    AS :P How you think you did at A2? OCR are so dodgy!!! How did AS go? Think history is the one im most scared about cause ocr just cant mark lol
    THIS.

    I'm literally terrified about history because OCR's marking is all over the place there was some really funny stuff going on in my sources paper last year, I just looked at my marks and was like eh :lolwut:, so I just hope that A2 is ok!

    I just want to know people's plans on the day. But let's think positive, so what will you do?
    well...the plan is to wake up about 7 if i can manage to sleep, check track, get ready to go, check track again at 8, then head into school a bit early because i dont really want to open my results with everyone around. im leaving my mom and brother at home to get ready and me and my dad will go pick up my results, and then we'll go home, pick the others up and go out to lunch. i'll also have to text my nan and boss my results i suppose :P

    I'm freaked too!
    What results you waiting on? I'm waiting on physics (aqa) chemistry (aqa) and maths (edexcel).

    I want to do physics at Salford uni and need 320 points, with at least a B in maths and physics.

    Maths I'm sure I've got an A, I only needed a low E in c4 to get an A overall

    Chemistry I'm pretty sure I've got a B, and physics is the one I'm worried about!

    Hoping they'll just let me in anyway aha

    Hey sorry to ask what did you get last year in AS? And which papers did you do? (Topic wise)
    The first paper I did american westard expansion and civil war, got an A (100ums)
    The historical enquiries paper I did Britain 1805-53, got a B (79ums) first time, resat and got a C (67ums). This paper is the one which my school found the marks came back really weird on. Most of us had refined our exam technique to be getting high 90s in past papers and then it all came back Bs and Cs and there was no change in the remarks either... so much hate for sources :mad:
    What topics did you do?

    I didn't find it too bad. Nothing came up that I didn't revise but I just made some really stupid mistakes that are haunting me now haha. I remember nobody could do this fragment ion question in my class and I was that relieved that I figured out how to do it in the exam that I completely forgot the +.

    Same here! I don't think the longer questions were actually that bad if you knew your chemistry, it was just the little questions which caught me out.

    I did, I didn't particularly like it, I think I did a PW (personal worst) on the multiple choice.
