    That's amazing! What GCSEs results did you get? And what subjects did you take for AS?

    Click the little "+" thing on the right of the "reply" button and it should add quotes to the text bar at the bottom.

    Did anyone do Edexcel German and find it really hard? I'm so nervous to get the result!
    In my December mock exams I got a U in my Listening paper, and after the real listening paper this time I had the exact same feeling that I had after the mock one...hardly understood any of it.
    The reading was okay but still not much better.

    I just really wanted an A, but that's practically impossible after that disastrous exam

    But it's awesome when teachers under-mark, and then you have a more lenient marker. Unlikely, I know, but possible!
    That's what kinda happened to me! My history teacher marked us soooo harshly in our class tests this year like three quarters of the class were failing but then in our mocks another teacher marked them and we all went up by at least 2 grades! Made us feel a lot more confident before the exam

    1 A 7 Bs 1C and 1D, I took biology, chemistry, psychology and Spanish, my level of maturity and determination from year 11 to year 12 was the defining factor. I mean... I still have scars from blisters I got on my fingers from my AS revision, especially psychology that is a lot of writing (my form in writing isn't great either hehe)

    To be fair, that year it went from 120 to 136, it could just as easily go from 125 to 140.. Hopefully it doesn't though lol

    Same. I absolutely hated both exams. I normally get an A in my reading and a C in the listening but I felt like got E/D for both exams

    Hi everyone, first time posting here, and I'm new to TSR.

    Very very very nervous about Thursday. Everyone keeps telling me that they are proud of me no matter what but I can't help thinking they are just saying that to make me feel better.

    I don't think so because more than the difficulty of the paper it depends on how well students have performed and from my own school I can say that despite it being an easy paper, even the clever kids found that they made lots of mistakes and majority were not happy with how it went. That's what happened in 2014. It was clearly an easy straight forward paper but due to the fact so many people did bad the grade boundaries for that year were low.
