    Yes they're both media and communications. Applied for Sep 2016
    Most likely would get accepted with 200 then, as you applied rather than went through clearing

    All my friends woke up and asked me what the grade boundaries were...
    We're really worried about law :/

    I'm literally on "calming down" shifts today with people.


    I'm actually looking forward to seeing which students in our law class will be forced to drop the subject. Our school only lets you carry onto A2 if you have 2 C, or in exceptional circumstances, 2 D because they don't think it's worth it (gotta love strict schools). Our law class is split: half of us are A* material and the other half are E grade material so 18 students will be dropping law tomorrow leaving around 12 of us

    I'm not "looking to seeing people not do well". I'm looking to see our law class reduce in figures because the behaviour is ridiculous. I want everyone to do well but I want a quiet A2 year. Like half of the class has prevented the other half from performing well throughout the entire year.

    Well then I get you. How it was worded sounded like you wanted people to do badly. Apologies
    Why are people messing about in alevels? Why can't the teacher control the class?

    Why are people messing around in the class is exactly what I've wanted to know for the whole year. Our teacher has just focused on the people who want to pass because he considers it a waste of time to control the class when he could be spending those 3-4 minutes clearing up some confusion from one of us on the front row.
