    Got C C D for my first linear year in AS.
    Since we would have to do it again, next year l have to ace everything: mocks, homework etc.

    Im dissapointed with my grades and l'm willing to change them next year as high as possible.
    Can you still apply for good uni's and what will you now do?

    I don't think so. There will not be a good standard of measurement to compare you to other candidates.

    You need to show your grades. the key point is to show that you are progressing. if you get an A, retake and get an A*, that is progress and good. However, if you drop from an A to a B, then it is bad.

    My opinion is that you show good grades i.e. "A" or "A*" grades. Then you show other things that make you stand out from the crowd. Remember that you won't be the only kid with A or A* grades. So you need to tell them, here is why I am awesome, but not in an arrogant way.

    Good luck.
    Thanks for the advice! Feel so lost right now have nothing planned.

    I take 3 subjects all are the new spec so only did mocks this year. I got
    Psychology = C
    Economics = C
    English lit & lang = B

    The two C were really close to B's and I have been getting B's & A's in economics all year.
    I want to do economics at uni and need ABB. Will I even be predicted this?

    You will be fine. I understand that you will feel pressured because of all the excitement going on. When things settle, you should focus and plan yourself to achieve what you want.

    Good luck.

    Does one have to declare all their new specification AS grades on UCAS despite the fact that the AS exams will have to be retaken in year 13 along with the A2 exams?

    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?

    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?
