    I just received my AS results (AAB) totally surprised. I thought would get all D's if I was honest.

    Anyway in each of my thee subjects I got:

    198 UMS marks for Politics
    167 for Media
    144 for history

    Has that put a bit of pressure of me for next year? I mean I will try just as hard as I did in my first year but if I were to mess up an exam, how low of a grade could I get if I can still do well? I heard somewhere that you can end p getting a C in your A2 exam, but still end up with an A overall. So if I were to get all C's next year, where would my results be then?

    I'm just worrying I will mess things up big time next year....:/

    Many thanks!

    It's made your life easier for next year - has lifted the pressure if anything! Although dont get complacent, make sure you still strive for best results. For now sit back & bask in the glow of your amazing AS's!

    As for predicting results - A2 exams carry more weight so it's hard to say. Your AS's will help a lot to boosting your chances of staying with those grades or even going up a grade!
