    Can someone give me some advice. I got my results today and I'm really happy with everything other than Maths. I got a B. My head teacher told me a was 2 marks off an A. He said he wants it to be remarked.
    Do you think/ what are the chances of getting 2 marks i.e. and A grade.
    I'd say it's definitely worth a go remarking it, but there's no guarantees at all you'll get an A. Good luck!

    I retook my Physics ISA because I had 70 UMS. When I retook it I got 100 UMS, but on my examination sheet, it still says my old grade.

    This is frustrating as if my new ISA was sent in, I would've achieved A* overall, now I only have a C.

    Who should I contact/complain to?
    Contact your school/teacher in the first instance.

    so maths and further would combine to make it effectively: chemistry, maths and physics...would that be acceptable?
    Yep, that's the way I'm reading it. Contact the university directly if you want confirmation, they'll deal with emails like that all the time

    Hey! Please can everyone help me. I got an A* in German (expected) an A in Spanish (expected) but I got full UMS on the reading and listening. I also got an A* in English lit. I want to do german and english lit but I can't...I want to do linguistics, I'm taking Latin, biology and history, should I take English Lit or Spanish or German!!! What is everyone else taking who wants to do linguistics?
    Why can't you do German and English Lit and drop one of the other subjects? Either way, do the one you enjoy most! A language focus is probably more appropriate for linguistics rather than literature.

    Got a B in both Maths and English. I know it's nowhere near as good as A or A* but I'm pleased with what I've achieved and I can progress onto the course that I wanted at college which is all that matters.

    1 A*, 6 A, 2 B and 2 C - I'm really happy and pleased with my results. I still await confirmation from my local grammar sixth form if I can officially attend, but I've exceeded the entry requirements so hopefully everything will be fine.

    The next stop is to study English Literature, Classical Civilisation, Geography and Biology. I'm looking to study English at university and become a novelist.

    Although maths isn't an entry requirement they are advised to take it due to the sheer competition of medical school. Alot of students will be taking bio, chem, maths then a subject of there choice. And will be at an advantage to those who take bio chem and 2 irrelevant subjects.
    Besides maths is almost certainly needed for the chemistry course, very few students go on to do well without maths.
    And if you're a student who thinks maths isnt for you then I don't think chemistry is either tbh, in my June exam about 20 marks + (a whole grade) was through calculations.
    I'm afraid this isn't true at all. There is no advantage given to students studying maths as opposed to another 3rd unrelated A level. In fact, UCL give preference to those who take a contrasting subject. This is an absolute myth.
    Taking a 4th A level gives no advantage over 3 except for places like Bart's.

    The calculations in A level chemistry require no maths ability beyond GCSE. It's rearranging equations at its most complex.

    I need urgent help (and yes, it was necessary to bold that).

    Right, so I've been made an offer by my school's sixth form for Six B's - I.. kind of dramatically failed today, I didn't get the results I wanted and got BBBBBCCCDD, obviously I'm not pleased but my courseworks were moderated down and there's nothing I can do.

    I'm not sure about my options, so if anyone could help I'd really appreciate it.

    If you got the B's in the AS levels you're taking, you're completely fine

    So I got my grades today and I got 7 A*s and 5 As which I am over the moon about!

    But I am so annoyed because in English Lit (my favourite subject), Chemistry and Physics I was 1 UMS mark off an A*. Don't get my wrong I am very happy with A grades but its just annoying because I was so close, especially with English

    Is it worth a remark? What are the chances of my UMS going up by 1? And I need to take in considerations like the cost and the chance of my mark going down..

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Have you contacted your sixth form to see if they'll still accept you as you've narrowly missed out? If not, look into a remark for subjects you got a C in, was there a near miss that you could get it up to a B?

    Failing both of those, try looking at other sixth form colleges to see if they'll take you on.

    I'm in year 10 and I got my Core Science and English Language grade, and i'm annoyed at how much stricter the UMS scores have become, for example last year I would've got 100 UMS in chemistry but this year i got 91, has anyone else noticed this?
