    Do you have to declare all of your AS grades( including new spec linear courses)? There are people that have done 2 AS courses and done well in them but have also said they are going to do their linear courses in A2. The AS doesn't count so there is no need to declare it right? Also do you have to cash in an AS subject that you decide to drop (despite it being a new spec linear course)?
    (Original post by Dynamic_Vicz)
    Thanks. Do I have to cash in the AS i drop as well...?
    If your results slip showed an overall AS grade (and not just module grades) then your AS grades have been cashed in and must be declared unless you want to risk applying with fraudulent information.

    Does anyone know if you need your exam certificates as part of uni enrolment? My uni will send out enrolment info from September 1st, but it'll be too late by then to request them. I don't have my AS certificates or A2 ones (obviously not yet), but I do have results slips?
    You will need exam certificates for completed qualifications (so AS and GCSE) usually. If you applied post results (ie in a gap year) then you'd need your A level certificates.

    Results for this year are verified by UCAS so you won't need certificates (but make sure you collect them and keep them safe!)

    How do I know if I've got full marks in a paper or not?

    In one of my GovPol papers, it says '100 a' under Mark Equiv, and in the other paper it says '93 a'

    Is this UMS or raw mark???? And is the 100 a representation of full marks, really need to know please, thanks.

    The number will represent your ums. However full ums doesn't always mean full marks. In some exams you can drop six marks and still get full ums.

    Awe how did it go? I hope it went alright, it will all work out.
    I got A* in Maths and Bio. A in Chem and Physics. B for my epq which was mostly done a day before i submitted it T_T. I'm satisfied even though i could have put more effort in it. I guess I'll drop Oxbridge and apply to another uni.

    You need to go on the ums convertor and find out the distribution of ums with raw marks. Aqa and ocr do it, don't know about other boards. They have tables showing the ums for each number of marks. You need to find the number of marks needed for full ums in the table.

    Ah, that sucks. I'm doing Physics and Astrophysics. Have you got an accommodation offer yet?
    It's gonna take me a while to get used to the slang I think



    Couple of weeks? That's terrifying. Visas take ages here as it is.
    Did you call them up or email?
    I emailed them. Visa takes 15 working days so it's best that you explain your situation to UEA so they can speed up the process of producing your CAS.

    I'm a bit confused with some of my results and wondered if anyone had any thoughts it previously remarking experience? I take English Lit, RS, Art, and psychology for AS level with all of them being the new linear exams apart from RS which is old style. I got As in all of them apart from English which I got a C! Which is weird as I'm predicted an A for it and have never got below a B in any practices? But when looking at my grades for both papers I got a high A nearly full marks in Paper 2 but a U in Paper 1?? My teacher is convinced it's a marking or clerical error but I'm scared it's not, but the jump from an A to a U is big? The exam board is AQA and I've applied for a remark and recall of the script but don't know what the likelihood of it going up is??

    Well I wouldn't say you have finished C3 and C4 since practice to needed to onbtain high marks.

    However I would ask hoe do you self teach it?

    I've been wanting to self teach myself FP1,M2 and S2 and just don't know where to start

    I haven't been doing anywhere near as much as that. I've done all of M2 & finished the second half of FP1 though. No where near exam standard, just trying to understand the basics ready for September

    I had something very similar happen with my English Lit AS last year; full marks on the coursework, E in the exam. It wasn't a clerical error; I'm just not naturally good at exam technique. I spent the whole year working on that - actually dumbing down my natural writing style - and resat the exam. I came out with full UMS this time around, so don't lose hope. Just take this as a learning experience, and get a script copy so you can see where you went wrong!

    Definitely isn't common however is your uni course physics?

    Not a good plan - no one likes to be a year behind.
    That's equivalent to A*AA - VERY HIGH
