    The thread last year shows it updated at 7 30 but that doesn't necessarily mean it will this year

    Track is now updating for confirmation and clearing. Hold your ground! Hold your ground!
    Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers,
    I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me.
    A day may come when the courage of men fails,
    when we forsake our friends
    and break all bonds of fellowship,
    but it is not this day.

    More WJEC Bio buddies...I swear no one takes our exam. I'm so worried because I never understand their marking, it's like they just make it up as they go along :/

    We're few and far between :erm:

    It wouldn't surprise me, the questions were so sporadic as well over such a small part of the spec :erm:

    Guys for the edexcel C4 paper, I think I roughly got 67/68 and at the worst 66. Now I've seen the grade boundaries and I know that 68 is 90 UMS but I need 88 for an A*. Do you think 66 will be enough or will it be higher?

    Thanks guys 😀

    In c4

    66 is 87 UMS
    67 is 89 UMS

    so it looks like you need 67/75 Raw marks.

    Hope this helps

    I had to retake my AS year after getting four grade Us ..had to transfer to one of the worst schools in my town. Funny thing was that my last school, which is presumed to be one of the top, said that i'd get UUUU again or highest EEEE if I retook my year with them. I'm in my A2 now and I'm predicted to get A*A*B tomorrow from the 'worst school':rolleyes:

    - moral? doesn't matter how good the school is if they can't even encourage and support their students to do well. As long as you put the hard work in, you can go from a grade U to A* easily :dumbells:. This school gave me the most support than my old school ever did, glad I decided to come here otherwise I would've been at lower rank universities like my old friends and not even take a second glance at the top rank universities.

    14hours left guys... Good luck to everyone :bl: :borat: :goodluck:

    Wow. CONGRATS. That is a story to share. Kinda inspiarational. Well done.

    What time are people setting alarms for tomorrow morning? I'd quite like to wake up and be able to check Track straight away but then I'm tempted to set it for 7 for no good reason :/
    Set your alarm for 7.30am then.

    (but obviously I haven't mentioned that officially :ninjagirl: )

    Just wondering if anyone on this forum done AQA English Literature B- Aspects of Narrative. If so, what do you think of the grade boundaries and do you think they are fair for the exam? Personally I found section A brilliant but i think section B may have let me down as I found it difficult to relate my third text to the question.

    Also is there anyone on here that sat any CCEA exams ?

    I'm only an AS student but I'm so scared about tomorrow as if I don't do well I probably wont get an offer from the university I want as they have really high standards

    And at degree level you learn that A-Level is all lies (or simplifications).

    CCEA results get posted online at 7am so I'll get up to check them then. If I haven't achieved my offer I won't even bother checking Track I'm just crawling back into bed and planning my gap year.....

    Cheers dude! That's what I thought, just hope I've done enough because I would seriously be gutted I didn't end up with an A*, especially after my AS marks

    Good luck tomorrow folks!
