    I hope I get a nice examiner for French. It's so unfair.

    its really a joke how a lot of uni places rest of you getting lucky with a nice examiner , and grades going up by two whole grades is just ludicrous
    Indeed.

    As many have requested, here are the AQA Summer 2016 papers. The corresponding Mark Schemes and the Examiners' Reports will not be available until the day before the results day and, since collecting them is hugely time-consuming, I don't promise to upload them on that day. Also, I believe there are some papers missing from the link but please do let me know which ones they are and I will try to upload them by the end of next week.

    (Note that these are the AQA materials only-I don't have access to the materials of other exam boards.)

    (SH0405- Perhaps you should add the link to the first post. )
    Hi thank you so so so much!! May I just ask though if you also have the nbio6x (empa) paper this year?

    I imagine this has been discussed within the thread somewhere but when do AQA tend to release grade boundaries/ums conversions?

    Is this public? Or is it like the mark schemes where it is restricted access?

    Mum is insisting that she takes me to a couple of uni towns/cities so I can see the area... She thinks I'm going miss Cardiff

    On the plus side Bournemouth has a great Advertising course! She's taking me to see the city the day before Results. At least I'll have a distraction! 😂

    Advertising? I thought you wanted to study something different.
    And to be fair to your mum now that exams are over its a good time to start thinking about your safety net so that you still get somewhere. Just as long as you don't fall in love with your safety net and get upset that you got into your firm :rofl:

    Yeah my firm is Journalism, Media and Sociology but that one caught my eye. It's also got a year in industry and Advertising is one of the careers I'm considering anyway

    Thanks No, this wait is definitely worse purely because of the sheer amount of uncertainty 😢

    Yes but we have fear to distract us. After that it's sheer boredom.
