    I wish my school was like that. They enter me for resits for everything! And yes, they have tried to make me resit modules in which I got full marks the first time.

    My school makes no sense.
    Mine are similar. I don't have to resit my full marks paper, but I have to study the stuff again, even though I have other stuff to be revising for.

    EDIT: Incidentally guys, I don't think I'll be joining you next year. I had a nightmare in P3.

    Try not to think about it. That's what I'm doing...as I know I haven't passed P4....

    I hate A levels...can I just have my predicted grades?

    Guys.. check out past examiners' reports - they should have previous years' grade boundaries in them.

    For a lot of A2 papers you only need ~60% raw marks to get an A in that module.

    This is very nice to know.

    ^^^ not sure why, but my school (unless you dropped a grade or so) isn't overly keen on resits. Although I'm far too lazy to go through with resitting a paper I dropped a few marks on anyway (I considered it though, lol :p: )

    *looks puzzled* P3?

    P3 is a maths module.

    also: we just filled in our application form to be parents. so watch out, you could be our child. (none of us do history though so you may be safe)

    I don't know how true that is for arts subjects but many of the science/maths modules for the boards I did needed raw marks far below 80% for 80% UMS

    (Damn university. Here they scale marks by about 2% at most. They're normalised, but they only have to adjust the boundaries by at most 2% each year. Or so my supervisor says. On the other hand - if i get 60% I can congratulate myself heartily)

    P3 in January was about 55 for an A and 49 for a B (out of 75, not percent, unfortunately hehe). At most I have 59, which would be utterly amazing, but I don't trust myself not to have made silly mistakes and I reckon it could be as low as 41, which would be awful. I could still manage an A overall, but only if I got 87+ (UMS/100) on my other three modules. Hum. It's behind me now though, I have to concentrate on getting at least AAB.

    I would have not been so excited had that been the case. Thinking about all the bills and the nagging and... I forbid, the nappy change :eek:!
