    It means they expect to.
    Would this apply to courses that are going to be in Adjustment as well?

    Aqa psych. Decent papers tbh, expecting an A wbu?
    Pretty much the same the papers were alright but the loopa predictions literally ruined a 24 marker in each paper for me. For Unit 3 the aggression one was completely wrong like the guy said it is the least likely to come up and in unit 4 the that schizophrenia was a repeat of last year so i never bothered to look at it too much. Hopefully my other essays helped boost my grade as i thought they went quite well.

    For me the papers were okay just that loopa screwed me over but apart from that it was all good lol.
    Expecting an A hopefully.

    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
    Exactly dude i can't believe his predictions screwed most of us over :/
    Hopefully they are lower lol at least i'll have a better chance at a better grade that way lol

    The sheer volume of people relying on the loopa predictions means the boundaries should drop a bit considering messing up 1 question in psya3 can mean a grade or even two grades dropped so a lot of people will end up doing worse then they had hoped for . But bare in mind that AQA are very very aware of the use of model answers and in the examiner reports from last year the use of model answers is mentioned throughout to the point at which examiners are advised to check if a candidates work resembles that of a model answer so people who copied of loopa are unlikely to get their A*'s !
    I'm very pleased at how random the papers were this year meaning people relying on predictions learnt a lesson that you must revise all the content no matter how frequently it's been asked in the past as at the end of the day if it's in the spec then there's no reason why it shouldn't be asked

    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??
    PSYA3 - Bio rhythms, Relationships and Agression
    PSYA4 - Addiction and Schizo

    History - HIS3M (Britain 1906-51)

    Psychology was alright yeah and history was a decent paper for me as well they literally asked us to argue whether we should stay in the EU or not in the 45 marker lol.

    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
    Same dude. Both papers were decent just that they wording of the Congress 45 marker was kinda weird which is the one i did in my unit 4 exam. Hopefully it goes well for the both of us

    Don't stress about it you'll do fine. What course are you looking to apply for just check the telegraph for the unis in clearing for the course but hopefully you won't be looking at those unis on results day

    Applying to maths ; have a few places in mind but haven't visited them apart from one and I'm struggling to decide so I think maybe a gap year would be a good option as j could retake a maths unit to try to get up to an A* at alevel or even do further maths A2 so idk there's options there I guess ; I'll do some more research tho

    Are the clearing lists actually accurate? My course is there so I was thinking there's still space. But then again, it seems like every course is. I feel like the uni just listed everything and wanted people to enquire. Or is that not allowed?

    On the down side, results day is 21 days away.
    On the up side, I get to see my parents for the first time since Christmas in 20 days.

    However, they're gonna be there when the results get emailed to me, and IDK how I feel about that. Last year, I went to pick up my results by myself, so I had time to absorb them and celebrate with friends before I had to call my family. I guess it'll be nice (if I do well - if I don't, it'll be a nightmare!) to experience it from a different perspective?

    Damn I'd love to have that massive bed but the picture of the 4 people made me laugh like the idea of that many people sleeping on one bed like a whole family LMAO
    Lol, I found it funny too but my mental image was not as clean as yours - no family was involved :L

    Reminds me of the bed from kanye's famous video :P
