I'm calling my school chasing my AS result up because I was meant to have them emailed and I still got nothing 🙈 And I literally got a message saying I have an email and I got so excited thinking it was my result but it was actually just photos from an event I took part in during the school year, I'm gonna die of cardiac arrest in a minute

Still waiting and verging on cardiac arrest lol, I managed to get them to pick up and I happened to get picked up by the principal, and he said he'll try and get them to send it to me as a priority but I'm still waiting unfortunately

Ah that's such a shame - the last thing you want is a delay. Fingers crossed it'll be worth the wait!

Relieved but disappointed, I was hoping for an A and now my family won't leave me alone. But hey, at least the stress is over lol

Hey there I just recently got my results and most failed all of my International A levels (Year 13) (Maths, Chemistry, ICT )(UUE) could someone help me with what I should do? my teachers told me to resit all I honestly don't know what to do and what units I have to take each month(October, January, June).
I got an A* in psychology, an A in maths and a C in physics, which is about what I was expecting. Thought I did a lot worse in physics though. Genuinely surprised I hadn't failed. Disappointed but not surprised by maths. I was only 7 marks off an A* : /

nice, although not the top grade, B in AS is still fine ig. In 2022 I also did my A-levels and got BBC lol. c in math b in physics and psychology. only taking AS in account: A in math, B in physics and psych. 2 years early. idk how i got that

2023: A in math (close to A*, just ****ed P3, perfect scores in some papers), A in psychology (that was close) and B in physics (did worse in retakes).

So I screwed up my results. Shouldn't have retaken physics, i was basically so close to A*. If I had and taken psych 4 i could've gotten A*AB or even A*A*B. But that's all conjecture and i've underachieved in life

What is your UMS? Some papers could've been done well even if overall the paper sucks, or some grades are worse than others.

I'm sometimes not quite sure when you're joking, but just to be clear, you have not. There are loads of doors open, and lots of routes to get to where you eventually want to be.

I got better than I thought. I did Socio, Econ and History and I really thought the papers were really hard for Econ and Socio while people thought it was easy. But I'm beyond happy with my grades and being accepted to UNI is rly wat mattered.

Anyway I got A*AA with A* in Socio and As in the other subjects. I just could not believe it when I opened the enevelope

I feel great about my results, I did better than ever and Im on top of the world with an AAB. It truly means the world to me to feel like Ive had years of work validated... however, I dont think many of my classmates got fair grades. Maybe they got too cocky or maybe they flunked on the paper but it still feels wrong to me that someone in my class predicted an A* got a B and a bunch of my A grade friends got C's. All this while people in my class who deserve NOTHING got C's too. My class had a 100% pass rate but that doesn't change the prospects of my friends who got C's and D's.

Although Im grateful for my grades, I feel a lot of remorse for those around me who didn't get what they needed.

Im upset about my C in Physics. was definitely expecting atleast a B grade. My school has submitted an appeal, but ive already gotten into my Insurance choice.

Their prospects are fine (even though it doesn't seem that way), it'll just take them a bit longer to be where they want to.

I certainly hope so. They're all very smart students and the anxiety this has given them is palpable

Honestly they will be ok. I have terrible A Levels, failed one. Went to university in my mid-20s under WP and things turned out very well indeed (terminal degree, postgrad at Oxford, job as academic at top institution). I have 50 stories like this from people that flunked A Levels - one of my best mates got bad A Levels and a 2i in law from LJMU, he works for a magic circle firm now on silly money.

A Levels are important for the first step aged 18 after 6th form, but after that their value diminishes greatly.
