    He re-applied to Cambridge and got a S1 in II, III (any order) and A*A* in Additional Further Maths and Physics offer but he ended up with 1, 1 in II, III and BB in AFM and Physics and still got in.

    Step papers? - probably because 1s are still oustanding....

    However I thought he was pro at physics....

    B overall for AFM so what about FM and maths???

    Yes, obviously. They're not outstanding. An S is outstanding. By definition.

    No, that's as far from the truth as you get.

    A*A*, obviously - but he got that the year before, so wasn't part of his offer.

    Yo, I got A*A*A*A in Maths, FM, physics and Chem respectively with A* in maths 1 year early. I know it's like 8% of people who get an A* for each exam and whatever but am I like the most intelligent for 1 in a 1000 or 1 in 500 if you consider all people both those who do a levels and those who drop out beforehand? I'm not trying to be arrogant, just wandering

    You'll find that 28% of people in the whole of the UK got an A* in maths and further maths who sat it.
    ~8% for physics and ~10 % for chem IIRC.
    You'll also find that the grades aren't independent so you really aren't special.

    I would also add, wouldn't use the word intelligent... able or hardworking or something else, maybe. (Unless we're talking pretty much full UMS across the board, in my view, and even then you have to look further than just the grades)

    hi! I sent off my entire psychology a level (all 4 units) on the 24th as a priority remark. Does this mean I will still get my remark by the 31st since that's 18 days since the 18th? Or will it be later because I didn't send it off on the 18th?

    I got my A2 results the other week. I came out with an A in my politics exam, even though throughout the year I've been getting A*s in all my practice papers. I thought the exams went pretty well, but got a B in my unit 3 and scraped a B in my unit 4. I didn't need an emergency remark because I still got into my firn. But could I still get a remark in it to see if it goes up or because I'm an A2 student is this not allowed?

    What are the grade boundaries? How many extra marks do you need to go up a grade? You cant ask for a remark without your teachers' support. The first thing to do is get you paper back and look at it against the mark scheme with your teacher. The rules on remarks have changed this year. You cant just throw money at it - this disadvantages those who cant afford the remark cost.

    Overall I need 11 UMS to get an A*. The difficult thing is, is that my teacher has left this year to another school, I guess I could speak to another teacher as she taught politics a few years ago. I'll speak to my parents and discuss it. Thanks😊
