    Yeah, I understand that. I just find it hard to believe that it was so hard, 158/200 was all that was needed for an A*. I worked hard to get myself inleast 180/200 marks, but it turns out it wasn't necessary, it's just a kick in the teeth

    But surely, isn't it better to know almost for sure that you have your A*, rather than having to rely on those last few marks to make sure that you reach the boundary?
    I mean, I did so much revision and I'm hoping that I got an A* - but if I was over the boundary that wouldn't bother me as long as I got the mark

    Good luck for your results
