I got 86/90 on module 2 AQA chemistry and
70/90 on module 4 chemistry, seeing as i thought i'd be getting a D on this paper i'm absolutely over the moon to get so close to the A!
Last summer i got 53/90 on module 2...so this has improved my grade massively!

Ive scored 79/90 (A) in my economics module and I am seriously concerned that I might have to retake the module as this module is the easiest out of all.
Do you guys think it is worth doing?

market systems is known to be the easiest but 79 is a good mark. I would concentrate on doing better on the other two papers this year. National Economy and Market Failure are challenging and i would devote my revision on these in june rather than redoing systems. You do realise that for the European Paper at A2 you require knowledge of 2881,2882 and 2883. I think its best to retake next year if you have to as you have to revise the information in prep for the paper. 79/90 is a good mark as i have heard it was a hard paper this year. Im retaking it in June as part of my revision for the European Paper.

My general studies maths paperr went up from a C (65/100) to a B (78/100) which means I've now got my 5As at AS level, so I'm really happy

Chains rings and spec: 81, pleasantly surprised since i didnt notice the last page till 30 seconds before the end of the exam

Physics FFE: 90 , this was my target

Physics Nuclear and Particle: 77 wish i'd got 90, but i suppose i can't complain, i now need 13/120 in the last exam for an A overall

Mechanics 2: 100, pleased as it gives me a buffer to not do so well in the further pure modules which i don't like >.<

I am both over the moon and also disappointed with my results.

I got 2 Bs for sociology and also managed to raise a U up to a D, but i feel i could have done alot better in that exam if i had just managed my time better so that's abit annoying.

For my psychology resits i got a U, which was expected as i didn't have time to revise for that module and also an E which i am annoyed about and think i'm going to send it off to be remarked as i really think i did well on that exam and was expecting atleast a C on it. If i still get an E after that i think i might just give up on psych because i don't know what else the examiners want, it just takes the piss!

I received my results for Chemistry, Biology and Maths only yesterday. I believe I am with the Edexcel board for all of my classes.

My UMS mark for Biology was 74/100, which equates to around a B.
For Maths, my UMS mark was 69/100, which is around a low B/high C.
Finally, for Chemistry, my UMS mark was 36/100 - essentially a U grade.

I have to admit, I was actually quite surprised by my results as I was very lazy at the time and did not revise as much as I nearly could have :rolleyes: . However, I will retake them and succeed! :p:

Enough about me, what were all of your results?

AQA Maths:
C1 - 56/100 UMS
S1 - 49/100 UMS
(so averaging a low D).

But hey, plenty of retake opportunity and I know I wasn't pulling my weight in the subject anyway...
