    And where can o find them, do you know? Sorry for the questions! Haven't had internet for 3 days so catching up on stuff!
    Depends on the Exam Board I guess. For example, AQA will have it on their website around 8AM (hopefully). Tbh, you can probably just come here and find it filled with links to all the Grade Boundaries hahaha.

    Seeing the links have been taken down from the first post. By who were you informed?
    Captain Jack has informed me that due to copyright reasons, links to papers and mark schemes cannot be posted.

    If i had a quid for every time someone asked when the grade boundaries are released i would be able to pay off my student debt
    If I had a mark for every time someone said that, I would've finally got an A.

    Oh right, sorry to hear that. Yeah I'm just waiting for A2 results now, I had to resit the architecture paper this year because I failed it last year, it went much better this year though. My A2 exams seemed to go ok too, so I'm hoping I managed to get a B. Good luck to you anyway.
    Ah see I got a D in it last year but my women in Athens and Rome paper was.. bad ahaha because of the problems. What grades do you need for uni if you're going?and thanks but my grades are going to be even worse this year but thanks anyway

    Hi, a question - if you miss your offer by a grade, should you phone the university admissions team for your firm or the university's course admission to ask if you can still be accepted.

    Also, do you recommend calling univeristies with courses which match your grades on results day and asking for a place, or do they have to be listed on clearing for you to get a place?
    You should get in without calling if you missed it by 1 grade.

    I am so confused - when i checked the UCAS website it said that MORSE and Data science was in clearing. However when I checked the warwick website it said otherwise. So which is correct?

    You never know, you might have done better than you think. I need BBC, so not as daunting as some of the grades people need on here haha.

    STEP - An admissions test used by the "best" universities for maths to test the "best" maths students. Descending order of grades: S,1,2,3 etc

    UCAS - An online system in which year 13 students make their first university applications. You get 5 choices of subjects/universities to supply to (apart from people applying to medical schools they only get 3 choices)

    Clearing - A tool used on UCAS for people who don't meet their grades/not accepted by either their firm or insurance. Very busy on Results Day.

    Did you finish AS?
    Yes I will get my AS result this year but I think all these systems are used in UK as for us we go to the university to apply and we can apply to as many unis as we want and then if we are accepted into a bunch of them we can choose one and we use SAT tests for a better chance of admission

    Yes, I believe so. Links to papers can only go via the exam board's websites themselves and of course this won't be possible for a while.

    ****ing *******s. It's never been a problem in the past so why start enforcing it now?

    Good job I saved the full set of AQA papers to my computer. Shame we likely won't be seeing the mark schemes or examiners' reports this year.

    Wow that's cool! I'm guessing you are a prospective student from the US? You do AS and A2 (A Levels) in the US ?😱
