    I got a quite a few A*s but Physics and R.E I got 100% in across all modules.
    Quite proud of chemistry too 100% across all modules except the coursework which was a D so it dragged it down to an A.

    I will forever celebrate 118/120 in the english lang exam that apparently everyone flopped. I was genuinely a C/D grade student, my teacher entered me for foundation the first time, I spoke to the head of department to let me sit the higher paper, went though so much hassle, of course it payed off.

    My A's in Chemistry and English, turns out having a terrifying teacher that screams at you every time you get an answer wrong does help you get things right!

    My A* in history was my best 197/200 with full marks in coursework, source paper and 3 off full marks in my Germany paper.

    My A* in geography is the one I'm most proud of cause frankly I did **** all in Geography and probably didn't deserve a B let alone an A*

    I did OCR Germany with British depth study. However, if Paper 2 is your source paper it is ALL about technique. just learn how to approach the questions. Ask your teacher for how to answer the question styles.
