    I got my AS grades yesterday. In Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry I achieved AACD respectively. In general I am happy with my maths grades however I am stunned by the UMS/raw marks I got for S1 and D1. I respectively got 76 UMS/57 and 72 UMS/57 . Is it worth resitting these two modules next year? I want (have) to achieve A*s in Maths and Further Maths!

    The grades are based on the UMS marks, so if you average at over 80 for AS and over 90 for A2 then you will achieve an A*. If you average at 80-90 in both years it is an A etc. So if you wanted an A* you would have to average at 90+ UMS for your C3 and C4 modules and I think the same would apply for mechanics. Which is completely possible as I sat M1 this year (thought it wasn't too bad but I worked my ass off) and managed (somehow) to get 93 UMS. So with what you have it is possible to achieve an A* without resitting

    So if I achieved say 86 in C3 90 in C4 but 94 in M1 is that an A because of the C3 and C4 average?

    You have to get 90% over your best 3 A2 modules.
    If you post the modules you are doing I can give some examples if you like.

    Chemistry - E

    I'm very disappointed with my results in biology and chemistry even though I really knew it was coming tbh. I suppose I have to do chemistry next year but I really didn't want to. I need to get ABB at least next year. Will it be possible considering I got an E at AS chemistry?

    I'm....really really really disappointed. B in my best subject, the one i want to do at uni, and a C in the subject I wanted to keep! Sociology is great, not surprised because i thought the exams went amazingly. But I got an A in Biology which is SUCH a shock - i only dropped 5 marks across both breadth and depth!!! HOW??? Anyway, now i don't know whether to drop Bio (what i was gonna drop originally) or history, ahhh

    Future ambitions
    English Literature and Creative Writing at Warwick Uni is my number 1 goal!
    Is sociology AQA? If it is, how many points did you get as I got a B and I am trying to work out how many points away from an A I was

    Comments and reactionsAm overall pleased with results, I was expecting the grade I got for chemistry big time as I really struggled with this subject even though I really enjoyed it. Am very surprised about Dutch too as I thought I did much better than that, so am sending it for a remark since I'm only 2 marks of a B Future ambitions Quite like to study at either Sheffield or Durham, international Business is where it at!

    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!!!

    • Maths: Predicted ? / Achieved A (300/300 UMS)
    • Further Maths: Predicted ? / Achieved A (271/300 UMS)

    I didnt do any more AS, but my internal exams were good (AAB with Predictions A*AA). My maths predicteds were predicated on my AS results, so I presume A*A*, but no guarantee.

    Very happy, did as well I hoped. Cambridge pipe-dream is still go, even with my below average GCSEs

    Comments and reactionsso annoyed, disappointed and upsetFuture ambitionswas planning on going to year 13 then uni to study business. now I'm not sure what to do. i can stay in year 13 and cary on with my ICT and maths linear subjects then carry on business and try super hard then drop physics and pick up an AS out of little selection (probably product design). which means after year 13 i'll only have 2 A levels and 2 AS levels which will be hard to make it into uni.

    my parents are trying to persuade me to just ditch year 13 as they think its not worth it and that id be better off going to college or doing an apprenticeship.

    i really really wanna go to 6th form.

    what should i do?!?

    Results:

    Politics- predicted A, received A
    R.S.- predicted A, received A
    French- predicted A, received B

    History is linear but predicted A*/A for A2

    Dropping politics for A2

    Reaction:

    I'm really pleased with my results other than French. The french marks were down for the whole group, and the teachers are very confused so probably going to get a remark (only 5 marks off an A).

    Future ambitions:

    Theology at Cambridge, and yes I am still going to apply with a B as I got a high UMS average for RS and an A* in my RS based EPQ. Other than that, Durham, St Andrews, Bristol, maybe Aberdeen or Nottingham.

    Overall I'm pleased especially no doubt with Politics and considering that I revised but not wholeheartedly for each exam. Feel that I have to brush up with Eco in the coming months and try and turn things around in order to maximise my performance when it comes to A2 exams next year.
