    • English Language: Predicted C / Achieved A
    • English Literature: Predicted B / Achieved B
    • History: Predicted B / Achieved B
    • Sociology: Predicted A/ Achieved B
    Comments and reactions
    I was really surprised with my results as I was certain that I had failed History. So overall I am really pleased, however I know that I could have gotten better in Sociology and History! I was slightly disappointed in English Literature due to the fact I was 1 mark of an A, but sadly my courses are linear so a remark would seem pointless.

    Future ambitions

    Hopefully get my grades up to AAA/AAB for next year. I am wanting to study History or English Literature but I'm really unsure. Any help on this decision would be appreciated. I also want to get an A in my EPQ (if anyone else is doing this with AQA let me know)!

    Wait Maths has 3 units. How are the other 8 units shared between the sciences.

    Oh right calm. I already know how the Maths AS is structured. You said you did 11 units across your 4 subjects. How were the 8 units structured in Biology , Chemistry and Physics?

    I don't get what you ask for
    1.Bio Unit 1
    2.Bio Unit 2
    3.Bio Unit 3

    4.Chem Unit 1

    I think it's an international thing (IAL?). I thought when you wrote C12 that you ment C1, C2 hence maths would have consisted of 3 units . Makes sense now. Well done for smashing the a grades in the 11 units!!

    I had a nightmare that I misread a B as an A and thought I'd got AAAA when really I'd got AAAB. Then I woke up and checked and it was still AAAA. Scary.
    I feel your pain.

    But everything you learn in AS is relevant to the A level course as a whole??
    Yes it is relevant; but if you take English Literature for example, the text list is different, meaning for what is meant to be the equivalent unit, you need to study more texts for the A Level in addition to the AS. The exam format is also changed. But fundamentally, you will end up with an A Level and an AS Level in each of the subjects under the new system: essentially one and a half A Levels. So if you take each one separately, in an example where you'd done AS level English Literature, psychology and sociology; you would have the following qualifications if you continued them all through next year:
    AS level English Literature,
    AS level psychology,
    AS level sociology,
    A level English Literature,
    A level psychology,
    A level sociology
    That's 6 qualifications in 3 subjects over a two year period.

    Yes it's two years work idk where 3 comes from. It's just we have to try and remember last year's work as well as this years
    The A Level and the AS are separate qualifications. The AS level is a one year course. The A Level is a two year course. 1+2=3.
    (Original post by elegantelephant)
    Hey, I clicked 'add qualifications' on the Education section and selected 'GCE Advanced Subsidiary' - I added Sociology but History also appears on this list. I've listed my AS Sociology as a separate qualification from A-level Sociology for now (just put the grade as 'pending' on A-level). Hope this makes sense and sorry if it's not what you asked!
    They are separate (decoupled) qualifications so this is all you can do.
    (Original post by EmilyJ1215)
    Does anyone on her who has done one of the reformed A Levels have any idea as to how we enter the AS grade on UCAS given the qualification name doesn't appear? There is no option for my history course at AS (only A2) so I don't know where to enter my grade...
    They will need to be entered separately because they are separate (decoupled) qualifications.
    (Original post by brxvebird)
    Tad disappointed with Literature but I have to redo the exams anyway because they're post reform so it doesn't matter too much.
    You don't the exam is different (same name, slightly different content); you may need to learn new stuff.

    Chill Everyone, well almost everyone, will get a few bad grades at some point -
    this is my first time too, I got ACC. Take it as a learning curve and make it make you motivated to smash A2. You can easily make up for it, evaluate where you went
    wrong, work hard and do not give up!
