    I'm pretty pleased with my results, went much better than I expected! I'm,slightly disappointed with my C3 mark but I suppose its what you might expect if you had forgotten to do a 5 mark question :p:

    Core 3 - A : 82/100
    Mechanics 1 - A : 98/100
    Understanding Processes - 106/110

    I'm really really happy with my mechanics and my physics paper. I'm convinced they marked me incorrectly for my physics paper though - I was sure I would get a D or an E, it was awful!

    Well done everyone!

    I did 2 law resits and got 90/90 and 101/120. I'm really happy, as I thought I'd made a massive error during the second exam. Well done everyone and good luck to those still to get their results.

    In my history course essay I went from a D to a B, so I'm happy about that!
    In my French listening I went from a U to a C! So happy too.
    French reading was a couple of marks lower than last year. But whatever!
    And geography I'm annoyed with.. I got a C for coursework and hazards exam when I'm predicted an A and was told my coursework was an A. But will be retaking that in June!
