    Glad I could help!

    How do you think you fared?:yy:
    Spoiler:

    C4, FP2, FP3, M5 - I think 75/75 so full UMS

    S4 - I think 73-75 / 75, so hopefully 97 or upwards based on the boundaries.

    S3 - I think I counted 70/75, and 68/75 will be the A* boundary, so I think 93ish UMS, which I'm happy with.

    M4 - I counted 69/75, maybe 68. From the boundaries (59 for an A, 52 for a B) this means 66 is an A* (with 73 as full UMS), so I am looking at 93ish UMS again, which I'd be happy with. Assuming this M4 is correctly predicted and the first 4 are all 100, I'll beat the schools current UMS record...

    As am I :argh:

    Must be horrible not knowing your coursework mark. I know mine but it means very little without the UMS
    Makes me even more eager for results :teeth: I know from my results last year that I have got at least an E but that's it :lol:

    Same lol! Trying to remember the right spelling of quotes for Wife of Bath was so hard! We will have to wait and see - only a day and a half to go now!
    I made up so many critics opinions for that exam haha, hopefully they don't check whether those people are real or not!

    Thanks for the tip, I thought the test was too easy though :/ I got 48/50 for the multiple choice and 68/75 for the hazard perception part, I wish a-levels was just as easy lol
    OMG congratulations I knew you could do it! I initially thought I failed hazard perception, but was really surprised when I passed Just dreading tomorrow and the day after .. Don't worry, you'll be fine for your results, are you collecting AS or A2 results?

    Unfortunately not because they release the coursework boundaries alongside the June exam ones, I appreciate the effort though
