I think it's where each GCSE grade is assigned a certain value and you add them all up and divide by the amount of GCSEs you did.

Right, do you know what the value is for each grade?

My college has:

A* = 3
A = 2
B = 1
C > = 0

And 20 was "good" enough to get into Honours or something.

Ah thanks, I wonder why the VIth form I'm going to asks for an average point score of 5.8. Must be a different system or something.

Maybe there's is:

A* = 8
A = 7
B = 6
C = 5
D = 4
E = 3
F = 2
G = 1
U = 0

?

That must be it, thanks

Wait did you make that up or get it from a source?

Hey,

Which exam board do you have for As-level chemistry this year?

Jatz
WJEC
10. (Original post by Jatz07)
what grades are you aiming for at A-level?

Oh and is it ok if maybe throughout the year I might get stuck on c2 to ask you and Ryan for help?

Jatz
I have grades in my head,,don't wanna say them until I'm sure

Yeah
11. I consider myself lucky in that I already have the required GCSE grades for three of my A-levels...just need to panic over English Lit...

What's wrong with two ? If Obiejess is hoping to study law then physics isn't exactly a required A-Level subject.
That's the point lol. 6 A levels is a lot of work and considering 2 of the subjects are sciences, which are not really needed (as far as I know) there's not really much point. May aswell just take 4, all of which seem somewhat relevant, and make life easier!

I'm not doing them all at the same time, I'd be doing 8 if I could I'm doing A French 2 years early amd AS Maths a Year early. Because of my sixth form I can only take 4 to A2 but might squeeze in BS as an AS

What A-levels are you doing?

Jatz
I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths, and English Lit. Yourself?
15. Unlike Year 10 Results Day, not looking forward to it at all this time

Same for me for maths and further maths
17. it seems that people dont want to do physics? i have chosen BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS AND MATHS(6 UNITS).
However i am not too sure about physics. Maybe you guys can advise me what i can do instead of physics. I want to study medicine.

I don't already have the grades, but I'm pretty confident I already have what I need for my subjects... I think even if I lost 3/4 of the marks in the final exams for them I would still get into the courses so nothing to worry about for me really

I think that's the most desireable combination of A-Levels for medicine, but you could replace physics with something that interests you like a language or humanity without losing out in your application. Just make sure you choose something that interests you and something you do well in.

I'm doing Physics, but that's because I want a career in it, for Medicine I don't think it is all that helpful, so if there's something more useful or that you enjoy more take that I would say
