    Indulge me for a minute - I'm a confused parent! Why is it so important to find out grade boundaries when you don't know what marks you got in your exams?
    Also, if it is a science or maths exam, it can give you a pretty good indication of what grade you got if you remember the paper well.

    C3 surprised me as well as C4 and M1 however I was hoping FP2 and M2 to just be a little lower, I'll miss my second A* by 2 marks it seems
    Yh C3 was the biggest surprise, as well as M1 and FP1. M1 was only slightly harder than normal and FP1 was standard apart from a 2 marker. I was hoping full UMS to be 70 in M2 but ah well, 2 marks or UMS?

    I don't think this is relevant to us considering it refers to Tony Blair as being the PM
    oh **** yeah you're right

    I think that it was published last year so irrelevant

    If they don't get uploaded within a hour or so, I think it'll be uploaded tomorrow morning. They unfortunately don't have a set time, so best to get some sleep soon if nothing changes

    Try telling the kids on a downward spiral of depression and posting it all over this forum that. Not me that'll be in a mental ward if my grades aren't great.

    I would honestly be more worried if they took their failure to get into Oxbridge nonchalantly despite working really, really hard. It's a natural reaction.

    Hey, I just read your previous post. Seriously, don't worry. Before you assume anything, wait till you get your results. Mine certainly weren't special (AAAC with 88% in my top 3) yet I managed to get a place - and several stastical analyses i've come across clearly show that this isn't uncommon either. I'd assume the process for HSPS is quite similar to that of geography, and its competitiveness isn't much different either (3 applicants a place). If you really love your subject as you do, having grades that aren't the average for success doesn't discount you as much as you may think - especially for arts subjects.

    Also at this point it's probably worth me pointing out that I had the same doubts as you, and I was quite scared I wouldn't get an A in history year - but I did.

    Chin up! If you want, PM me after you get your results and we can have a chat.
    Yeah, can I talk to you on Thursday please?

    The thing is, the difference between you and me is that you're far, far, far more intelligent than me.

    With my experience of being around/talking with etc with Oxbridgers, they're just out of this world, so I can extrapolate that to other Oxbridgers that I haven't met, such as yourself.

    I don't know. I just want his hell to be over with, not just results day, but just the application process in its entirety.

    I can't do this. I really don't think I cannot. Oxbridgers are far smarter than me. I'd be lucky to get AAAC tbh.

    I don't know. I'm stuck. I just don't know what to think anymore. I'm completely lost.
