    Is sociology AQA? If it is, how many points did you get as I got a B and I am trying to work out how many points away from an A I was
    No, my board was OCR, sorry!

    The unit will contain most of the same stuff. Edexcel is the more popular exam board for Maths that's all.

    • Maths (Edexcel): Predicted A / Achieved C (33 UMS in D1 so retaking - Just need 72 UMS for A (201 right now)
    • Physics (OCR A): Predicted E >/ Achieved B (Best grade I got)
    • Computer Science (OCR): Predicted B / Achieved B
    • Electronics (A2, OCR): Predicted B / Achieved B (459UMS, Thinking of retaking F613 and F614)
    Comments and reactions
    I didn't finish all questions in D1, so this is probably why. I wanted AABB minimum (as this would allow me to apply for unis like Loughborough and Surrey quite comfortably.) However, since my predictions probably won't be more than BBBB, I am at a wall right now (In terms of the unis I can apply to.)
    Also, my parents are gonna be scrutinising my every movements from this day forward (especially on the computer + phone since I'm a known procrastinator and my mum thinks I spend too much time on YouTube), since I'm a failiure in their eyes, even though I know I'm not, but they will beat me down and I fear this will make it harder to learn, as they fill my mind with fixed, garbage thoughts that I don't want or need right now.
    Future ambitions
    I would like to apply for Electronic engineering, but the C in maths (which is trivial to improve) will seriously hurt my uni chances. I may have to reapply in a gap year when my grades improve, but I don't know what to do on UCAS. *sigh*

    You cannot obtain an A* at AS level. So you are either lying, or you haven't realised that this thread is for AS.

    A reminder that this is an AS thread so your electronics doesn't count here. I know a lot of people had that problem with D1 (I started at the back).

    Yeah, I started from the algorithm question, and then went to the critical path analysis one, and only had 10 mins to do the rest, so I messed up pretty badly.

    AS electronics got a B last year, so I'm thinking of retaking the coursework (got 53/80 UMS I believe.)

    I was very unhappy with the UMS marks I got in Maths :c89 for c1, I blame the migraine I had at the begging of the exam as I could have gotten 100.91 for c2, I don't know why but I became extremely anxious about half way through and rushed which lead to misreading 2 questions completely.
    89 for M1, I got all of the final answers correct so my working was not up to standard.
    I did worse in the real exam than literally every single one of my practice papers.

    I was very happy for sociology as I didn't go to any lessons for the past 3 months as I dropped it.

    I wasn't entered for AS exams in History or English (my two strongest) absolutely ecstatic with my results, I'm dropping politics but was a complete miracle to pass as there has been many teaching issues with it this year

    I know I'm a bit late but this is how I did

    Results:
    Edexcel Maths: A (C1:100 C2:97 S1:89)
    Edexcel Further Maths: A (FP1:99 S2:98 D1:84)
    Edexcel Economics: A (122 overall)
    AQA Physics: A (Dunno marks new spec)

    Comments
    Quite surprised really cos I was preparing for AABB. Wish D1 UMS was slightly higher but definitely not retaking (I hated D1 lol). Very happy with S2 UMS because it means I only have to average 90 UMS in 2 Further Maths modules next year to get an A*
