    That's strange, it must be pretty rare for someone to improve so massively.

    Sorry for the odd question, I was just curious
    I haven't improved massively - I'm not prodigal at Maths by any means. I just like doing it.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get an A* in further maths without using FP3 as a module in further maths? I didn't think this was possible but in my results slip it wouldn't give me a 90% average without using my other 3 A2s.

    Thank you all.



    5 according to an email my teacher received from the Edexcel Emporium; 54 managed it in normal Maths and none in Additional Further as far as I can tell.

    I'll be studying Maths at Cambridge.



    If the Economics is dragging it down but your Maths average is still >90 then I'd say it's worth trying. S1 is an outlier but I've met offer holders who have more important modules such as FP1 as their outlier.
    I was wondering how tough you found Step? I want to go to Warwick for AS I got AAA in Maths, Further maths and Economics however I need to get a grade 2 in Step is that do-able?

    I was on the exam board WJEC though so won't it be different for that? & yeah but even if I resat and got a B part of me still wouldn't be happy unless it was solid cos I really want an A aw well that's still good so well done!!x
    Oh in that case I think it will be. I just assumed you did AQA Sociology as that is the more common option in colleges. Oh okay, I understand where you are coming from... I hope whether you do choose to resit or not that you get that A xD Thanks, but I was really hoping I'd get that A in Sociology, maybe next year I will, hopefully.

    I achieved AAA in maths,bio and pyshology. But I got B in chemistry 232/300. I'm quite disappointed that I didn't get an A, so I'm thinking of sending chem2 for a remark as I am 8 ums of an A. Do you guys think its worth it?
    Thank you in advance

    It's possible. I got mid seventies in my FP3, the 90+ average came from M2, FP2 and S2.

    I'm really struggling to understand what happens with my as results now, I got BCCC this year for AS, of course I'm dropping one so I'll get some points for that, but what happens now? I know I've got into next year but will it mean I need go retake to get an A next year? Or does it just mean I've passed and ill start from scratch at A2?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Your asking two different questions:

    1. Does it mean I need go retake to get an A next year?

    This depends on your individual marks for each subject. If you've got a low C, then it'll be more difficult to get an A overall in that particular subject as you'll need to work harder at A2 to get an A overall for that subject. Depending on your school/college, they may let you retake your AS modules whilst you're doing your A2s - but that will add to your workload and pressure.

    2. does it just mean I've passed and ill start from scratch at A2?

    You've passed, but you won't start from scratch at A2.
    AS (first year) + A2 (second year) = A-Level. That's why if you didn't do too well in your first year (AS), then it'll make it more difficult or adds more pressure for you to do well in your second year (A2).

    That seems harsh, do you have any external circumstances you can use to stay in sixth form and restart year 12? Do you want to do AS levels again or try something else? Or you can start at a different sixth form college and do A-levels there, are there any nearby you can apply to with your GCSE grades and just explain that you failed but want to give it another go?
    I can't even think straight. It's such an emotional day for me. I don't know where to start. All the colleges and other sixthforms are closed so I'll have to call on GCSE results day, they'll be open then. Its just the fact of whether they do the same exam boards as the AS's ive already got. Thanks for your advice, I really appreciate it by the way.

    Oh so I was still 2 marks off even though my exam board wasn't aqa? I thought it depended on the exam board? Oh well I can ask my teacher tomorrow! Welcome, yeah I'll just work really hard x
    Plus on unit 1 I was 2 marks off an A when I thought I'd done awful, that time when I thought it was okay I got c so wasn't that brill

    How did you do? I'll get over it, hopefully next week will cheer me up :lol:

    I haven't been happy about results since Year Ten January... :lol:
    I got ok grades, I passed but I could have done way better. At least I don't have to put up with a subject I hate anymore so I'm really gonna try from September

    How come? Did you start AS in year 10? Plus, you have like 2 years to retake what you feel you didn't do so well in so don't worry

    Law - D (oops)
    Philosophy - C
    Sociology - A

    I'm really happy with sociology as I wasn't expecting a single A, and I'm shocked that I performed better in philosophy than law tbh.

    Only carrying sociology on next year though (taking up 3 new AS Levels) so all good

    STEP is much, much harder than A Levels - try some and you'll see. However AA in Maths/Further should be enough to have a go and see where you go from there. I don't know how doable it is because I have no clue how good you are but it doesn't sound like a bad idea.

    Have I been misinterpreting the phrase "prodigal son" all these years? I always thought it was referring to someone as a prodigy.
