    Just a word of friendly caution; unless you got those grades due to adverse things like death then doing A-Levels won't be worth it. If you cannot score on a GCSE exam you won't score on an A2 one, I'm really sorry. A-Levels kill the A* students, just bare that in mind
    good thing im taking 1 a level and two btecs then!

    1 mark off an A in Business Studies.
    1 mark off a B in English Language.

    I was surprised at an A in English Literature. I did really well considering I never read the books. I got full marks on Unit 1 (OMAM & AIC) and beat many people targeted an A - I didn't revise and made up a load of crap. The examiner must have really liked my work, which is pleasing as he/she has to read lots of boring scripts; my essay must have been top notch. However, as I've never read a book, it's safe to say I won't be doing the subject at A-level. HAHAHA TO YOU PEOPLE WHO GOT A B AND WERE PREDICTED AN A/A* ALL YEAR!

    Then there is hope for that A. Assuming that it isn't maths or a science - which should mean that you're okay.

    A little bit disappointed on German. I was 7 UMS off an A* and my teacher said that AQA marked my Writing Assessment harshly, but they are still deciding whether I could get that 7 marks if they pay £50 to remark.

    Surprised on History. I've never gotten B or above in mocks, but I got an A* in the Germany paper. Maybe my teacher is harsh on marking?

    Future ambitions:
    Go to sixth form.
    Already done AS Maths this year, so I will be doing A2 Maths in Year 12, and then A2 Further Maths in Year 13.
    So I will set Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry for both AS and A2, and German only for AS.
    Plus Chinese since it's my mother tongue.

    My target university is Cambridge, which means that I need to work very hard in the following two years. I hope they won't look down on to my 2Bs in English.

    Year 11 (June 2016):
    Maths: A / A
    English Language: A / B
    Spanish: C / D
    Further maths: C / B
    Additional Science: A / A
    Further additional science: A / A
    Geography: A* / B
    BTEC Sport: M2

    Year 10 (June 2015):
    Core Science: A / B
    English Literature: A / B

    Really wish I had done the year 10 exams in year 11 as I really believe I would have done much better but oh well. I'm so impressed with my maths and further maths result (got a U in December). Also really happy with further additional science result (got a D in December). However, I'm absolutely gutted about geography I just don't know what happened, really disappointed and so was my teacher. I didn't have a teacher all year for English language either so I'm pretty pleased with the B. Spanish, kinda expecting it oh well. I'm doing studying Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Geography at sixth form.

    Well done everyone the results on here are amazing! Also quite proud of my school, last year they were one of the worst colleges around with only 27% A*-C's, shocking! But this year massively jumped to 69.9%, record-breaking for the school.

    If I were you, I would because even if you get lower than before, you will still get an A (40 UMS between each grade)

    Yeah that's what I thought, but its quite costly. My school said its £34 for remarking but I think it's per unit, not really sure... Therefore I would need to pay around £100 for b1, p1, c1...

    I was rather frustrated about English Lang + Lit and Sociology because my mocks and work were up to an A* standard, hence why I haven't hesitated to have all of these remarked (I was only one mark off an A* in English Language!). According to my UMS, I lost 24 marks one of my English Lit exams, which baffles me because I had recently achieved an A* in a mock shortly before I sat the exam; also, my analytical skills did not change during the English Lit exams, which leads me to think that some examiners have been marking unfairly.

    Am I embarrassed to request remarks? Not at all because, in an era where fewer examiners are available to mark a greater number of papers, it is all the easier for examiners to make mistakes or view work, particularly in essay-based subjects like Sociology, in a different light to how another person would. Ideally, I don't want to be in a position to need remarks, yet I'm proud of myself - alongside other people in a similar position - to not allow the so-called 'Exam Gods' to wrongly define my abilities!

    As for my other subjects, I'm thrilled with my grades, particularly RE as I had only signed up for the second exam less than three weeks before I sat it (due to my school dropping the subject)! Due to Edexcel increasing the grade boundaries, I just missed out on an A in Maths, yet I don't mind because I'm simply glad to be done with the subject. I still can't get my head around achieving an A in Additional Science, says the girl who fluffed her way through the P2 exam...

    Future ambitions

    Attend my new sixth form - luckily, one of my friends has gotten in (it is a selective grammar school), so I'm relieved to not be starting alone!
    Hopefully survive A-Levels (English Lit, French, Sociology and Media) and live to tell the tale!

    I am a happy man. I thought I would do terrible but it turned out to be the opposite! But that B slightly put me off - I wanted a clean sheet of As and A*s...oh well, I can't complain. It's still a good grade.

    Congratulations to everyone.

    Geography: B (very disappointed, not sure what happened)
    RE: A
    EPQ: A*
    French: A*

    Overall disappointed with my results if I'm honest. I did well on paper but the coursework (which was promised as an A* and wasn't moderated) for 3 subjects dragged me down. I worked so hard and I feel like the school have kind of thrown it in my face with dragging my grades down.

    Don't think Oxbridge is now in the foreseeable future because of these but I'm going off to do chemistry, biology, French and English literature and hoping to become a psychiatrist

    Other Comments: Sending off biology additional for a remark as I was 3UMS from an A* in bio, possibly sending a geography paper for a remark to get an A, and then one of the RE papers was 1UMS from an A so perhaps it'll average my overall grade as an A*.
    You've done incredibly! You did better than me haha!
