    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
    Same damn hopefully i can get that in D1 has anybody done D1 if so what do you guys think of it and any tips

    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.

    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 (this is Edexcel btw).
    I did m1, s1 and d1, on OCR, so I can't comment at all about how M2 was

    WELL DONE ON YOUR AMAZING RESULTS EVERYONE!
    Here are my results
    -FRENCH: Predicted by teachers: A / Predicted by me: A / Actual result: A (I got 100%! So happy!)
    -SPANISH: Predicted by teachers: A / Predicted by me: B / Actual result: A
    -GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS: Predicted by teachers: B / Predicted by me: C / Actual result: A !! (I got 98% in this which really surprised me!)

    I'm so happy, I've had a really tricky year so AAA was such an achievement! I'm dropping politics next year so I will be doing French, Spanish and Psychology (it's linear so all exams are next year!)
    damn are you french? lol

    D1 is not very Mathsy. There are 4 mark questions for putting a list of numbers into an order. The hardest bit is graphical inequalities with a silly level of contextual depth. The boundaries are usually very high though.

    So happy! We weren't given any predictions at my college so those are just what I thought I'd get. Surprised I did better in GOVP2 than GOVP1 considering I found the former far, far more difficult...

    Future ambitions
    I really don't know... I keep changing my mind on university courses; I'm really struggling to find one I enjoy. I've done lots of research but nothing's really grabbing me.

    I am in year 12 but I learnt and sat all the maths exams for the full A2 - which is how I got the A*! The statistics however is an AS
    Therefore, in this thread your results are as follows:

    Ahahahahahha, literally no clue.

    First off I want to get into Cambridge to do Linguistics, and then maybe do a masters and PhD or something in a more specific area? Or, after getting my BA, I'll find a job which has a semi-decent pay and try and work my way up in that? Or I might do a transfer from Linguistics to Psychology or Law or something like that?

    TLDR I have no frickin clue

    Firstly, congratulationsssss. May I ask, how you revised??? I need as much advise as I can get.
    My revision method is tailored towards me and works best for me so I wouldn't recommend it for others. If I'm revising the content then I literally re-read and memorise things. If i have plenty of time ill make a few revision cards. Once I've learned all the content I do all the papers while constantly reviewing my notes and the textbook notes.

    Definitely do all the past papers available to you!

    That awkward moment when you say the grade boundaries are 'very high' yet 100 UMS in D1 edexcel this year was 63/75 haha
