Oh yeah I found that question too hard to think of points for. A01 & A02 was alright but A04 was absolutely awful.
(Original post by inspiringcolours)
Yep ahaha

I did the one on the impact of science on personal beliefs as I found that question far too ambiguous; I think I was alright on the A03/4 front but I was so stressed in that exam that my AO1 was absolutely awful.

Results day is looming and TSR tradition means we have to have a countdown thread for everyone to get to know each other, talk about their hopes/fears and generally relax (as well as sharing advice and information before the big day).

We'll update this post with pointers to advice and support soon but for now introduce yourselves

Introduce yourself
1. AS or A level?
2. What subjects?
3. How did your exams go?

For Yr 13:
4. What university is your firm/insurance?
5. Which subject?
6. What grades are required?

For everyone:
7. What grades are you predicted?
8. How are you feeling about results day?
9. Anything else to add?

FAQs
RESULTS
Spoiler:
Show


When can I collect my results from school/college?
That depends on the arrangements your school/college make - if you don't know the time then ring them up on Wednesday the 16th (there should be someone in that day) and ask.
How do I collect my results online?
Again, this depends on your exam boards and/or your school/college. If you don't know then ask them directly.
When do unis get our results?
UCAS get the results from the exam boards approximately a week before results day. They spend a day or two matching them to your applications and then send them on to universities either overnight Friday or Saturday. Universities then spend Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday MANUALLY comparing every offer to the results to decide whether applicants have met their offers or not (and if not whether they can be accepted with lower grades).




UCAS
Spoiler:

1. IAS (new spec)
2. Physics, chemistry and maths.. only p1 and p2, i'm giving m1 later
3. chemistry... ok but unit 2 was a different pattern with the 6 mark broad question... not my cuppa tea. 😂unit 3 was so far back I can't even remember how it went. unit 1 was the FANTASTIC though!
physics.,....😨😢 I actually don't want to hear my results for physics. it was DREADFUL! especially unit 1. after unit 1 i was actually questioning what the point of giving unit 2 was. unit 2 and 3 were alright though
maths.. overall ok but didn't get time to check😂 skipped the proofs on p2😨
7.predicted all A's😑 at this point for physics i don't think I'll get it (unless the grade boundaries are super low!!!)but for the rest i might stand a chance
8. The DUMBASS suspencce is just killing me!
9. nope!

1: AS Level
2: Further Maths

3: To quote a certain TV show "not great, not terrible". I actually don't really know, I thought the first paper was a wreck, but I was pretty happy with my performance on the 2nd. All depends on the boundaries I guess.

7: Not sure, I think it's an A?

8: I'm feeling relieved that I'm not in Year 13. To be honest, I'm still pretty scared for this one.

9: Good luck to all the Yr13s! I hope you get what you want and/or need!

1. AS or A level?
A level
2. What subjects?
Double maths, computing, EPQ and STEP I
3. How did your exams go?
Mostly alright, basically everything is resting on the further maths grade boundaries :lol:

For Yr 13:
4. What university is your firm/insurance?
Firm: Durham
Insurance: Southampton
5. Which subject?
Maths
6. What grades are required?
A*A*(maths + fm), A in computing
or AAB incl. A in maths + A in EPQ/2 in STEP (I got 60/60 pre-moderation in my EPQ so should be okay there!)

For everyone:
7. What grades are you predicted?
A*A*A (maths, fm, computing)
8. How are you feeling about results day?
Ignoring it currently I'm pretty confident on getting my insurance which I'd be really happy with so not too bothered tbh
9. Anything else to add?
If anyone has any threads they want to see on results day, let me know as I'm organising the A levels threads for results day on TSR :gah:
Oooooh, fancy colours! I agree with you, everything for me depends on grade boundaries, basically anything from a B to an A* is possible for me :facepalm:(although now I say that, watch me get a C!) I'm ignoring results day as well, I'm more worried about making a decision about studying Spanish or Russian at uni, but my actual results aren't bothering me too much....or at least I'm not thinking about it as much as I did for GCSEs!

Probably should not be here as I only took a level Russian and the ocr fsmq this year as I am in year 11, but the Russian exam was good and I think I got an A star an A if the examiner is stingy.

I can imagine A04 would be tough for that; I have one piece I could use for that question! I didn't like your question because it wasn't clear if it meant contrasts between the two novels or contrasts in one compared to contrasts in another, and the comparison and similarities would be difficult too when I like to base my essays on similarities!

I'm seeing people in here with A*A*A* targets and i'm jealous 😂😂😂😂😂. I'm terrified because my predicted grades are quite low and I know i've messed up a few exams so I'm just preparing to swallow my pride if things go badly wrong (which I think they will be).

You have your uni place regardless, A levels can be relevant to some grad schemes but otherwise i wouldn't worry about it too much if you've dropped a couple of grades.

1. AS or A level?
A Level
2. What subjects?
OCR Chemistry A (resit)
3. How did your exams go?
Much better than last year but it's super hard to tell - I think I've done enough to get an A* but depends on the boundary tbh

For everyone:
7. What grades are you predicted?
A* - previously achieved a high B having done bio/chem/geog last year having achieved AAB
8. How are you feeling about results day?
Nervous but super excited to know if I've got into KCL for Medicine
9. Anything else to add?
As I've already been through the process once for those of you who don't get the grades you want clearing is always a good option and many really good unis drop their grade requirements for courses by at least 2 grades so don't forget that's an option too
Good luck to everyone!!!!
