    40% of 2015 firm accepted students missed their predictions (not offers - those stats are almost impossible to crunch) by 2 or more grades.

    You know that percentage question in physics which no one was sure about. Turns out it is 17% and not 33%. Everyone was convinced it was 33% in the end. It was a weird question.

    I messed up too but hopefully we both still make it into our firms. Exams suck.

    Hopefully we'll have done enough! I kept on all 4 subjects for A2 also and I'm really hoping it works in my favour. It's so annoying knowing all the Scottish know if they're in or not too.


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Ahh, well done on keeping all four subjects for A2. Not like this makes it any better: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-37010640

    Damn you Scottish students.

    Chemistry

    Unit 4 A* 75
    Unit 5 A* 77-78
    Well my worst case scenario is 72 in Unit 4 and 78 in Unit 5 (more realistically 74 and 79)
    I need 105 ums average at least on Unit 4 and 5. The A* boundary is 108 ums so I've probably missed it :')

    Ahh, I guess the grass is always greener on the other side, sometimes I get annoyed with all the hustle and bustle but then I remember that it's a twenty minute train ride and I can be in the heart of the city in no time. Context was worth the majority of the marks in my lit exam too, and that sucks, when you've put all the work in but you hate the question ooh they all sound like great texts, especially Albert Camus - I studied it in French this year (L'etranger) and it was cool learning about existentialism and his beliefs on the self, but it was bloody difficult having to write an essay entirely in french and making sure your grammar was perfect. For one year, 2 exams seems like a lot to ask for in that kind of depth - on top of all your other exams. We only had one and coursework of course but it still felt like a lot to know, on top of trying to create a sophisticated argument. I love The Catcher in the Rye!!
    I know what you mean, some people say it's objective because it's an exam and they are ex teachers and they know what a sophisticated argument is blah blah, but the discrepancy can be huge (first hand experience, anyway). It's more than possible to move between a B and an A* depending on who marks your paper - especially when there's only around 5 or 6 marks in it overall, with two essays!
    I find context to be the hardest thing though! Trying to fit it in with relevant analysis is so hard. I absolutely loved Camus, it was so different from anything I've ever read/studied before and I even bought a copy of the book myself after studying it! A friend of mine does drench also and she studied it too and said the exact same thing as you, it must have been so difficult to write a solid essay but with perfect grammar/sentence structure too.
    Our AS year only had one exam and then coursework so it was such a lovely year, but there was just so much to cover this year to the point where you were drowning in literature 😂
    I agree 100%! I don't have any first hand experience with discrepancies but a few of my friends have and it's crazy how the marks can change so significantly!

    Aha thank god i'm not the only one, tell me about it. How did you find unit 5 bio and what are your predictions of the GB ?
    Unit five was a little tricky but not super hard compared to previous years. I honestly have no idea. Very low sixties especially in unit four for the A*. Unit five maybe only be two or three marks higher.

    I think unit 4 bio will be around 61 for an A* and unit 5 bio will be around 63 for an A*. How did you find unit 5 relative to previous years?
    I found unit five slightly harder. But only slightly compared to previous years. I quite liked the article questions.

    Over 90% for an A? Has that ever happened before?
    It was 67 for an A in S2 last year, I came out looked at the answers and i got 65 I was confident until I saw the grade boundaries. Got 76 UMS
