    Yes I agree, the essay questions were good. The grade boundaries should hopefully be low, Whatever happens Good luck...
    Yes, good luck to you too! And to everyone else. Everything will work out fine

    If I need to resit things next year, am I allowed to do them through self-study instead of attending lessons?

    is it possible? yes of course - you could do a levels completely through your own teaching

    it's more down to whether or not your school will allow it. it doesn't break any rules though so you shouldn't have to. and they would be wrong to force you

    My school won't let us attend lessons because of the new spec so we have to self-study.
    So yeah, but depends on the center.

    Almost every uni is in clearing!
    I hope I don't get to choose this tool. Also, can you tell me that if my results are coming on 11th (and you said uni will get it on 13th) so will I get my CAS later (i.e. after 18th)?

    Any CIE current or previous student can help me out?

    yeah, hopefully it would suck to have to go into school because i've covered all the content.. it was literally poor performance on the day of my exam (and a certain lack of past papers for a certain physics unit) that are going to let me down :|

    As long as you explain that to them (if resits are even needed), they should have no problem letting you do your own thing and just coming in for exams at the end of the year

    But please go to uni if you have the option :teeth:

    If you meet your offers your CAS should be issued on or around the 18th.

    There's a chance it could come sooner - if you meet your offer ring your firm up ASAP to let them know you know your grades (they can't speak to you about grades/confirmation/CASs etc unless you already have them) and ask when your CAS will be issued. It will depend on the university how many CIE applicants they have and whether the people who issue CASs are the same people dealing with the A level results from all their other applicants.

    I agree with you so much! I felt so confident after doing every past paper for both BY4 and BY5 and was getting the required grades. The only things I did like about both papers though, were the essay questions. They were a godsend. I just hope the grade boundaries will be low.

    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
    I know right thats me in every exam
