    Hello I guys I am 95% sure I failed English Lang/Lit pretty badly as well think I got two U's. Need some advice should I quit education or retake Lang in November suggestions will be well appreciated.
    You have to stay in education until you're 18 (unless you mean an apprenticeship?) Either way you have to retake lang to get a C unfortunately

    :unimpressed: mixed emotions right now for everyone ... 20 days until grade boundaries and 21 days for the actual day.
    Pretty nervous tbh but still around 3 weeks so enjoy and don't keep stressing. I think they've been marked and now under moderation and GBs setting. Good luck everyone, have fun over the rest of the summer.

    U have to stay in education until you're 18? I have friends who aren't doing anything after secondary school so I don't think that is true? Im sure it's up to 16!

    For AQA, I'm pretty sure that all of the papers have been marked now:

    August 2nd:

    It took them 6 days to mark ~4% of the papers so that's roughly 1.5 days to mark 1% of the papers.
    It's been 1.5 days since that tweet so.... that final 1% should have been marked

    mid to high 160s
    highest it's ever been was 169 and that was a decent year (2014 possibly?) so i'd say 164-168

    2014 was 164 for an A*, I got 167, so I hope I scraped the boundary haha. You think 2014 was easier than this years paper ?

    2014's non calculator was easier, but the calculator was harder than this year's calculator paper so the boundaries should be around the same
    that should be an a*, just have to wait a couple of weeks to find out

    For the Science's, the English's and German I am AQA. History, Maths and RS, and IT; OCR. Drama is my only Edexcel subject. The science aqa GB's were disgustingly high last year though.
    Science AQA GBs were high last year because the exams were piss easy. This year they should be well low compared to last year
