    I found it really hard too I knew all the vocab apart from a couple of words, but struggled to make sense of quite a few of the sentences! In the first lang paper I don't even remember the luck bit So I must have missed the word somehow I really really want an A in Greek! Do the lang papers count for 50% all together?
    Me too - I'd really love to get an A, but I don't think I will now.... I think you need 80% to get an A (90% for A* and 70% for a B). I think each paper is 25% of the total mark. That means you'd need top marks in the other three papers to even consider getting an A grade, if you felt the 2nd language paper went really badly.

    A*, 398/400, just dropped 2 UMS on the first language paper.

    I got 396/400 in latin (damn literature ) so looks like I made the right decision choosing greek over latin for AS!

    Congratulations you guys, that's amazing! You must be really pleased!

    Just an A for me... but way better than I was expecting! Nearly managed an A*, but lost a few points on 2nd language paper... Ah well, could have been worse!
