    I studied crowded coasts and rebranding I think on Edexcel Geography, neither were interesting tbh but I got an A* for A-Level Geog. Geog is so easy to get high grades in, I think my Rebranding coursework was to say how Manchester had improved since the Commonwealth Games which I made most of it up.

    anyone have any idea what

    edexcel geography
    unit 1 - 66
    unit 2 - 50
    will equate to in UMS and grade wise...
    what you expecting the grade boundaries to be around for both units...
    Go to page 14 for grade boundaries

    I'm quite surprised by how low these boundaries are! I did think they would be higher! But I'm quite happy with them to be honest! How about everyone else?

    *Cries* I failed! I got an E! I'll put it down to medical issues i've had but a U in unit 1 was not expected! However I was quite happy with a B in unit 2!
    Now to resit year 12 and cry!

    That's really unfortunate congratulations on the B though! you can just resit unit 1 instead of retaking the whole year unless other A levels were bad

    Wow i got A in Geography, did not expect it at all... the grade boundaries were shockingly low.

    But in all honesty, I did answer all questions and I did tried my best.

    GCSE students reading this, work hard and you can easily get an A.

    Good luck! im sure you will gain an A* in the end

    Also i would retake unit 2 to get that C to a B or an A but tbh i want to strongly focus on my A2 units and want to achieve an A overall so hopefully that goes well for me

    Well, I got an E in unit 1 and an A in unit 2.. which to me seems strange because I thought the first exam was fine.

    I am assuming a remark is the right option? I really don't understand what happened, I'm going to have to retake that exam regardless I think!

    don't worry about retaking so much just for extra UMS... the A* at a-level is mainly based on getting like an A or near an A at AS and the main factor is getting 90% or over in the A2 exams.
    Plus you don't want toput a huge work load on yourself particularly as all exams are in the summer. I've just finished A-level geography and managed to get an a* which i'm very shocked and please with. Trust me unit 3 and unit 4 are so stressful, I found anyway, particuarly unit 3, a 2 and ahalf hour exam!
    Your best bet is to focus all your energy on doing as much as you can in unit 3 and 4, don't worry about AS n
