    I understand that for the overall grades, but this is just the one paper. I know I didn't get an overall A*, I just don't understand why what I have on my results sheet isn't the same as what's on AQA's website. Who would I contact about this, my school, or should I email the exam board?
    That's what I just explained to you!!! A* isn't a module grade, your sheat isn't wrong. The mark scheme shows A* because it makes its easier for candidates to spot and identity not because it's the A* module grade because that doesn't exist.

    You're just one or two marks away from an A here, why would it be hard for you to get As or A*s next year? It sounds like you're very much on the right track!
    I got B and Cs at gcse so just really trying to get high grades. However, thanks

    Hi just wondering what cambridge policy on AS UMS averages is with the new linear A levels, got my AS results today and only 2 of the 4 have a UMS score so will they look at the average of those 2 or do it differently? Thanks

    You're definitely not the only one who seemed to have been offered English by SOAS when you wanted to do Law. If you're not going to enjoy English, don't sign up to it. You're paying £9k a year for tuition fees so if you're going to not like it absolutely don't do it.
    That's true
    But then there's the argument...what makes you think they will take me next year
    Incase they reject me

    I have but don't really like the uni's
    Plus I have to stay in London
    I'm not a huge fan of private universities but http://www.law.ac.uk/clearing/ is one exception. Their London LLB is in clearing and they have the industry contacts that offer a good advantage.

    It isn't your typical university experience but it's worth considering.

    SOAS *do* accept transfer applications into year 2 of their LLB. There's no guarantee that you'd be able to swap universities in year 2 but you'd have a stronger chance than you would on a BA English course.

    You hit the A* requirement for the module but the actual A* grade only exists for the full qualification. It's saying that this module meets the requirement you needed to hit to get the A*.

    They may not take you next year - you may have to look elsewhere or assess your options that way but there's no point taking a course you're not sure about.

    No problem. If you're showing progress there's really nothing to worry about

    Why would they though? If you become an A/A* student they won't discount you just because you've taken another year. Lots of top Russell Groups like Warwick are more than happy to give offers to people who've taken another year to improve their grades.

    But the point still stands. It's far worse spending £9000 every year on something you don't want to do. You'd be putting yourself through at least three years of your life doing something you're not sure about. It just doesn't make sense.

    I'm 99.9% sure this is because a single paper cannot be graded A*

    Thank you so much for your advice. Going to think it through
    Either go Brunel and try and transfer for second year
    Or take a year out and retake to try and get A*s

    Exactly no guarantees
    I'm probably going to retake tbh because I really want to go to SOAS
    Thing is I'm not even sure I can retake with the new alevel changes
