    Just hoping I scrape into an A* or something, cos I am doing it for A level as well :/
    I wish you all the best with that! Don't be down if you get an A though, there really isn't much difference between the two I don't believe.

    why yes, I'm sure it will be !
    &
    You do need to really up your game and not take textiles for a ride, it isn't an easy subject to get an A/A* in but you may not need to do as much as I did! A good thing to do is follow the exam materials that give examples of work and follow the advice they give to maximise marks and basically reassure yourself that if it gets sent for moderation they can't possibly fault it!xxx
    Thanks

    Yeah, Year 9 textiles was pretty difficult so I know a little about what I'm going into. I'm pretty sure we have to do about 40 pages in ours :/

    Aw thank you so much! xxx

    Just like you Maths isn't really my thing either so I probably didn't get that A grade. Oh well, one can dream!

    Don't be so down about your art grade! I'm sure you've done very well.
    My teacher showed us on the last day a spreadsheet with our coursework and exam grade and I got C for both though. Relying on Moderation!

    True, but like I am planning to apply to do Engineering at Cambridge- therefore, an A in physics will look really bad you get me ?

    I doubt an A will look bad. If you get an A at AS or an A/A* at A2 then I highly doubt even a B would matter to them.

    I know you're not evil of course

    Hehe, leave him be Gorwell!



    I know I was having a convo and it was off-topic! I had no idea it was a rule, but I know now I guess.

    I'm on AQA! There was so much writing!

    Edit: that 'I know' sounded a bit big-headed, whoops!

    Our school is strict too so hope thats what happens. I have a copy of the spreadsheet so I'll see my total UMS and see how many marks I need to go up to a B at least.
