    It's the most infuriating thing that could possibly happen, so let's console ourselves together whilst ranting about how this is actually a government conspiracy to make the new specification look good next year...

    2 ums off an A in A level biology. I blame the ISA. Only AQA would give an isa on something not fully understood by scientists themselves (after images)

    1 UMS off A* in maths. Even though overall I've got over 90% UMS, it doesn't matter. To get an A* in edexcel maths you have to get 180 UMS or higher between C3 and C4, but I've got 179...

    7 ums (a lot I know but) off an A* in sociology and 5 ums off an A* in psychology, pretty annoying!

    1 UMS of an A in A-level Geography and 1 UMS of an A in AS Chemistry. Praying for a good remark on the geography as 3 A's sounds so much better than AAB.
