    Then it is likely they could take the grade of you :/ .... I would advise to speak to your exams officer at your school if you can still call them, if not as soon as you can go back into school!
    That's annoying I'm just hoping that maybe my memory is playing up on me and in actual fact I got 87 in P1 and 85 in P2, which would give me the grade they've stated, but I doubt that's the case.

    Don't worry about the breakdown The 5B's kinda pulls down the A* average What you got planned for the future?

    yeah I know but i'm not that bothered as the percentage doesn't matter to me and Medicine, where I apply though they only see the top ten grades and score those (if they even have to score GCSEs )

    so it's all good

    I wonder... My overall Biology grade is 343 (which by my calculations should actually be 344 and my Chemistry should be 345 - something's definitely going on), which is 20 marks under my Physics grade of 363. In B3, I got 80 UMS marks. In P3, I got 100 UMS. Perhaps they've got mixed up? Because that would actually work then, as I knew before I did B3 that I needed 96 UMS to get an A*, but I needed 102 UMS in Physics, thus making it impossible. So it could, hopefully, be just a school error.

    I'm also wondering about my Music Creative Task. I know I'm being rather picky, but my Music teacher said after I'd done it, "Well done, that should get at least a B, perhaps an A." I got a G - and only just! Right on the boundary. Now, had I got a B or an A, I could easily have had a B or A overall... Don't you think that's a bit odd? I'm not saying the exam board have got something wrong, but I do think my teacher might have done.

    explain it all to your exam officer as what you say could be possible and does explain it all

    yes it's easily possible your teacher did, actually many people the music one happens too I believe its the most risky subject :lol:

    Okay, I'll try and do so. I don't mind if the A* transfers from Physics to Biology, but if I lose out on an A* because they've copied the results incorrectly then I'll be a little annoyed. I know it's petty, but it's just irritating.

    Yeah, the grade boundaries were ridiculous! It's a horrible subject, I wish I'd taken something else like I.T. or even Geography.

    Yeah - funnily enough both of my lowest grades were with OCR (the other being a U in Additional Maths)! They're definitely my most hated exam board, why did they mark everything so harshly?

    Oh my, that's terrible! Someone really needs to sort out these exam boards. See, that's the only good thing Michael Gove proposed with the EBCs: just one exam board for each subject (well, it might have been one exam board with divisions for each subject, but it's the same thing really). AQA and the other exam boards actually seem to judge exams relatively fairly.

    I know one person who got an A* in my Music class, however he does happen to be Grade 8 and has played at the Royal Albert Hall (during the Proms, I think, some sort of special event). He's also part of the school jazz band which, I believe, reached the national finals. To add to that he's also in various other bands and Grade 7 (I think) on Piano. But my problem is, you shouldn't have to be at that level to get a good GCSE - that's A-Level, if not degree calibre! Of course he definitely deserves that grade, but it seems odd that I and many others in my class have got Grade 4 and above in an instrument of some shape or form and only ended up with Cs.
