Well yeah, obviously I was shortening what I was trying to say, what I actually meant was that, I you are an individual who can access the data to your centre then you will receive the results on 13th... now it's much easier to say, Centre rather than all that bunch of words...

Now just like me, I have the login details for my centre, we don't do many Edexcel Exams, and considering I have done 12 Modules with Edexcel for Maths and Further Maths and that constitutes more than half of the A levels we do with them...

Uniform mark is what all your exams/modules add up to, for grading purposes. For AS it is out of 300, A-level is 600.

Since marks are converted to UMS, people usually get 100 UMS equivalent to 100%. Probably qu a few would get the "top marks" natuarally. OCR Salters Chemistry in particular give awards to people with 585 UMS --> 600 UMS etc, for best in the country thats the only one i know of.

You'd only find out via your school. You'd not openly be allowed to access exam board files to see whether you're one of the top scoring candidates. I think AQA and OCR Salters Chemistry (as somebody has already said in here) give awards for 'top 5' marks and 'top 10 marks'.

Your school coordinator is wrong. Results may be delivered to schools then though.

Yeah you're right, Schools receive the results a day before... and UCAS does so a week before or something like that I think..

UCAS get the results on the Sunday/Monday before results, and send the results to our relevant universities so they can get together the packs needed for freshers. You can find out after 8am on results' day morning I believe whether you've been accepted, but the likelyhood of you finding out is minimal - the UCAS server obviously gets clogged up and can't cope with any more than a certain number of people accessing it at once.

Erm, I should imagine the initial rush will be between 8 and 10 in the morning, so after that when people actually have their results in front of them, there'll be fewer people trying to access UCAS.
