    I wouldn't worry about Markets in Action, I remember doing it last summer and the paper was probably easier than this summer's, but it was 43/60 for an A. 51 for full UMS. I wouldn't be surprised if it is similar! Best of luck!
    Our teacher consistently practised the 18 marker on taxes/subsidies and externalities. When that didn't come up, it felt really bad. I think I'll have done ok, just not knowing is killing me. It could have gone either way for me- so we'll soon see. Best of luck to you as well!

    Yeah...I don't think I've done that bad in an exam since yr 9...
    and I got a couple of Ds that year :/
    Just thought I'd poke my head into this conversation to sadly nod my head and say "Yes, I too was brutally attacked by that C4 paper..."
    The scars from that exam still sting,,,

    Edexcel grade boundaries are supposed to come out at midnight today, although the january session I believe they were released at 2-3am roughly

    Thanks I hope the grade boundaries give me some idea about what kind of results to expect.

    By the morning, they'll all be OUT.
    To be entirely specific:
    OCR and EdExcel release theirs at 00:00;
    AQA release theirs in the morning and;
    WJEC is on Thursday morning...

    Parents expecting me to do well.. scared im going to let them down
    Don't worry you tried your best and i'm sure they know that too. For me it's my teachers that I don't want to let down, and the scary thing is, is that when I walk in to pick up the grades they will probably already know them. Good Luck

    I've been holding back from buying any of my A2 course text books and revision guides until I get my AS results and decide which subject I'm dropping. Then after Thursday I'm going to take a few days to either celebrate or commiserate about results, then spend a few days revising my University choices (changing them according to my results), then I need to re-draft my personal statement (haven't worked on that in a few weeks) and finally start some preparations for A2.
