    Did anyone do the new edexcel history/eng lit courses?
    I did and I'm really disappointed:
    Predicted AAAA
    Got AA, B (English) C (History), though my English paper was really weirdly marked and I was one off a B in History. I don't understand what went wrong, I thought I did OK in every paper and I've got As in English from the beginning of the year, and Bs and As in every History essay I've written... Bye bye Oxford at any rate, and all the preparation for it D:

    I'm so happy :D I thought I'd get lower than Bs for econ and compsci as I messed up one compsci paper and econ is hard.

    Aww you still did really well though! You can always improve for A2 and there's a chance you'll still get predicted the grades you need anyway :console:

    I'm in the same boat as you for History ;-; I don't even understand what happened, I thought I would at least get a B but I got a C instead. Do you think there is any point in getting it remarked? Is History a subjective subject?

    Maths: predicted grade A/ achieved grade A

    Chemistryredicted grade A/ achieved grade B
    History: predicted grade A/ achieved grade C

    Very pleased with maths and German, and chemistry I expected as the exams were hard but it doesn't count towards next year so it's all fine but really shocked by history, I had been getting A's all year round and the exam felt no different so to end in a C is quite disappointing but I am dropping it anyway so overall they are quite good results

    I'm obviously delighted - bit confused about the French where I got a C in one module and A in another, but I guess it averaged out to a low A. I've dropped further maths, which was a good choice since I managed to get a D in the mechanics module Ecstatic overall

    Future ambitions
    Study medicine - currently thinking of applying to Manchester, KCL, UCL, and maybe Oxford depending on how confident I feel

    I got 120 points in aqa chemistry 7404 and a B how do I work out how far away from an a I was because the grade boundaries on aqa don't seem to be in points?
    120 is the minimum UMS for a B grade - so 105 would be C, 120 B, and 135 A. It isn't your UMS, it is simply the lowest needed for a B.

    Obviously I'm very happy, was very surprised as I was preparing for an AABC (although I would have been happy with that as well). Got As in all the modules apart from the written French exam, which was a high B

    Future ambitions
    To be happy, results aren't the be all and end all, but I would enjoy going to university or having a higher apprenticeship

    Cambridge do look at your AS results when considering your application so it might be easier for you to apply for Oxford instead. It's difficult to say how it might affect you without knowing the specifics - I'd speak to one of your teachers and see what they say. Good luck!!

    WELL DONE ON YOUR AMAZING RESULTS EVERYONE!
    Here are my results
    -FRENCH: Predicted by teachers: A / Predicted by me: A / Actual result: A (I got 100%! So happy!)
    -SPANISH: Predicted by teachers: A / Predicted by me: B / Actual result: A
    -GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS: Predicted by teachers: B / Predicted by me: C / Actual result: A !! (I got 98% in this which really surprised me!)

    I'm so happy, I've had a really tricky year so AAA was such an achievement! I'm dropping politics next year so I will be doing French, Spanish and Psychology (it's linear so all exams are next year!)

    I do the new edexcel english and history AS levels. I was predicted B's in both and got C's in both, however i was very surprised because i did minimal revision for history and thought id really messed it up but actually managed to pass! Well done on your grades, they may not be as high as you wanted but theyre still very impressive and you should be proud of yourself.
