    Imagine doing everything right for 3 years.

    Only needing 209 UMS in Edexcel Maths S2 to get into the med school of your dreams.

    Then getting
    60/75 in C3
    67/75 in C4
    48/75 in S2

    ****ing kill me pls. Goodbye med school :/
    Im in a similar position to you, i think my med school chances have gone too. S2 WTF i was getting high in past papers and flopped!
    I just hope its 60-62 for an A in s2
    But looking at your scores this is what i think worst case scenario: C3: 78, C4:87 S2:65 which means you'd make it comfortably!

    Meant A2
    With those raw marks you probably got 80 in C3, 82 in C4 and you'd need 47 in S2 and 48/75 should be enough to get that. I think you've gotten your 209 UMS

    i don't do edexcel, but why would that not equate to 209 UMS overall? if you got, say, 80 in C3 and 90 in C4 then you only need 39 in S2!
    Because Edexcel C4 was stupidly easy so 65 will be an A; C3 was fairly standard so 62 for an A and S2 was fairly difficult but loads found it easy: im praying 48 is at least 60
    UMS :/

    Very very borderline.

    Most people found f215 easy though, what did you think of it?
    nah, not easy, it was relatively straightforward apart from a few questions. I was quite happy at first but I'm having second thoughts...

    Thanks for the reassurance man; it really does mean a lot - I hope you get the grades you want!

    Edexcel further maths

    Aiming for A*

    Got 90UMS in D2 last year

    I think i got 66-68/75 in FP2
    Almost certain I got 72/75 in FP3

    (forget M2, I only got like 63/75)

    Hope the FP2 A* edexcel grade boundary is low...

    so say you got 84 in C4, 76 in C3 and 60 in S2 - that's still 220 which is 11 more than you need. not at all borderline; i don't think you have anything to worry about.

    I was so so so excited when I got my firm offer that I told everyone and now I'm not going to get in...now that's embarrassing. If your family are supportive then you might consider telling them but it's totally up to you who you decide to tell and when!

    i have a habit of always needing something to worry about. when my exams were going on, i was looking forward to when they finish and for my summer to begin. when my summer began, i told myself i'll only really start celebrating after results day if i get into my firm. but now, if i get into my firm, i'll probably start worrying about university workload and just look forward to next summer all over again instead of enjoying whatever is left of this summer. why can't i just live in the moment?

    hmm they seem alright. unit 4 was generally harder than usual didnt u think?
    I usually overestimate boundaries in Physics for some reason, last year I thought unit 2 would be 68/70 for the UMS cap, turns out it was really low.
