    I usually make a big announcement about this but for various reasons, can't this year. So I'll just make a post here - we've made some threads in the A-Level forum designed to help you guys in the run up to results (including the famous grade boundaries thread). Have a look at the sticky threads.

    Good luck *

    Awesome, that's really, really put my mind at ease. In both English and Film I now know I've already got at least 70 each towards the overall 320 UMS from the coursework modules. I was underestimating how big of an impact UMS and AS Levels had. Though I am still cautious, just not bricking myself as much as I was before.
    WJEC Film?

    Isn't it mandatory to get 90+ UMS in C3 and C4 for the A*?
    It's a 90+ UMS average, a 180+ UMS total.
    Meaning 100 in C3 and 80 in C4 will still get you the A*

    Nope, OCR, a course I haven't seen any discussion on here or elsewhere. The questions this year were great, one was based on something I had literally been practicing the day before and the other was based on something incredibly easy to write about. Got 95/100 in my Coursework as well so I don't really have any worries about it.

    I'm not going to get above a C It's really upsetting because I was 5UMS off a B last year and would have made the B if I'd talked about both sources in one of the questions which lost me 10 MARKS! I retook the exam but I know I didn't do as well. This year we had Mexican cinema which I struggled with massively and that's going to be the question that pulls my grade down.

    Anyone know when the WJEC grade boundaries will be released? I remember last year they were the first ones out, which was a surprise because they are usually the slowest apparently.

    Because we don't discriminate by colour :hand:

    True, thats a good way of looking at it.

    Law hopefully!!
    If you don't get it - reapply. It's better to wait a year than cry for the next 3/4 years lol (don't want to go to my insurance). I'll be reapplying to Oxford myself if I have missed my offer.

    Ah damn, that sucks. Sorry to hear it. In OCR our film question (the other question being about film context/history) was based around three foreign films of the teacher's choice, so we got a French (La Haine), Spanish (The Orphanage) and Korean (Oldboy) film to study. Only looking at Mexican cinema sounds like it could be very limiting, so I can imagine how hard it might be.

    Ummm generally people are expected to have made a back up plan already by results day about where they plan on going to and then have 9-5 hours to call around and get offers and then decide where they want to go. So you should be making the important decisions now really.
    Yes I know, and I do but I'm just saying that the day is going to be stressful enough as it is I think having a day to calm down a bit would help

    Right

    time for some distractions - it's the annual parallel universe clearing options challenge....
    *fanfare*
    *cheerleaders* :party:
    *whooping*

    Step 1: go to http://search.ucas.com/
    Step 2: search for a common degree subject (english, business, psychology)
    Step 3: from the results pick a university that you didn't consider when first applying
    Step 4: clear your last search and search again for ALL clearing courses available at that new university
    Step 5: find a course they offer that is COMPLETELY different to what you applied for that sounds like it would be really interesting to study
    Step 6: SHARE

    So on my first run I found http://www.worcester.ac.uk/ and I'm torn between Archaeology and Heritage Studies and Business Psychology. They both look really interesting and I could see either leading to a very different career to the one I'm in but doing something incredibly interesting.

    Second run I shortlisted https://www.lincoln.ac.uk/home/ and either Animal Behaviour and Welfare or Product Design - a bit more science based than the Worcester choices but who doesn't want to better understand the mysteries of animals or make amazing cool things on 3D printers?
