    Hopefully


    The grade boundaries next year for June 2014 I thinks going to be the lowest because so many people will be taking the exam at the same time.

    Yeah I don't know if the grade boundaries will help me to make a prediction but the mark schemes will.

    We'll find out tomorrow whether or not this is accurate. Edexcel have always released boundaries a day before results in the past but that is not any guarantee that they will change that policy.

    CIE results are already out for AS/A levels, but I can't find a boundary spreadsheet anywhere on their website. It's not under the statistics page

    Edexcel mark schemes were leaked, just search them on Google. For the others, none will come out publicly for about a year, but you'll be able to find leaked mark schemes about a week after results day

    History and Economics - thankfully those are slightly more secure.
    How about you?
    History, French and Classics.

    Agree with the History - you can come out and think, as long as I've done X, Y and Z in my essay, then there isn't a reason why it won't get a certain mark. (I'm still worried though!)

    French is sort of the same; as long as you prepare and do practice, you'll be fine. The essay is very much like History in that you have to tick off certain boxes to get certain marks. The only thing is that we all generally make a few REALLY STUPID mistakes in the reading and listening sections.

    In retrospect, I wish I hadn't chosen Classics. I should have chosen either Spanish or a science so that I could have kept my options open. Classics is interesting in the sense that it links explicitly with English and History, but that's also part of the reason why it's less enjoyable (because I found that I had very little variety between all my lessons). Although at the same time, my friends who did Chemistry found that they focused less on their English coursework and language orals because of the January exams and the practicals, so I guess it's good that I didn't take on a science!

    They don't teach classics at my school otherwise I'd have been tempted to take it, sounds really interesting.

    What course/uni do you hope to apply for? I'm waiting to see if I've made my offer for law at Bristol - bricking it.

    Each exam board is different, but it'll likely be some time a fair way after midnight for most. Get some sleep and most will probably be available when you wake up.

    We don't know, but going by previous releases:
    Likely midnight for OCR, early morning for AQA. Word was Edexcel release at midnight as well, but according to their twitter feed they release at 00:01 on Thursday

    "Apparently" from what I've heard OCR and AQA release their grade boundaries at midnight so 12am Wednesday, but they're usually accessible from 8am onwards anyway, so it's worth getting sleep

    English. Not sure where though - I'll choose five universities depending on what I get x
