    Oh snap, it seems to have happened to the best of us (but nonetheless well done Student!)
    I'm just imagining the ATs face like wtf she met her offer but got the lower grade in the subject she wants to do 😒
    He really deserved it - he worked his arse off for physics. I remember how disappointed he was after his Unit 4 in January, but I kept telling him he'd get full UMS on Unit 5 (and he did!)

    It's just the exam board, I swear - Edexcel Physics is the worst, and it's barely actual physics anyway. :lol:

    How far were you from the A*? My Unit 5 was a lot worse than I expected, but got an A* in Unit 4 lol

    Memorise the mark schemes of every single previous ISA; learn not to answer questions like a reasonable person would, but rather in the way an examiner would; there is no time limit on the practical part itself (well, within what is possible with your teachers and school), so do lots of working for the written test there.

    That's the thing, I was so far off an A* it's really disheartening. I got 94 UMS in unit 4, 87 UMS in unit 5 but 60/60 in the coursework (lol). In total 29 UMS off in a subject that I was so sure was one of my A*s It's made me think that I am a crap physicist and not really worthy of my place tbh.
    *BTW I got 96% UMS at AS Level so I really don't know what happened

    Thanks guys

    PhysicsIP2016 so happy for you! Don't worry about A2. It's a load of crap. I got exactly 96% too at AS and when I got back my U4, I was pretty stupefied. A Levels aren't the best medium of examination. You'll be absolutely fine.

    Now go celebrate

    Hi, what are you studying? I didn't know there was a Facebook group! What is it called? I'd like to join.

    EDIT: having checked your username, that was a silly question wasn't it?

    A day has passed and I am finally over the failure I think.

    I am really happy that most of you appeared to be succesful and to those that weren't, I am sorry and hope you enjoy your time at your insurance.

    It was nice being a member of this thread and wish you all the best
