    Oh i hope not...

    And i agree! Why couldn't the government have just implemented the new A-levels all at one point, rather than doing it too early in a way which confuses absolutely everyone :/

    The real hard part is getting your leg over the E boundary- from then on its a matter of 4-6 marks to get the grade above! It's just so narrow to slip from an A to a D so easily As long as I'm projected a A/B then all will be good!!!

    At this point, i feel i'd be pleased with a B...

    And wow that sounds bad :lol:
    A B is still a fantastic grade, but life would be ideal if I got an A :3

    Actually you're meant to have both breadth and depth as your mock, teacher should have given both to you by now because it's important, I did awful... Eck
