    172. I blame GEOG2, as I got 92% in GEOG1.

    Very nice! Resitting geog 2? I got 196 - 140/56 respectively. I'm aiming for an A* too pfft.

    I swear GEOG4B will either make me or break me, it could either clench me the A* or I'll do crap.

    :hello: Hello again! Are you at university now? How's that going?

    A-Levels: AQA Sociology, OCR Psychology and WJEC Film Studies.
    AS Grades: ABC respectively (I also have EEUU from a failed attempt at year 12)
    Firm University/Course: Journalism, Media & Sociology at Cardiff
    Required Grades: ABB.

    Only had one exam so far. I retook the Film exam from last year. I don't really know how it went to be honest. :cookie:

    I never thought I'd be posting on here as an A2 with a university offer :eek3:
    Did you retake modules or the whole year?

    The whole year I was doing Bio, Chem, Maths and Psych (AQA Psych though). Then I moved colleges and changed subjects.

    I'm doing A2 History, English Literature and Philosophy, but my exams haven't started yet. I've done quite a bit of revision so I'm hoping everything goes alright. Hopefully I'll be going to Birmingham to study History, but I always worry about results day, every single year! I get really superstitious about everything, aha.

    Was it worth doing the whole year again? Because am predicting to get ACDDE and would really want AAA at year 13, should I retake modules or do the year again?

    It was worth it for me. Looking back I'm actually glad I failed that year. I'm now at a college I like doing subjects I love and have a conditional place at a better uni than I would have managed had I scraped through that year 13.

    You're AS? I wouldn't retake the whole year with that A... Maybe retake a few modules. You might have done better than you thought so wait until Results Day before making any decisions

    Of course you are smart enough. Those subjects just do not appeal to everyone and are quite tough!

    They truly are! Good luck with your results and enjoy your summer!
    Thank you! Good luck for your results too and you too!

    Ah, cool! They seem to be a really good combination, they fit together quite well I do OCR History with Thatcher for the coursework and American civil rights for the exam, AQA A English Literature with Othello, A View from the Bridge and The Picture of Dorian Gray for the coursework and love through the ages for the exam and Edexcel Philosophy with the philosophy section on Unit 3 and implications of the study of philosophy of religion for unit 4. What about you?

    Are you AS or A2? 2 x AS Subjects and 1 x A2
    What subjects are you taking? AS Philosophy, AS German & A2 Sociology
    How are exams going? What's done is done!! I think my philosophy one went awesome (but it was three hours long...it was too long)
    To which university are you hoping to go? I have nooo idea, I was thinking about leeds but I need to do a lot of research over next few months now that I've practically decided upon course.
    To study which subject? Joint Honours German & ab initio another language
    How are you feeling about results day? Pretty excited tbh.
    Anything else to add? I only had 2 AS exams (I had my oral german back in April) and they both fell on the same day :///, but then I had 31 days until my next exam after those lmao... loving the huge gap I have to revise for Sociology.

    I need to start looking into unis again now actually.

    Nah, I don't need to resit GEOG2 as I got a middling A. If it was like 161 UMS, then I'd resit. I have a feeling that if I had actually revised for geography, I would've got higher UMS. (3/4 topics were the same as GCSE).

    Yea, GEO4B is mainly pot luck in terms of the questions you can get. From government plans to fracking in America, you really can't tell .

    The 18th August may seem a long way away, but with exams now in full swing, it will be upon us in the blink of an eye. I thought I'd make this thread (again) having received my A2 results last year. Useful stuff will inevitably be added to this thread as time progresses. In the mean time, post your thoughts regarding exams, results day, university and perhaps predict what grades you'll get. Good Luck!

    Questions
    • Are you AS or A2?
    • What subjects are you taking?
    • How are exams going?/How did they go?
    • To which university are you hoping to go?
    • To study which subject?
    • What grades are required?
    • What grades are you predicted?
    • How are you feeling about results day?
    • Anything else to add?
    Stuff
    Ahhhhhh it's quite scary that it's this close!!
    I'm doing A2 having done AS year twice because of medical reasons
    I take Psychology, Sociology and English Lit and have an E in AS biology (wooooooo!)
    I'm not sure if this is good or not but my exams haven't started and seeing reactions online to ones so far is scaring me a bit (although apparently Edexcel were really nice with the psych resits so I can but hope )
    I'm hoping to go to Chichester to study Psychology and luckily they only want BBB (which is still a lot I guess, but the lowest of all my uni choices!) and I was predicted A*AA but I didn't want to put too much pressure on myself which is why they want lower than I'm hopefully capeable (problems of being a massive perfectionist I guess)!!
    Results day... well anything will be better than my mocks (UUU) so yeah, I'm holding out for it being okay!
    Anything else? Hmmmm, my dream job is to play in a West End orchestra but that's like gold dust so maybe I'll settle for being a counsellor and use my money to go and see lots of shows
