    I got a d d e and a u. Some parts of the d and e grades were u. Im at a very highly rated school and it appears that not many people got above a D. Has something changed? most of us were getting a and b in past test papers and then end up with d d e u? I don't understand and may others don't either.What ucas points will I get for these please? Where do I found the grade boundries as As level? can my grades go to down next year or will they more likely to go up? do I go to college instead and do a diploma course? im so worried.

    Do not panic as I did that and made the wrong decision, ultimately messing up my uni life.

    You continue 3 subjects to A2 Levels. I suggest choosing the 2 As and one of the D subjects (the strongest one out of those).

    Remember, you can always resit some exams to bump up your AS grades. My psychology was a C but I managed to bump it up to a B... if I tried harder, it would have been an A. Not all is lost, just resit a few exams and you'll be back on track.
