Im a year 12 student and recevied a disappointing result last week.
Maths C1 94/100 (Edecxel) OK
Economics 2881 61/90 (OCR) 2marks off B
Philosophy and Ethics foundation 59/100 (OCR) 1 marks off C
Chemistry 2850 Chemistry for life 62/90 (Salter) 2marks off B
I was expecting to get AA in Maths and CHEMISTRY (Was very confident of getting A in CHEM, but dunno what went wrong) , BB in Economics and philosophy at least. But decide to drop CHEMISRY this year.
I plan to do a PPE course in York, typical offer AAB. How important will my predicted grades be when I apply for UNI?
Will it be a good tactic on retaking Economics and Philosophy this JUNE to boost my UMS in order to get a higher predicted grade? Good idea just focus on subjects that I want to take onto A2?
Is it true that the resit will be straight after the new original exam(s) of that subject in JUNE?
Thanks for reading and advices are welcome!
They're not that bad. Retakes require revision much like every other exam. You're predicted grades should be at least AAB if you are applying to a good uni like York. Also, if you think you're more likely to get an A in chemistry that philosophy, drop philosophy. You have maths and economics so it wont matter.
