    I hope everyone got the grades you hoped for today, congratulations if you did. If not, please do remember today is just one day in the rest of your life. You have so many exciting options ahead of you

    I was wondering though, if you took Geography and History and your grades weren't what you were hoping for, I'd love to hear from you and why you think that was?

    Last year when I got my GCSE's I was expecting an A* in Geography however I ended up with a B (B in both exams) and my Geography coursework got marked down from an A* to a B. I was dissapointed but looking back now it wasn't too bad and I should have taken Geography as an A level.

    History I got an A*, and my coursework got marked up from 49/50 to 50/50 xD

    I think Coursework will be a factor in weather people get the grades they want

    I had something similar when I was doing GCSE History. I got straight A*s in my exams but my coursework got marked down to a B and that brought it down to an A which was a 3 marks off an A* -_-

    I took Geography and from the start of the year I was predicted a B got my results today and I came out with a C and that is the subject I wanted to do at A-level. I'm not sure what went wrong tbh
