    English Lit. Overcomplicated the Of Mice and Men section, and as a result, did not address the question well... or not at all really.

    I feel like I messed up in both, but I calculated my score from unofficial answers and it says I have a score between 129-135..... hopefully that's an A
    Yeah I did the same and i think i got 95 on the non calc and 89-91 on the calc, I just did some quick research and the last 3 maths exams, the grade boundaries for grade A were 139, 131 and 136.. you could get an A depending on how others found the test which will mean if the grade boundaries are high or low.. I hope they are low, are you going to be taking maths A level next year?

    Which of you guys here done Edexcel B geography, Eng. Lit AQA, Physics AQA and Maths Edexcel?
    I did all of the above Geography was a nightmare, the physics questions about static electricity and the cyclist's terminal velocity confused me. I think english and maths went pretty well though...but you can never really tell until results day.

    English literature - I did the wrong question/section/set of poems on the second paper. I'm genuinely expecting this to be my lowest grade at an E or a D. I'm probably just over thinking it though.

    German - I started off getting Cs in mocks, which sharply rose to an A in a couple of weeks through intense revision sessions. Like up to 7 hours a day of pure German revision. It felt as though the exam went bad though mass vocabulary sessions do not work, it's almost impossible to revise the entire subject in a week. Don't try it.

    History - I left revision very late, until the last few days. It didn't help that I hated my teacher, which made me less attentive in lessons. Although, I do like writing essays and I wrote a decent amount. 10ish pages I think.

    Further maths - we didn't finish the course, we were so far from it. There's people who got something like 10/175 marks in mocks. I tried to do lots of revision so it became my second most revised subject, behind German. I hope it paid off and I got an A* overall, but I'm starting to doubt that. I just didn't have the time.

    English Language. I only applied to one college because I knew I was going to get in so I didn't bother applying to any other college. They require me to get a B and I think I really messed up my exam and will probably get the big D. So I'll be left college-less. And then all my dreams of a future will be shattered when I open that death wish of a letter and all I will see is that I didn't get the heavenly B and there will be nothing I could ever do to change that. Even worse would be I was one off a B.

    English Language because I've always been bad at that, C's and D's all year..... but got an A* in mock so I don't know.

    And Maths...always been my strongest subject, A*s all year in mocks, but I'm scared that this would be the one time that I would fail and it scares me because I want to do Maths and Further Maths in A Level, and I'm doing Additional Maths next year so yeah
