a fair representation of students as a whole.
    It could just be my school I guess...

    Whoa, if your college thinks you've got good enough results to be on TV, you probably have

    Yeah I don't think they realise I guessed half the questions on Chemistry...

    I honestly think it's just because they already had information about my course (it's not exactly conventional) and they said on the phone that as I've already done publicity for them before, would I do it again

    I think no more than 80/100 for the A* and no more than 88/100 for the 120 UMS. For CHEM5, I think it will be exactly the same as last year (84/100 for the A*, 92/100 for the 120 UMS).

    My ISA was pretty crap (A/B borderline) but I'm thinking I can make that 6-12 UMS up with the papers hopefully!

    It feels like only yesterday that we started Year 12....

    If this year went fast, I wonder how quickly Year 13 is going to go.

    I agree - it would been good if I'd had an extra fifteen minutes or so. I (think/hope) I
    got the structure at the end with about 3 minutes to spare haha.
    I made quite a few mistakes on the rates stuff though - the new rate equation with propanone concentration multiplied by 100 I put as exactly the same as before (although it was supposed to be k[H+] apparently). I reckon I got something in the very low 90s though with any luck, which should get the 120 UMS, but who knows with AQA lol...

    ?
    I didn't do AQA maths or further (I did OCR MEI), but what do you think about AQA physics??I personally think full UMS will be 65/75 for PHYA4 and 65/75 for PHYA5 (with astro). The only reason I think it'll be lower than people think for PHYA5 is because it was quite wordy and that tends to bring boundaries down.

    Yeah, to be honest when I first came here two years ago I felt slightly depressed as loads of people seemed to be getting into Oxbridge and only scoring A*s. Even though I've noticed that in my school if you've got an A or two — you're doing pretty well!

    I guess it's a study related forum so the vast majority people who aren't passionate about academics wouldn't wander into here.
    Totally, so people shouldn't feel bad/stupid. I was one of four people in my school to get a B or above in our chemistry mock in March.( out of 30+ people)And at least the other science subjects weren't much better. so my thought process is that not everyone can be expecting such high grades. My school is obviously not selective but I'd imagine that the majority of schools aren't either...
