Maths for instance, i have never in my life got higher than a low B in maths(I got an E in my maths common entrance!) And then i ended up with an A!! It flummoxes me too!

    Can anyone help me? I did edexcel maths and I got an A but it doesn't saw how many UMS/ raw marks I got, just over all points which is 52? What does that even mean?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Edexcel Maths isn't modular, so they don't show each individual paper and there is no UMS. 52 is the number of points for the A grade received.

    Oh, and does anyone know the UMS grade boundaries in total for French? Like 250/300 for a B, 260/300 for an A etc.

    Huh? So I won't know the actual mark I got?

    Hey if anyone could share their options on this then it would be very much appreciated.
    Basically I was 1 UMS of getting an A in citizenship and it was my only B grade. (I got 9A*s, 3As, 1B) So I was just wondering is it worth getting it remarked just for that A? Also it's somewhat of a subjective subject so do you think that I may get that A?

    Thanks in advance!

    No. I also took the same exam, and I don't know either, and I would have liked to know...
    And to answer your other post, if it's AQA French, then 270 is an A*, 240 is an A etc..

    I think my mum feels really bad about my grades She said that two months of revision wasn't enough and I should have done more.
    I'm sure you won't of done that bad.Just think once we all get to A level these GCSE will be like our sats.

    I wouldn't say it's dissapointing but I know the feeling you have. I got 3A's 5B's and 3C's and although it sounds good I have the feeling I could have done better which I think is what you're experiencing

    I got 10A* and 1A (Eng. Lang), GOT FULL MARKS IN ENG. LIT! (I thought I was going to get a B!)
    I was four marks off an A* overall, and I am going to put it in for a remark.
    What are my chances of getting an A*?
    the paper is out of 80.
    Thanks everyone

    If I wait until September 4th to speak to my school about getting an exam remarked does that give me long enough to sort it out? ( I really want to get it remarked so I don't want to miss the deadline) (Ones on AQA ones on OCR)


    Also could someone tell me how I go about getting exams remarked?

    Don't compare with your siblings, all that matters is that you have amazing grades that will allow you to meet most-if not all entry requirements for the college/uni you want to attend! Don't be disheartened, your results are amazing!

    Haha, i bet you were too! Also, in english lit, i had never actually written an essay for one of my books in exam conditions before (also i did igcse so we weren't allowed any of our books in the exam) and i was like oh **** i'm going to fail and i got an A*. Similarly, the day after my french listening and reading i was sobbing to my mother saying i'd failed french. Turned out i got full UMS marks in the listening, reading and speaking then got 83/90 on the writing and got almost full marks overall! The exam boards be cray cray!! haha

    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?
    Yeah, I did - what texts did you do? Also, for some unknown reason, I too was predicted an A* in Biology and ended up getting an A, but I got an A* in Chemistry lol. I genuinely found Biology the easiest, and yet I got lower than what I was predicted :/ I got an A in Physics though, which I was happy about because I thought I had failed the second paper. What examining board were you with for the sciences?

    If the exam has less definitive answers theres a chance you could get the extra mark due to a different examiners opinion.

    Personally if I was in that situation I would get it remarked because let's face it, straight A's sounds nice and looks pretty written down.
    The only thing to lose is money if the grade doesn't change. But the decision is yours.
