    Comments:
    Feeling confident about meeting my predicted grades in the sciences (although a little doubtful about physics). Not feeling as great about any other subjects to be honest. Especially not drama, uggggghhhh

    edit: I just remembered how awful edexcel english lit (poetry unit) was, not looking forward to seeing the outcome of that, I hope it doesn't damage my overall grade too much

    RESULTS DAY EDIT: I AM ON CLOUD 9 RIGHT NOW. Didn't expect 8A*s at all, still in shock. So thankful the hard work payed off. And additional maths was expected so I am happy happy happy!!!!!!!

    Comments

    I'm a bit disappointed with only an A in RE after an A* in Unit 1 and in the fact that because I didn't get an A* in Geography I didn't get an A* Baccalaureate.However, overall I'm very pleased with my A* in French and double A* in PE and I did get 11A*s(1A^) and 5As-the highest in the school.
    Taking these A-Levels:
    Further Maths
    Maths
    Physics
    Geography(AS)
    -I'm hoping I can take Economics but it is in the same block as Further Maths.I will be taking Geography unless the College allows me to take Economics on the enrollment day.
