    A2 units I thought were steep in A*! The orals anyway
    I resat AQA AS German Unit 1 and I think it was a good paper so those boundaries were justified but I agree with you about the A2 units- 102/110 for an A* for Unit 3, that's the highest it's ever been, but it was a good paper so hopefully things should work out

    Might sound a stupid question but how do you know if the grade boundaries are low?? Also, if they are low, I take it that means people struggled with the exam??

    I cannot give specifics but if most subjects are up at my college it suggests boundaries are lower. Its hard to know until I see the data however.

    Which module did you take?, I took option 3C, Boom, Bust and Recovery.
    Same! I picked the opposition to Roosevelt question (my entire class did the other option) and the New Deal question.

    can someone please work out my UMS for OCR Chemistry F331, F332, F333, which I'm predicting to be 48, 80, 47 respectively.

    Arsey's put up the Maths ones. But the other ones are coming out at 2 am tomorrow apparently
    2 am is crazy, right? (I can't be the only one who thinks that!)

    If tomorrow morning at 8am UCAS still says that your offer is Conditional (i.e Uni is still deciding) and you have to ring them up, what exactly are you supposed to say?

    "Are you still making a decision? If so when will it be made?"... ??

    I agree the Physics ones are nice
    The Chemistry ones are really high, hence my desire to jump out of the nearest window :cry2:
    I really need a B, and I think I got around 75 which would usually get me a B but now there is a risk I end up with a C and then all of my hopes and dreams will crumble before my eyes

    Students often drop a grade at A2, thats the rule of thumb we use.

    ahhh I woulda liked that then! i wasnt too fond of critical path analysis in jan..
    ah thats good, hope you do well!
    i got a's in both, 64/80 in buss1 (an A on the dot) and 98/120 in buss2 (96 is an A so just scraped it) wbu?
    I didn't mind CPA..I understood it from D1, AS Further Maths. It was the rest of the paper that I seemed to have messed up on. I got something like 11/36 on the last question. That's what I call talent haha :ahee:
    Thanks! I hope you do well too
    I got similar UMS if I'm honest. 74/80 in unit 1 and 96/120 in unit 2...only like 8 UMS difference between our scores haha
