    515- A

    I hoped for at least an A, so I'm pleased I got it. I had a TOTALLY incompetent teacher for year 11, so I attribute the A to the good teacher I had in year 10.

    I'm a little worried though- because I'm supposed to be doing maths next year for A level. Should I switch to english lit that I got an A* in? But then I can't do anything science-y at uni coz I'd be doing Bio, Chem and French as well, so don't I need the maths??? Argh!!!

    Well if u got a A u won't find AS particularly hard apparently and A2 just requires a bit more work so u shuld go 4 it.

    Hey, thanks for the advice. I probably will go for it, and just be prepared for having to work hard.

    I was expecting a C- but I was terrified I might get a U! The non-calculator paper was unbelievably difficult and I must have left out at least a quarter of it, with the rest filled up by comlete guesses! I hadn't even seen some of the topics that came up, let alone been taught them! The calculator paper was better, so I was hoping that and my B grade coursework would salvage a C. You can imagine my pleasant surprise on results day when I found out I got a B! I was shocked, and really happy, but couldn't really celebrate for fear of rubbing it in because my friends who did Intermediate all got Ds and have to resit! Poor sods....NO MORE MATHS AGAIN EVER ....as you can tell, I really hated it lol!

    A* 556/600 - How the hell I got 300/300 on the final I do not know. The beauty of scaled results

    I got a B (higher) but I was only expecting a C or maybe even a U after those exams, so I was really happy. No one in my school got an A* or an A, so I got one of the top marks and didn't even work that hard in maths as I hated it. Not bad really
