    ryan said i was 6 marks off...not sure on which :/
    6 marks off an A* or 6 marks of full marks? If the A*, then it is unit 1 (the exam). If not then it is probably Unit 2. I'm not that sure though. you're better off checking the website for more information (AQA grade boundaries). Hope I was of any help to you Congratulations again

    Hi guys i got 2A*, 6As and 3Bs (the Bs are in Eng Lang& Lit). Do you guys think those grades are still strong enough for Medicine? I am not thinki ng of Oxbridge obviously. More like Barts and St-Georges kind of places. Please leave your opinion I:
    Yep definitely :yep: Your AS grades matter more and your UKCAT probably will do too so make sure you nail those and you should easily obtain an interview

    I got a C for WJEC German Unit 1, but still got A* overall, because I got full UMS in units 2, 3 and 4 not sure what happened, but turned out ok... gave me a scare seeing a C on the results slip though, considering I want to take German A-level next year

    9A*s 1A and a distinction!!

    400/400 in history
    400/400 in chemistry and physics (394 in bio)
    388/400 in geography

    Got the A in english lit, but got 77/80 on the last exam so slightly annoying but can't complain

    Happy but it's a shame they will all be irrelevant from now on

    I got 1A,2Bs,3Cs and 2Ds


    But the 2ds are very confusing as one is geography and in unit 1 i got a c in year 10 but then in year 11 i started to improve and got a b in my mock and a A in my controlled assessment ( just one mark away from that star) me and my friend received the same mark but on her paper she got an A i got a D :,( i called edexcel and asked them what was my ums was and it was 31 when i scored 43 maybe it got mixed up because my name is never on exams lists sometimes and i was given different exam timetables I am really gutted because i wanted to do geography as an alevel and my teacher was so impressed with me i could not stop crying today because i have cf and i am really proud but that d that d

    Hi guys, first of all I want to say congratulations on all of your results. It's crazy how well people have done! I couldn't believe it this morning to see my results. It was such a great feeling to see your teachers smiling and more importantly your family being so proud of you! The next step in the journey for me now is A levels and would love it if you guys could help me out! I'm thinking of doing medicine in Cardiff university. I'm taking Chemistry for A level but what shall I take with this, biology or physics? Is it also necessary to take maths? Thanks!
