    I'm out and my 3G signal is fairly slow. (only the TSR app seems to be not-so-slow) Would someone please be so kind as to let me know whether the AQA PHYA5 grade boundaries are lower/higher than usual? much appreciated!

    Slightly lower for PHYA5 - A.
    50 for an A

    You're so going to get an A in philosophy.
    I hope so... It's what I'm counting on for for uni!

    I need 48/70 for an A overall from the Philosophy paper and 54/70 on the New Testament.. and I read the question wrong and got my essay all wrong. I wrote about Jesus' audience, not Mark's audience

    Eh.. I'm going to get my hair done in a bit to try calm down.. but I am SO nervous right now..

    Plus looking at my accommodation application for Bath on the tracker which has suddenly vanished makes me think they rejected me :cry2::cry2::cry2::cry::cry::cry:

    I spoke to Edexcel via email, they said the boundaries are coming out at 2AM tomorrow morning. So don't lose any sleep.
    Ah cheers for that! But that sounds quite weird... Any explanation? Or are we going to see another grade boundary fiasco

    Almost too knackered to stress out about exams now, just came back from a vicious bike ride.
    I'm pooped.
    Cookies and a cat nap on the agenda for today.
    Best of luck, everyone. If if all goes to pot for us, then we can organise a mass exodus to Thailand or something. :console:

    What are my chances of getting an unconditional offer from my firm if my grades are A*A*AA and my offer is AAA? My offer needs me to have an A in maths which is the A2 result I'm waiting for but I'm afraid I might end up with a B.
    Input appreciated!

    You might as well just wait for the actual results by then right?

    Umm, if you get A*A*AA and your offer is AAA, then you've done better than your offer...

    Does anyone know if the Edexcel and AQA grade boundaries have been released for AS Level yet? Sorry, I'm rubbish at using exam board websites!

    For AQA Biology Unit 2 you need 72 marks out of 85 to get full UMS and for Chemistry Unit 2 you need 99 marks out of 100 to get full UMS. I thought some of you might want to know as not everyone is able to access the UMS convertor.
    Thanks for that!

    Biology is so low
    But Chemistry is ridiculously high even though I thought it was a hard paper!

    I think she was referring to the part about the subject specific requirement i.e. maths

    If AQA don't give me a grade tomorrow.. they should expect their building to be on fire at about 9am.

    please stop living under this delusion that AQA will give you a grade because quite frankly they won't, you need to sit the exam in order to get the grade, it wasn't your fault but the maximum you can get is 5% extra marks

    Yeah, but she didn't sit the exams. They'll be predicted for her!
