Hi I saw a similar thread for last year’s cohort. Thought it would be interesting to make one for ours.

Write down:
1. Subjects you took exam board
2. Your predicted grades for each/ what you think you’ll get personally
3. Your overall opinion about how the exams went
4. An update of what you got on results day


Update: looks like someone has already made this thread, feel free anyway.

I got too excited for my english creative writing bit so I may have tanked that just a little bit. All the others went okay. My predicted grades are messed up tho, i feel like teachers inflated them to help my sixth form application and my confidence.

(Subject/Predicted/My expectation)
Eng lit/9/8
Eng lang/9/8
Physics/9/9
Biology/9/9
Chemistry/9/9
History/8/7
Art/8/7
Further Maths/A*/A^
Statistics/A*/A*

All of them are edexcel except for OCR art and AQA further maths

Subject/predicted/my expectations
English Literature AQA/9/8- only one essay I didn't feel good about
English Language AQA/9/9- Grade boundaries are always low af and my story was nuts- dunno about the article though.
Maths Edexcel/7/6- I suck at maths stuff. Seriously.
Biology AQA/7/8- Both the papers were really good for me, and I think boundaries will be low, so hoping for a surprise-wouldn't mind a 7
Chemistry AQA/8/7- chemistry paper 1 was a massive yikes, plus I struggle with maths so that was terrible. Paper 2 was good tho
Physics AQA/5/5 Lmao do I need to say it again?
History Edexcel/9/9-walked through it for the most part
Geography Edexcel/7/7- probably an 8, but I tended to stumble through the third paper
Latin WJEC/8/7-****ed up a few translations, but I should be fine
RE Eduquas/8/8- all dependent on whether my atrocious handwriting can be read.
Spanish Edexcel/7/7- it was torture, I might have scraped it

Not sure about Edexcel Spanish, but sitting GCSE, AS and A2 Spanish this year was probably the worst decision that I ever made 😂

I actually have no idea how I managed it, however I feel like A Level exams won't be a problem as I kind of got used to do 7-8 exams in a week lol.

It'll be weird to go to the A Level Results day on the 16th as almost no one from my year will be there.

Then on the 23rd I'll be picking up my GCSES, af this point I just want to meet my college's offer 😅

You omitted maths, although I assume you expect a grade 9 from that. You have some stonking grades predicted there! Will you show them on results day if they match your expectations?

Predicted: (all my subjects are CCEA exam board)

English lit: A* / English lang: A / Maths: A / Biology: A* /Physics: A / Chemistry: A / ICT: A* / History: A / French: A*

I'll probably get B/Cs in most of them, I didn't revise too seriously or anything so can't expect to get my predicted grades, thought the exams went pretty well though

Thanks!
I did maths last year and got a 9, although i had to beg my maths teacher pretty hard to submit me for it.

I'll make sure to update it when i get my results.
