    A bit shocked about C3 didn't think it would go thaat low, was hoping M2 would be a little lower but ah well, the rest indifferent really, same old .
    Low grade boundaries are always a plus!
    Maybe people did better in M2 than what they thought

    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...

    :teeth: So what will that make you M+FM total?

    I'm on 790/800 so far, with 5 modules to come. I suspect they aren't all 100s although there was only 1 question where I realised I had definitely messed up.


    Unfortunately the school record at my school is 1299/1300 and (even more annoyingly) was set by my brother.

    I hope you reach your offer, fingers crossed for Thursday. That is a really minimal difference I really hope that even if you didn't get a high A in FP2 that Warwick would strongly consider confirming you.

    I really underestimated myself, I am very ecstatic about these boundaries.

    Original predictions pre grade boundaries.
    M1-90
    S1-82
    S2-97
    FP1-96
    C2-100

    New predictions after grade boundaries
    M1-93
    S1-84
    S2-96
    FP1-97 or 98
    C2-100

    so I've definitely gained some ums in return of 1 ums lost for S2 (I think)

    Well done, they're really good results! And you've probably done better than me in S2 and we'll be joint in C2 .

    Are you still planing on applying to Cambridge?

    About 8 am according to the UCAS website, could be up to an hour before though. Tell your family it's 12
    Ahhh it's Miss J!
    Didn't realise it was you until I replied - ah, I heard from my head of Sixth form that it was 12 in the morning o.O I guess Results are out before UCAS then, which is even more unexpectedly tense :eek:

    M1 is 56 for an A holy crap now I now I've definitely got that. And 58 for FP1 that's the lowest I've seen. I feel so relieved now. The only thing I'm worried about is D1 a high 65 for 80.

    Ok, In theory, AQA and OCR come out at midnight tonight, but OCR often come a little earlier at about 10 or 11. Edexcel are either coming out at midnight tonight or midnight tomorrow. Sorry for those wih WJEC, youll be waiting until you get your results at 6am on Thursday morning.

    Unfortunately the school record at my school is 1299/1300 and (even more annoyingly) was set by my brother.
    The school record is 1182/1200 across Maths/Further Maths. If I get 100% in C4, FP2, FP3 and M5, and at least 92 in M4, then I can place all C, FP, and M modules into Maths/Further Maths in order to get at least 1183/1200 across my top 12. No-one else has done more than 12 so I automatically win on that front; I'm hoping to get no less than 1750/1800. At the minute I've lost 28 UMS across 11 exams, I'm expecting to lose about 15 across M4 and S3 and then no more than 3 on S4 if any, which would meet that goal. If you want the specific scores so far then they're in a spoiler.

    C1 - 99
    C2 - 100
    C3 - 100
    M1 - 100
    M2 - 92
    M3 - 100
    FP1 - 100
    S1 - 95
    S2 - 96
    D1 - 96
    D2 - 94
