So, It turns out that my lack of preparation has cost me. Big time.
In my psychology exam i did only one study for stress management in the first section. Will i still be able to get an A?
Even worse, my aqa politics exam. I spent way too long on the 8 markers and accidentally only did half of the last 22 marker...will this wreck my chances of an A at the end of the year for AS?
On the bright side, I did the 8 markers well be does that count for much towards getting my set target grade: A. My first 22 marker was average.
So for the younger kids, a bit of advice, don't go to continous parties doing this and that before the exam!
aqa. I think I got around a D for my politics. Is it even possible to get an A at the end of the year, how well do i have to do?
I wouldnt beat yourself up too much about it. You may not have done as bad as you think, and anyways, hopefully, if you've learnt your lesson, you will retake and doo better in june
Ok, feel free to discuss it.
I don't want to resit, it'll look crap on my ucas because i'm applying for law at some top unis. I was being a cocky git and i'e payed the price as i was predicted 5 As. I've learnt my lesson but if i do get a D in politics would it mean i can't get an A at the end of the year?
If you resit it in June, it won't show up on your UCAS AFAIK
Yes, but don't the universities know what date you sat them on so they'd figure it out? TBH, it is my own darn fault, i did no plan essays whatsoever like i did in the past. I will have to stop my social life for a bit.
Schools take exams at different times. Some other schools will be taking that particular politics exam in June, so I am pretty sure they will not know about it.
Agh you had the same two exams as me! I wouln't worry about psychology too much but unfortunatly I doubt you'll be able to get an A in the politics if you got a D in this module - to be honest i'd retake it a retake will look better than a low grade
Thank you, i really should've listened to the adults telling me that i wasting my 'talent'. Its a shame that i only realise when things have gone tits up! Will Cambridge/Oxford know that I did ****e in my first try if i resit or will they not realise anything at all?
If you're sitting exams for FIVE subjects, will one module really impact your application for "law at some top unis"?
Yeah but if i get a D:
a). it will be really hard to get an A at the end with all my other subjects too.
b). i may not even be able to get an A at all!
