    Feeling a little confused and would appreciate some advice...I got a B in English AS (predicted an A) because I got an A in the coursework and a D in the exam, is it worth getting the exam re-marked?
    Well I'd normally say retake it to bump up your overall UMS (handy for next year) but it depends on whether you can deal with doing it next summer at the same time as A2's.

    Why don't you get a photocopy of the script, and then use that to decide (via your teachers) whether it deserved a higher mark. If so, remark.

    So pissed off :cry2:

    Worst thing is I was expecting a good C3... And a **** C4, but C3...
    Ahh. I'm only in Y10 and so only did C1 and C2- I don't find out until GCSE results next week but I think I got 99 and between 91 and 94 respectively. 83's not bad- it's an A! Can't you get an A* with an average of 90 across all three of your A2 or just in C3/C4? Reallyy not looking forward to next summer when due to Mr Gove I'll have M1 C3 C4 and M2 to do haha. Get your History re-marked. Are you Year 13?

    D-Chemistry.

    Anyone think I could get ABB at the end of next year? Also looking to do Biomedical science, possible?

    I got ABBU last year, just picked up my A2 results and I have A*AB so I don't see why not. It took a lot of work at A2 though.

    How far is the B into the boundary? Hopefully it isn't, but if the D is marked down, this could bring the B into a C.

    I'm not taking it to A2 so I don't know whether a retake would be worth the extra work but thanks, I'll talk to my teachers and see what they say.

    Was your firm Warwick? If so have you received a definite no from them?

    I didn't meet the entry requirements for Warwick and they haven't decided whether they're going to offer me a place or not, not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

    Lots of people feel a bit down about things like that; it's definitely not stupid! You worked hard, so I can understand how you feel a bit disappointed - you don't feel like your results reflect that! But I think your results are still fantastic, and hey. You're at uni! This time next year your A level grades won't matter any more.
    Thanks xx

    Universities may not speak to you if you don't have a clearing number I'm afraid. You can try though, but it may be pointless.

    Why don't you take up the offer for the foundation year?

    No, if you were stupid you wouldn't have been accepted, your university obviously wants you to go! Only feel disappointed if you know you didn't try your best, if you did then well done Don't be scared to tell your parents either.

    I got a big fat no from them on the 12th it seems, oh well its not the end of the world And I'd take it as a good thing as you still have a chance
