    Haha...
    Wait, why's that?
    Because that AS has no bearing on your A Level. The AS is a one year course, the A Level is a two year course, that's three years crammed into two. You're not supposed to be doing that, but a lot of schools and colleges are doing it and I don't think it is fair.

    Comments and reactions
    Very enjoyable when your economics teacher says you're working at a C+ and then you get 92% 😂. History was one mark off a C so no surprise, law was a nice 90% and politics was an A and a C in the two papers so I'll be resitting the latter.

    Future ambitions
    Plan to take Politics at University, Warwick, Bath and Edinburgh are the targets, going for AAA at least next year 😊

    Results:
    Maths = A Core 1 = 92/100, Core 2 = 85/100, D1 =50/100
    Further Maths = C Fp1 = 61/100, M1 = 85/100, D2 = 71/100 Fp1 was very disheartening during the exam, awful timing.
    Physics = C

    In actuality I got a B in further maths, but because I came in with a low blow in D1 they swapped it with M1, giving me the best maths grade and
    worst in further maths. Physics I was the only person in the entire year to get an A in the mock, I definitely slacked a bit after that and then the
    new spec paper 2 destroyed me and I thought I would get a D or below. Saying that though, I filled an entire classroom with notes of perfect
    memory the morning before the exam, 8 large whiteboards of everything due to come up in paper 2 and teachers came in taking photos etc
    saying i should be confident. I guess paper 2 was more about understanding rather than knowledge. Disheartened at first as I am capable of 3A's, but its a learning curve and at the end of the day, I just need to resit 2 modules. D1 was complete lack of work - I will smash it this year roundand I know I need to be more confident. I'm very determined right now, so lets go kill A2

    • Geography Predicted B/ Achieved C
    Comments and reactionsOverall, I'm satisfied with these results. At first I was disappointed with the maths since it was 5 ums from an A, the C was a shock as well because I thought I had secured a B.
    Future ambitions
    I want to study economics at Birmingham although I am slightly worried that my B in maths will hold me back. Although I received a high B my school would count it as generous to predict me a B,meaning that my choice in uni's is narrowed.

    Manchester is apparently really good. Really hoping to push for 3 A*s next year, but not sure if I'd even be considered for Oxbridge atm

    There aren't any raw marks on my results for English Literature (I'm on OCR and it's the new A Level course). I'm confused cause I got a B but I got 120 UMS points which is apparently the highest number you can get? Unless I'm just looking at this all wrong :/

    St Andrews is really good for Physics, ranked number 1 on the Guardian league tables (doesn't really mean much but shows it has good student satisfaction and stuff). Offer is 'only' 3 A's but it has an offer rate of ~33% compared to Manchester and Birmingham's ~80%.

    Those aren't your raw marks, they're the UCAS points you get for a B grade- an A is worth 135.
