Obviously we have to wait till August to find out for A2 but we can come back and edit our posts then, so we can list all of our marks. This might function as a little motivation exercise in the last few days of sociology revision!

Mine:

AS:
SCLY1 - 68 / 80 UMS (A)
SCLY2 - 120 / 120 UMS (A)

A2:
SCLY3 - 67 (A) - raw mark = 45 (3 marks off an A* - )
SCLY 4 - 96 UMS - raw mark = 56 (A) (following a re-mark).

Overall UMS: 351.
Overall grade: A.

And you?

Only did AS so far


SCLY1: 60/80 UMS B
SCLY2: OG mark 82/120 UMS C. REMARK 108 UMS A
Overall: 168 UMS.

Can I ask, does this effectively mean I have already got an E in sociology?

In jan SCLY1 I barely did anything in terms of revision.
In may I did a fair bit more for SCLY2 and felt I had smashed the exam.

I couldn't handle the fact that more revision led to a worse grade than my january score and less than in English language which I didn't even revise for.

I just knew that I had done better than they said.
