    Congratulations to you all . As the above poster said, less than expected grades in AS levels really isn't the end of the world...

    You're just gonna have to work your ass off in 2nd Year! (I was in the same situation).

    I was expecting AAAAB, but got AAAAC. I'm getting the C remarked, but it's a bit of a blow.

    Was predicted AAAB, plus an A in A-Level French.

    Got AAAA + A* in A-Level French.

    Stunned to get an A in Maths to be honest and I'm not expecting to retain that A at A2-Level!

    predicted AAAB
    got AACC
    definitely unhappy but re marking one as one mark off a B and completely unlike me! Hopefully will go up to an A.

    Not really too annoyed tbh was 6 marks off an A in French and 4 marks off a B in physics so I'm just gonna repeat 3-4 exams.

    Thank you god. If I didn't believe in you, I do now!
    Got CDDE in January and was mentally and emotionally distraught!
    Did resits and got AAB! (Dropped Chem after Jan) Those 8.5 hour days sat at my desk were worth it! Feel soooo good.

    Predicted: AAABB
    Expected after exams: AABBU
    Actually got: ABCDE


    So worse than expected but seen as I'm only taking 3 on at A2 I've left myself with ABC to improve on, which is pretty good and all things considered, my position could be so much worse. I also only missed out on a B in the subject I got a C in by a couple of UMS so can quite easily up that.

    So yeah, underachieved by a bit but on the whole pretty content as it could be a lot, lot worse.

    A bit worse than expected, I was predicted AAAB but I received AABC. I was predicted the A in Economics, but I got a C. In one of my modules I received 78 UMS, but in the other I received 46 UMS! :hmmmm: However, I'm dropping Economics, so overall I'm not too phased, which leaves me on AAB going into A2, which is a nice thought.

    I was expecting atleast BBBB but i ended up with CCCD. Now i'm worried that no university will accept me, as they require AAB. But on another note, congrats to everyone who are happy with their results!!

    I know how you feel as I got similar results - I've decided that I am resitting the year which sucks.

    But surely your A2 predictions can go up by one grade?
