    I don't understand the "01R" papers. If they are international then why didn't I take it as I'm taking my A-levels in Spain?

    I knew our paper was straightforward and that it would be higher than normal, but that 56/70 for an A is just evil. That's some comfort, although my hope is that the lower than usual boundary for Unit 4 geog will help to compensate a little :/.
    That is evil. But as i've said before, boundaries are determined by a bell curve so that just means everyone would've performed well. Also i'm getting a bit confused, i'm guessing you mean AQA geography or something? On edexcel the unit 4 boundary is very high this time around :s

    Which paper did you sit? Your time zone isnt too far off from Britain. It's ones in Malaysia or that far away

    Nah, it's still important - can still determine your future, Uni will look at them! I'm collecting A2 results, determining my uni place :/ Failed my driving test
    Aww sucks about your driving test, but how many lessons did you have and what went wrong? Also I am sure you'll do awesome tomorrow and what subjects did you do?

    Because you're not too far away and will have been able to sit the exam at the same time. Fro the other post "Where the paper code is followed by “01R”, the paper was sat in countries 6.5 hours to 9 hours ahead of the UK."

    No, I'm on Edexcel for Geography, I guess I misread it. Looks like a fun day tomorrow. Hooray.

    Edit: Yeah, you're definitely right. I guess I was just caught up in the horror of all my other exams.

    After looking at all the relevant boundaries, I'm nowhere closer to working out if I got ABB, BCC or anything in between

    Doing AS or A2.
    Unit 2 is nice. 60/80.
    Unit 3 seems dreadful though.
