    Got an A overall. 88 in unit 3 and 83 in unit 4. I was aiming for an A*, but given that I vomited 8 times during my exam, I think i've done pretty darn well!

    Hope everyone got what they wanted.

    I got an A* overall. :eek: 100 ums in unit 3 and 90 ums in unit 4. I had food poisoning on the day of unit 3 so maybe the special consideration helped me get 100 ums, hahaha. I'm so happy!
    Almost the same UMS as me! I got an A* overall, with 100 UMS in PSYA3 and 83 in PSYA4. I was beyond pleased, especially considering that PSYA4 was a resit from January that I got a D in.

    Me too! As soon as I got my results, my mum asked what I had got, but I told her I was confused and that I must have the wrong results, haha. She was congratulating me and I was just standing there going, "that can't be right." :lol:

    Hahahaha, I know that feel! I was expecting the worst so seeing an A* confused me too. Are you going to university this year or are you on a gap year?

    Oh, me too! I just wanted a B, so an A* was like the best present ever! I am off to Nottingham this year to study Ancient History and Archaeology, what about yourself?

    Well done! I wanted to apply for Medicine last year but I had a lot of trouble finding work experience and voluntary work so I decided to take a gap year instead. It didn't feel right applying when I had such little experience as there's always a chance a course might not be right for you, despite your gut telling you it is. I did manage to get more experience and now I'm 100% sure so I'm applying this September.

    *sigh* I needed just 70 UMS for an A overall, which was what I needed for university. I ended up with 67 UMS for Unit 4, and I've gone for a priority remark. Really hoping I can just squeeze in 3 extra marks, because my place at Bristol depends on this :/ What're my chances? I'm just glad psychology is not objective like Maths...

    Got 2 Ds for the first 2 units, now doing 3 and 4 for june. The highest I can get for this stupid subject is a C without retakes I think :indiff:
    And i'm not retaking because I can't stand this subject, it's too much stress and i revised and got Ds (but then again i think i lacked exam techniques even if i knew the content)
    ANY TIPS PLEASE? FOR THE EXAMS? FOR REVISING IN GENERAL? please i always avoid psychology revision it's so bad
