    Oh it will. Just know everything. I'm sure you're a clever gal.

    I'm stupid and I really want these grades.
    Predicted A* in further maths, hope this helps my application lol
    Thanks, it's just such hard work. The maths isn't a problem yet, but physics - oh my 😣
    You can't be stupid, you're doing further maths!!
    Wow, that's awesome! I'm predicted an A for this year, don't know about next year. Are you applying for maths?

    Yeah tbh at first I thought I wanted to goto Durham but I really want to goto Lancaster now. Changing my choices.

    What exam board are you doing?

    What dissuaded you from Durham? I really want to go there.
    Edexcel for FM, how about you?

    WJEC. Really wanted to do Additional but WJEC don't offer it, not to mention it lacks decision units.

    I really don't want to dissuade you from Durham however I just believe I will be rejected and Lancaster has such a brilliant campus.

    I haven't visited either of them 'fully' so I can't comment.
    It's just I hear many stories of Durham being a morbid/boring environment/city and I just don't think I will like it there.
    This is because I generally don't like decisions if I have doubts about them.
    ex. people in my Maths class and some Durham applicants have rejected their offer being the place.

    I'm doing my a levels a little later than planned (I'm 21, and doing them at college).

    If dreams could become reality then obviously 4 A*s but more realistically I'm aiming for A*A*AA, in Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Physics. Fingers crossed!

    GCSEs have GONE, it's now time to focus on getting outstanding A-level grades? But what grades do you actually want to see when you open that envelope on Results Day 2018?
    Comment Below...
    I mean obviously everyone wants 3A*s. If they don't they're in denial...

    I would want 6A*s but thats.... unlikely?
    Still regret my A-level choices.....

    I'm predicted BBBB Like I have no clue where that came from. (Well it came from the ALIS test which I knew I didn't do great in).
    "Reach targets" are AAAA.

    I got AAAB in my last set of practise exams in school and I want to get at least A*A*AA at the end of this year (Maths, Physics, FM and Computing).
    I probably won't though, but there's nothing to lose by trying!
