    B 52.9 average to 55 this year - but lowest since January 2013
    C 45.2 average to 50 this year - but on par with last 2 years
    D 38 average to 40 this year
    E 30.9 average to 40 this year - highest ever
    C2
    A 61 average to 63 this year - highest in last two years

    unfortunately anything less than an A grade in maths will look ' bad ' to oxford so idk try not to get too worked up about getting in as your best bet would be too focus on your A2 and then try for oxford during a gap year provided you get the grades but depends how you did in your other subjects and your contextual info .. i wish you well
    Even an A grade itself won't look very good for an Oxford Physics course.

    hmm I seriously messed up the C2 exam and consequently I am dreading seeing that sheet of paper tomorrow. Tbh, C1 didn't even go that well for me either. I was on track to get an A... but I think I'm looking at a C tomorrow. Quite disappointed at this as I have been looking at applying for AAA courses. Do you think I still have a chance at receiving offers if I do get a C in Maths?

    More importantly, with a C at As-level maths is it possible to get an A or B as a final grade if I resit the c2 exam and maybe c1?

    Thank you.

    I feel exactly what you feel. This year I feel they were a bit harsh, there were lots of differences in the papers like on s1 there was only 6 questions when there is usually 7 or 8. What kills me most is the uncertainty, I have no idea what I will get tomorrow.

    So i'm getting my AS results tomorrow and I'm really worried about my maths as I think the grade boundaries are high, whilst I found the exams (edexcel) far more difficult than the past papers and mocks. I tried so hard for a B so I will be so sad if I get less than a C. I feel like this may mess things up and I will have no chance of getting into uni.

    I actually enjoy maths and am not bad but I feel those exams were harsh.

    I'm sure there will be people on here who have been through this, so if you have any advice I would be grateful.

    Anyone else feeling the same: best of luck for tomorrow!
    I feel the same, don't worry you are not alone Seriously hope we all do okay though!

    the suspense is truly killing me inside haha.

    I did the D1 module... i know excuses don't matter but- although the level of difficulty of content was decent , in my opinion Edexcel added in way more time consuming questions than any previous d1 paper (many diagrams to draw and long algorithms to work through) which resulted in many students feeling pressurized and missing small questions out which equates to lots of little marks being lost.
    Luckily I personally finished, but it was very rushed and I am scared to see what mark I have got now!

    looooooooooooool, come back to us and report the D your gonna get.
    I remember maths fondly, the look of regret and lose of the will to live on my fellow maths students when we got our AS results. All i can say is E is a pass at A-level, take comfort in that Just expect the worst and you won't be as shocked as maybe 75% of the people, including me, when getting your maths results.
