    I know that AQA grade boundaries are released on the 17th, but is the UMS converter also functional for the June 2016 series from that day, or do we still wait until the 18th?
    Can you not use the grade boundries? Dont mean to sound rude just a genuine question.

    Not being nervous is good I reckon - enough time for that as you get closer to the day! The official title of my degree is Psychology and Speech Pathology - basically a double honours degree of psychology and speech and language therapy - what a mixture eh???
    I wish it was closer haha it's hard to fully enjoy a holiday when you've results day looming over your head. Ooo that sounds quite interesting tho I don't think I'll be able to survive two years of writing essays in A-level psychology hahaha

    AFAIK, grade boundaries don't show the cut-off point for full UMS but other than that you can because of the linear relationship between UMS and raw marks.

    100% UMS is either twice the difference of the A and B grade boundries added to the A boundry or the maximum mark available on the paper, whichever is lower.

    I did AQA psychology and I think the exams went really well so I'm expecting an A and seeing as loopa flopped with his predictions this year I doubt the boundaries will shift that much ; will probably drop down a mark or so if anything

    I did A2 politics (3+4C) and 3 didn't go so great, but I felt better about 4. Don't really know what to expect

    Probably a stupid question but is a 3 quarter length bed smaller than a single? The pictures look bigger but it can't be right?

    I do psychology and history, which topics did you do for each? I'm literally relying on coursework for history... praying to scrap an A somehow! The psychology papers were decent though

    How about you??

    You have my sympathies - I still remember the long wait for results! And yes the course is interesting and uni essays are a whole different ball game to A level ones - though I don't mind essays which is good because I took 4 essay based A levels lol (sociology psychology RS and English lit/language). Try to enjoy the rest of your holiday - have some fun!

    Do you mean a 3/4 quarter size bed rather than a 3/4 length? If so I think that's what they call a queen size bed - bigger than a single but smaller than a double bed

    Yes and I didn't know that!!! Most uni beds are 3 quarter sized and I always assumed that they were small :lol:

    I've already got single sheats for beds because I thought that they were small and my mum said singles would fit... And now I'm realising that they will be too small. I might needs more pillows too.
    I have a feeling a double sheat is the only option.
