    Hi,

    Could anyone help me decide whether to go for a remark for my P.E. grade? I know it's not a very important subject in most peoples' eyes, but it's my only C grade and I am literally 1 mark off a B and 9 marks into a C grade.
    I got an A in the actual theory exam but my practical grade of a C brought it down JUST enough to take away my B! :mad:
    Is it worth the remark?

    Yeah, from what I know from people who've gone, your AS matter a lot more than GCSEs and you have good grades

    I've heard that as well, but I don't want to stand out negatively because my GCSEs are worse than everyone else applying.

    I got 6A* and 5A, would I still have a chance for medicine? My A* were maths, bio, chem, physics, re and geography. My As were history, music, French, English lang and English lit.

    Hi for my GCSE's i got 5 A*'s and 7 A's, and have chosen to take history, maths, chemistry and physics for As level and then i plan to drop maths. I'm not sure if i have made the right choice as i would like to do medicine but what med schools could i apply to without biology?
    We've got a list of entry reqs here. It shows you the medical schools that'd consider you.

    Why don't you want to take biology?

    Yes to both of you, those grades are perfectly fine for medicine - it just depends on where you want to apply and you avoid GCSE heavy unis!

    Those are more than good enough for medicine. Power on with applying!

    To where? Cambridge? Sure. See the bottom presentation for some data. Note that it having high ums at AS level that denotes a good chance, not really gcse grades. http://www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergrad...hers/past.html

    6 As and 6 Bs, I would have gotten an A in English Language as well as Literature, but I was accidentally entered into foundation because of a mixup at school, so I could only get a C in the final exam, despite getting a B in Year 10. I got a C, so luckily I got a B overall, but what can I do? Should I retake the final English Language exam, or should I leave it? I've spoken to the school, but they didn't do anything.

    Why did everybody get to find out how many UMS they got except for me? I really wanted to know and my results slip didn't say it ;(
    Mine didn't either, I had to email my exams officer and request them.

    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?


    Congratulations! I'm doing similar A-levels to you! Bloody well done on that A in art in particular - know so many people who've gotten Cs and Ds in it, it's a ridiculously hard subject. And German! Christ!

    I somehow managed full UMS in English Literature, but that's only because a) it's the subject I love most in the universe and paid the most attention to, b) we had a beyond epic teacher, and c) getting extraordinarily lucky in the poetry exam. English Lang matters far more anyway

    Omg Im having the exact same problem!!! ARGH I dont know what to do about it

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Many people have had this problem so I think AQA may have to do a full remarking of everything... If, of course, they ARE wrong, which I'm now convinced that they are!

    Does anyone know if I get my AQA English Language remarked, will they remark the coursework or just the exam? In my speaking and listening and exam I was only 2 marks off an a* but I seriously don't knoq what went wronf with the reading and writing coursework mark. It was 96 ums, and my teacher, who used to be an examiner, gave quite low grades anyway for coursework but I still ended up getting in the A* band? so overall I did quite well, it's just the 96 ums which has brought my grade down to being 21 ums away from an A* is there any hope?
