    I agree as she didn't expect to go on to the group chat to see people leaking questions !! And yes it is true that if you've sat an exam earlier then you're meant to be supervised at all times till everyone else has done the exam so how this person managed to get their phone out and leak the questions idk , and also why would you want to give others an advantage as it won't help you out at all
    Exactly! This girl was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, if she used the questions leak to her advantage (which is impossible to tell) she should be penalised to some extent (maybe -20% off her final mark in that paper) but to give her a U grade is ridiculous IMO

    Are you AS or A2?

    A2.

    What subjects are you taking?

    Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.

    To which university are you hoping to go?

    Depends on the 18th. :lol:

    To study which subject?

    Probably engineering (or hair and beauty if things don't work out).

    If applicable, what were your AS grades?

    AAAAA

    What grades are required for your desired degree?

    A*A*A for most places, innit?

    What grades are you predicted?

    A*A*AA

    How did your exams go?

    Maths exams were decent. Physics was okay.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: chemistry exams.

    How are you feeling about results day?

    I'm actually really curious to see what I got; ngl, looking forward to it. Probably got A*s in M and FM if I'm not overestimating, but I'm really hoping I got an A* in Physics somehow. -fingers crossed-
    How come you're doing A2 and haven't decided which Uni you're going to? Are you taking a gap year? And no, it isn't A*A*A for most places

    They said on another thread that they're going on a gap year and will be applying for 2017 entry. They were probably joking when they said that A*A*A is required for most places, but they said that's their aim on the other thread.

    Yh it's a funny old system ; wish everything was online and everyone could access it all at the same time lol cause when you walk in on results day your teachers know your grades but you can't ever tell whether they're pleased or not really
    Yeahh I wish as well!!

    I was actually gonna go to uni this year in Canada, but due circumstances, I'm having to take a gap year. A lot depends on results day now that I'll be applying with achieved grades.

    What I meant was standard offers are around AAA-A*A*A for my course, so I'll be in a good position as long I achieve A*A*A.

    Have you sat exams this time?

    Yh it does seem a bit suscpuous as I dunno why someone would join a what's app group with all these random people unless they were to gain something from it so maybe the person who leaked the papers told the others that this was the plan and now the girl is acting as if she was none the wiser ; she should've been revising anyway instead of being on what's app on the day of her exam -_-
    It was a whatsapp group to help people
    I was going to join it but decided not to because I had too much on my mind
    I can see why she joined it and apparently it was really helpful

    She could use it as work experience for her PS for when she applies again during her gap year

    If she plays it right, it could work out haha

    I was thinking the same too. One other thing that doesn't seem right is how only 4 people have been caught out as a result. Where are the other 36? It's a messed up scenario, but it is only fair that AQA assures all other Sociology students that this problem was dealt with correctly. At the end of the day, this will result in increased grade boundaries for the rest of us

    It's 40 people out of thousands who took the exam. This will have no impact on the grade boundaries.

    How can AQA be sure that the leaked questions only reached 40 people??

    Taking 40 as 40. People don't use their common sense sometimes.

    Yeah, I also found SCYL3 and 4 good, just hope this doesn't affect my grade as there's only 4-5 marks between each grade boundaries 🙄
