    It is but your school probably decided to give it to you next week like mine.
    Ah, okay. Irritating, but I'm glad that's all it is. Thanks

    Thank you!I did think about that but 45 UCAS points on the current tariffs is far too much. I checked on their website and it's 20 for 2016 tariffs and 10 for 2017. Apparently the 45 is the number of points for another scoring system that nobody really uses.
    Oh yeah sorry I just checked and you're right. I just assumed it was UCAS points, oh well doesn't really matter. I wish we got our mark back though.

    So is today results day for add-maths? Because I haven't got my results yet
    Yes it's a level 3 qualification so results come out the same day as A levels. Might be worth contacting your school? Or if you've sat any GCSEs this year then go into school on results day next week and you should be able to get it.

    Thanks I tried contacting them, but haven't got a reply. Hopefully I'll get them next week. (Haven't taken any GCSEs this year, I'm year 9)

    Hi, I got a B in the FSMQ exam even though my predicted grade was an A and I had achieved a high A in all of the previous past papers that I had done.I am disappointed with my grade because I want to study economics at a top university, preferably Oxbridge or LSE. Will a B be a disadvantage? Please advise me on what to do next.

    Not really.
    As far as I am aware, even doing FSMQ reinforces your application for any of the universities as it shows that you have studied applications of maths at an advanced level, rather than the standard GCSE and A-level pathway, regardless of whether it was an A, B or C grade.

    This is what the admissions officer for Oxbridge told me.

    Someone asked at university open days, and apparently half the world (you know what I mean,) doesn't know that Add Maths exists - and apparently a lot of Maths graduates haven't taken Add Maths, so I doubt it.

    I got a B as well after a lot of high A marks in practice papers - as did most of my class.

    The statistics that I published show how many people got the grades.
    For instance, 40% of applicants got an A, 60% got a B or above.

    Yes, if you are in Year 11, your results come with the GCSEs you have taken.

    Hope it helps

    UCAS points.
    They're needed to get into university.
    The higher the grade, the more points you get and the more points you get, the more likely you can get into a specific uni.
