    SCLY4 is scarying me

    SCLY3 went okay but I know for 4 I messed up big time with the state crime 21 marker
    Pretty sure I will get max 5 marks and if I'm lucky 10 marks.
    Argh

    I know how you feel with SCLY4. Due to mitigating circumstances this year my sociology grade is going to be lower than a D. My SCLY 1&2 resits were a disaster as it was a only 2 days after I had major surgery, I didn't revise for months as I was in hospital for 4 weeks prior to it etc.

    SCLY3 for me went amazing, my predictions for the 33&9 marker were spot on so I just smashed the question ahah.

    SCLY4, like you, was a complete disaster. My teacher, who is a really poor teacher and has been on review at my college for her teaching completely refused to give me the material for SCLY4 whilst I was off and said 'it's my fault I had surgery so I shouldn't have surgery' and I went into the exam with no material and so I wrote nothing. ..absolutely nothing.

    ( I'm sure it went better for you ahaha. Good luck though

    Whats done is done now and nothing can be changed, you tried your hardest and whatever happens you know deep down you did everything you can.

    I will say this... I was in your position last year, I held a firm offer from Cardiff for medicine but absolutely messed up f324 chemistry, I 100% thought I wasnt going to make my offer, I had clearing numbers in my phone and knew what other courses I would apply for etc. But on results day I got my grades and got my firm offer, one exam doesnt dictate everything and providing you worked hard you can pull it through. Stay strong nothing is final until you hear from the uni!
    well done on getting onto that course: ) : ) : ) ) I sat that F324 paper as well haha, and then had the Physics equivalent the next day. Did really good in the chem but really bad in the phys

    I did so terribly in that paper and only came out with a high C, but thankfully my very high UMS in f325 and my A at AS brought me back into the A boundary and I made it through. I know many who werent so lucky with that exam though...

    But hey ho I made it now and Alevels are in the past! Keep going guys only 18 more days x

    My firm is Liverpool (ABB)and insurance is Lincoln (BBB) for LLB Law at both.

    Though my requirements are quite low I would be so gutted to miss out on Liverpool, even if all my exams went well.

    No idea why I even chose Lincoln, visited it and found it quite nice. Should have chosen Warwick but had a bad experience when I visited it and couldn't see my self studying in such a dull environment.

    Good luck on getting the required grades!! And I think you shouldn't regret choosing Lincoln, at the end you want to go to a university where you'll feel comfortable, at the end university also includes social life

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate the kind words. How are you finding medicine? Is it everything you imagined it to be? I'm worried about fitting in managing a job, socialising, the gym and studying. (But I imagine everyone is in that position )

    Medicine is everything I imagined it to be and more, but experiences really do vary from med school to med school so you may have completely different experiences to me!

    I love the vibe of med school, for me its a place where I feel if I study hard with the support im given I can achieve beyond what i ever thought I would. It really is hard work, you probably get this off everyone but the workload is intense, but providing you hit the ground running and study hard you will be fine. I personally could never fit in more than an 8 hour per week job around studying medicine, and even with that I would struggle to do all the extra curriculars I wanted, have a social life and still get the grades I wanted. You will find the balance for you but there has to be some give and take 100%.

    You will love it, if you need any advice or help about med school in the coming months feel free to PM me x

    If it helps you feel better, here's an image of a marked script a friend ordered back from Edexcel:

    Thank you! I'm definitely looking forward to it even if it's a tad daunting. I suppose you have to work out whats best for yourself in terms of work/social life balance. I appreciate you leaving your PM open for any questions!

    My French paper was so messy. I crossed out tons of stuff out, wrote in circles to avoid the crossed out part, wrote really small underneath the dotted lines and put *s to add bits in which I wrote right at the bottom of the page in the blank space. And to add to that my rs look like ns and my ts look like rs. Hopefully it'll turn out okay. I really do. I don't know how they mark work like mine hopefully they don't just ignore it because they deem it illegible. It's been marked now so worrying won't change it I guess. I feel sorry for the examined marking mine XD

    What are the chances that answers written on extra paper get lost and so do not get marked? I wrote on a lot of extra paper
