    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 am not exam ready yet either. However i have done 2 past papers so far. I achieved in the 70ish percent for both. I self taught via exam solutions haha

    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
    Examsolutions. He teaches it better than any tutor would, and even better if you dont understand rewind and watch again.

    Speak to your school to find out what your predictions will be based on. If your predictions are AAA-AAB then applying to AAA universities should be fine (just make sure you have a range of choices http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...ity-rejections and look on which? university to find out the % of applicants getting offers - anything below 70% is a risky choice even if you have the predicted grades).

    Anyone had their priority remark back yet?

    My college hid all my results again today so I'm assuming it's being processed in their system

    Yep. Politics as, 1 mark off an A- unchanged, Economics 3 marks off an A- Unchanged waiting for German- 1 mark off an A and my guess would be unchanged. The new rules with regards to remarks have made it harder to gain marks with remarks.

    This is so annoying. I'm three marks off an A in both History and Economics and I expect they'll be 'unchanged'. I hate ofqual.

    Yep it is very annoying but at least the economics is reformed so take the whole thing nextyear. I remember you from the economics forum... I fell short on the macro, how about yourself? going to work really hard this year from the beginning.

    Basically they've changed it so unless there's some clear clerical error in marking you can't go up marks ( especially in subjective topics ).. Like English / economics .. I myself have experienced this with remarks coming back

    Like I said in another thread, students are being scammed. It's not a 'remark' it's a 'remoderation'.

    That's so true .. I only needed 2 ****ing marks in my econ4 paper to go up to an A and the ******** only gave me 1... So now I'm 1 fricking mark off an A. And there's nothing I can do about it other than resit
    And it's a pisstake that examiners can see previous examiner marks awarded and therefore input a bias when they mark it :/ ******** system
