    I thought you only got an A* grade at A2 level?
    Yh that's correct, i meant that no-one i know has achieved more than 2A's whereas in previous years i encountered lots of students with about 3 or 4A's Im sure there are people this year to, but i know of very few- which is freaking me out for the year ahead:eek:

    The same happened at mine. We're a small sixth form, so many people got kicked out today. I'm actually in shock, I'm pretty happy with my results but upset that people are leaving.

    I got AAC, I was hoping for AAB but didn't do brilliantly in Economics. Interestingly, I got the exact same UMS in both papers. I was predicted an A/B so it's pretty disappointing, but I'll be resitting both next year anyway as we're made to if we don't get A grades.
    Strange enough I got the same UMS in both paper of my economics exam as well lol but I got Ds (59/100 in both) and the thing is I was really confident about unit 1 and was sure about a C in unit 2 as well..gonna get them remarked and hope for a change (at least a C)

    I think the grade boundaries were what I expected them to be, but in my school we didn't have Jan exams this year for AS (even though we could have) so really it was everyone's first time sitting AS exams.

    But then again I'm not sure if uni's look at that, I was hoping for 2 A's for Psychology and Sociology but got C and B instead although I got an A for the 60%(159) unit of Sociology and a B(58) for the 40% but still got a B over all so I don't know how far off I was but it must have been close.

    Same for Politics got a U for the first unit and an A(100) for the second unit, I was quite ill for unit 1 so i was expecting that, so C overall but I don't see how uni's will know this or if they'll care... Despite all this failure I still think grade boundaries weren't the problem for me but just the 8 main exams pack into such a short time

    For sociology I've been consistently on an A this entire year. I got an A in the January module, but turns out I got a B overall. It was just on the B/C boundary too, which means I must've been on a C for the second paper.
    And don't even get me started on English...

    i was told by my teachers that my english lit coursework was a low A and ended up with a mid C and all year i was getting high As in the exam but ended up with a mid B. i also know many people who ended up with Us and Es in lit too
    I think OCR have ****ed up English this year. Last years grade boundaries for coursework were a bit lower so why has it suddenly changed now? I have a feeling a lot of other people have failed English too, everyone was baffled by the exam questions.

    I got ABBD (Law, RS, Business & History). I feel like the HY2 (WJEC) was marked really harshly, I got Bs in all my mocks for it, but ended up with a U in that unit, and I know other people who are in the same/similar positions with this exam. Fair to say I'm gutted.

    I got CCCD (maths, biology, geography and chemistry) , I'm so disappointed as I wanted to do Vet Med but I know I don't have a chance now as my grades are so bad. I have been doing work experience for three years and now feel like it has been a massive waste of time, I have thought about doing biomedical science or something similar but most universities are asking for AAB-ABB and I doubt my school will predict me the grades that i need, anybody got any advice or suggestions on any other courses or careers i could look into????

    Ill advice you to retake y 12 if and only if this is your life passion and youre willing to sacrifice a year then you should. Jan resitsare not allowed so the intensity might be too much. Look at it this way you could carry on and this would affect chance of getting good uni and eventually getting a good job. Or sacrifice a year and carry on get good grade and better prospects of good job.

    24 people in my 6th form have been kicked out today, and they are just normal students who actually worked really hard. I worked for months and months, and still only achieved BBBC, which isn't my best and it has altered my career plans greatly to the point where i'm about to give up.

    Any else finding this year really tough? I honestly feel like i've failed myself, my family and even my school.

    hey it's not all about school. Some of the people with the average grades from my old school became bankers and are earning loads of money. I got 4A's at AS and A-level and i'm an unemployed bum! Just do your best and enjoy life and be happy. Good luck with A2's

    They can either retake the year if there is anymore spaces due to a new batch of year 11s coming or they have to go to another college which would be sad, i have known them since year 8 :/
    Awww dw, im sure it'll all work out for u Will they most likely be retaking?

    Same I was hoping at least a B if worse comes to worse in Psychology but ended up with a C. Don't really know where i really went wrong

    C2 you dropped 2 marks and FP1 perhaps it was that matrix proof question where you had to do it in a specific way? If you did it the numerical way you lost all marks

    especially FP1 for OCR their grade boundaries are usually high,im guessing its because theres so many people who are good at maths that took further maths,anyway you needed 64/72 to get an A thats 88%!
    I got a UMS mark of 85 for FP1 and got an A, I felt it was a harder paper than usual, so FP1 seems as if it's lower than usual. S1 was an absolute b*tch and I only got a very high C (seeing that Maths is my strongest subject).
