    Did you take the exams in A2 maths then? And super sweet, although I doubt the interview will be anywhere near as intense as Oxford!!
    Yup. My A2 Maths is more or less sorted. And yeah, the Oxford interview would be much harder, but I can use this as practice to get my words in the right order.

    I got 1 A* 10As and 1 B at GCSE , AABB at AS in Maths Geog Economics Physics, with an A2 module completed in geog early at 100%, so I've been predicted A*A*A (dropped physics)

    What about you?
    Why is geog a level so easy? everyone i know who does it say its **** aha.

    Haha it's not that easy, it jus depends where your strengths are. At AS, the grade boundaries are really low, partly because a lot of people don't do well due to the level marking system, and because of the fact that its a pretty new syllabus.. The boundaries in A2 are higher though, presumably because the people that mess up most often drop it, even though the level marking affects your result even more in A2! If you have a really good essay writing technique and bare in mind the level marking nature, and can remember a load of case studies in detail, then you'll definately be fine!

    I'm glad though that I did well in the three exams so far, now I just need a low D to get an A overall (aiming for an A* though of course )

    Yay, someone else for English and Spanish Where else are you applying?

    (Haha, woops, just realised Paparazzi just said this to you too )
    Hey,
    Can I just ask your predicted grades and AS grades?

    I am worried Nottingham will reject me for English & Hispanics, I got BBBC for AS (English lang/history/spanish/biology) and am predicted AAB (dropped biology) with an A in extended project for AS.

    Cheers, can PM me if you prefer

    Do universities see all of your AS grades or do they only see your predicted grades and the AS e.g. A*AAb

    Helloooo

    I'm applying for Music, I think Nottingham's probably my second choice after York, but I'm still really hoping to get an offer.
    I just sent my application off on Wednesday, so fingers crossed.

    I assume they'll see all of your AS grades, as you have to put them on ucas as well as your predicted grades...

    My school told me that I didn't have to put my 4 AS grades on UCAS, only the one I had banked, so did I do something wrong?

    depends if they where cashed in, i suppose, :confused: which would be confusing cause then you would have 1 AS grade to your name

    well done! how long after you applied did you get the offer? I've applied for Bsc psychology and all i've recived is an ackowledgement :s i'm getting really impatient now lol
    I sent my UCAS off on the 20th of October and got my offer on the 19th of November. I know the wait is sooo frustrating. But I've someone on here who applied just a few days after me for EXACTLY the same course and they haven't heard back from them. I was quite surprised really because seeing as it's such a popular course at such a popular uni I thought they wouldn't reply till like January. Anyway, don't worry your time will come good luck!

    No you've done the right thing I think. I didn't even put the one I had done at AS and not continued to A2 as my school sorted that bit out for me.
