    Yep! Did you do The 2008 crisis or just the monetary policy question? I Felt like a right G when I spoke about VAT rates being slashed, don't think many people spoke about fiscal except automatic stabilisers, I briefly mentioned quantitative easing but didn't even get to explain what it was so don't feel too left out! I can't remember but I'm pretty sure I spoke about the budget deficit and government bonds… If I didn't I'm screwed. I was quite pleased with Theme 2, the things I wasn't prepared for didn't come up so I'm all to blame if it goes bad, I'll be happy with a B considering I taught the syllabus to myself. If you spoke about interest rates, deficit and maybe even linked them to unemployment/inflation you'd get a good mark! Hardest thing in the whole paper was getting the application marks, the extract had nothing at all to do with 2008 except inflation, I can't remember the other questions but I remember the extract was useless to them lol
    I also did that paper and completely ****ed up the 20 markers on both papers and the 15 marker on paper one. I came out of the exam hall after paper 2 feeling so happy with myself because I picked the 2008 crisis and explained what QE was and talked about interest rates etc, however for whatever reason I thought the crisis was caused by high inflation and I had written the complete opposite to what I needed to write. Hopefully I picked up some diagram marks and explanation marks for the different methods. I feel like I actually did really well for the first part of the paper tbh. Relieved this is new spec, economics is something I really really reslly want to continue doing, by far my fav subject. Let me know how results day goes for you guys.

    Lol. Physics was a cock-up and a half. But it's the reformed Physics so I don't have to take notice of this grade! I sit the same exams next year in Physics so I'm all good. Maths and English have pleased me immensely and I hope that now I can go on to achieve AAAaa with the As in Comp Sci, Maths, and Physics, and the as in Further Maths and English (I already have one of those two as!)

    Future ambitions
    Oxford University. I'm yet to do my Computer Science A2 exam as that's a 2-year thing. Maths at Oxford. Failing that, Loughborough, York, Exeter, or (Heaven forbid) Lincoln. Later then to work at my current company, Software Europe, continuing to be their developer.

    Pretty much every Physics course needs an A in Maths... definitely going to try a lot harder in Maths. Got a bit too complacent. Happy with the other three results though ofcourse.

    Future ambitions
    Physics at St Andrews is the number 1 goal. I'm guaranteed offers from York and Edinburgh (I'll explain if needs be) so I'll be applying there too. Also gonna apply to Nottingham. Not sure about my 5th choice, but it might be Oxford or Imperial as a just seeing if I could get in kinda thing.

    Not so bad considering the sciences are linear. Still kind of sad for physics.

    Future ambitions

    I'm....really really really disappointed. B in my best subject, the one i want to do at uni, and a C in the subject I wanted to keep! Sociology is great, not surprised because i thought the exams went amazingly. But I got an A in Biology which is SUCH a shock - i only dropped 5 marks across both breadth and depth!!! HOW??? Anyway, now i don't know whether to drop Bio (what i was gonna drop originally) or history, ahhh

    i got an A in A level biology however, i am more concerned about the grade in As than the A2( because i know i messed up in the A2 variant 1).
    can anyone tell me what are the possible grades to get in the As and A2 in order to get an A? ( example: does a b in As and an A in A2 qualify for an A)

    any helpful answer would be very appreciated
    thanks in advance.

    Why are you guarnteed offers?
    For York, its because I did the "Next Step York" summer school. (details)

    For Edinburgh, its because I'm from a postcode with low progression to HE and go to a college where A-level attainment is below the national average. (details)
