    My results day is a mixed bag. I only need 3 B's for my firm of Geography at QUB but I want to move to Maths and Computer Science through adjustment (still QUB).

    I'm basically guranteed the A in Geography (needed 71% in A2) but Maths and Physics will be so close to the A boundary they could go either way. It all depends on the grade boundaries and scaling. Hoping that works in my favour as I really worked for this and slipped up in C4, losing like 10 marks .. then you take off 2 or 3 for random errors and I could end up with a low B. I need 149 between C4 and S1 so fingers crossed!
    I'm going to Queen's too! If you do end up doing maths I might see you as I'm not sure whether I want to do theoretical physics or maths yet.

    Yeahhh same here !

    So how did you find F322 and F212 ??
    F322:
    Very graceful...
    Questions were all aroma gable instantly, along with most questions giving all you need to inference to tackle effectively...
    It was an exciting examination; that's off the sheet delight of having luck on everything I had generally nailed coming up in longer answers!

    PREDICTION: 94/100.
    UMS: 150/150.

    I hope that's the case!
    I feel it in my bones...

    F212:
    Also very amazing!
    The longer answers were great and I felt I spotted most of their sneaky implicit detail in hidden image questions and all..

    PREDICTION: 91/100.
    UMS: 150/150.

    I hope this is also very true!

    I FEEL IT TOO!
    Enough over my performance...
    Tell me about yours!

    Is it just me, or has the wait really dragged until last Thursday and now it's going really quickly? I don't like it!

    Yeah!
    I heard about the M1 controversy...
    You guessed it!
    S1, alright...
    I'm looking for 96-100 UMS for S1; 88-90 for C2; 90-94 UMS for C1.

    I hope it will all average out as a 95% average ideally for Cambridge!
    Oh, well...


    You go!

    Perfectly normal behaviour

    *Takes deep breath*

    F322...
    Took me by surprise how straight forward the questions where yet i still managed to make the typical 1 mark mistakes:mad:

    Prediction; 89 or 90

    F212...
    Very beautiful paper, loved the little trick near the end of exam where they put the classification orders backwards (phylum, family etc)

    Prediction; 93/100 definitely 150 UMS

    I hope it all goes to plan :rolleyes:

    Yeah!
    Well done too!
    In East London, many feel slumped by the difficulty but I didn't see it to be brutally honest to all!

    I had done my research for full marks for the Sciences on the OCR Syllabi and...

    Biology:
    F212: 86/100.
    Chemistry:
    F322: 94/100.

    What are you applying for at university?

    May I add that you've given be substantial relief that you have the same technique by calculating a prediction on UMS:Raw conversions!
