    I got 8a*s, 2as and 2bs (maybe 1b, I'm getting a remark). Do you think this is good enough for Cambridge or will the bs bring me down?

    Do you think I should get remarks in these subjects for A*, A* = 360ums / 180 ums

    Biology = 358/360
    Physics = 353/360
    History = 177/180
    Pe 174/180

    Unfortunately no my school is the only one in the area which offers computing which is the subject that is clashing.
    You could self teach the course and then just ask your school to enter you for the exams.
    Unless it's predominantly coursework. idk, never did computing.

    Maybe for History, but I'd leave the others tbh because of the nature of those subjects*

    Points don't really mean anything - they just correspond to a grade. 46 points will always be an B matter how close you were to the next boundary.*

    (If you're interested, 58 points = A*, 52 points = A, 46 points = B etc.)

    ask your head examiner to retrieve your breakdown.

    So here's what I got...
    Spoiler:
    Show
    AQA:
    Geography: A* (had been getting in the 90% for raw mark so under performed a bit here but still got the mark)

    OCR:
    FSMQ Additional Mathematics: A (highest grade - cannot get an A*)

    Edexcel GCSE:
    History: A* (messed up the international relations and Germany paper but still managed to get the A* )
    Italian: A* (100% UMS so not bad really )

    Edexcel iGCSE:
    Biology: A* (expected)
    Chemistry: A* (expected)
    Economics: A* (expected)
    English Language: A* (somehow)
    English Literature: A (happy with this, been getting B's and C's all year)
    French: A (had been hoping to get an A* but had been working at an A all year so cannot really complain)
    Physics: A* (expected)
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Last Year:

    Edexcel iGCSE:
    Maths: A* (95% overall mark [190/200])

    So overall if you count the FSMQ Add Maths A as an A* as there is none then..
    I have achieved 10 A*s and 2 A's. No complaints from me

    So I got 2As, 4Bs, 3Cs:

    A's:
    -German
    -English Lit

    B's:
    -Physics
    -English Lang.
    -Geography
    -Business

    C's:
    -Maths
    -Chemistry
    -Biology

    For A-level Psychology I needed a B in a science, B in maths, and A*-C in another academic subject. Do you think I could still get in? Otherwise that's only 2 AS levels and I don't know what to do for my other ones! I wanted to do A-level German but the college I want to go to isn't going ahead with that course since there isn't enough people wanting to do it. The other subjects I'm going to do is Geography and Business.

    Please help!
