    I'm ecsatic over the C3 and C4 grade boundaries ! I was very disappointed with my performace, having found myself in a position where I was potentially either going to scrape an A* or just miss out on it, despite aiming for 100 UMS in each paper this year (after achieving 100 UMS in C1/2 last year). As such, I'm very happy - especially so when considering I may still have achieved 100 UMS in C3, even after flopping half of Q2 (yes... Q2 :P).

    Wewt, rekt those Maths results , congratulations everyone!

    Overall grade: A* | 549/600 UMS | 91.5% UMS

    UNITS:
    MPC1 - 100 UMS
    MPC2 - 100 UMS
    MPC3 - 100 UMS
    MPC4 - 93 UMS (didn't finish the vectors and made two silly mistakes </3)
    MM1B - 100 UMS
    MD01 - 56 UMS (yeah, I did no revision for that one)

    I know, RIP in pepperonis 100 UMS in all core units :/ (was never aiming for 600/600 UMS because I'm too lazy for the optional unit ... only got 100 UMS in M1 because it's ez pz xD).

    Overall A-level subject grades:
    AQA Mathematics - A*
    OCR Physics A - A
    Edexcel D&T Graphic Products - B

    AS subject grades:
    AQA Mathematics - A
    OCR Physics A - A
    Edexcel D&T Graphic Products - A
    OCR Chemistry A - B (dropped because I didn't really like it that much and was thus less willing to revise - especially so when considering my school makes you drop to three A2's unless the fourth is Further Maths - for it, hence the B)
