    Can we all just take a moment to appreciate 53/75 is an A* for C3 AQA? What in the actual f*ck, Mr. Examiner? :rofl:
    Personally I wouldn't take that as a good sign as it probably meant that a lot of people ****ed up :lol:

    Yooo aqa boundaries lit af bring on tomorrow
    Well, PHYA4 and PHA5A are exactly as I predicted with 120 UMS being 65/75.

    CHEM4 is two marks higher, CHEM5 is two marks higher.
    The ISA boundaries are disgusting...

    I'm even more scared for AS results than I was for GCSE. Reflecting on how the exams went I can't even remember how I did now

    I suppose not, but I didn't find it THAT challenging so it would be 53 for a bloody A*. I can literally ignore like 2 of my questions in that paper and get an A*. I'm pretty happy with that to be honest, could actually stand to get my A* xD

    Don't be. Though next year for A2's, you SHOULD be since they carry much more weight. xD

    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.
    I blame the teacher
    He should be able to control the class
    Kick them out if they are messing about

    It depends on the course and the university.

    There's practical limits on how many students a course can take - but even in clearing a university knows they can make 2-5 offers for every place available (in some courses/universities) because not everyone who gets a clearing offer from them will choose that option.
