    did really well in this paper suprisingly, since I came out thinking i'd really messed up! 119 UMS 5 UMS away from an A altogether, but my ISA D grade did kill it a bit.

    I'm sure you did fine Hardly anyone did well in Biology in my school, my B was one of the few pass grades, so it's like my own personal victory against bad teachers :cool:

    you didnt get 110 marks you got 110 ums, if you check on the aqa ums converter

    http://web.aqa.org.uk/UMS/index.php

    112 ums is for an A (61 raw marks) and you got 110 ums which is 60 marks........................... ... dun dun DUN !!! you were one mark off an A, well done still !! what was you overall grade ??

    i got a C so im gonna retake biol1, i need 14 ums to get a B overall for AS then i plan on doing really well for biol4 and biol5

    Do you guys think I should remark my Biology papers, I was 4 UMS of a B which is like 2 marks, i just want to be predicted an A and I have a feeling my teachers wont because I got a C.

    In Biol 1 i got 72/100 B
    In Biol 2 I got 92/140 C
    in Biol3X I got 42/60 B

    Worth a remark, I got nothing to lose right?

    i got 54 / 100 for biol1 ( i dont understand how because my answers were precisely to the mark scheme as AQA tend to have loads of questions repeating themselves every year) and yet i got 100/140 for biol2, it doesnt make sense at all.

    my coursework was fourty something, cant remember from the top of my head but im gonna request the original marking script to see where i lost the marks, then use that as revision for the summer where i will be boosting my ums in biol1 to secure a B

    i want an A in maths, A in chemistry and B in biology

    AAB for pharmacy =)

    what course do you wanna do?

    In all honesty I want to do medicine and I am not prepared to give up until the very end were by if i get AAB and not AAA then I am officially screwed and I will do Optometry I hope! and then use that degree to get back into medicine! if not then at least I can fall back on a good career being an optician and which I would enjoy. I like patient contact

    On another note I feel the same as you this time in addition to revising the actual material and knowledge I also revised mark schemes and remembered standard answers for example, "how should the control group be treated?" The control group should be treated exactly the same as the experimental group and undergo the same conditions other then being given X (1 mark) and instead should be given a placebo where as the experimental group should be given.... X (and not the placebo) (1 mark). That's a standard answer yet again I have no F*cking clue were I went wrong!!!
