    :dontknow: I associate squirtle with imperial

    WJEC my C4 was an absolute ***** (rumours from examiner of 30-40 marks for a C, so hoping A* boundary is low too) but my C3 only had one hard (functions :mad:) question!

    Which A2s did you do? Is there a subject specific A*?
    Well that's certainly interesting

    Oh oops, for some reason I thought I'd seen you on the edexcel threads. Ah nevermind. Wow, that's very low, hope you got what you wanted. I mean, you could always resit if you had to, doing C3 and C4 in year 11 is no mean feat.

    Geography, History and Maths. No subject specific A* thankfully, and maths looks like my most likely one (although it's possible I could get an A* in none, or all). I think maths hands out a very large proportion of A*s (like 19%) compared to history and geography (around 6%) so I'm quite glad I took up maths. What have you picked for your A levels?

    It is kind of low at A2 - an A in the 40 mark essay was something crazy like 24 at one point!

    How did you find the AS/A2 content. I did cold environments/global health/rivers and population. I have no idea how it went although I think all the 15 markers went well. Good luck to you

    What did you do for A2 and what did you get at AS

    Is this Biology? I don't do it, but I know those at my college were complaining about EMPAs getting marked down before, or something?
    Bloody hell I hope they aren't marked down, ill only have literally about 7 marks anyway!

    am dreading results day need AAB and dont think i've done it, messed up my psyb4 exam and the biology f215 one :/ i hate the wait til results, the last couple of days always drags so bad, and then i always wake up at 6am and can get my results at 6.30am so thats the longest half hour ever, so will be ten times worse this year
    if i miss by one grade and don't get in, is there any chance of writing to or ringing the uni to convince them to take me? or would it not be worth it?

    6/7 sides for each? Wow! I only got about 3! :eek: Well the annoying thing about WW1 is that for the whole year my teacher was like 'this is probably the question that will come up, you should really work on this question and this poem' and in the exam, that question came up. The problem? I didn't read it and did the other one -.- oh well, will be fine :L Frankenstein sounds really interesting! I guess if you love Jane Eyre though the change could be annoying :\ Yeah I'm carrying it on, what about you?
    Yes, see I ramble too much! This is actually one of my biggest problems. I really struggled with the word limit for the coursework. We couldn't go over 2000 words, but my first draft was about 2900....eventually I managed to cut it down to exactly 2000, but it was a challenge! Haha. Aahh omg! Well if you think it will be fine then I'm sure it will! It's best to remain positive about it I guess Cool, yup I'm carrying on. I think the course will be good next year, we're studying a bit of Shakespeare I think and I like reading plays so it should be good What course are you planning on taking at uni?

    Nope, fitzwilliam XD do you have an offer/are you applying next year?



    Haha, why's that?

    Yeah, you're on Edexcel right? C4 wasn't too hard but a few questions were so easy to make silly mistakes on - annoying. I'm sure you did well enough though

    I just knew a geographer going to Emma from my school, hence I asked lol

    I don't want to find out now, but as soon as I finished my exams I wanted to know. Need someone to chloroform me on Wednesday night, that's the only way I'll sleep.

    My ingenious plan: cook cookies on the Wednesday. They'll either work as consolation food or celebration food on the Thursday. It cannot fail.
