A* So very very happy right now.

Calcium, I know, it's a great word! Should really thank Benoit, he taught me it, but I don't know where he lives :p:

I still can't believe I got an A* in this. In the writing exam, one of my sentences translated as "I knew with the principal to discuss environmental issues". How I mixed up the words recontre and connu I'll never know :rolleyes:

I found parts of the listening exam quite hard and had to guess a few. I got an A overall though so I must have guessed most of them right :p:

Wow, well done guys on getting all of these amazing A and A* grades! It's truly shocking after this year's papers getting an A or an A* isn't it? I was over the moon when I got my A*, and was eclectic when I opened my second envelope, with an AQA Top 5 letter in it Well done everybody!

Were you thinking about multiple lines of approach to a forthcoming situation, or were you ecstatic, and extremely happy about your results?! :p:

Isn't 'eclectic' a word? My German teacher always says it and so I've kind of adopted that word from her:confused:

It is indeed, and means to consider all the theories/possibilites of a situation, hence my previous post :p: I'm not sure if you were eclectic, but you were certainly ecstatic I bet

Helloo! May I join the Top 5 French club? Although my teacher opened my envelope and then gave it to me, which I find quite rude! Not that I particularly cared at that moment Just very surprised!!

Well done Human Being, my teacher opened mine aswell Although it doesn't help when the envelope just said "High Scoring Candidate" but had no reference to the said achiever. How many Top 5s in French have we racked up between us all now?! :p:

Mine had my name on . It's very funny, I don't think my parents have yet realised that it isn't just 5 people in the whole country who get it. Bless them. I don't plan on telling them any time soon either.. .

So, let me get this straight. The Top 5 awards are given to those students who get the top 5 marks, so for example there could be 4 people who, in AQA French Spec A who got 360, whereas there may be 200 people who got 359 UMS marks, and since there is no way of just choosing 1 out of that 200, they all get it? Is that right?:confused:

Providing some people get 360, the top five marks are 356-360. Anyone who receives any of those marks receives a top five letter. If the top mark is 357, the top five marks are 353, 354, 355, 356, 357.

It's not the five people who get the best marks, it's the top five marks. So there could be thirty people who get the top five marks, or there could conceivably be hundreds.

:rofl::p:

Yes, though I think it actually has some small note at the bottom explaining it all (it did on mine, which was for Maths actually). And my parents knew already, damn.

Hehe, My Mum didn't really understand the footnote so I told her that, as far as I knew, It was the top 5 People who achieved the best grade in every subject with AQA, but there could be more than 5 people who tied in 'x' place. However, I'm not going to bother telling her the truth now:p: Even so, I got 360/360, so I'm hardly going to moan about that, am I? :p:
