    Can someone please help me with the UMS system? I have no idea how to work out the actual mark?!
    It should tell you the UMS, the maximum UMS and then your grade beside it.

    Oh I see. You're looking to find out what you got in each paper? I think AQA have a UMS converter on their website, so you can put your UMS in and it should tell you what you got. (I'm with CCEA and they give us the raw marks on the sheet).

    I got 4A*s, 6As, and a B.

    Not happy with part of it though.. I got a B in Latin and an A in geography. I had a panic attack and had to be taken out of both of my geography exams and placed in another room, and still got an A, yet in Latin I got a B when every mock that I did {and we did one every 2 weeks} I got an A or an A* in.. I'd be happy if I could switch those two grades.

    Try not to stress out too much, you've still got more GCSEs than a lot of people! Have you considered remarks or retakes? Speak to your school about them if you think they're an option and they'll be able to give you more information on your suitability and how to go about it. They'll also be able to help you with finding a college. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    Well you must go to a very veeery top class school. You can do anything you want with those GCSEs so you're not at a disadvantage what so ever.

    I got 2A* and 7A, 3B, 1C, 1D

    However, my problem is that I got a D in English Language and a B in English Literature... which one accounts for the full English GCSE Degree (Are they averaged out to a C for example, or Language takes over the Literature...), I feel like dying...

    If so, then I'll have to re-sit it... but do you still think that I can go to Oxbridge as I got a real passion for chemistry and got all A* for Science tests but only the controlled assessment derived me into a B, concluding my score of an A for each science...
    I'm not certain but I'd try retaking the english language exams you ballsed up in the worst to get to a B.

    6 A*'s, 4 A's and 1 C, I am SHOCKED! I did not expect this, and to even get A*'s in two sciences was never expected. :O

    Here's the breakdown:

    Spanish - A*
    French - A*
    Food Technology - A*
    Biology - A*
    Physics - A*
    English Literature - A*
    English Language - A
    Maths - A
    Chemistry - A
    Music - A
    Drama - C

    Comments:
    Really shocked receiving more A*'s than I expected, and to receive an A in Music when my teacher thought I'd get a D is even more crazy! Would have liked a B in Drama and I think I nearly reached it, but I'm still so happy with everything and didn't expect it.
    wow, really well done. Hard work pays off

    Don't worry about too much you can still do well in A levels ans then that will overwrite your GCSEs If you apply wisely
