    Really happy actually, because it went so well :lol: I'm hoping I haven't jinxed it now...

    One question I crossed out twice though :lol:

    And an integration I crossed out and re did. And my initial answer was right
    Crossing out doesn't matter provided they can read it
    After my English GCSE I wrote an apology to the examiner because of the illegibility of my work :lol:

    The amount of times I've written "(sorry!)" in the corner of an exam paper before.

    I always make such daft mistakes.

    Ah, yes, daft mistakes are my specialty.

    I'll misspell a word, so I cross it out. Then, I'll proceed to make the exact same error again, and have to cross that again. And then I do the same thing a third time, feel like facedesking :facepalm2:

    Unless grade boundaries are like 73/75 = 100 UMS

    That'd be funny...

    The logs question would have been quite challenging for some, as well as the GP/AP...

    You may still get full UMS. The OCR one that I sat apparently had 68/72 for full UMS - it depends how everyone else found it.

    Sounds like wishful thinking to me

    No 100s in AS Maths! That sounds kind of sad hopefully you make up for it with straight 100s for A2

    They are for me

    I'd be satisfied with 1,1 :lol: unless I get a higher offer from Cambridge, if I get an offer at all... though I'm not sure if they even give out higher offers like S,1. Plus, even if they did, you'd probably still get in with 1,1!
