    Politics-predicted B/achieved A
    Economics-predicted C/ achieved D
    History-predicted C/achieved B

    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.

    100 a* 98 a*

    Screw you, General. Of all the things I could've got an A* in, it had to be the one that I didn't revise and wrote 'I have no idea what you're talking about' for one of the essay questions. God's sake, there are karmic forces punishing me. My firm has rejected me anyway.

    • 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

    Future ambitions
    Engineering at Cambridge.
    Hey! Join the 300/300 Maths club
    I'm applying to Cambridge too, but for Economics. How did you find M2 this year? Thought it was reasonably hard (this is Edexcel btw).

    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.
    How were you able to achieve these amazing result?

    We'll if your cores average at 90+ you'll be fine and then you can fluctuate for M1
    Because it's cumulative do you need a set score out of the 6 modules or does it have to rely on you getting 90+ on the cores even if you reach that set score.

    So far the only people in this thread I've seen get straight A's have been the ones who've done Maths/Science. Anyone done humanities and got straight A's?
    I did! I didn't do a single science, I did 2 Englishes, History and Classics and got high As in all of them

    Hi guys, I have a question I'm hoping someone will be able to answer.

    I took a mixture of reformed and non-reformed A-Levels but sat AS exams for all of them this year. On UCAS, I know I declare the non-reformed ones as their own AS as well as part of the A2, but am I meant to add the new AS? Is that even a qualification, as it doesn't count towards A2 and I'm taking it on?

    I'm also required to put module grades down, but with my reformed English Lit. grade I didn't receive individual module grades, but with History I did!?

    Thank you and hope that makes sense!

    I am happy that I have at least passed my exams. But I can't help but feel disappointed with psychology I really wanted an A as i revised so hard for it. Business I would of liked a B in but i'm aware where i went wrong which is the first paper, and english I'm shocked tbh i honestly felt as if i did so bad.
    Future ambitions
    I'm hoping to study Psychology and Economics at either Exeter, Glasgow, Sussex (Edinburgh would of been on the list but they have the requirement of doing A-Level Maths.

    So, A level maths, does anyone know how many UMS marks are needed altogether in AS and A2 to get an A*? I got 256 UMS marks in AS and want to know what I have to get next year in A2 to achieve an A*.

    I'm assuming you're talking about Edexcel? For them you need 480/600 UMS overall to get an A, then on top of that you have to average 90 UMS on C3 and C4 to get an A*. This means that you can get an A* with only 480 UMS if you do well enough on C3 and C4, alternatively you could get like 550/600 and still only get an A. Hope this helps.

    I am absolutely ecstatic with my results, I didn't think that History or English Language went well at all and was convinced I was going to get D's in both of them! My hopeful predictions after exams were BBCC and I even wrote a letter to myself apologising for my results! I am absolutely blown away, but also incredibly proud of myself and motivated to do better next year! (I dropped Theatre btw if anyone was interested.)

    I think that's right yeah, which is quite funny because this means if I get 90 average in C3 and 4, then I could just not turn up to my 6th paper, get 0, but still get an A* haha. The system seems a bit broken but I'll take it

    I did D1 this year and got 100 UMS. The thing with D1 is that you learn algorithms, which never change, practice them over and over until they become second nature, then do the same on the real paper, and boom full UMS. Genuinely the best piece of advice I could give is to prepare for it properly even when it becomes boring and/or easy.

    What are the "Module Marks"?

    My daughter has just had her AS results (still count 50% of her A Levels in Wales) and we were expecting to see "raw score" or "UMS" but it only has "Module Mark" I.e.

    Government and Politics: Grade A (Module Mark 190 / 200 across the two papers, 98 + 92)

    Geography: Grade A (Module Mark 177 / 200 ditto, 92 + 85)

    Law: Grade A (Module Mark 166 / 200 ditto, 94 + 72)

    (Predicted 3 A's)

    She can see she's got 3 A's, which is good, but she wants to know how good!?

    She's thinking of resisting the 72 in Law 1 as this was normally her best subject.
    I'm a mummy too! 16 year old son got 5 x A grade at AS - Spanish, French Marine Science, Biology and Chemistry. We live in Spain so he took A2 Spanish a year early A*.
    Apart from Marine Science they were all Edexcel. I can see the UMS e.g. Chemistry 240 UMS = A grade - my son got 281 UMS. However, I can't see the breakdown of the results per unit.
