    For my Electronics AS I thought that I had not even answered enough questions to get an E (anyone here last summer will confirm this) but I ended up with an A!!! Still not sure how this happened :confused:

    Yeah I get that sometimes, I thought I messed up my physics test but it turns out I was the only person in my school to get an A* in it, which was quite a shock. :confused:

    Does this actually happen, or are people just too modest when talking about how well they thought they did after an exam?

    Yup, although if you go on it now it says "not available until midnight."

    I'm told it will work at 12:01 on the *dot*. But seriously, you know how slow our network gets when the library fills up, god knows how that thing will cope when 2000 people hit enter at 12:01 exactly. Either way I'm gonna stay up and perservere.

    I can't find that 'not available until midnight' message. Which hyperlink did you click on? I'm currently logged in, and can't find that message.

    I dont trust the exam boards, whether you get a 'good' grade or a 'bad' grade its down to random luck, i dont believe i should have got A when i have or U! when i have, its a joke

    well, I got EXACTLY what I thought.
    An A on my AS psychology!
    I got 86%, 94% and 100% on the 3 modules.
    I worked my arse off, I read the entire text book, I answered every single past paper I could get my hands on, and I wrote 30 sides of A4 in the 3 1hr exams.
    I deserved that A.
    I am so happy.

    I think if you work hard enough for something, then you do do well.
    And I think that a lot of people don't have their heads screwed on during exams so they can't remember a lot about what they actually wrote after.

    hi
    I kind of had the same situation as you about three months ago. It was during our mock exams and the last exam I had was PE theory Exams. I hadn't revise so I thought I would come up with a D or C but infact I got an A
