    I had my PSYA1 psychology exam yesterday and i'm preeetty sure I effed it up.. really bad. I'm confident about the second unit though.

    So my question is; what are the chances of gettin a C or above if the first unit was basically a total disaster?

    Thanks.

    Well, one needed to get only 52% in last January's (61% in June's) PSYA1 to achieve a C so you stand a good chance. From what I've heard about the exam, it seemed quite a difficult paper for some so the boundaries might be a little lower than this, though it's more likely they'll stay around this figure.

    Depends what you mean by a total disaster, but you can always resit the first one in summer, yeah?
