    Got into Surrey for maths with ABB (A in math) when AAA was required :eek:, I was very close to an A* for math and A's for my other subjects, do you guys reckon they took this into account?

    Also, just to add, I was 3 UMS off an A in chemistry, is it worth going for a remark?

    How is that possible? Im sure the grades DO NOT GET accounted for?
    I believe they do not count towards the final A2 grade, however, I am unsure whether they have to be declared?

    AQA Eng Lit was harsh this year!



    Oh wow! Congratulations! Enjoy Iceland or Manchester. I'm sure both will be brilliant.



    That's the spirit - it may not be what you wanted but sometimes the scenic route can be just as interesting.
    Yep, I don't think it has hit me yet, but when it does will cry or whatever but will not let my depression or my predicted take over. I know what I want and I want to get it. :yep::yep::wings::wings::wink2::wink2:

    If you're in to University, don't bother with the remark :nah: . In 3 years time, no-one will even pass a second glance at your A-levels, and it's worth saving the money

    Congratulations at your placement though! :party:

    How do you mean?? I was looking to drop it anyway, as it's an AS. Just wondering what sort of impact it would have on my application and wether to get remark?

    Sorry maybe I'm not understanding you properly??
    ahaha

    Oh, if your in As now going into A2 depending on the subjects you are taking the grades you get this year will become your predicted grades, and the will have to "retake" the exams again next year but the template and the questions will be different; as you will have to go in more depth/more essay questions.
    Your grades will impact your application from what I see, they were decent/high grades so congrats!!

    What will you want to remark?

    I wrote this message before but am pasting it again just incase some people have missed and can get some more suggestions.
    I really need help and im really frustrated so i got into my firm however because i hadnt completed these DBS checks and forms to fill in before late june it means now that i cant get in this year and would have to defer my place till next year. However i didnt receive any email or anything through the post saying anything about these forms to complete however others unis did send this to me and i did complete and send it.The uni has said they have sent it and there isnt anything they can do since they are "full". I feel its unfair that i cant go because of these checks that i didnt receive that apparently cannot be done retrospectively. Is there anything i can do appeal? I really need some help

    Just wanted some advice on what to take next year. I got

    Maths A 262/300
    Geography A 190/200
    Biology A
    Chemistry B

    I'm buzzin' about my results, and want to study Biology at uni, but was wondering would it be better taking Geography over Chemistry and most likely get a higher grade, cause hoping to go to a top uni, or is it kind of essential to take Chemistry, I do like Chemistry and at this rate I'm considering all 4, but I doubt anyone would advise that.

    Any advice?

    My offer from Imperial was A*AA but i got A*A*B and was rejected
    I'm afraid A*A*B is just not the standard for computing at Imperial, and very much doubt they will overturn their offer. People have been rejected with better.

    I do hope you have an insurance.

    Do both no question IMO

    if you're aiming for imperial/oxbridge then certainly do chemistry

    for geo 190/200 is so high that even if you do poorly at A2, you'll have an A overall.
