    I know that our Universities get our results a few days before we do, but is it like a week before (so sometime today) or is it like 4-5 days?? I'm just curious as to when they find out how bad I did 😂😂

    I think universities get our results on Sunday, though they might not look at them until Monday.

    Did anyone do Sociology and Psychology with AQA? How low do you think the grade boundaries for Sociology (SCLY4) will be? And the grade boundaries for Psychology??

    UCAS got them today, they are matching them to our applications and Sunday they send our results to the unis. So as I said a few days ago the unstoppable ball is now moving and our futures are fixed.

    I did both. Specification A for psychology. Literally no idea for psychology I found paper 4 quite difficult. Sociology unit 4 I found really hard just because I didn't suspect state crime and prevention to come up. I thought it would be suicide since this was the last year it's being taught. My entire year who took sociology found it difficult (but that could be due to not having a very good teacher) Maybe they will be lower if people found it quite difficult. I am hoping they are low!! How did you find them?

    Im so worried because both my firm and insurance choices are asking for ABB so if i dont get the grades i dont have a backup, which i know was a stupid decision on my part but i couldnt find a single university that i liked that had entry requirements below ABB

    To make things worse because im having a gap year i cant go through clearing (as far as i know) so if i fail i'll have to retake

    Yo are not the only one! I found those papers difficult too. My whole class found the SCLY4 paper difficult too, and everyone was complaining about how hard it was on the Sociology thread and on a Twitter, so there's some consensus between the students showing that everyone across the country found it hard. I saw a post from this girl on Twitter who posted an email from her teacher, and that teacher said that the paper was unfair and the most difficult paper they have seen and she was talking to other teachers from different schools and they said the same. I'm sure you've seen the petition for lowering grade boundaries, right? Although it may be funny, it shows that people found it hard and even a teacher retweeted the post on lowering grade boundaries. SCLY3 was a dream and I think I can get near full marks. I thought as that paper was easy, the the next one will be hard but I had know Idea it would be that hard! It was ridiculous because the put topics that were literally less than a page of Information after I worked hard all year studying everything and getting full marks for that to come up!

    Well for Psychology, I have no comments. Apparently they copied the same question for gender from last year? I didn't do those sections but did Aggression, intelligence and a Eating Behaviours and found it 'ok'. PSYA4 was okay, but it was research methods that I didn't like.

    I hope the grade boundaries are low.

    I've seen predictions of A* 51 A 46 B 40 C 36 for SCLY3 and A* 58 A 54 B 47 C 40 for SCLY4. The SCLY3 one seems too high to me though since A* has been 48 for the last 3 years. I could see it going up, but I hope not by that much.
