    Oh. Then why the big drop?
    I'm not really sure. I just don't think he really cared about it and so didn't pay attention in lessons or put any effort into it.

    English literature B - AQA & Sociology AQA. Crapping myself for English, I want to studying it in University. Also, if I don't at least get a C in both subjects then I get kicked off them - yay added pressure!

    Same I think I've got the A covered because I only need 32/100 UMS in either FP2 or FP3 (I took more modules than required) which is usually about 25-30 raw marks. Don't think I got the A* though because in FP2 I ran out of time so lost 10-15 raw marks in that. FP3 however was a disaster though - I completely messed up the differential equations and the maclaurins series question was a nightmare. Was getting 90%+ in all the past papers though - must have been the exam pressure which doesn't go very well with FP3. Probably lost about 20-30 raw marks in it. Grade boundaries are never below 90% for an A* in FP3 anyway so I've got no chance. Maybe I should have done FP4 instead.

    As for maths A level I've definitely got an A* secured because I did C3 and C4 in Jan. Hoping for A's in my other subjects. (biology and chemistry).
    Yeah, I messed up C4 with silly mistakes. Didnt change calculator to radian -.- and vectors last few parts. I hope grade boundaries for C4 is low. It has been low for 3-4 years so hope it will be the same this year. I need 82UMS for A* in Maths. Econ, I need 47/120UMS for an A so thats done. Just need the A* in normal Maths and I got my A*AA for Bath! FP3, without that silly mistake, I would have only lost 5-8 marks on the last question but with it, I think 15-20 marks so A* gone. FP2 and FP3 grade boundaries are always high. I cant get A in Chemistry anymore cuz I got 0UMS in ISA(When I got 57%??) but definitely a B

    Good luck with your results man

    Ah I know! I didn't have time to read through my essays at the end of the exam so I probably made loads of mistakes or repeated myself without realising. I get so panicky in exams because of the time limit :/
    Well exam panic always makes you go faster, which english lit area did you do?

    I dont know? I dont know how it works or what they put on their website, can you explain?
    At 8am on results day, track should be updated with your universities decision based upon your grades.

    So in the morning, it wouldn't hurt to check. So that you won't have to worry about what you've actually achieved, since you'll already be in.

    Good luck by the way, you'll be fine.

    You might not have done as well as you wanted but you didn't fail it surely . The Unit 2 stuff was really good, Unit 1 was just mostly calculations...

    Haha, I pretty much convinced myself we would never happen so I'm in a state of shock now that said when we were texting last night he was definitely a lot sweeter than normal :love: so it shouldn't be that surprising. . .in theory

    Yea C4 was a killer. Honestly not expecting much from it, but hopefully grade boundaries are low, as you said.

    I'm waiting for History and psychology too! Which history topics did you do?
    We did two history topics: The Reformation in Europe and American Civil rights. The exam board was OCR. What about you?
