    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?

    Also close to an A in Maths (3 UMS), are you getting anything remarked? I was considering getting my C1 remarked but I've heard its extremely unlikely to go up.

    Official Predictions:
    English Literature- A
    History- A
    Psychology- A
    Law- A

    What I expected:
    English Literature- B (Teacher was adamant no one gets As at AS)
    History- A (One half was probably something close to a full mark exam, the other was a disaster. Fire alarm went off during the exam, one teacher ignored question types till the month before the exam and taught from the textbook all year. It was a struggle.)
    Psychology- A
    Law- A

    Results
    English literature- A
    History- A
    Psychology- A
    Law- A

    Comments
    I was absolutely thrilled. Cried of happiness when I found out what I'd achieved! 😅

    I can't wait till I do the FP1 paper !! Ah dam. I hope I don't flop xD when I do it. Anyway, I'm going to do AS next year so it's just going to be fun.

    I did both. The FP1 exam wasn't horrendously difficult, it had some tricky parts but I made such stupid mistakes and it ended up being my worst module at 84UMS.

    Again, M2 exam had some tricky parts but wasn't massively difficult. I missed out a 4 marker cause I didn't see it and ended up with a 92UMS which doesn't really do me justice but oh well.

    How about you?

    They were the two I was most worried about but they somehow went quite well, I got 96 UMS in FP1 because I misread the last 3 marker, and 95 UMS in M2 because I forgot to half one of the lengths in part b of the centre of mass question. Overall really happy though

    All the predictions were those ALPS ones so I didn't really believe them that much, but I honestly didn't think I had got an A in any of the sciences after the exams so was pretty chuffed on results day
