Phy4: 77/90 (may get it remarked but not sure yet, ill have a look at the paper)
CHM4: 88/90
Bio: 94/100

i worked out i need 51% in bio next exams (no probs), but i need about 70% in the other two --- bit worried about the PHY6 synoptic so im retaking module 1 to fresh up a bit on it and bring my mark up in it a bit (72/90)

Your all so lucky, i have to now get really high marks to get an A in the summer in two of my subjects, except for English which should be easier. So much more pressure for this summer.
i'm hearing that!
why's everyone on here so uber-clever... *makes a face at pile of revision next to him*

Woo! It's not quite as good as Perdition's but I have just worked out my UMS scores and what's left to get - I can feel the stress just lift away...:marchmell I have been dancing a bit like this.

Well done Perdition, and to everyone else who got their module marks back yesterday!
Congrats! I wish my stress would just lift away; I still haven't started 2 of my courseworks and am feeling hyper-stressed! I know I only need D's and E's, but I don't *want* D's and E's, so the stress remains. Am thinking of having cognitive therapy

I know what you mean. I dont care if i scrap by a mark, as long as i make my offer!
I am getting a bit scared though because everyone is so clever on here- and with such high UMS. What if i DO make my offer and i get there and iam the dumbass of the college

does anyone know about the exam system in detail if so :

Is it possible to get a photocopy of my exam script and see if they have missed any marks, and then get it remarked.

Or do i just have to get it remarked????

(Edexcel)

Many thanks!

O and just to try and calm you guys down (although imp panicking as well) if you’re from a state school they are slightly more likely to let you in if you mess up in June, but do not bank on this! And it is 3 years out of date!

Don't worry noooooni, I'll be the dumbass of King's The SCOTTISH dumbass. Oh god I'll be such an outcast...

In better news, I have to gloat over the fact that my chemistry investigation is finally working so I'll have some results to write up. SUCH a huge weight off my shoulders.

I had a bit of a freakout that beacuae the letter said 'subject to you achieving 3 As in your forthcoming A2 exams' it meant that I had to get As at A2, not just overall. But I am now suitably convinced that it didn't mean that at all. Or at least I bloody hope not. We weren't allowed to do Jan modules, but I think I need Cs now, which sounds attainable...if I could be bothered to start working. But I just can't!

Think how the Scottish people feel, that's basically the case for us!

You'll probably still remember most of your AH stuff when you get to Cambridge though, were as all of us A-level people will have forgotten a lot of the stuff we were taught :p:

I can see it now, I'll be in a maths supervision and won't be able to integrate 1/x

Oh and BTW, I've just noticed the thread has gone past post #1000 !

^^ noticed that too, go us!

I suppose, a lot of AH stuff comes up in the first term apparently so it'll be good in that respect, but still
