    Don't worry about things that you can't change now.
    Just think that even if it does turn out to be a bad result, you can always resit them again.

    And eat some chocolate and unwind

    I suppose there is nothing that i can really say apart from dont worry about, whats done is done just concentrate on your next exam but most importantly learn something from your mistakes, life is full of events and it helps if you learn from them rather than just pass them by,

    this helps me sometimes when i need some cheering up,

    The thing is that you can't change the past. You can't do anything about it now, so you shouldn't stress!

    Forget about it until results day, then retake it once if not twice next year. Honestly it doesn't matter.

    I know how you feel, it will take some time to feel better but eventually you will feel alright. It's hard cos there's nothing you can do about it now but wait til results day and you might have done better than you thought, if not, you can always resit it, there's nothing wrong with that. As someone said, learn from the mistakes, whether it be nerves/timing/insufficient revision etc. Learn from it and don't repeat it for the remaining exams.
    So I would say, learn from your mistakes and try not to let it happen again. Concentrate on the remaining exams. Don't let that exam you feel bad about ruin your motivation for the exams to come.

    At least it was only an AS level. I've just messed up one of my A levels so I guess it's going to be a gap year for me next year.
