    Due to my poor thread reading skills, how did you do today?
    i havent put it on here, but I got 5As (one was GS though), a merit, and i failed my other aea :rolleyes:

    i got a top 5 in general studies which is just embarassing......!

    were you happy with what you got?


    ps. I also have the highly valued KEY SKILLS....i feel i can walk straight into any job now

    Wow, well done about Cambridge - you're pretty much set up for life if you get a good degree from there. Were you expecting to get those results?

    I know exactly what you mean about not looking forward to university - i can't believe i'll be there next month :eek:

    I needed AAAB..

    I was pretty sure of A's in bio & chem because I had lots of spare marks... from AS, jan modules, & c/w. I really wasn't expectnig to get the actual module results I did though - I was aiming just to get C's.....!

    Physics I was sure I had a B or even a C - i thought the exmas went awfully! it was actually the only time I have ever cried over an exam! i resat a physics AS one to try and get a couple of extra spare marks.. so I was very very pleased with what I got.

    Maths I wasn't sure about because I had some spare marks and I was also resitting P2 to try and get more spare marks.. so an A was possible... but p3 was the hardest module I'd ever done and I really did struggle with it so I thought that could have dragged it down to a B. module results (P3 & s1) surprised me in a good way as did p2 resit (crashing my car just before the exam and running in crying with the exam having started and no one having noticed i wasnt there was not the best start to an exam.. )

    AEAs: expected to fail chemistry :rolleyes: but was hoping for a merit in bio (shhhhh, but very secretly i was hoping for a distinction. but that was just delusional).

    geeneral studies: what can i say, it's a joke, i skived all the lessons and didnt study the pre release material or even finish any of my essays..., and i wrote an entire essay on how i would reform the a level system based largely around scrapping general studies... so to have that as my best mark was just embarassing as I said

    my friend got a B but i think it was only because he wrote subject name on his exam booklet as Genital Studies

    and now i see all that i realise that was far, far more information than you wanted...but what the hell.

    It's ok, i read it all if that's any consolation. I know exactly what you mean about P3. When i did it i just looked at the paper and struggled for 1 hour 30 minutes trying to answer some questions. I think i only answered 2 questions completely and half-attempted some others. I was actually quite surprised to get 40% in it (which i know is terrible; but you should have seen how much i answered of the paper)

    Lol, I wasn't going to suggest. I just found that OCR P3 was horribly hard, predicted myself a C in it... and then did quite well .

    40% actually impresses me because i know what a ***** P3 was.

    I cold have spent more time revising in total, but I dont think I would have been able to get much above 40 or 50% if it wasn't that I could pretty much write off 2 of my subjects and just focus on revising P3.

    the sad part is i probably couldnt integrate the simplest thing now. and im going to need it all in Oct. I'm even forgetting how to write properly since I left school... the only things i write are shopping lists and "room 34 cup of tea"... :rolleyes:

    PS. i am going to leeds next week to be assessed for a clinical trial they are running at the uni, so if im accepted ill be wandering round the uni several times next year... look out for me

    100%
    But as I said, the other module I thought that I'd screwed up, M2, I did kind of screw up, with 78%. Doesn't sound that bad, but before my marks my mechanics teacher was the only one of my maths teachers not willing to predict me an A (he said A/B) for Further Maths, although he did say that he'd increase my prediction to an A if I got good marks. Got 100% on M1, but the M2 mark could mean I'm left with some convincing to do .

    You never know with exams especially with the way they calculate the UMS. I sat a politics paper and found i had little to write for this question which was 100 marks out of 160 marks of the paper. I ended up doing amazing (my best politics result.)

    WELLL DONE DUDE! you have earnt my unceasing respect
    well, 78% is only very slightly under an A. and i think your 100%s in p3 and m1 should carry some weight! do not fear

    m2 the marking is messed up. the jan module was SO HARD. i really thought i was looking at D's etc.. and got 87% or somethnig. I think they must REALLY have mucked with the grade boundaries because i didnt finish (or start) several questions... got most of the show that;s wrong.., etc

    Well I did well in Physics, giving my Physics teacher a whole new respect for me, and since my Physics teacher is also my form teacher, who writes my entire reference, it means I have someone writing my reference who now respects me and expects things of me, so will, as he told me himself, push for my prediction to be moved up, so I do have a powerful ally (I hope that makes sense :confused: ).

    Well done you on getting into Cambridge though. I'm sure you'll enjoy it there .
