Ok so I don't want any trolls telling me I should have worked harder etc. For the 3 modules I achieved B,C,D (S1, C2, C1 respectively) which gives me an overall 'C' grade for the AS-level. C1 was definitely harder than any past paper exams I had done which is where I lost so many marks.

YES! And everyone I've spoken to seems to have flopped maths too.

A C for a subject as hard as maths is no small achievement. Be proud

Glad I'm not the only one. It seems like everyone who is posting on the official TSR Edexcel Maths thread achieved 'A' grades. I feel really disappointed

OMG. That C1 paper was like nothing I have ever seen before!! No past paper could have prepared me enough for that! I might retake it as well otherwise I have no hope of getting an overall decent grade for the whole A-level. I cant imagine how difficult C3 and C4 are going to be!

I'm really not looking forward to next year. C3 and C4 are going to be so difficult! :/
I might just do D1 as my chosen module to try and make up for the marks I am going to lose from C3 and C4!


Thank you, maybe I am being a little too harsh on myself. I just wanted to achieve at least a 'B' at AS-level

No I fully understand you! I go to a really good sixth form but I don't know anyone who got higher than a B! I wouldn't compare my grades to anyone on this website tho, cause most people here are really high achievers. You still did well!

Oh really? I'm self-taught, so feel like I'm completely at fault for the grade I achieved. Not even sure whether to continue Maths to A2 :/

I got a B
C1= B ( mark equiv- 78)
C2= C (mark equiv- 68)
S1= B (mark equiv- 79)

I'm so disappointed with this, I thought maths was one of by best subjects and I was also predicted an A in it.

I did the C1 and S1 this year as resits and although i did good i thought those two were harder than normal papers, especially the S1. So dont be too hard on yourself.

I'm self-taught too! I picked it up in January so I had low expectations to begin with. But yeah I know people getting A's and B's in their mocks who got D's and E's today. If you need maths for your degree i'd keep it and retake a module you think you could do well in, otherwise i'd drop it.

C1: B
C2: A
M1: A

got a B overall, I was only 3 marks off an A so will probably retake C1, I'm glad I'm not the only one who flunked maths

Hi, I'm self taught too and got B C C (C1, C2, S1). I was so suprised with my C1 result but disapointed with C2. I'm already reading up on C3 to self teach myself A2. I want to eventually go to uni to do maths (although i work full time at the moment)so thinking of retaking C2 next year.
Don't give up. It's almost like learning a new language with no one to talk to and practice with. I've already noticed in C3 that it is much of the same as C2 but in further depth so you will have a good starting point.
Keep going and remember you're learning and getting better all the time.

I'm in a similar position to you! It's so difficult to do A-levels whilst working! Do you mind if we stay in touch?

Infact... does anyone else who is self-taught want to keep in contact?
