Hi everyone, I took Edexcel geography and I got low As in AS but 2 Ds in A2 papers, which I thought went really well but unfortunately this was not the case. I want to resit in order to boost my grade for future prospects as I am at university already (Russel Group) but some grad scheme require As and Bs and I got a C in Geography. It would be amazing if anyone else was resisting especially for paper 2 which is the report and requires a lot of extensive research.

Just find a test centre and enter yourself. It requires an exam fee and the test centre fee.

You should check it doesnt clash with uni exams. I doubt uni will compromise.

I looked at the spec and theres a Geographical investigation AS and Geographical research..

Its the last chance 2018.

Thanks for your response! I'm doing it at my old college as it's cheaper than at an exam centre as an external student but my old teacher liked me so he's going to help out anyway he can. I got an A in As I just need to pull up my A2 grades, it's the Geo4 report which is geographical research I think and is based on the pre-release which makes it harder.
I do history at Warwick which is 100% coursework/essays first year due to my module choice, my only outside option politics has a 3 hour exam in July so it definitely won't clash! I'm just thinking of job prospects it's for the best

Then you are sorted. I pointed it out because theres the geographical investigation which is also paper 2 of the AS. 2018 is your last chance. GL.

Hey!! Same I was so close to an A as well I’m gutted haha. How are you finding revision and everything so far? I’ve started revising unit 3 content but I’m finding it kinda hard doing it independently. Like I have no clue how to revise tbh 😭

Revision is a struggle cause I have to self teach myself all the content again. But there are still a few months to go till the exams so I am going to try and email my teachers to give me advice and resources as I threw it all in the bin.

Ahh same ! It’s gonna be so hard. But I’m sure we can do it if we leave ourselves enough time! Are you planning to go to uni this year? How is your application going/where did you apply/for what?

Yes I am! I applied for Loughborough, Cardiff, UEA, Birmingham and Portsmouth study Economics/Banking and finance. I got offers from all of them. I am gonna firm Loughborough as the business school is second to none. What about you?

Ahhh Loughborough!! I applied there last year for Geography but got rejected (got ABC not AAB). It looks insane! Really loved it there. This year I’ve applied to Manchester, Leeds, York, Birmingham and Liverpool. I’ve got Conditionals from York/Birmingham, Unconditional from Liverpool and waiting for Manc/Leeds (my two faves) haha. Are you retaking any other subjects?

Which one are you edging towards? They probably would've let you in on ABB and yeah Maths as I was a few marks shy as well in it.
