    I'm afraid I don't have the answer to either of those questions and I do not want to guess.

    But again, if your school offers Further Maths then you have very little to worry about, but as you made no comment on that statement in my previous post perhaps you are self teaching it. I see little harm in writing an email to your school to double check.
    my school does teach it - sorry. and thank you! i think i'm just overthinking things..

    That's cool, I know it is literally the worst day if anything were to go wrong that was out of your control or wasn't your responsibility. :/ good luck!

    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?

    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.
    Last I heard the exam board does this automatically doesn't it? So it's nothing to do with the school and the board just maximises maths, F.maths then maths grade in the order. Assuming the combinations are legal.

    What time does everyone get their results? My college are refusing to release them until 9.30, but all other institutions in my area allow you to collect from 8. Is everyone else collecting them at 8, or are yours later too?

    Just another stress my A2 group don't need :cry:

    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
    While everyone is at it, here are mine (for A*), tbh it's literally the luck of the draw when it comes down to +/-1 mark with GBs,

    FP2 66
    FP3 70
    M2 67
    M3 70
    S2 68

    Thank you!

    and Aph, AFAIK the algorithm does not apply to units that are locked in, and it's the responsibility of centres to recash both AS maths and further maths if they're taken to A2. i just hope my school has done just that - maths/fmaths are the only subjects that would ever require recashing in, right? surely they wouldn't forget?

    I am not sure - the information I have seen may be out of date.

    Candidates who have completed the units for AS Mathematics and AS Further Mathematics in Year 12 may certificate both at the end of that year. However, if continuing to A level in the following year they should re-enter the AS qualifications in order to unlock the units and allow the best possible A level grades to be awarded.

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

    Thats what I'm asking, because they aren't in clearing. Should I expect them to be harsh or lenient ?

    i just hope it wasn't my personal responsibility to recash my applied units because i have not done that but if it were, i'm sure my teacher would have told me..

    Well just going on what I've been told the stuff can been moved, I highly doubt that exam boards expect students to do 12 maths exams in a year. Either way it definitely isn't to do with the school to decide where to put the modules.

    Well based on whet they have said if you get ABB you'll be fine but harsh under that.

    Certainly not up to the school - I hope that I'm not implying that anywhere they are however responsible for whether it gets done or not by 'unlocking' those units.

    That's why I say if you're self teaching it in a school that has never offered Further Maths, then they may not have had the experience to do it correctly. This unfortunately happened to a friend of mine but you really don't need to hear bad news / scary stories before results day.

    I've got 2/3 grades anyway, just need a B from either two subjects.

    But still better to worry about it than be too confident and feel shocked I guess 🙄

    69-70. 66 for M2? It wasn't that hard.
    It was harder than a normal paper and m2 bounderies have been known to be low

    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?
    My uni isn't in clearing for my course either. Does this mean they might be lenient on offers? x
