    I once studied the axioms in euclidean geometry it was so interesting.
    Like is a line a line definitions of intersections.

    I caved and looked at boundaries. Think I got literally the A* boundary mark, but then again last year I thought I did way better when I looked at the boundaries and results day was a nasty shock :dontknow:

    Okay.

    What the f*cking hell. I am so angry.

    Chemistry boundaries are high as the f*cking sky. No way did I get higher than a B in it, wtf I am so angry.

    As for Physics, I have no idea why they are so low lol. I think I got the A* tbh, and I only needed an A in Physics for my offer.

    Overall, definitely met my A-level offer. However, I am angry at myself for not getting an A in Chemistry but I guess A*A*A*B is still good? Doesn't seem as impressive though

    Let's see how STEP goes tomorrow.

    I know right. Wtf is that boundary. Like 55/60 for an A* in F324. This makes me so fucjung angrg holy dhit. Does your offer require Chemistry?

    Probably should've revised for more than a weekend tbf, but F325 was too boring ffs

    Weird boundaries but edexcel did OK.
    Physics, think min A, maybe even A* think I have a very decent chancd(thought id nver say that).
    Additional Further.
    Abit dissapointed but hey still decent.
    Seems as if I have missed it by literally one raw mark in D2 automatically giving me a B. Damnit but hey, ain't over till its over. I'm just happy Edexcel physics didnt rape everyone.

    I swear to god I'm really stupid right now. I think I'll panic more if I make my offer than if I miss it...

    Why do I care more about missing the A grade in Chemistry due to high grade boundaries, which is not on my offer, than getting an A*, definitely at least an A, which is on my offer?

    I looked at them 😫 I said I wouldn't but I did. Grade boundaries seem okay for Bio and Physics I think I may have got A*s there potentially. No way have I got an A* in FP2 or FP3 but hopefully applied modules can bump that up, maybe...

    Physics were good boundries ngl

    Not happy with those boundaries all...

    72 for 90 UMS in M3 is a pain and very little margin for error in Chemistry.

    Didn't you get full in M3?
    I am worried about method marks as if I lose 1 I get 97 instead of 100ums. Would be gutted

    I was pretty sure I did at the time but wouldn't be too surprised if I got 71/72 somehow...

    Hopefully I'm just being pessimistic

    Hope I am aswell wih my other modules. If i get 1 raw mark up in 1/2 of them I will get the A*. Crazy.
    If not i get a B haha.
