    This may be a stupid question but what will we actually see on results day on that sheet of paper? The grade we got for each subject, what about coursework grades, percentages, raw or UMS marks?
    Grade subject and what you got in in each individual exam and altogether coursework

    I did a short course GCSE 2 years ago and they show your grade and UMS mark. My friend did Italian and it also showed the coursework grades (speaking and writing)

    So do you guys think the C1 grade boundary will be lower than last years of 50 for A*?? I think C2 was easier than last year, leading me to think that the A* boundary will be around 51-53.

    I got 39/40 (my chem teacher said it was 100UMS)

    I was really annoyed with my biology ISA. First my bio teacher marked it at a C, then got remarked to 48/50, then my teacher pushed it down to 44/50 before sending it off to AQA . (But it doesn't matter though cuz I know I failed biology - I didnt revise for unit 3)
    I got a C (35/50), I redid it and got 43 which was 1 mark off an A* (Biology isa).
    I got 11/60 in B3 mock, but I reckon I did so much better in the current exam I knew most of it.

    Yeah I get how you feel. For Product Design our teacher was ill half of year 10 when we needed her most. But there wasn't any suitable replacement until May/June. Even when she came back, she didn't help with the theory stuff so we had to self-teach the whole spec. With physics, our teacher wasn't very good at helping us understand the concepts so we had to self teach P3

    I hated P3, I loved learning P2 though. I got scissors thrown at me in my Statistics class but I'll still come out with a good grade, the classroom control was just crap for that subject.

    I think C1 could be 48-50, C2 around 52 and C3 44/45 since it's usually somewhat lower than the other two

    The only part of P3 I enjoyed was the pendulum and hydraulics but that didn't even come up

    If I'm correct, if you want a remark, you should discuss it with your subject teacher on the day to see if it's the right thing to do. I believe it costs money and it may not go up. If you are really close to the grade above (especially if it's an entry grade), it's always good to talk to your teacher to see what him/her think about this.

    Thank you for explaining it, I'd always wondered how it all worked. Pointless to think about all that before I have results ahahaha

    Does anyone remember if the last question on P2 was 2 or 3 marks? If it was 3 the answer was 12 m/s2 (which is what I put, you had to workout a resultant force) but if 2 it was 22 m/s2.

    Some unofficial mark schemes have 22, and some have 12 lol

    Yeah I agree with that. Did you find C3 somewhat challenging though?

    Only a little. I remember not knowing an answer to something and making silly mistakes (like the question about reactivity - answer was fluorine according to unofficial mark schemes) but I did some hardcore revision. Oh, I did find the topic on water a bit hard (I usually don't know what the examiner wants when they ask about something on this topic)
