    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
    You may not be able to apply for Oxford because you need 90% or above of your grades to be A*. You took 10GCSES so at least 9 need to be A*. Cambridge don't look so much at GCSES but at A levels so of you do well in year 12 you could stand a chance of going there

    Do you mean a public school or a state school? They are two completely different things.

    Basically, I was supposed to be attending a private school where I achieved a 50% scholarship, but due to financial reasons, it would be difficult (not impossible) to send me there. I received my GCSEs this week and achieved 14A*s and want to take Spanish, Maths, Chemistry and Biology for A-Level (I dont mind taking IB either) and was wondering whether good sixth forms such as St Olaves, tiffins, etc, or private schools that can give me a good scholarship, e.g. city of london, epsom college, reigate grammar, etc would still consider me?

    Also if anyone could give me good grammar schools in south east england/central london, it would really help!

    thanks

    I feel so inadequate next you !

    Hello My friend appealed Schools like Tiffins , Newstead Wood , Wallington Boys and Wallington Girls after getting her results and within 3 days , she got into all of them, she did really well , at got 8A*'s so I doubt any sixth form will turn you down because your results are exceptional! , for IB , try dartford boys, or try Sevenoaks school ( because your results are amazing you may get a scholarship)
    good luck , I hope this helps

    For GCSE I got an A* in Maths and an A for English Literature

    For A levels I am studying Biology, Chemistry, Physics and English Literature. I don't really have a great passion for maths alone and prefer English lit, but for GCSE I got a higher grade for maths. I don't know if I should do maths instead of English lit. Any suggestions? I need a A for the subject and am unsure which one will get me that

    You can do another AS in the 2nd year? I had no idea! I never did GCSE Economics. I'm guessing you liked it which is why you're carrying on. (:

    Hey! I did maths AS at the same time as GCSE too and got an A in AS with pretty good UMS/UCAS points. It's definitely manageable if you schedule your revision and if you enjoy maths it's just easier for you (:

    The thing is, as Jan exams are scrapped for A level it might be hardd doing 3 AS units in June along with your other GCSEs but again, schedule revision and DO PAST PAPERS!! They help looadss!
    Hey! I'll definitely have a think about it!I really like maths as well! :-)

    Yeah, I had the same disappointment as well, like I was getting A's and A*S in all the in class tests then I ended up coming out with a B ...
    OMG same! I even earned the award for the best girl in our year at Economics (before results) the bam, for everyone who earned an A* it was 'so unexpected!' then there's me in the corner, scowling at their success :unimpressed:
    I would get it remarked, but i don't think there's any point. I got two A's, but in Unit 1 i got a C! Several UMS below an A. Still, it's an improvement from my previous grade (unit 1 was a retake) which was a D...
    I don't know, my teacher said it's because i wrote at a A-Level level, which i'm inclined to believe, because i revised so much, but really i think it's because i find it hard to wrap my head around essays that aren't English, i tend to ramble, making it less concise...
    Stupid economics.

    I'm so annoyed.

    I got full UMS marks in both listening and reading but my writing got moderated down from an A* to a B, bringing my overall grade to an A (((
    I am wondering whether GCSE French has actually got harder this year or whether examiners have just decided to make Listening easier and Writing harder because I'm seeing a lot of 100% UMS scores for those and I even got 100% for those and for Listening I was only expecting an A but I thought I would get around 271-272/300 overall and although, my Writing coursework wasn't marked too highly 74(a) ,I got 271/300 UMS.I was excepting high UMS in the Writing based on what I'd seen on the website as examples.I upped my prediction to 272 UMS based on the exams but my revision and coursework predictions said 271 UMS-UMS just seems to have been transferred from the Writing to the Listening.

    Please help!

    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!
    You should probably ask your school because my school printed off a sheet containing all my results I had ever got so it means I don't need to use my old results sheets so your school probably has verification of the results and can print them off for you.

    Ah that's a shame!! Some people come pretty far each day but I suppose 3 hours is a bit much. It's got amazing grounds. Anyway good luck!!
