    How did you think the aqa u4 chem was? I feel the bounderies may still be higher than u5

    Chem 4 was plain weird, definitely the hardest Chem 4 paper I've done - I think the boundaries will drop a lot (like 5 marks per grade)
    Chem 5 was pretty standard, nothing surprising in that exam tbh - straight forward

    How did you find them?

    A2 results is simply a different ball game compared to AS, NO ONE wants to retake A2 whilst their mates are at uni. At least with AS you knew you were dropping a subject and you had the retakes to fall on.

    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
    Ahh ok thanks! Do you think there's any chance that my Unit 5 could be full UMS? Cos I'd really need my Bio to average into an A*...

    Oh right I did Edexcel. You'll be fine with Geog given the high AS. I hate my Unit 3 too lol.

    Ugh! Tell me about it- I got a U in my AS biology ISA haha. I did AQA chemistry though
    God ISAs are the worst! The raw marks between the grades are enough to make me throw up lol
    Dunno how AQA's papers were but Unit 4 for Edexcel Chemistry was ridiculously hard Unit 5 was easy but I don't even know what to expect with the boundaries

    Yeah, for really long essays that's definitely true, for smaller essay subjects (geography, Psycology ect.) you can probably get a reasonable estimate. Even in science you can have to revise your estimates too after looking at unofficial mark schemes.
    I agree and yet I don't think I can do an estimate for my Geog lol, cos like, having looked at the mark scheme, for one question (15 marks) I've met exactly one descriptor within all 4 'levels' available for the question, so I have no idea at all how they'd have marked it and which level they'd have put me in. Would they just give up and give me the median mark like 7.5 lol?

    as long as you meet your offer, is there any evidence to suggest that universities mind if you don't meet your predicted grades? eg. if an offer was A*AA and i got A*AAB but i was predicted A*A*A*A, will universities look down on this despite me going there?
