    Can you please send me the link on Chem ISA grade boundaries. It seems like you can't get 0UMS in ISA if you score at least 1 mark?
    Here are the grade boundaries:

    http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...-JUNE-2013.PDF

    The one I was talking about was the A2 ISA. The AS was generally one mark lower. And no, if you score at least one mark, you can't get 0 UMS.

    Here is the UMS converter if you want to see what UMS you get for each mark:

    The A2 exams aren't on here at the moment, but the AS ones are.

    I don't know whether you have seen these or if you want to see these but this thread has all the edexcel mark schemes.

    Enjoy

    and good luck

    If there are any Bristol firmers here, try checking your accommodation status. If, when you attempt to login, it says "You are not eligible to apply for Undergraduate accommodation online", then I think you've missed the offer. It says this for me now but when I logged in a couple of days ago it allowed me to check my status.
    Thanks for the tip!! I haven't applied for accommodation so was wondering at what part of the application stage you were at? If i can log in and start selecting preferences for accommodation is that past the stage you mentioned that it said 'you are not eligble to apply" or do i keep going to reach that stage? Cheers

    Nice, little plans going on there!
    In the similar positions to you at the moment too but I am wondering why you have to buy your own ones!?
    Doesn't your school supply you with one for ray subject!? Or...
    Is it just mine that is one that does!?

    What subjects are you awaiting and what grades are predicting from your perspective?

    Is your school private/independent or an academy? That might be why. Our school makes us pay for everything, we can apply for bursaries to help but only the poorest of students can get them (which is the right thing). Yeah, my textbooks cost me £20 a piece and that's 3 subjects for next year, with 2 sides to each course. REALLY EXPENSIVE.

    In terms of grades, I've just finished my AS and I'm awaiting grades from History, Politics, Economics and English Literature. All with AQA except Economics with OCR. I'm expecting to do ok, this is my first EVER results at this stage, as I didn't need to do any January exams- so I'm quite anxious. Hoping to get an A in Politics, A in Economics and hopefully at least a B in the other two.

    To be honest, If I don't do as well as expected I'll just take in on the chin and accept that I didn't work as hard as I could have, and I'm going to turn things around next year to get my Uni requirement which range from AAA to ABB.

    What about you?

    I have fully applied for the accommodation, choosing my halls etc. I'm not sure if it'd be relevant if you haven't applied yet. No idea why it's using that wording and telling me that I can't apply when I already have done - I assume that they just reset it for people who have already been rejected.

    Accounting horrible and Business confused.

    I'm just lucky I've already done my F.Maths and Maths. Takes away some of the pressures.
    nice stuff. Well done! Economics left to worry about then. What do you need for uni?

    Thank you! Is just that I score 57% in my ISA A2 and my teacher said I score 0UMS? but I checked on the UMS converter and it said I got 14-15UMS?

    Bath firmers!

    I've been logging onto the accommodation portal for Bath every now and again just to see if they give any hints as to whether or not I have been accepted. Well today I could not log in and was given this:


    Criteria not met

    Currently your course offer status does not meet the requirements required for you to use this system.


    Can anyone else try and see if everyone is getting this or if it is because my status has changed to declined?

    Thank you loads
