    Ugh I need AAB but I really think I got AAC and I know Russell group unis aren't particularly lenient on missed grades...
    What do you think you got the C in? Because I'd wait for the Grade Boundaries before coming to conclusions.

    Hi guys for those who did as maths I was going through some family issues and it's unfortunate cause I'm a student who works hard and I was predicted high anyway
    C1 - expect lowest lowestttt 66-67
    C2- 73
    M1 - 58 ( really bad day, my morning involved yelling and soothing crying from family ) - it could be much higher depending on the examiner since my mistakes were like making my coefficient of friction negative, copying the mass of one of the masses on the pulley wrong things like that. Hope they go easy on the minusing. Absolutely petrified. It's all I can think about

    Do you think I'd manage the A for as maths sigh

    Last year it came out in the morning, and the year before around 1am. Was just hoping ocr would be nice and tell us this time :unimpressed:

    Do you know how to work out the A* boundary? Or will OCR update heir ums converter on their website with this year's grade boundaries?

    Only AQA have told us. But you'll know when they come out.

    A* boundry is the difference of A&B added to A or half way between A and full marks whichever is lower

    Lol with those marks thats a definite yes, I did AS maths too (edexcel) and your c1 will probs be around 85 UMS and your C2 close to 100 which will definitely bring up your M1 which still at lowest is around 76 UMS, which overall would give you a pretty solid/high A

    AQA Philosophy. The questions were pretty decent even if it was the first year for this spec, still doesn't mean the grade boundaries won't be high. Last year the boundaries were low but the points were so close to each other, so a lot of people achieved lower grades.

    They have grade boundaries released that are specifically for A2. So it has what you need to get in a module for 90% aka an A*.

    For instance this is the 2015 one:

    Every day I'm just dropping my expectation on the m1 exam honestly so frustrated my family drama had to occur during my exam mornings. I just hope the m1 boundary isn't too high cause I found it easy I just copied values wrong and took direction wrong so I hope it doesn't go below 57

    Thank you for giving some mental relief

    I was really casual about my GCSE results day, now I'm *****ing myself for A level results day to a point that I might just have an aneurysm.

    Probably because you can't get an A* in individual modules
