    I've been seeing loads of threads after results day about stories of people doing way worse than expected, but when i got my AS level results I was shocked at how much better I did than expected.

    I took Maths, Accounting and ICT and I got:

    Maths - A
    Accounting - B
    ICT - B

    My results went a lot better than expected for me I thought I was probably getting ACC or something and I was even doubting my A in maths at points. I especially didn't think I was going to do so well in maths I got 273 UMS (91% average). Accounting was so hard for me I thought the exams were horrible and difficult and when i saw the grade boundaries I thought they were super high and I had no chance.

    Has this happened to anyone else? I would like to know.

    It has! I was sure I had failed my ICT exam and was counting on my coursework to bring up my grade. I was almost certain I had gotten less than a D in my exam.

    Turns out, I got straight As in ICT.

    I was certain I had got something along the lines of BCCD after how hard I found my exams but I actually got AAAA with full UMS in two exams! Extremely surprised!

    Yeah, ICT was my worst subject because the coursework... I didn't put anywhere near enough time into it and came out with a C and a B in the coursework and I though I would probably get a C overall because to me the ICT exam felt too easy so I thought I would fail something... turns out I got 89% haha.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I got my results. I was predicted B in Maths, Physics and Business, and a C in Further Maths.
    Instead, I got A's in Maths and Further Maths and B's in Physics and Business. I also got 280/300 UMS in Maths, which I was very pleased with!
