    Same! I'm fine with chemistry and geography (I got high UMS at AS) but I'm worried about my biology results! Do you do AQA biology? I think I've got:
    60/75 unit 4
    70/100 unit 5
    40/50 ISA


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yeah I do AQA as well! You've probably got an A* by the looks of it. Unit 4 was quite easy tbh but unit 5 is always hard so I don't think you should worry.
    I just hope the isa grade boundaries are lowered (yeah right!) because I really don't know how I ended up with a C (most people in my year got Cs and Ds even Us) when it was such an easy paper
    Did you do edexcel chemistry?

    Are you on the sleep side or all nighter? I'm going to try to sleep but I don't know how well I'll manage, my hope is to sleep until I have to wake up to get ready but I don't know if I'll manage it...5 hours sleep would be good!

    this literally happened with me and D2

    (Original post by Ayman!)
    With your AS UMS? No way!
    If I scrape an E in D1, B in C4, A* in C3, I should end up with 484 UMS

    I'm scared that I've done a lot worse than I think!

    (Original post by Sacred Ground)
    Bit silly to neglect an exam because you believe you'll perform well in other exams :/


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I didn't really neglect it tbh. I just thought C4 is very hard and I need to work on it, and I might as well aim for the A* in Maths too as a safety net to meet my firm offer, so I was a lot more driven on C3 & C4 (if I scraped an A*, averaging both, I'd only need 16 UMS in D1). It's just that a fairly easy C4 paper didn't go as well as I hoped due to silly mistakes.

    Don't get me wrong, I did work hard for D1 too, I didn't neglect it because I knew that I may be in this situation. I knew all the methods, definitions, explanations but after I came out of the exam, most of my numbers seemed wrong compared to everyone else,. I comforted myself with the thought that doing well in C3 and C4 will overcome that, but coming out of the C4 exam really scuppered my confidence in Math

    There, I saw a fruit + veg worker bitterly refilling shelves and thought 'what if I end up like that??' :cry:
    Sincerely, just for that last phrase you said I wish that at some point you will end up exactly like that person.

    Look, I said bitterly because he was swearing and spewing racial abuse under his breath while he did so.

    I didn't mean that I don't ever want to stock shelves, I meant that I don't ever want to be so bitter like him.

    But if that's what you'd like for me, that's okay

    You should have a B in unit 4 and an A* in unit 5 then

    I did AQA geography - ecosystems, tectonics and world cities. I got 196/200 at AS but I didn't like this years unit 3 paper :/ I'm thinking 63/90 in unit 3

    Boundaries for biology imo:
    Unit 4 - 60 A*, 55 A
    Unit 5 - 68 A*, 62 A
