    Comp Sci- A
    Physics- A
    Maths- B, Gutted. (C1 62 Resit next year C2 89 D1 74 Maybe Resit)
    AS Further- Next year
    Possibly self taught A2 FM

    Fun fact: this year we did about 25 mocks/exams in maths. Only 3 I didn't get an A in. 2 of them were in my exams (((((((((((

    Wanted to do maths at Cambridge but RIP the dream. I'll still apply because I won't be able to live with myself If I don't atleast try.

    Grats everyone

    Well, wow. Considering how screwed my class in Philosophy (teacher got fired halfway through the year) and how badly I felt I did on my History exam, I am very happy with this report. Philosophy I self-predicted a C, History a B. Far as I know I'm only one in my year doing AS Levels with straights As - will need to ask around, but otherwise I've done very well.

    Future ambitions
    I'm able to change the universities I aspire for - I have Leeds (AAB), Birmingham and Hull (both ABB) remaining in the crosshairs. I've gotten rid of Southampton and Leicester (both BBB universities), with Birmignham and Hull replacing them as my absolute last resorts and I'm now aiming for Edinburgh and Durham (AAA) as my top choices.

    Comments:

    I am absolutely over the moon about these results. I was always aiming above those targets I was set, but I never ever expected to do this well. My ultimate dream is to do Dentistry, and this year, I've just been working extremely hard to try and get closer to that goal. All of my teachers told me that I should just try something else because it's very difficult. I understood their reasons - my academics were not solid at all, and I just sounded so naive. However, I really wanted to prove them wrong. And I finally did.

    If I was a bit more frank, I am a bit gutted about Chemistry. Throughout this entire year, I was constantly getting good scores that even my teacher began to question my target grades. If I was expecting an A in a single subject, it was definitely chemistry. However, it's linear and doesn't count, so I will definitely work much harder next year and try and grab that A*.



    A2 Year:
    So, I've secured AAA predicted grades, with a possibility of an A* Maths predicted grade. I absolutely smashed the exam this year, if I must say so myself. I still haven't got my break down for biology, so I might actually have done really well. However, I will not keep my hopes up and just expect the worst, which ironically is an A - so technically it's not the 'worst', it will just be missing out on an A* predicted grade.

    With my current AAA predicted grades, I can possibly apply to Sheffield (AAA) for Dentistry and I am absolutely happy about that. I went to their open day and I fell in love.

    I don't know if this is the right place to post but I really need some advice!
    I got my AS results
    Psychology (A)
    Sociology (A)
    Philosophy (A)
    Chinese (A)
    Biology (C)

    I want to do Psychology in university and I am aiming for UCL + russell group unis, I studied the hardest for Biology yet I did the worst in it. I am torn on whether or not to drop Biology or Philosophy. I know the course is competitive so I don't want to weaken my application, but I'm risking a solid AAA maybe even A*AA compared to an AAB if I continued on with Biology. What should I do? I emailed the admissions tutor and I'm waiting for a reply. I'm also doing the EPQ, i know it won't be a part of the offer but would that compensate me not taking Biology? Please help!!!

    Applying to LSE to do politics & international relations w BBBC? I know these are pretty low but I know for sure my teachers will predict me all As.. I was just wondering whether this will be a huge setback? Pls be nice haha
    It will be a setback as you know LSE is highly competitive and even if they do predict you all As you still got bbbc when others did get all As and will be predicted A*s that doesnt mean you shoudnt try though you never know with these things good luck

    • BTEC Applied Law: Predicted Distinction* / Achieved Distinction*
    • Government & Politics: Predicted A / Achieved A
    • English Literature: Predicted B / Achieved A
    • History: Predicted B / Achieved B
    Comments and reactions

    I was initially disappointed with the B in History because it means the Cambridge dream is over, but I soon got over it because a lot of people - people who did better than me in GCSE - did a lot worse. Politics was a bit interesting because I got 66 in Unit 1 but 98 in Unit 2, so we're going to get the script back to see if it's worth getting that first paper remarked because I'm really shocked it's so much lower. Overall though I'm very pleased with these results! The only other thing I'm concerned with though is whether I'll be able to meet AAA entry requirements next year. I honestly think the B in History might be my limit. I couldn't have done any more revision than I did.

    Future ambitions

    I'll apply to study Law at universities like Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, etc. I wanted to do investment banking and while I would have been in a better position for that if I could have applied to Cambridge/UCL, I still have a shot if I can get into Warwick.

    Comments and reactions

    This was surprising to say the least! I'd been dreading results day for ages but I was so so happy when I found out what I got. I really am grateful, and at the same time it's taught me not to be so pessimistic 😂😂😂 Was especially surprised about Maths, barely had time to finish the syllabus so I was honestly racing around the clock trying to fully understand everything and get enough practice.

    Future ambitions

    I want to do either Economics or Law, still haven't really decided but I'm supposing I should soon... I was thinking of applying to LSE, maybe even Oxford... I have yet to decide.

    Comments and Reactions
    Overall, I'm pretty happy with my results, apart from Chemistry. I'm kind of annoyed at myself over it, because it's the lowest grade I've ever got for a qualification. It doesn't help that there aren't any marks on that or Biology (my two linear subjects), so I can't even see how far off from an A I was.

    Future Ambitions
    I want to be a doctor, possibly specialising in cardiology, and will be applying to Oxford, Imperial, Leicester, and Bristol this year.
    Hello, those are some great results! What exam board are you under for chemistry and biology?

    Pretty annoyed about physics .. I screwed up the first paper because my brain wasn't working during the exam and It was a tough paper.. But I did quite well on the second paper (so the grade went up significantly)
    It seems like I will have to drop physics..
    I think I'm one of the worst in my year because almost everyone I know got straight As..
    Future ambitions
    Would love to study medicine (at UCL or Imperial) but I don't have perfect grades

    Maths will b a bit harder since the grade carries over but just work hard next year. But chemistry is on the new spec so if you also work hard in that could definitely get an A ask your teachers to predict you AAA at least and you can still study medicine

    Feeling good with AABB. Particularly biology since im gonna drop it. Chemistry and Physics wont count but I know that it will be difficult next year. Im not sure in maths with 250 UMS score that i may get the A* if i do well in the C3 and C4 plus M1. I dunno if its worth having a remark. I achieved 98 in C1, 76 in C2 and 76 in S1. Im also willing to know how they can estimate your grades from these results.

    Genuine shock. I found this the hardest exam season of my life and didn't expect a single A grade, actually expected two U's but somehow I achieved so highly? Will be resitting my Core 1 exam in a hopes to aim higher (my C2 and M1 were a lot higher so brought my grade up) and hopefully have a shot at an A*!! Still cannot believe I did it

    Future Plans
    Applying for various unis to do Pharmacology or Biomedical Science. Very excited for the future now!!! Hoping to complete my EPQ by Christmas too

    I got what I wanted in chemistry and surpassed myself in biology, but I am surprised with my low grades in maths and physics. I was planning to drop biology, but since it has my second highest grade, I am now not too sure. I prefer the physical sciences to the life sciences, but I am wondering whether to drop physics, biology or carry on all 4 subjects onto A-level

    Is this combination doable at A-level? Should I risk doing 4 or 3 subjects?

    Future ambitions

    I would like to be a teacher
