    Try Tweeting again? They're probably getting loads of mentions today so maybe it got lost under other people's tweets.
    I have just done so. Yeah, they're probably getting bombarded with spam and hate, it always happens.

    And a day remains...

    OCR have screwed me over with every subject I'm taking with them (RE and Geography), but at least AQA were a little more kind with English. Edexcel...yeah no way in hell am I getting an A* in Chemistry now. :lol:

    Do people count BTECs in their GCSE count? Like on CVs and stuff.

    List it separately on your CV. Although you could make a simple amendment to include it in the same section by using "GCSE and equivalents" on it.

    Because I just realised I have a science BTEC from Year 9 worth A*A* apparently so yeah I'll just put 'GCSE or equivalent'.

    If I were you, I'd count up the amount of grades you have, find the lowest grade you get and add something like "(-Number of grades-) A*-(-lowest grade-)s at GCSE and equivalent.

    So someone with 11 grades and the lowest of B would have "11 A*-Bs at GCSE and equivalent."

    Mines 1.5 sides so I might list it out. I have BTEC Sport at Merit grade because I simply couldn't be bothered to do the rest so it will be 2B's actually

    On a CV it is not illegal to omit data right?

    Eg I want to write 15 A*-A grades instead of 16 A*-C if that makes sense

    But that could suggest 1A*, 1A and 9B grades.

    It's definitely illegal to falsify/lie (say you have 15 A*s when you really only have 5 Cs), but I think you can miss stuff off?

    The grade boundaries for me look pretty good. Other than Electronics, which this year has jumped up to 96 for an A* rather than like, 83 last year (out of 120...)
