I got my AS results and I was dissappointed and shocked in both good and bad ways.
In English (AQA) I got a B overall - 154/200 [with 96/120 (A) and 58/80 (B)]

Early Modern History (Pearson) I got a C overall - 126/200 [with 63/100 on both papers]

However on my OCR exams (Law and Classics: ancient history) things got weird...

In Law I was a solid A grade student never dropping below 100/120 yet my results landed me with a B - 156/200 [with papers marks 90/120 (B) and 66/84 (A)]
And in Ancient History I was a solid B normally yet I got a C - 130/200 [with my papers marks 74/100 (B) and 56/100 (D)]

I dunno if it is just me being in denial that I didn't do as well as I hoped, but my OCR results seemed odd! Any advice on whetheri should try for a re-mark or re-sit or any other advice?
Thanks!

Hi, I got confused from identifying your final grades from coursework grades, but from the looks of it, with a handful of B's especially at AS-level is really good. They actually show you got some academic talent, so i wouldnt be too down. I'd say just keep working at it when it comes to A2 exams, who knows, those B's could potential become A's as you final grades. So are you looking into doing e.g. law or English at uni?

Sorry it's so complicated, basically I've got B in English and Law and C's in my two history's! I was wanting to do History at Southampton university but I'd have to work really hard next year to get in as its offer is AAB-ABB, but if my college lets me do EPQ even though I didn't get BBB, Southampton will lower the grade boundaries if I get an A in it

You should, in my opinion, look over your English Legal System script with your law tutor and discuss whether there is potential for those 4 marks - bringing your grade up to an A. I am going to do similar for Ancient History, wherein I fell 4 UMS below an A on the Rome paper.

Good luck

Since you've gotten some B/C's i would recommend uni's that accept students based on the amount of ucas points they have compared to those that only accept grades only, I know for certain that there are other unis that offer history, who might teach history better than others but might wont require students to have high OP grades, id recommend looking around until you see/find more unis that you might like more than others. So with the grades you got for AS, you'e already made the workload for uni lighter. Hopfully this helps
