    Well done to everyone, you all seem to have pretty good grades
    I saw on the news that performance in GCSE's had gone down in the past year, I then read a status of which a year 11 had posted on facebook last night saying the following : "I don't care if I did ****, at least I had a social life ahaha", so I think it's people like that are the reason for that, not the TSR community, so once again well done, and good luck in A levels, if you are taking them, please note, there is a considerable jump in both work load and difficulty (for me at least) from GCSE to A level, so bare that in mind. Trust me, it's a lot better to try your best first time in AS than have retakes in A2, takes quite a lot of pressure off
    Most of us worked really hard and TSR was a big help for me The reason the GCSE results have gone down is that there's been a big increase in people being entered into GCSEs early, and they tend to get worse grades.

    Hey guys, I got 7a*'s, then 3a's (an A in maths (3 UMS off A* - let down only by my first exam (1st module) which I took when I was 14), then A in art, and A in English lang (which I plan to retake for A*). I also got full UMS on my r.s. exam, full ums on both French exams, and full ums on 1 module of my bio, chem and physics exams. I go to a private school for girls, and ive been there for 3 yrs, after coming from a public school. I REALLY want to study medicine, do you think my grades are enough to get in to Cambridge/Oxford? Thanks

    Hey guys, I got:
    English Lang - A*
    English Lit - A*
    Biology - A*
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - A*
    History - A*
    Maths - A
    RE (short course) - A*
    Dida year 1 - B
    Dida year 2 - A
    Applied Business - B

    I want to study medicine (preferably in Cardiff), but I am a bit concerned. This is because I know many universities don't accept applied business, nor my 2 Dida qualifications which replace ICT. In addition, I'm pleased with my RE result but it's a short course and yet again, I know lots of uni's, like Cardiff, don't accept short courses.
    Discarding my business,dida's and RE, have I got enough to work with?

    I got my Maths results earlier this year, I did both Edexcel Linear and AQA Modular and achieved a C in both!. Does this mean I get two GCSE's or am I only allowed to use one?

    Also they didn't show up on my results slip this results day and because I got the results in April I don't have anything to prove I got them! My edexcel one is on the results online thing but will I have to wait for my certificates to come to prove I got the C's? Or is there another way of proving I passed before hand?

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Well done guys!

    I managed to get 4A*s, 4As & 2Bs.
    A*s - Maths IGCSE, Physics, Stats, Religion
    As - Eng Lang, Eng Lit, Geography, German
    Bs - Business, I.T.

    I was wondering - can you can remark I.T. controlled assessments? I'm 3 UMS away from an A. I got an A & A* in the exams, but the Bs in the coursework brought it down. If not, I'll just remark the A paper, and hope for the best.

    Also are these on course to do Economics in Uni? Cheers
    Very well done, from my experience you can get IT controlled assessments remarked.

    Which uni's were you thinking of studying Economics at ?

    you just get individual papers remarked rather than the subject as a whole, so to answer your question yes you could just get 1 or 2 papers remarked

    Our school really screwed us over in regards to control assessments, I got 89,90 and 100 ums in my bio exams, and cos of my CA I only got an A overall :/, because our school decided to mark us 'extra harshly'. The same occurred with economics and spanish, and it really isnt fair :mad:

    Yes, I did hear that, but I thought that that status represented some of attitudes of those taking GCSE's, in every generation. TSR was a big help through my A levels. Yes I can see, well done!

    There are always some 'don't give a ****' people...my friend's one of them. I just hope their GCSEs give them enough of a shock that they'll get rid of their apathy before they wreck their lives.

    I have completed my A levels, I am hopefully doing a BSc in Biomedical Science at Aston University
    5 subjects, that should be hefty but easily manageable if you're good at organisation i guess The only one i took out of the selection was Biology, which is awesome, but there is a very large volume of content to learn for the exams!

    Ah, that's awesome I know it'll be a big workload but I love the subjects and I've done well in them so I hope it'll turn out alright That's the one I'm most scared of! Good thing is, I have a photographic fact memory which should help
