    The Phillips curve shows the relationship between unemployment and inflation and i used it in one of the questions.

    So when are the deadlines for getting your script back and a remark ? i read the photocopy is 20th sept. Surely there is a long deadline seeing as AS student havnt started school yet
    deadline for photocopied script is 23rd August. deadline for a remark is 20th september.

    I'm sure this question has been asked before, but would someone be kind enough to explain how awarding top marks at A2 works? Is it necessary to obtain over 80 marks in both AS exams to be with a chance of getting an A* at A2 or do I need over 90 at both AS exams?


    Thank you in advance

    I would retake it since after starting A2, AS macro will seem much easier in a way. F582 was marked more harsher this time as well. Some of my class mates got An A in f581 but a mid B in F582 so they missed out on an A overall by a couple of UMS. It didn't help that the grade boundaries were extremely high in June as well.

    I would say go for it, but resits will be in June next year along with all your other exams. Good luck x
    hmm okay, I'll take that into consideration. yes the grade boundaries were ahh that must be annoying! are they retaking it? ahh I know, but luckily it would be in may right? as A2 is in june? Thank you for replying btw, I appreciate the help, Thanks, Good luck to you too xx

    Did you do Transport or Work and Leisure?
    I and my class did transport economics which wasnt too bad. i say that now though after spending hours studying it.

    Congrats man, did you get into your uni of choice?

    Btw do you know how much was needed for an A overall,
    I know that 280 UMS overall was a B, how much was needed for an A?
    Thanks man, and yeah i got into my fist uni choice

    And A is 320ums, what did you get overall for econ and for transport? And did you get into your uni choice aswell?

    I got a C overall. Isn't it crazy how you can get Bs in all 3/4 modules, but fail the other module and end up on a C, from that you should be able to work out what I got for Transport lool
    Terrible.

    It's never been this high for 80 UMS in F582 (49/60).

    The high boundary really messed up my UMS.

    i dunno what the **** OCR does , this paper i thought i'd ****ed up , then the high grade boundaries the day before sent me into a mass panic , turned out i'd got 94 UMS !

    however Micro , 44/60 for an A , thought i;d got atleast 90 UMS on it was confident for that one on results day - a C -_-

    **** you OCR. just **** you.

    I knew I should've gone to a school that does edexcel haha, all my edexcel exams have being kind to me

    haha I'd have about 88% which would tie with further maths and hence it would secure a decent average.

    Man I just can't even comprehend how I dropped 12 marks? If it was the essay I'm gonna laugh because I got 18/18 in micro... I know for sure I lost 2 calculation marks but everything else I have no idea... hopefully my photocopy shows examiner slip ups!

    ye gonna say cos i was reading through this thread earlier today ( i got THAT bored ) and you and me wrote some pretty similiar stuff for the essay and i HAD to have done quite well on that , otherwise i would never have got 94/100 ! the essay is really subjective though , i assume you got one harsh examiner so maybe on the remark you get a nice one haha
