    If you dropped the D from AAAD you'd be on a better start for next year than if you dropped the C from AABC, both are worth the same amount of UCAS points though. If you got AABC you could resit to get the B up to an A which might give you a better overall grade but I wouldn't stress too much, just see what you get

    Because the new spec - AS exams - do not have UMS

    I seem to be passing all my linear subjects and failing my modular ones and I'm sure you'll do great with those boundaries

    Both give the same number of UCAS tariff points, but I'd say AAAD is better since you meet the conditions for AAA courses.

    Someone needs to update the link at the start of this thread for AQA. Lots of people will be looking at that and not looking at page 35/36 for the AQA grade boundaries.
