    Ahh because it's a London uni and it's expensive? Respect for getting an offer though!

    You revised a lot I'm sure you did amazing. At least you get to see if you go the grades for Cambridge. I have to go in and get my results and then see if I can apply for Bristol/Nottingham or not

    Yeah, and it's 'not worth moving away from home for' apparently.

    Thanks, I really hope all that revision shows itself in my results

    Ahh are you applying with a gap year? I really hope you do well! What course do you want to study?

    The very first one of this thread scroll down till you see 'Exam Papers and Mark Schemes'. Only Edexcel's are available for now though.

    My Uni isn't going into clearing so they lowered their asking grades of AAA to ABB.

    Does that mean they will be harsh and only accept those that have met or exceeded or because there is no clearing they may be lenient?

    The people who have special access to exams materials from AQA/Edexcel have said these would be available to them on 17th but I don't think they guaranteed they could retrieve them and post them on time. Public access won't be till early next year I suppose. x

    if my AS maths and further maths modules were cashed in last year, does that mean that they cannot be rearranged and are locked in as part of A2 maths and further maths respectively - even if a certain combination would give me better grades overall?

    for example, these were my modules last year:
    AS maths:
    C1 - 87 (lol)
    C2 - 95
    M1 - 99

    AS further maths:
    FP1 - 79 (lololol)
    D1 - 98
    S1 - 95

    does this mean that C3, C4 and M2 MUST go to my A2 maths grade, or can D1 and D2 slide over to maths?

    Anyone else refused to join freshers group chats or Facebook pages in the fear you might jinx your results? 😳
    My year group has a group chat, needless to say everyone is *****ing themselves on it.

    I would describe your school as 'incompetent' if they have not re-cashed your units, or whatever the term is (i.e the units can be moved around as per the algorithm or whatever it is that maximises both grades) so if your school offers Further Maths as a taught subject then you probably have nothing to worry about.

    Did anyone do AQA English Lang Lit and study the Crucible?

    I would absolutely love an A but I think I got a B :/ Which I'm really nervous over.

    if i find out on results day that because of a cashing issue my grades have not been maximised, can i have them recashed then and there? or is my result permanent?

    would it be worth emailing my school and asking them now, or will it make no difference?

    Oh yeah I got that one from my parents too. I just want to get away from my mum tbh. Would kill for an offer from Bristol or Nottingham but I need an A in English this year because I'm doing it for A2.

    Erm no I decided to retake AS and so I'm doing 2 ASs and 1 A2.. I want to do English or History preferably. Not worth moving out for according to my delightful mum
