    I'm A2.
    Maths was fine but school screwed me over last year for C2 and I made a stupid mistake in S1. C4 I think was fine but it's small things have me worried. Should still be fine though.

    Physics should be grand as well, though I did forget to convert units in one question so I'm nervous over nothing from that :eek:

    Further maths I really want the A*. F3 was tough however, nobody I know answered an 8 mark part in the last question, so I'm hoping for good scaling. S2 went well I think. I was disappointed last year with F1 last year as I thought I nearly aced it. M3, I would say, is the toughest exam I have done yet in my academic career. S1 was originally a FM module but they shuffle about to try to get you the best grades in both subjects.

    Geography... AS exams for us were a tough year and the January repeats went up a LOT. Like some people went from a B to like 98 ums in one of the modules. This year I messed up the human geography exam and the other one I thought was slightly more difficult than usual but not much.


    What were yours like?
    Good luck! Yeah, I hear F3 was hard (Further maths friend), further maths is mentalllllllll
    Wow, time to google up M3! My school teacher also screwed us for C2 (didn't learn log proofs)

    Chemistry was my best, biology was tough because I wrote a load of stuff and I don't know if it's going to answer the questions to get the marks!!!!!! There were also a few totally unrelated to the course questions that were just "Students: lose marks here"
    Physics 1 paper was really tough, definitely lost like 8 marks (minimum I hope), Physics 2 was much better! I literally have no clue how I've done in my practical either though (fingers crossed)!
    Maths M1 was quite hard, C1 was pretty good, C2 f'ed me up unfortunately! LOG PROOF WHAT!!!


    Good luck to everyone

    Hey guys, I was just wondering what clearing is. (I'm AS) I have a general idea but would love someone to huge me a true "definition" since I'm feeling really anxious about my results even though clearing may not matter for another yeah.
    Thanks !

    Clearing is the process in which universities get rid/clear spare places to students who have missed their offers to the Universities they applied for.

    Does anyone know how this is actually going to work tomorrow morning, do we get an email from UCAS simply stating that "something has changed" or does the wording give a slight indication as to wither it has been successful or not.

    My college emailed my parents asking if I'd be willing to take part in an interview with the local press about my results. Now, I don't know whether this is a general thing they've sent to everyone or just specific people. If it's just certain people they've sent it to, I'm hoping this is a sign of good things for Thursday then.
