    9A* and full UMS in English Lit, which is what I plan to likely study at uni. Somehow managed to bamboozle the OCR music people into thinking my coursework was great, whilst getting Bs in the exams Have spent entire day in a haze of fatigue and shock, got a (horrific) photo of me alongside the other 9A* people from my school (who all look gorgeous - curse my lack of photogenia), watched a lot of movies and ate a lot of junk food, and can barely remember half the things that have happened. Today is simultaneously one of the best and one of the most surreal days of my life...mainly due to that last night is the first all-nighter I've ever pulled :O
    This sums up how I've felt today so well! Congratulations on the 9 A*s by the way!

    No, an AS is just counted as an AS. Maybe it is the school's score? My friend did AS Maths early, but his sheet didn't have anything like that on it (st least I don't remember). But all I know is an AS is just an AS. It doesn't count towards your GCSE Results, even if you took it during your GCSEs. Do you get me?
    Yh but this isn't an AS its an A2 therefore it won't be counted in my uni offers

    You'll need pretty much straight A's at A-Level, and they're harder, so bear that in mind.

    Yehh i know!i know what i did wrong with my gcse's (didnt start revision early enough)! so i've learnt my lesson nd know what i need to do for a levels!

    Ahhh pharmacy's good!do u have any ideas on what uni u want to go to??

    Anyone else get a stupidly low grade for their Edexcel PE theory exam??
    I'm not too bothered personally because although I got a B in the exam I got an A* overall, but I'm the only person in my year that got more than a C and some of my friends are really disappointed!!

    Predicted grades / Actual Grade:
    English Lit: A* A
    English Lang: A* A*
    Maths: A* A*
    Biology, Chemistry& Physics: A*A*A* AAA*
    Geography: A* A
    Art: A* A
    RE: A* A*
    German: A A*

    Comments:
    Before: I knew from the first week an A* in Art for me was impossible. If I get an A* in Maths it will be ridiculously close. It is impossible for me to get an A* in Physics due to me having to get 103% in the final unit... I think the others I may have achieved... just. Think I may have got an A* in German as I have been doing extra work as I wanted to show my teacher I could get an A* if I tried really hard.
    After: ...How on earth did I get an A* in Physics?! Very happy with my German. Disappointed with my Geography as I got two A*s in the papers but my coursework dragged me down (considering in the mocks I got C's in both papers I'm very proud though). English Lit I am also disappointed, but got full marks in my coursework so again I'm proud.
    However, I feel I can't really complain as I still did very well. Plus my friend got the first A* in Food Tech in our school for 15 years and is off to do a chef diploma. I feel like a proud parent!

    What are you going to study for Alevels/Btechs/IB:
    Biology, Chemistry, Decision Maths and English Literature

    Did anyone manage an A* in AQA English Literature?

    So, I got 4 marks away from an A in English language. I am more than happy with a B, but the only thing is in one of my English exams I got a D, the other I got an A (and in coursework I got an A) I just find it so strange that there's such a difference. The D is only one mark off a C, and since my whole grade is only four marks off an A, should I bother asking for a recount? I am happy with my grade, I just find it annoying to see such a difference between two exams and since it's English the results are known to move a bit since it's an essay subject, right?

    And in Chemistry I'm 2 marks away from an A*, I am DEFINITELY very happy with my results, but should I try asking for a recount just that for any small chance I could end up sneaking in an A*? xD

    Very happy with my grades though, just wondering what other people thought I should do, especially with my English ouo. Congrats on everyone today, it seems that loads of us on here are so happy with our results, commiserations to those who are not, but the grades were predicted to be messed up this year, so it might be down to the messed up system this year ;u;

    Really?? I got 61 UMS with 120 UMS for the coursework so must've just scraped an A*. It's so strange!! I wouldn't be surprised if everyone in the country went for a remark - you definitely should anyway!

    I want to stay close to home, and the two closest universities that do Pharmacy Degrees are UEA (Norwich) or De Monfort University (Leicester). What about you?

    I would love to say well done to everyone individually but I don't know how to quote more than one person and I fear I would spam the whole thread :P
    But congratulations to ALL of us! We all did great! I'm just bursting with happiness for everyone!

    Do you reckon I should? I don't think PE can change much but then again the essay questions are subjective :confused:
