    The maps one didn't go so well.

    The one about population change and tourism was good.

    Ahhh AQA Geography, it's a decent course. I did it in Year 9 and 10. Got an A in population, tourism and urban environments then an A* in ecosystems, tectonic activity and rivers with an A in my rivers coursework. Got an A overall in it

    Ahhhh so nervous! Just wondering if anyone knew how much UMS 37/50 would be in an ISA for AQA Core Science? 41+/50 was 100 UMS. Dunno what I got though.

    What kind of evil mum do you have? Why would she tell you that she dreamed you did bad? If my mum had a dream like this, i'd prefer she kept it to herself! Haha
    Haha, she probably told me it to annoy me

    I feel like everyone expects me to do well whenever I say 'I'm so scared' and they say 'oh you always do well' or 'you'll be fine' but some of my exams were horrible e.g listening french (aqa - absolutely horrific), english lit, humanities etc.
    like there's so much pressure even my mum was asking why I'm worrying cause I'll do well
    And if I don't (which is likely for some subjects) I'll feel like I've not only let myself down but people will be disappointed in me

    first time they've been sat so I wouldn't expect them to be too harsh
    I am not too sure about this hypothesis because AQA seemed to mark the June 12 Unit 1 papers more slackly than the January 2012 Unit 1 papers.For example 1% of people got an A* in B1 in January but 10% got an A* in B1 in June, which seems fishy and the BBC did an article on it-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-19599279.So I would expect the marking to be harsher because its the first sitting.

    A few days ago I was thinking about how bad it would be if it was raining on results day and the water got through the envelope and paper and the water had smudged the ink in such a way that you could tell whether a grade was an A or an A*, after waiting so long I'm starting to get nervous about whether I'll actually get to receive my results this is getting ridiculous now.
