    I'm worried already and I only need 3 Bs . Sussex is great for biology/life sciences in general but I'm not keen on the idea of taking an extra year. I've got an AS resit on Wednesday next week and then study leave on the 1st, then A2 exams start on the 13th. Both of those first two exams (AS resit & first A2) are Chemistry (the bane of my life!)

    I'm actually feeling quite motivated for revision today. Maybe because I haven't been to college for a couple of weeks so it's a kick up the backside to do work

    This thread started off for yr13 but if year 12s make it clear what year they are in then it should be ok.

    Of course like im so fresh said, it was originally for Y13 students to avoid confusion but it'll be better/easier/less confusing to have one results day thread for everyone, and it was fun last year :awesome:

    I know it's early but it's motivating me to keep revising :teehee:

    That was my firm last year. Good luck, it's a cracking course.

    Just don't expect any leniency. I was 2 UMS short due to coursework moderation (had AAB) and they still said no

    (Original post by madders94)
    I already know that the night before results day will be an all-nighter though. Obsessively checking UCAS from 6am
    Everyone said this last year and by the time they day came around, i think 3 people stayed and a load of new people entered the thread

    Was good fun though. Do it!

    I got an iPad on Saturday, serious procrastination tool! Although, I have written some FP3 notes on there so I guess I can (kind of) justify it.

    Last year's was great - I was an ASer in it and made a few friends. How's the exam prep going? Tricky A-Levels you've got there, I started French and dropped it pretty quickly. Saying that, I dropped RS, French, Biology and Chemistry at various points; it seems I've dropped more A-Levels than I've taken. :lol:

    Good to see you've let the ASers in now - if last year's thread hadn't done that, I wouldn't have this post count :laugh:

    It started around the last few exams IIRC?

    I think mine begins after half term, so 11th June. Although our school's version of 'study leave' is 'you don't have to go to registration but you still need to turn up to lessons'. My physics exam is on the 11th

    I did an all-nighter for GCSE results day and also ended up having a mass MSN conversation with loads of people popping in and out (we even got imsoacademic in for a while ), it was great. I spent the night before AS results day with my boyfriend so I got some sleep because I wasn't that worried, but this year regardless of who I spend it with I think I'll be too nervous to sleep!
