    • Maths:Predicted A / Achieved A
    • Spanish: Predicted A/ Achieved A
    • Italian: Predicted A / Achieved A
    Comments and reactions : I was literally shocked. Never expected 5A's, it was like a dream come true. I thought I completely failed AQA Chemistry as the first paper was impossible. Maths got 98/100 in C1, 95/100 in C2 and 81/100 in S1 (might resit the module)

    Future ambitions: Hopefully medicine, I'm thinking of applying to UCL, King's , Queen Mary and Imperial.

    Congratulations to everyone!
    Well done!!! Same, I found the first chem paper impossible too (was convinced I failed it) so I was so surprised when I got an A. But then again it's probably the Low grade boundaries!

    Should I??? I do find a trend of the mat getting harder every year but I do find the interview more intimidating😨 Are you preparing for Oxford Maths as well??
    To be honest, I was shocked at my GCSE results. They're phenomenal, but no way near Oxford lol. I'm never applying to Oxford but I think it's kinda common sense man!!!! MAT is like STEP - it's the hardest papers made for genius'. So, the interview is practically just questions about your personal statement and maybe testing a bit of your maths - those papers mean everything.

    Has anyone else seen their school get really awful results across the board or is that just mine?

    Wondering if the exam boards have decreased the % of A's they're giving out but it doesn't look like that's the case on here.

    There were a few subjects in my school in which no one got an A and in English, for example, only 1 person out of around 70 got an A, considering there are a lot of people who were predicted As, myself included (English is my strongest subject)

    Gcses? Do you mean last year's?? If its phenomenal I think you should give it a shot as well! I got 593/600 for the six modules for maths and further maths for AS this year, and I got a 65 for the MAT practice paper Ive done at school so though Im not confident I thoght it was worth a shot and I think you should consider it as well!

    No, I just got my GCSE results today XD. I will be doing AS and Further Maths AS but I don't think I'll get 593/600 - no way... jheeze you're clever! I don't think I'm on that level to go to Oxford or Cambridge - I'll try

    This sounds just like my school! Do you think there's a possibility they're giving a lower % of As out because I'm just a bit confused tbh

    Just be careful about redoing a whole year as some unis don't like it, getting all the work experience is hard work but soooo amazing - so have fun!!. Good luck!!

    These are mine. Physics I do also but I only had a mock for that as the new specification is linear, I got an A in that mock too :P

    I also do BTEC IT on the side which I'm cashing out in September

    I was pretty happy with my results this year
    Woah lol, 299 UMS. Well done, FP1 was hardest this year apparently?
