    For psychology I think the grade boundaries will be.
    PSYA1- A 53/54, B 49 C 42 D 37 (thought it was similar to 2013/2012 papers)
    PSYA2- A 55, B 50, C 45 , D 38
    PSYA4- A* 60, A 53, B 45 C 39 D 32

    For PSYA4 I think the grade boundaries will be lower than last year. Last years paper was a replacement and so they put easy questions in. This year I think that research methods was good as it contains mostly AS questions but not as easy as last years. However they repeated questions which may have lead people not being prepared.

    I've guessed.
    Do you have predictions for PSYA3?

    There's no way to know I'm afraid.

    It's very common to be accepted with a dropped grade but if there are issues with capacity (ie not enough lecture space/accommodation/staff) or they have evidence showing that people who get a B tend to fail or drop out but people with an A do well then they could decide to reject you.

    Universities don't reject applicants out of spite or snobbery - it is because they either cannot fit them in or they genuinely think that those grades will be setting an applicant up to fail.

    (Manchester is a great insurance though - IIRR you're guaranteed accommodation as an insurance student, only Manchester and Southampton guarantee that that I know of (there might be others but those are the two big ones))

    I need to get BCC up to BBB so yeah, kinda need to nail my A2s.

    I'm fairly confident of keeping the B in politics, as it was a high B and exams went OK. History I had one retake that went well and coursework was a B so I'm hopeful I may be able to get that up to a B overall. English however I didn't retake; my coursework this year was an A but I'll need an A in my exam this year to get a B overall. Don't think that'll happen, just gotta hope I can get into my firm with BBC/BCC!

    The biology exams were hard especially the second one with loads of practical questions. I found the both hard, dont know about you! I guess the grade boundaries will be quite low depending on how all students did. Other people from my college found it hard as well. We'll see anyways!

    Good luck!
    Good luck to you too!!

    On monday i will be getting around 30cm of my hair cut off to donate to the little princesses trust and also to get sponsored to raise money for melanoma uk which unfortunately caused my stepdad to pass away.
    For a great cause and also something to distract my attention away from results day and to focus on raising money for a good cause. If anybody would like to sponsor me this is the link which also explains more about it all. Thanks in advance. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Gemma-Broom1

    yeah the reason why im still fretting even though I'm AS is because I'm not if my teachers will predict me grades I need if I don't do well this year if I don't then ill try to convince them to predict me what I need for uni bug what if they don't budge

    Can you not ask your teachers to change it? At my college, if you ask to be predicted AAA, they'll do it no questions asked lol
