    But wasn't the exam over when we started commented? You're foolishly stupid. So what, if I found this later than you found it earlier. Stop being unfair and selfish. There is no need for this at all. I find people like you so horrid and selfish.
    Well obviously people discuss it as soon as the exam is finished to see what other people may have put and how others thought it went for them to get a rough indication on grade boundaries or sumak like that and i an assure u im not foolishly stupid. I found this post before the exam even started so shut ur mouth, and if u really knew me ud know im one of the last people ud b calling horrid or selfish so dont judge me before u know me and stop making general assumptions about people, theres no need for that either. me and the other person were just making a point, a suggestion it doesnt mean that u had to take it on board.

    You should be okay with college/uni/job applications as most just ask for a C in Language.

    76/80 UMS in unit 1 (A*)
    58/70 UMS in unit 2 (A).

    Overall, I was graded at an A. My controlled assessements were marked down, unfortunately. I'm quite chuffed, as I remember being distracted by people in the exam, fidiling with pens and booklets. Putting that all behind me, I think I did my self justice (get it? -- Of Mice and Men question).

    I somehow got full UMS in the whole GCSE, which surprised me. I knew my coursework was full marks, but was genuinely shocked that overall I got 200/200 UMS, especially as I thought I'd answered the OMAM question completely wrong.

    Anyone know what grade I'll get with these results? (They have been converted to UMS)
    Unit 1H- 70/80 A
    Unit 2H- 45/70 C
    Unit 3- 40/50 A/B

    You got EXACTLY the same as me! I got a B overall but I'm so disappointed that I got an A on one unit and a C on another!

    I was given my marks in UMS, how can I tell how close I was to the boundaries as I don't have the raw marks
