I go in for my A-level results tomorrow. I've blocked it out mentally until now. It feels odd, like a pre-Apocalyptic Christmas Eve. I want sooo badly to get my grades, but just don't know. I am scared stiff :eek:

Yes, I have my A-level results tomorrow and I'm not that nervous because I'm almost certain of what my results will be.

I know my first geography exam was a complete disaster though which I'm 99.9% sure cost me an A. :o

Trust me AS you will be pleasantly surprised like I was, and at least you have longer to sort yourself out if you missed out. It is people like me awaiting the A2 who are bricking it :lol: well I'm not really, I just don't think I could cope wasting an extra year resitting the same course when I could be at Uni :tape:

I wasn't made aware of these benefits till today. Makes me feel much more relaxed about my potentially tragic English Literature grade. My school kick us out of a subject if we get below a D though, but I don't think I did that bad. I got two extremely high C's for my CWK.

I love Poetry. I wrote about W.H. Auden for my Section A question and I think I nailed that one. I then had to write about Ian McEwan's Enduring Love, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Robert Browning. I don't think I did too badly describing McEwan or Browning, but Austen was a nightmare. I didn't even read the book!!! I found it impossible to get past Chapter 5!!!! But we had an appauling choice of books. Thank God for A2!

We did Thomas Hardys novel, The Mayor Of Casterbridge. Question was about womens roles in 19th century England. I am confident about that. We did Yeats and Kavanagh for poetry, I knew a majority of the poems really well, but how I structured my answer was a mess, I was adding stuff on at the end that I forgot :sobbing:, hopefully coursework will at least get me a C. I've already passed ICT with a B (Should have got an A :o) So at least that's one out of the way. Geography exam was easy, the repeat was just as hard as before :tape:

Keegan
Aug 20th, 2009, 02:30 AM
I think I got a B in Religious Studies. That one actually matters the most to me because I want to do that at Uni. That or Philosophy. I'm actually scared of my Drama grade too. I fucked up during my monologue, said "shit" and moved on. Traumatic stuff. I probably got a D or a C :(.

Religious Studies essays are so easy. The lowest grade I got in practice ones was like an A-. Unfortunately, I didn't pull out that magic during my first exam, and I assume it didn't work second time round either. Haha.

And it wasn't funny. I was devastated! Only one to fuck up! Even the shit kids did better than me!!!! I then tried my best the night after and didn't forget any of my lines during the group performance. But I was nervous. I was taking these like home remedy pills which help you calm down endlessly hahaha.

I did the IBs and they weren't all that difficult. I had 2 7s (English A1 HL, Spanish), 2 6s (ITGS and Math Methods) and 2 5s (Bio HL, Chem HL). And 0 of the 3 bonus points :o .

The requirements to get the diploma is what irritated me to no end. 150 CAS hours? UGH! I got mine faked.

A levels are separated into two sections. Advance Subsidary or AS Level is for the lower year of A Level.
A2 is for the higher year of A Level.

I got same grades as last year ABB so I get into my 2nd choice university. I didn't expect an A in English Language overall, I did worse as expected on one paper, but made up for it on the others. Somehow got B in art, and B in Literature. I needed an A :mad: which is freaking me out because in the Complementary Study I got an A, Poetry and Drama pre 1900 got an A, and Prose post 1914 coursework got a C, so somehow it dragged it down to a B. So baffled by this system but at least I got into a Uni :bounce:

Someone I know was not sure whether she got into Exeter for the first half of yesterday but in the afternoon, they told her she had definitely got in so she went out to celebrate. The following day, they did a complete U-turn and said they weren't sure, then they told her she hadn't got it!

I am sorry - but WTF - how can they not let you in with those grades? Did anyone else hear about the new A* grade they have brought out this year? It is totally bollocks, I got full marks on a paper at AS, so I could have had my first ever * grade if they'd introduced it earlier :help:

Its also weird for me cos I got ABB and didn't get into Newcastle, but my friend who chose History and got the same grades DID get in, the School of English is so strict! It is unfortunate as I was looking forward to sitting next to Eugenie and asking if she liked tennis :bounce:

Well I wanted to do veterinary science, so pretty much everyone going for it is applying with straight A's or at least AAB. Only got 1 interview out of a possible 4 and that wasn't successful, they had over 1000 people going for 75 places :sad: However, my friend was going for the same course, she was predicted AAB and was offered a place and then ended up with BBC :help:

Yeah I'm pretty peeved about the new A* grade, pretty sure I would have got A* for Biology. Scored around 285/300 UMS marks for my A2 biology papers, no resits, and the exam I did the least work for I got 90/90! Oh well...

It's times like these I have to soak up the benefits of the IB. It's super difficult, loads of coursework and we only get 4 free periods a week but thank god I don't need to go through the panic of waiting for AS results! :P

Congratulations to all the ppl who got their desired results! :D

I got:
2A*s in Irish and maths
4As in Additional Maths, Eng, Eng Lit, LLW
2Bs in Geography and Physics
C in Biology.

I'm happy with my results apart from Geography, I should have got an A in that. Waiting on my Religion result on Thurs.

especially when you are always the first one who stepped out of the room (just after the clock running for only 15 mins) with all finished exam :lol:

I did the IBs and they weren't all that difficult. I had 2 7s (English A1 HL, Spanish), 2 6s (ITGS and Math Methods) and 2 5s (Bio HL, Chem HL). And 0 of the 3 bonus points :o .

The requirements to get the diploma is what irritated me to no end. 150 CAS hours? UGH! I got mine faked.

Umm, you didn't even manage one bonus point? You must have not cared about TOK or your EE. You didn't suffer from Math HL like I did; I took mine in 2005 and it was horribly difficult. Still ended up with a 5. Which university did you end up in?

I feel very American here but if you take A-levels, are they a part of how you get into college, whether you passed the class, or both?

You have to take A-levels to get into college, when you apply to a University they will either reject you or give you an offer saying something like 'if you get BBB in your A-levels you can come'. If you get that you can go, if you don't you can't. :) It's a bit more complicated than that, but you got the general idea.

Wow, that sucks in America we do it a DIFFERENT way! It's still hard to get into a university in America though.

Is anyone else having trouble with SFE (Student Finance Eejits?) They are absolutely incompetent and due to their uselessness, I still haven't received my grant and according to today's phone call, I haven't even applied for one!

One month ago;
"No, we don't need any documentation from you confirming your Granddad is your guardian."
"Yes, you are definitely receiving the grant."

Today
"Oh, we need some documentation from you confirming your Granddad is your guardian."
"We have nothing on our screens saying you are receiving your grant."

Then the woman said I can change it on the 'my account' bit of my Student Finance form which is a lie!

Then I received the mandatory comment that part of the system was down so I needed to ring back another day :rolleyes:

Anyone else in the same boat as me?

Well I wanted to do veterinary science, so pretty much everyone going for it is applying with straight A's or at least AAB. Only got 1 interview out of a possible 4 and that wasn't successful, they had over 1000 people going for 75 places :sad: However, my friend was going for the same course, she was predicted AAB and was offered a place and then ended up with BBC :help:

Yeah I'm pretty peeved about the new A* grade, pretty sure I would have got A* for Biology. Scored around 285/300 UMS marks for my A2 biology papers, no resits, and the exam I did the least work for I got 90/90! Oh well...

Where abouts are you planning to go and study now?, seeing as you had no luck with Newcastle? :hug:

I just remembered this thread, sorry I didn't reply earlier I don't get notified via email. I got into Northumbria instead which is next door, ironically I moaned about it at the time but I LOVE it so much here, I am SO glad I didn't get into Newcastle instead...how are you doing? I am finally going back to Uni tomorrow, my Christmas break has been going on since December 4th :help:

It seems that lots of people try to avoid going to uni which is near to them and end up going there and finding that they love it! I guess it's one of those beliefs that you've gotta go miles away when you go to uni. I was offered a place at Edinburgh to study vet medicine just before Christmas, so I'll be heading up there in September :) I think your Christmas break has been longer than all of my friends, it's odd how some unis have about 6 weeks and then others only have a couple... :shrug:

Yeah I know what you mean and I'm so glad I'm back at Uni now, I couldn't believe it when someone said our break was as long as or longer than a summer holiday :help: some of my friends go to Edinburgh and they like it/
