    I took General Studies A level in one year, so basically did both AS & A2 exams. Ive got my results this morning online through edexcel, and it says two results, basically;

    General Studies - (grade) A
    General Studies - (grade) B

    How do i know what my overall grade is?! Its quite confusing, because it doesnt give any other details.

    Do those 4 modules cover both years, or are they just A2?

    I assume they are for both years, because my exams were mixed together. In other words, i did a couple of papers of AS & A2 in january, and the same in june.

    I agree, general studies is crazy. I've been to no lessons, not revised and got full marks on 2/3 of the papers giving me an A grade. Bizarre.
