    How many GCSES have you got already? And how many are you waiting for guys ?
    I already have a C in maths (sat early in November in foundation ) and a C in core science ( tbh I'm really annoyed at myself for not choosing higher this year for biology as I found my GCSE results from last year and I had 68/69 UMS and all my other sciences were high 60's if only I realised sooner )
    I'm awaiting results in

    ICT

    I'm very nervous for Biology too What do you think the grade boundaries will be?
    Hopefully, they will be low. Maybe like around 40-something for an A*. Hopefully low 40s so that 100 UMS wont be too hard to get.

    I just did A593 this summer as I did the others last summer. But err, it was alright. Dont really remember much of it but I know I didnt have enough time to finish my answers....
    I hope the grade boundaries are low again like last years You?
    Ah ok! I did unit 2 and 3 this summer. The timings were horrible, because they gave us so many essay questions! I'm hoping it is one of those exams where it went better than you think it did! Yeah, hopefully the grade boundaries will be low

    I'm desperate for an A* in Math as it's my only real shot at an A* at GCSE, it'll probably go up on my wall xD I also did Spanish, how did you cope with the speaking assessments? I blanked and forgot my lines so I only came out with a C for the 2 assessments And was your I.T. the OCR nationals one?

    Oh basically you have 1 coursework and 2 exams in Humanities and one exam is on knowledge about current issues happening now. The other is a 2hr exam with 5 topics revised in humanities these are Religion, Politics, Human Rights, Sexual Relationships and health and the Environment.

    The Exams Officer at your school is typically the only person who sees everyone's results the day before. Your school receives the results the day before so they can be checked and put in an envelope. You'd actually be surprised at the amount of teachers who don't check the grades until after you get them. My dad is a maths teacher and almost every year he doesn't know what his students got until they tell him, even though he does have access about 2 hours later to all the student's results. Ultimately, it is you who should see your results first.
    I agree, we should.
    (Original post by Cluck)
    The teacher's I've spoken to say that the school gets it 2 days before, head of department gets to see them the day before, and a spreadsheet of the results gets emailed to subject teachers about 6am on results day itself.

    That's just one school though.
    \all schools should have the same criteria when it comes to results.
