    I was thinking about it but its probably not worth it considering I have an A and need 93 for A*
    Ahh yeah, true. An A is still good =]

    I just scraped my A by like 2 UMS or something. I was expecting a B.

    Business Studies is definitely an easier A-Level by far, not nearly as complicated. Although, economics isn't too complicated either, at the level we study it at anyway.

    I just got my remark for Unit 4 June 2013, it went up by 5 marks and now I'm on an A overall.

    AQA are just pathetic.
