    You'll be more than fine! You just have to work a bit harder in year 13, at my college our predicted grade was pretty much either our AS grade or 1 higher. It's rare (according to my teachers) to get more than 1 grade higher than your AS grade. Anyway, you'll be fine just work hard!
    Ok thank you very much and I didn't put in my full effort really, like you said I will just have to try harder next year

    I mean where does it go?
    I think I get it now, so for further maths as long as you have 3 A2 modules with a 90+ average, you get the A*?
    Yes, but you still need to average 80 over 6 modules. FP3 stays in the FMaths A-Level, just isn't counted for the A* three.

    I'm not entirely sure but I dont think that the marks would really differ if its the same subject. That's great!! xD I find that when I think I've done really badly, I do brilliantly too.
    Yeah I just went on the WJEC site though and it confused me with the boundaries I'll give you the link and see what you think haha that rhymed!

    Is anyone else getting anything remarked? I got into uni, but I'm still disappointed with my results. I got a D overall in psychology, but for the units I got C, C , C, D and the D was one mark off a C getting the D paper remarked.

    That seems mad. I got D B C E and ended with a C overall.

    Maths with Statistics. I got all Bs in Core 1, Core 2 and S1. I only did general studies because it is compulsory in AS for me, I'm not doing it next year! Aiming for an A in Maths and Bio and a B in chemistry



    Wow, well done on your results! What are you going to study? Yeah, I worked really hard this year but I think i need to come up with a more effective method...



    Hmm yeah I understand. It's just chemistry which is REALLY holding me back and it's super important for biomedical science so I'm going to have to do something pretty amazing to get a B or an A. I'm hoping to drop Physics, leaving Biology, Chemistry and Maths



    Yeah I'm not thinking of doing general studies next year, it was compulsory for me this year but I'm not doing it next year. I need to decide which units to resit though, as some have more weighting than others for the overall grade.

    Thanks for the replies everyone

    I'm sure you'll be fine, something just clicked for me at A2.

    I need some advise. I really did badly at my AS results today. I got c in further maths, c in biology, D in chemistry, and d in physics.
    Ive alwaysss wanted to do medicine, It's acctually my life. I would do anything to get into medicine, but right now, cause of these grades, im really not sure im gonna make it. Im considering retaking everything while continuing biology and chemistry at A2. But I would have to submit my AS results to ucas, which im scared about, as im pretty sure, they wont accept these grades... what do i do? i really need help

    The UMS grade boundaries are the same as the AQA UMS grade boundaries for Sociology but the raw mark which is all of the marks added up from your paper are a little different, I think. Yes, it is lol xP

    A lot of AS students asking questions like they got C can they get B at A2 etc. The answer is yes of course you can. It's going to be hard work including resits on top if your A2 exams plus even more tougher after January's exams have been scrapped. If you put in the work you can turn around poor AS results

    do grade boundaries actually make a difference to the results we get? cause a 60% will always be a C and a 70% will always be a B!

    Yes you can; but it'll require you to resit the papers, and will mean a lot more work. It certainly is doable if you knuckle down and work hard throughout the year
