    The Spanish assessments were ok i guess i got a B and an A, and i think i did Edexcel Dida I.T. which was really bad only hoping for a pass. Also i hope you do well on your Maths
    nice one, and the OCR nationals was purely coursework and fairly easy, most of the class was just browsing the internet for about a year of the course xD they're quite picky with what they want though, I wouldn't be surprised if I missed out on a distinction because I forgot a transition in one of my slides

    I did a science BTEC in Year 9 but I have no idea what it's worth so I don't count it. I'll have a FSMQ aswell.
    I think the science BTEC's are equivalent to 2 GCSE's- lot's of people in my school did them. I know I may sound stupid to alot of people on here but what qualifictaion is the FSMQ? (-is is something to do with Maths:confused:)

    Guyss. You see with OCR Nationals? Would you say a distinction is an A*, so for example could I say I got an A* in OCR Nationals ICT or not? Just wondering. :P

    My teacher made EVERYONE below an A re sit ... Makes sense though considering he actually sets the papers and he is one of the chief examiners on the WJEC, anyone remember last year when 2 history teachers were on the news and they were accused of given their pupils information about the papers?... Yeah that was my teacher.

    yes Free standing maths qualification .. its something you do after GCSE maths if you did it early for example harder than GCSE easier than AS

    Yep. Its Maths. Its liek a bridging qualification from GCSE to A-Level. It covers a lot of C1 material and a few pieces from C2, M1 and S1.

    It's Level 3 (GCSE is Level 2) and stands for free standing maths qualification. It's not an A-Level or GCSE but somewhere in between.

    My coursework is also at a B but borderline, I said that anyone off the street is better than Churchill or something but 3 exams?! :eek: I only had to do 2, one on British society and the other on America around 1929-1940, the entire class failed on the first one, people who got A's and A*'s in their mocks got C's and D's in the exam (like me )

    Thats good. The history teachers were like if you get a C or above thats perfect. So a B was brilliant to her. Disadvantages of attending a low performing state school :/

    Thnaks for the replies everyone. I'm looking to do A-Level Maths, so do you think doing this qualification would be worthwhile doing?

    I think the closest it can be properly called is an A-A* bracket grade, I think that's what my teach said, why couldn't they just use letters like everyone else :/

    I wish i did the FSMQ, GCSE maths was not a good enough challenge plus the FSMQ would have been a better bridge towards A level Maths.

    Mine was a mid B grade ,
    Yeah I had to sit the following :-
    Germany 1929-47
    USA 1910-29
    USA 1929-2000
    Honestly though so many people had to sit the entire 3 exams! I had to sit 2 one after the other! I really wasn't happy about that
