    I did well in my A-levels. I prove one of my predicted grades wrong, and the other predicted grade was right when I collected my results!

    i got a friend who got DDE for AS, can he still get an offers from any uni....?? i feel sorry for him

    There are resits in January. That's probably his best bet. I'm not sure if unis will take him with those scores.

    Argh, feel like I want to kick the wall, molest small animals, and go out to get pissed at the same time. Results were good, but I was only a mark off an A in History, and 2 marks off in English Lit. Can't believe I got Cs in two exams, where all the others were As! Yay for resits.

    But yeh, they were good results - so I'm not gonna complain. Much. Hope everyone else is happy with what they have! :p:

    I'm so relieved. I needed BBB. Opened the results slowly and saw:

    B Computing


    B Maths


    C!!!!! Physics!!!

    So I was panicking like mad, came straight home, and there on the doormat was a letter of acceptance for Computer Science at Reading. I went absolutely awohl. Screw all the Straight-A noobs, I got to where I want to go and that's all that counts

    For my Music AS i got:

    Paper 1 (performance): 88/90 [A]
    Paper 2 (composition): 55/90 [C]
    Paper 3 (listening): 98/120 [A]

    I'm a bit peeved at the C in composition, it was also a very low C (54/90 is a C), however I still got an A overall for music, but its a low A (241/300, and an A is 240!) Do you think I should resit the composition paper? I don't want to get it remarked because it might go down to a D, but to be honest I am suite surprised that I got such a low mark as music is one of my best subjects and my teacher said that my composition was very good and worthy of an A. I'm still trying to work out what went wrong but what do you suggest I do in the meantime? Resit? I'm carrying music onto A2 but seeing as I got such a low A at AS and the A2 year is apparantly harder im worried i might go down to a B!

    I'm annoyed at 2 things: 1) that I was 3 marks off an A in English and 2) that I got 50/90 (D) for history Unit 2, and the weird thing is that I actually felt really good about that exam! No-one got an A for history and everyone did worse than expected on that paper, so I'll probably ask to see my script and then either resit it in January or get it remarked depending on what my teachers say. Overall I'm happy though- AABB!

    Your teachers should be able to arrange it. They can ask to see your paper first so they know whether you really did screw up or whether it was dodgy marking, and if it's the latter, they can then ask for a remark.

    I am so happy today - AABBB but I got into Cardiff for psychology anyway without 3 As. That's all that matters.
    Psychology - A. I got 100% in my retake of Clinical and Criminal!!!!!!!
    German - A . i got a C (???????) in listening, reading and writing which is crazy - German used to be my best subject!
    French - B My teachers thought I'd do rubbish coz it was my 4th A level and so I put no effort in but i got a B! Stuff the teachers! But crazily i did better in French unit 6 than German - how did that happen?
    Chemistry - B but that's fine. I improved my retake up to an A so i'm happy
    General Studies - B I thought I'd done better but hey it's only G.Studies!

    I'm crying while listening to R Kelly - The World's greatest. that's how I feel today.

    I hope you're all happy too and big hugs to anyone who isn't.

    Right ok, I'll find my teacher next thursday... I'm sure there's something strange going on with my Speaking exam. I revised & rehearshed it to perfection for like 3 months; yet somehow got a lower mark than the paper I guessed in. Hmm.

    I missed a C grade by 5 marks in Sociology and am kicking myself..But lets think it doesn't matter now. We did the best we could and got into university which was the main aim out of all this- well for me anyway!
