    Can someone please tell me ... when you get exam certificates will I get ones for the units C1,C2,S1 or just an overall one ??
    I think you get one certificate per exam board that covers all exams that you took with them

    I am also repeating this exam, I got an E in it last year
    Aha how do you think it went?

    I was looking at some mark scheme and reckon I have easily got a D

    Really hated the last question and the second logs one but the rest wasn;t too bad

    Yes, Arsey's. It came out a few hours after the exam. I'll link it if you want to have a look

    I hate to ask because it's hard to tell, but what would anyone reckon 63 in C1 and 64 in C2 is in terms of UMS??

    If it makes you feel any better, I got 80 in C1 and 81 in C2 last year and got predicted an A*, so it is possible, just speak to your teachers

    I suppose it depends on your school/teacher, but I was predicted A* while being a bit under 270 UMS in the first year. Just try to make a good impression on your teacher.

    Haha, well I feel like the A* prediction coming true is increasingly unlikely I just want to scrape an A to get into uni, so if I do that I'll be happy!

    what would happen if u guys got above your predictions, would u reapply to a better uni next year, or just stick with the one your aldready accepted into?
    (i dont think ill get good predctions from my school, but im planing on re sitting c2, and maybe other modules i didnt do well in, to get good over all alevel grades)

    You'll be at University for 3 or more years, so you should aim to get into the one where you can see yourself being happy with the uni, the course, job prospects etc. So if you're not happy with the one you're set to go to you don't have to go there.

    There's the option of Adjustment - which is something you do if you get better grades than the condition for your firm - so it may save you from taking an extra year.

    If not you can finish A2 and take a gap year, and do stuff to boost your application and keep up your interest in the subject.
