    If you got all A*s in the exams and you got an A overall it may be worth enquiring about it as there may be an error.
    Not everyone does and try not to always be comparing your self to others, it isn't healthy. Lots of people dream of getting As, especially in Science, and as long as you're able to do what you want, try not to worry too much.

    My results were :
    English language : A ( really wanted an A*)
    English Literature: A (wasnt expecting this at all thought I'd get a C)
    Maths: A (expected)
    History: A ( worked so hard for this I went from G's to an A)
    Art: B ( really wanted an A)
    Spanish: C ( I can't speak a word of Spanish so a C is great)
    PE : C (I hate pe )
    Chemistry : B (wanted an A)
    Biology: B (expected)
    Physics :B (expected)


    Overall quite happy with my results bar English language and art. It's frustrating as for a couple of my results I'm one or two marks off the A* but as these subjects are subjective I don't want to risk them getting marked down. To be honest I have always said to myself that I can still do well without these results , I just had my own personal goals. Hope everyone got what they wanted. Well done

    I'm really confused about my overall I.C.T grade. The examiners (WJEC) must've been generous. I had an A* in my Year 10 coursework but a C in the Unit 1 written paper, yet I had an A overall? I really don't get how an A* and a C equivilate to an overall A? Obviously, I'm thrilled to have that A. I just don't feel like I deserved it because my exam was considerably lower than my coursework, if that makes any sense.

    Also, my Welsh examiners must've been coffee addicts as well as generous. There are four questions (including two crossover questions which are the same in both Higher and Foundation Tier). In the crossover writing question, I wrote 3 sentences about coffee (obviously in Welsh) and yet I had a B in the paper. How is my stupidness worth a B? All I can say is I'm thankful that I've had such generous grades.

    How do you all do further maths A level alongside GCSEs.
    Further maths GCSEs

    A^ means A* with distinction (for any who are confused)

    The A^ grade is stupid and it's basically just an A* anyway. The grade A* in GCSE further maths is basically an A, the C grade is basically a D because you only need 37/175 for the C grade. There's no point in the A^ grade.

    Further maths GCSE is basically in between GCSE and A Level (so I've been told) and so it's higher than an A*.

    Yeah but it really doesn't make sense. You can only get A* at A level not A***, I don't think grades should be created just because it's a little harder.

    It is scary though... i found out that i actually got a B in B1 and C1 (which is 1 mark off an a grade...) that is really terrible for me because i just need 4 marks to get an A* in biology... And considering it is the easiest of those exams, i could not believe i didn't even get an A. As well as chemistry... it was reaply dissapointing... i found C1 is the most easiest since it was the very basic staff... (so i thought i would have got at least 50 marks cuz i couldn't think what i had got wrong) but it turn out that i didn't even get an A... i am considering that if i need to apply some remarks... However, there is a much bigger issue for me in course work. Basically, three science teacher had mark my coursework for A* , 44/50 in chemistry, 46/50 in physics and biology. But it only turn out the right marks in biology for 75/80 UMS... And i got both 64/80 UMS for the other 2 (which is 39/50-just an A)... i pulled down my overall physics grade.. Don't know if others have a similar issue here.

    Did anyone else get rather bad in English Lit and Lang AQA board? My entire year group did horrible and they are remarking. I was expected to get 2 A*'s and got 2 B's.
    no? I got full UMS in both, so two A*s and most of the year got A* or A

    Yes! Loads of usually A* students got only A's! I was wondering about this ☹️
    That's what I'm wondering as well! I found the EdExcel papers I did for the sciences and based on the results I got I decided to do them again (baring in mind I forgot a lot of stuff since it's been over 2 months) and I got 55/60 (A*) in B1 but my paper says I got lower, I got at least 47/60 in B2 but my results sheet says I got much lower and got 51/60 at least (A*) but my results sheet says I got much lower! I feel like this has happened with other subjects so I'm checking!

    Is it worth a remark for all my papers guys because i'm very confident I did much better!

    Same with CIE. In extreme cases at my school people went from A* to a D. No one knows why.

    Exactly with me! I got A* in my CIE IGCSE english language mock exam but in the real thing I got a D? I at least expected a B!
