Because I think I stand a chance at being the best in sociology! I got 100% in the first exam and i'm pretty confident about the others (results aren't out for another 62 days!)

I heard there was an award for those who only missed five or less marks overall or something? Is it true?

This is in AS level by the way.

I got 100% in all three of my Economics AS level exams.....didn't get a single thing except a piece of paper!!!

I think it would be a bit unfair or weird for the exam boards to give awards:P surely the award is the grade!!

I would imagine there would be too many people who get 100% in everything. I know someone who did for Physics OCR last year, and he didn't get 'an award' or anything.

Yeah for AQA they do! I'm hoping for one in geography! Just need 89 or 90 in my last module for it. I might even get away with dropping more than that because they7 send letters to the top 5 scores so say no-one got 599/600 then people with 595 are in with a shot and so on.

We get subject awards from our college; I've been awarded the prize for music and french, and I think that's the best I can hope for!

We are only allowed one award each. I got the Chemistry one at my college... vote of confidence for an A i'm guessing.

I'm not sure the departments really talk to each other at my college... the staff rooms are so far apart!

Yeah... hopefully it's an indication of good things to come!
