    omg, i seriously considered sending unit 2 for a remark because there was no way i didn't get full ums, even after marking myself harshly + checking the mark scheme! but ah well.

    how the hell did you get full ums on the potato circuit exam????!!! i think i got a mid A in that (106 or something) but i was still over the moon because i did not expect to even pass it lmao

    what i don't get, to this day, is how PHYA2 was apparently harder than PHYA1. when i finished unit 2 i thought that exam was a gift from the gods, it was literally so easy. how on earth did people generally do better in the first one???!!! how was it 48/70 for an A on one of the easiest unit 2 papers i'd ever done? HH OW
    This one post has made me soooo nervous that the markers are going to screw me over .

    Hi! quick question about tariff points. My insurance choice required 320 tariff points. What grades is this? I think its ABB, am I right? I should probably know this haha, but I just want to be sure. So nervous!
    Yep, you're right! Or something that makes up the same amount of points eg. A*BC.

    Ohh UCAS have just notified us that they have *most* of the A level files through from exam boards [NOTE - this is GOOD news, if they're late or delayed or there's problems then that can cause all sorts of problems with universities and UCAS getting Track updated in time - early delivery is definitely a positive thing, it means fewer muddles and mistakes on results day]
    ... I feel physically sick

    I did this when holding a firm offer and it didnt have any affect at all, never ended up needing it but its nice to have a backup!

    Click on your username.

    Then click on 'About Me'.

    You could probably lose loads and loads of little marks and still come out with A* in everything.

    i underestimated all of my maths modules but overestimated physics unit 2 somehow - was sure i got 120/120 but turns out i only got 113 (still averaged to 270 ums in total when accounting for unit 1 and the empa but damn. didn't see it coming considering how low the boundaries were)

    i hope that doesn't happen again fuk
    After my estimations last year I had several below and several above, so I decided this year I would estimate a worst-case scenario mark (don't score any questionable mark and sometimes go very harsh and score 0 on some) and a best-case scenario mark for each. Hopefully my predictions are more accurate this year and I'll know more comfortably.

    My friends think I'm weird because I have a spreadsheet already prepared with formulae to calculate each estimated grade.
