    Anyone else who did OCR Philosophy and Ethics get a low mark on one of their ethics papers? I think it was the religion poverty and wealth one because i got full marks in both my philosophy papers, 40/50 in one ethics then 34/50 in the religion poverty and wealth one giving me overall an A . The overall was 174/200 does anyone know the grade boundary? Do you think it's worth getting the low one remarked to try and get an A*? Any replies would be appreciated

    I'm so surprised with my results!!!

    I was predicted 2A*, 8A and a B but I honestly thought all summer that I was going to get mostly B's and a few As...

    Turns out I got 5A*, 5A and 1B! I know it might seem contradictory but a bit disappointed with the B as it came in Chemistry which I thought I had done relatively well in-at least in comparison to other subjects.

    Don't be disappointed at all, those are good results. Certainly above national average

    Hi, I'm still stuck on what to pick for college. I know that I definitely want to do maths and English combined but not sure about the other two I was thinking maybe geography and French or geography and dance. After college I'm hoping to be able to get into uni and possibly study maths and finance so do you think if I take dance it may lower my chances of getting in?

    If you have Maths and English Literature then Dance would be fine as a fourth. If you want to study Maths, consider Physics or Further Maths as a third option.

    Yep, long story! It's true! A few fellas were a bit surprised!

    Yeah he's bald, and I know he was sick this year? Haha, well it's a buzzer quiz with teams of 4, and there's the NI finals and you then progress to the UK finals - we've beaten Loreto for the last 3 years.
    And yeah, the Abbey is an all boys' school.
    Mr Rice's first name is Simon? Hmm... Learn something new everyday....just didn't expect to learn that. :/ yeah he was very sick, he was off for ages and the sub for him was apparently terrible so he came back a few days to help his GCSE students to make sure they didn't fail, it was so nice! He's in remission so I think he comes back properly this year. Yea I think I know one girl on our team, she's a child prodigy...like you but I'm not surprised you beat us to be honest! Lol! Yea I'd be terrible at that type of thing, I'd be awful with that pressure! Is it just random questions about anything? An all boys school......hmmmm, what's that like?

    Aw well done, that's awesome!! I know how you feel because our school has a 48% pass rate :s
    But our year did well overall despite the news saying earlier people had done worse.
    I had 7A*s 3As and 2B's (although the one b was in applied business and no-one got higher than a B and my teacher is confused :'()
    Anyway, well done again

    I was wondering for remarks, if your grade goes down from your initial, do they keep the better grade?

    Unfortunately no, thus if your grade is on the lower side of that grade, you shouldn't risk it because you could go down a grade!

    Well if you feel like it would add to your satisfaction then go for it Rs is an essay based exam so there is a possibility you could pick up those extra marks!
