    My school cash in AS grades in year 13 just incase people retake one. So I've got 50 points from the B I got last year in the subject I dropped.
    That's the offer:

    Obtain 320 UCAS tariff points to include a minimum of 2 passes at GCE A2 or equivalent by 15th August 2016.
    As long as the AS was listed in UCAS as a pending grade then it will count against your offer.

    Yeahh its scary .

    The bounderies for edexcel maths will be so high as well i feel. But aqa chem a2 could be the lowest of all time.

    MY predictions of bounderies for the modules i did

    c3 - a* 67, A - 60 , 74 for 100 UMS
    c4 - a* 70, A - 65, 75 for 100 UMS
    m2 - a* 66, A - 59, 73 for 100 UMS
    s3 - a* 70, A - 65, 75 for 100 UMS
    fp2 - A* 67, A 60, 74 for 100 ums
    fp3 - a* 71, A 67, 75 for 100 ums

    AQA chem empa - 39 for A*, 36 for A, 42 for full UMS
    AQA chem u4 - 82/100 for a*, 74 for an A, 90 for full ums
    AQA che u5 - 84/100 for a*, 76 for an A, 92 for 100 UMS

    Edexcel econ u3 - 64 for a*, 56 for an a, 72/72 for full ums
    Edexcel econ u4 - 79 for A*, 71 for an A, 87/100 for full ums

    Now who here would be happy if my prediction was correct in th sense that they think they would have an a*?
    Doubt it will be as high as 71 for an a* in fp3. Guess we'll see in a week ^^

    Is anybody else surprised by how worried they are? I'm usually pretty chilled about exams and results day, but I'm really stressing out about these.

    I think it's because for the first time there is genuine pressure, and scary consequences of doing badly (going to insurance rather than firm. Or worse going to neither! :P)

    Yeah im surprised on how calm I am although that wont last for long lol.

    I agree with you - there is definte pressure and a lot hinges on these results. It was the same for me in AS as I needed high UMS for Cambridge (which i got so i got the interview). Also there are family and friends that add to the pressure. If I dont do well (which is a possibiliy) then I will have lots of family members and friedns being shocked and it will be embarassing. And plus i dont want to tell my results to people who will take the piss if I fail, However whether good or bad the results just remember you can still achive your dreams in life

    Good luck!!!

    Even though I messed up an easy 5 marker on that paper I feel blessed to have done it instead of last year's 😂

    Thought I'd interrupt and predict boundaries too for A*:

    C3 - 67
    C4 - 69
    FP2 - 67
    FP3 - 70 (hopefully lol)
    M2 - 67
    M3 - 69/70/71

    Edit: tbh I have no idea for M2, M3 or FP2 but there's my guestimates

    I didn't really feel much pressure for AS results as I had no particular unis in mind; maybe that's why this year's results day has hit me so hard :P

    My dad went to the same Uni as I've firmed, so I'm defo feeling the family pressure too :/

    Good luck to you too!

    That SCLY4 exam was just horrible! I feel like I'm not going to get into my firm because of that exam and plus the Psychology exams were horrible too. I need AAB for Warwick, but I think I'll end up with A*BB/C - A* in History, B in Sociology and B in Psychology. The SCLY3 exam was a dream and I feel like I can get near full marks, but SCLY4, I just did horrific in it! I'm so scared for results! Thanks AQA for messing us up
    I'm not that confident for SCLY3
    I really need an A in Sockology because Politics was just awful...and English I am certain I got a B
    I want to go to SOAS!

    I think everyone has that feeling.. I'm dreading it to. My plan is to be the first one to arrive and then leave.

    If I get ABB/AAB/AAC I would be at the temple every week.

    Yeah that's true I'd forgot about that question, I think I did double IBP in the end.

    I don't actually need an A* in FM for my course but I think I'm so close I'd still be a little annoyed if I missed out... Good luck for results day 🙏🏾
