    Isn't it mandatory to get 90+ UMS in C3 and C4 for the A*?
    I'm not sure lol cos I don't take maths that's why I couldn't answer that myself. But the other guys here seem to have the right info.

    Anyone remember when OCR released their grade boundaries last year? I remember staying up to see Edexcel and OCR and can't recall whether OCR also released them around midnight.

    If you get rejected from your firm & insurance uni and you go into clearing, can you apply to your firm uni again through clearing? Providing they have spaces ofc
    You can phone them

    They'll probably tell you no - they'll already have considered your application and decided that they can't accept you with lower grades (otherwise Track wouldn't say you were rejected) so unless you're going for a very different course then you're going to be wasting time on the phone you could be using to contact somewhere that does wont you.

    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?

    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.
