    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.
