    A-Level results day is just 4 weeks away now :argh: So I thought it would be interesting to see what grades everyone predicts they'll get in their A-Levels, so post down below what you think you achieved!

    It would be nice if everyone could then come back to this thread on Results day, quote their prediction post and post their actual results so we can see how optimistic / pessimistic everyone was being (hopefully we all do better than we predicted! :woo:)

    I'll start off in the next post, just remember to use the grades YOU think you got, not those predicted by your teachers.

    And of course if you don't want to take part in this thread you don't have to! There's no point writing a post in here if it's going to make you worry, if you're worried you should go and have some fun to take your mind off it! This thread is purely here for those who want to partake :yep:

    Name: Emily

    Level: A2

    Required Grades for Firm: A*AA

    Predictions:
    A*/A - Maths (AQA)
    A/B - Further Maths (AQA)
    A - Computer Science (OCR)

    Comments: I was really trying to be precise with these predictions but with both Maths and Further Maths I think I was SO on the borderline, it could easily go either way dependant on how the grade boundaries come out (I'll try and alter this post when they're released to see if it decides a prediction for me.) Being honest I think I'm borderline between the A and A* in Computer Science too but I reckon that one really is more likely to be the A.

    Need: AAB or AAA

    prediction:
    worst case - ABBC
    best case - A*ABC

    comment: maths went well, it was quite standard. Geography was going well until the last exam where I froze for 5 minutes and crossed out a whole paragraph to restart, so that could mess up everything and everything. I feel fine for history, but thats how I felt at AS too and came out with C, so I dont have any direction where this is going, the marking is subjective imo. ive no idea what they want but I tried my best doing what my teacher wanted and what example A* answers had anyway. with the worst case scenario, I won't meet my offers at all, so im hoping to get in through the chance that they need spaces to be filled

    Don't presume the worst, just try to stay positive - as you say, there's no way for you to know how it's gonna go. There are options for you whatever happens, particularly as your other grades will all most likely be pretty high

    Required Grades: ABB

    Predictions:

    French - A/A* (but WJEC...)
    English Language - A
    Drama - B
    Classical Civilisation - B/A
    EPQ - A

    What I'd really like: A*A*A*AB
    What I'd be happy with: AAABB

    Comments: The exam season for A-Levels was fairly tumultuous - there was the WJEC French paper, the unexpectedly awkward questions for English Language, and 2 absolute dream papers for Classics. Drama was an alright paper, even if it was a solid 3 hours long....

    Honestly so difficult to judge how they've gone, but I'm hoping that by having 2 extra subjects it'll help a little bit to get the grades, and in any case, hopefully my coursework will help to push them up at least a tiny bit!

    (Already have an AS in German and English Language at grade B)


    Prediction:

    German- A*
    Government and Politics- A/B (hopefully)
    Law- B (hopefully)

    Comment:
    I don't even know maaaaan :ashamed2: German went amazingly well and for politics I'm sure i put everything down which i thought was relevant enough not leaving out important details although almost nothing one of my teachers taught me came up (literally made my own study material that the whole class ended up using as revision). For Law i kinda messed up. There's two papers and in the first one i nearly ran out time so i bullet pointed the rest of the last question i still had to do (as my teacher often told us to in the worst case scenario) which wasn't much. Whether the quality, analysis and application of the questions was of satisfactory standard though...I don't know. For the second paper i kinda misinterpreted the questions and part of my answer for question 1 as I was writing it I noticed was meant to be for question 2. I kinda tried to rectify it but i don't know if they mark on presentation. All i know for that paper is that I absolutely aced the 35 marker no doubt. All I can say now though is that it's in God's hands now...

    Well if you get A*BC for example that still equates to ABB in terms of equivalents so you’ll have to see if Birmingham take into consideration equivalents in their offers! It really sounds like you’ve got this :woo:

    Required Grades for Firm: ABB

    Predictions:
    English Literature and Language (AQA) - B
    History (OCR) - A/B
    Sociology (AQA) - A/B
    Politics (AQA AS) - A
    EPQ (Edexcel) - A*

    Best Outcome: A*AAAB
    Worst: A*ABBB

    Comments: I feel relatively content about how this years exams went, although I think I'll be on the borderline for two of my subjects which is unnerving and frustrating considering the sheer amount of effort I put in. I just hope it goes well and I'm not disappointed as I have been during other results days. I know that, at least for me, gaining straight A's is unrealistic, but I'm optimistic that I can achieve some A grades.

    Let's hope everything goes to plan, good luck everyone!

    They are general grades, but one of the grades has to be in French - it's for a French and Linguistics course.

    Prediction: A*AA or A*A*A or maybe even A*AB
    A* - Maths (Edexcel)
    A/A* - Chemistry (Edexcel)
    A*/A/B - Physics (AQA)

    Need: A*A*A for Imperial (probably gonna take a year out so not really that important)
    Best case: A*A*A*
    Worst case: A*AB

    Comments: AQA physics just really messed me up - I think I went in not really taking it seriously then when in the exam it all hit me and the pressure made me make silly mistakes - I just missed out on loads of silly easy marks I would have gotten if I had done the test in class a week earlier. Chemistry I felt I messed up 1 paper but the other two went really well so hopefully an A* but maybe an A. Maths I thought was easy so I'm pretty sure its an A*
