    You're not going to be happy about C34.

    weird af. S1 looks decent, can't say much about the others

    How are your other exams looking? Are you getting your results tomorrow?

    I'm quite upset about the C34 and 125/125 thing, to be honest. I really need to stop being so cocky and work harder for June.

    Not very good either. :no: I don't know. :cry:

    By the way, for FP1 - it's 75/75 for full UMS and 68/75 for 90 UMS.

    What's 123-124 getting you? Damn - full UMS in C34 would have looked so nice on paper too!

    Nerves getting to Zain too, I see. Don't worry man, I'm sure you did pretty well. Like you said - it's about meeting the offer, not shiny UMS.

    How did you get to know? That's ****ing steep, wow. I was sure that paper was harder than the boundaries make it out to be.

    Somewhere about 196-198 UMS, oh well. I need to update my predictions:

    C12 - 195/200
    C34 - 192/200
    FP1 - 92/100
    M1 - 94/100
    M2 - 92/100
    M3 - 72/100
    S1 - 100/100
    S2 - 90/100
    Physics 1 - 110/120
    Physics 2 - 110/120
    Physics 3 - 40/60

    Uhm, I found the formula for calculating UMS boundaries by inter polation, the A mark is a 61 and the B mark is a 54, so the 90 UMS mark is 61 + (61-54) = 68 and the full UMS is 75 or over 75 so gets capped to 75.

    Genius, that's actually pretty accurate.

    Still looking like solid scores! A* in Maths with 579 UMS. S2 looks tight - highest IAL boundaries I've ever seen. Was the paper really that easy?

    I would think that too, but it's sometimes not a linear model past a certain grade. Oh well, I guess I'll know tomorrow

    Thanks! It wasn't to me, but I have a certain feeling that people that sit these papers in January tend to be a (even more!) self-selecting bunch that are better than the usual June-people.

    I got that from a friend who's pretty good with examination board stuff. :dontknow:
