    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.
    sounds about right! i was worried people thought it would be higher for pha5A but if 65 is the general consensus then bring it on

    Did you do astro as well? I think I dropped around 3 on the core and 7 on the astro although I'm not sure :/

    Thanks, you too! I'm hoping for full UMS (or close to it) on the papers as I big time screwed the ISA and got 37/50. On June 14 boundaries, that's nearly a B, on last year's, it scrapes a D

    Good luck to you too!

    Oh! Good luck then, I hope you get full UMS! Luckily my EMPA went quite well and I'm hoping for a low to mid A* on that, but I've screwed up both units 4 and 5 pretty badly and I got 270 UMS last year so I hope I've got 210 this year to get my A overall

    Congratulations!! I was wondering how you know you've got a B in maths when the GCSE results aren't out for two weeks yet? Was it just through UCAS?

    Unit 5 wasn't terribly straightforward this year so hopefully 65 will be the cap .

    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!
    80 seems quite low - but hope you are right!!!!

    If they accept you then phone them up and ask them to release you into Clearing.

    You call them up first thing tomorrow. Explain that you won't be taking up a place with them and ask them to arrange for you to be placed into clearing and what they need from you in writing to make sure that's what shows on track on the 18th

    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

    No probs
    Your teacher sounds awful
    Post modernism was such a boring and dull 33 marker
    Tbh I used much of my knowledge from AS....like the family and just tried to use common sense. But my 21 markers were awful to say the least
    ScLY3 well...everybody seemed to find it easy...but knowing me lol won't be surprised if I didn't do that well......
