    yeh sammee thats what head of sixthform said.Many people resit so many exams neglecting A2 and so dont do so well but tbh many a2 content is very synoptic so might aswell. Sadly i listened to her advice and took the risk so didnt do much AS resists, just chem unit 2 cos its worth the most. So for bio need to get an A from a U in unit 5 to stand a chance of getting a B cos got a B in as and i dont know how unit 4 went eek. I think all 3 chem exams went better than last year, whether its good enough to get an A or not i dont know. Fortunatley my insurance is ABB so its all good. Hopefully we improve.
    Bio Edexcel?
    And Yes same. But you see, I'm scared to the point that I don't even think I can secure a B this year because Bio is my weakest subject. And I also got a U in unit 5 but ti's ridiculous because my whole class nearly got E's and U's but when they got it remarked, they went up about two grades so I'm just gonna pretend the examiners were drunk.

    For my AS I got C for bio and D for A2 so retaking to fix that. I rejected my insurance last year and decided to take a gap year but now I'm really wanting to go to Uni so I'm just gonna hope for the best. But everytime I go onto TSR after the exam (My first mistake) I get depressed because my answers are no way close to the what other people get and then I start predicting ym score and it all goes downhill from there.
    What did you get for 6bio5 last year and overall?

    for AS i got a B, with resitting unit 1 and getting same grades and for A2 unit 4 C and unit 5 U so brought my overall grade down to a C. So need to get atleast Bs for unit 4 and unit 5 but didnt think unit 4 went too great tbh but then again I shouldnt base it on feelings as I thought unit 5 exam went great and did the worst I had ever done

    I got the same for unit 4. You must have done well for unit 6 then?
    Same here. Last year F334 exam I thought I got an E because I hated it, but suprised myself with a C (Not that, it's much better)

    I messed up on so many questions in F335. E.g. I put HNH bond is 120º when its 109º, put the yield doesn't change but the rate does, messed up on the whole of the cyclo . I'm preparing for my gap year already

    I reckon OCR are gonna be complete dicks and put an A as 65 or something.
    They don't choose whatever grade boundary they want... They're a business. They need a certain amount of A*-E grades so that they'll be able to compete with the other exam boards. Sounds like very low grade boundaries this year
