    I had to self teach myself the course :'( I was the only one from my side of the year (out of 120 pupils) doing further maths, so the rest of my class was just getting on with their normal maths.

    I feel quite confident though, and it gave me a boost for as-level maths.
    You self taught? Well done to you then!

    We were doing it as a class, but we were no where near finished so I began self teaching, but I didn't have enough time to complete it :/ but yeah it should be very helpful for AS maths! Good luck for tomorrow by the way!

    OCR has made my day! Computing is the only subject I take with them and they've lowered the A* exam boundary by 10 marks!!!! So the top grade is still a very much alive and kicking possibility

    OMG that was beautiful- that made my day as well !

    Yh, I was shocked when I saw them for the first time as well. Luckily, my coursework is almost full marks so i'll hopefully get the A*.

    BON CHANCE!

    Wait, is that bad? OCR has to be one of the best boards for science because of their relatively low grade boundaries
    I know but they're normally ridiculously low like 20 marks or below for a C decent part is they remained low for physics but chemistry 1/2/3 I think is like 47 for an A* butv that was my best one so I'm hopeful :lol:

    A* I think!

    I would love an A^ but I don't think that'll happen as I made too many silly mistakes in the exam.

    I know I mean PE is hard enough as it is, although I personally think the exam was quite good (was so happy the new section wasn't in the exam!). I wish I knew where I was in terms of my coursework .

    Haha we did those (although I didn't choose life-saving) what did you have to do instead?
    We had to all do 'proper' sports, I ended up doing Football, Table Tennis, Circuit Training and Basketball - I got 79 :/ Yeah I know so many people who random obscure stuff where it's so easy to get 10s. Wouldn't mind usually, but it's annoying that boundaries are so high due to this and the fact that our teacher marks us incredibly harshly. He could have easily given me and everyone else a mark or 2 higher on each sport

    Well WJEC P3 this year was 50% for an A and 40/60 for 100UMS. Now that's low grade boundaries.
