    Can someone please explain the Resistant Materials Grade Boundaries to me I'm a little confused. In my coursework I got 216 = A* and in my exam I got 134 = A but on the grade boundaries it says that the max mark for the coursework is 90 and you need 84 for an A* and the max for the exam is 120 and you need 96 for an A*. I'm looking to get it remarked but don't know how far away I am. Thanks in advance <3 xx

    Those higher grade marks are UMS
    The lower are the actual raw paper mark.
    The raw mark is scaled to a UMS mark

    Chemistry: B (Pretty happy with this.)
    Physics: B (I don't mind with this either; science has never been my strong point.)

    Hey I'm looking to apply to medicine at Cambridge and I got my results today.

    I got 8A* 4As. I have a diverse range of extracurriculurs but I was wondering whether these results would at least give me a shot at medicine at Cambridge?

    Cheers

    In my results I got:
    English Language:B
    English Literature: B
    Religious Studies: B
    Maths: C
    Graphic Products: B
    Drama: C
    Science: B
    Media: B
    History: A

    I'm honestly so happy with my results I was predicted all Cs except in Re and English. I'm only really disappointed with those two grades as I was only about one UMS marks off an A for both of those subjects, (I'm considering getting them remarked,) other than that I'm really happy.
    Also I was getting Ds in History and I have somehow managed to get an A overall??

    Can you not just go somewhere where it won't clash?
    Unfortunately no my school is the only one in the area which offers computing which is the subject that is clashing.

    Guys is it worth a remark? Because I came out the exam so confident! And also based on the unofficial mark schemes for maths I shouldve gotten a higher mark I got 2A* 6As 1B and a C.
    I want to remark some of my units because they seem really wrong

    These results are fine for Medicine at Cambridge, but your AS-Level results will be a lot more important
