    I wish the grade boundaries are released a lot earlier, would save a lot of stress and uncertainty

    Indeed but the point is that they have to correct everything and check everything so that they can reliably draw the grade boundaries.
    Although I'm quite hopeful I've met my offer I'm still anxious.
    What grades do you need to achieve?

    Yeah indeed. I don't know anymore, I was confident but then with results day becoming closer, I am becoming more and more anxious.

    As each day goes by, I become less confident... I finished my last exam thinking I'd got A*A*A through unofficial mark schemes but now I'm on A*AB -
    tomorrow it'll probably be UUU. Sigh

    Well last year my teacher had told me I'd got an A/B in my biology ISA and on results day I got a U and something pathetic like 9 UMS - that definitely puts doubt in my mind that the same may happen this year lol

    I think you can remark it ?? I mean I've done OCR bio and chem practicals, and you can remark those, so I don't see why not. Teachers don't always give you the most accurate information anyway, my chemistry teacher started arguing with me that you need 90% across AS AND A2 chemistry to get an A*... My maths teacher did the same

    Some teachers are so cluessless about their own subjects ; for instance my psychology teacher didn't even know that you could retake old spec exams next year and so told everyone that it's your last chance and you'd have to do the new alevel over 2 years :/ !

    anyone who has done A2 philosophy and ethics (OCR) how would you say the step up is from AS, how did you find it ? I don't know if I should continue it or not.
