    AS Results:

    Maths: predicted A/achieved A
    Biology: predicted A/achieved A
    Physics: predicted A/achieved B
    History: predicted A/achieved C

    I know I should be happy with these results but it has got me so confused. I had my heart set on doing History at university prepping my personal statement and looking at universities for it but now that's out of the window and the subject I enjoy most I bet I'll have to drop. My whole life plan depended on me doing History and now it is completely messed up at the moment now, I really don't know what to do! URGH

    Comments: I wanted an A*, but since I did my AS + A2 in only one year, I'm super happy to have gotten an A overall in 1 year of A level Maths. Really happy now!!

    Just to show how ridiculous predictions can be sometimes. Hoping to resit C2 and maybe S1 to get a better UMS in maths, and maybe do the same for Atoms, Bonds & Groups for chemistry.

    I'm really happy with my results. I know to some people they probably don't seem that good, but they were enough to get me into university, I managed to get the top grade in at least one subject, and considering I almost dropped maths at the beginning of my AS year I'm very happy I got a B in the end.

    My results show how awful my teachers are at predicting how well their students will do... But overall I'm disappointed with my results as my chemistry is only a C.

    Really happy about my results, although i thought I did better in some modules (like F322 I got 128 despite me thinking it was an easy paper) it didn't seem to matter as I got 100 UMS on FP1 (which I thought was the hardest paper I've ever sat) You guys should all be proud of yours too!
