    Guyss one quick question-
    Unis look at my combined AS and A2 grades instead of just A2 grades, right??
    Yup. That's what matters to them.

    Congratulations! :awesome: :woo: :party:



    Are you considering remarking it?




    Would you resit the exams?
    I kind of trust the examiners to marks maths exams correctly (because it's so objective) so I wasn't planning on remarking . . . Should I ??

    I know that in decision 2 I've lost 7 marks out of 72 and if I'd lost 6 marks I'd get an a*

    Last year I got 98% in English and 97% in RE. This year I'm too sad to calculate my ums for A2. But overall in English A Level I got 90% UMS
    Check if you were close to an A*. If you were, it might be worth a remark, especially with those subjects. It's up to you though.

    Thanks for the heads up!! One more question plsss- Unis look at my combined AS and A2 grades instead of just A2 grades, right??
    They can see your results - both those you had when you applied and those that have come through.
    Your results will be for A levels (A2+AS) and AS levels.

    A2 is not a qualification in it's own right.

    How did you find the exams? Personally I found Russia a nightmare.
    For English did you do Poems of the Decade?

    If you're happy with your current grade, then I wouldn't remark the exam to be honest. It just depends on how much of a risk you feel like taking

    Hello, I received my AS results today. Sociology A, English Lit B, History B. Yet to my surprise I got a D in creative writing, despite my teacher continuously telling me I should be aiming for a B or A. Firstly I was wondering how badly this would impact me when I'm applying to uni... (looking to go to York, UCL, Birmingham or St Andrews). Secondly would it be worth getting remarked? Hope every one got the grades wanted !!!Thanks Jo.))

    Sorry to keep posting this - just panicking ahaha

    well, basically it was I self taught further maths during my gap year and tbh it's a really solid performance before uni so even though it's not an a* , i think the main thing is that it'll help for uni . I probably won't remark, but thanks for the advice

    (Hopefully actual a level grades become less and less important over time when applying to things like MSc or a job . . . )

    I have a question about results if anyone here can help-
    On one of my papers the score was listed as 90 points (UMS I believe) and an A grade (AQA Psychology Unit 4)- however when I converted this to raw marks using the AQA website when looking at grade boundaries it actually makes that paper an A*, not an A. Does anyone know how I can get this fixed? Its not a huge deal I guess but I don't understand why it has the wrong grade on it.Thanks

    Papers technically can't score an A*. It doesn't exist as a paper grade only a course grade.
