    Aha I got ABDE at AS, couldn't hack chemistry exams! But I turned it round and now I'm on target for a B in biology (the one I got a D in last year) psychology was kinda dull this year, too many studies! I got a high B at AS, 6 UMS off an A! so I'm hoping I got an A this year! Yeah I'm hoping I'll have managed as C, I was just angry at myself because I got 176/200 UMS at AS and an A* in my coursework so I'd be devastated if I missed out on that A because of one bad day. Ahh history is cool, I'm hoping to get into York, if not my insurance is Hull which I'm still happy with. I have a friend off to Derby, apparently it's great! I'm sure you'll have a great time

    Ah man everyone i know hates chemistry now! At least you got to drop it. That's good, hope you get that B yeah that was a reason i didn't take it, because in law i had to remember 200 cases so the 60 odd in psychology was just too much cases for me too keep it Wow that's brilliant, i understand what you're saying when something out of your control gets you like that. What do you need for york? Oh cool, what are they doing at Derby? Thanks i hope so, same with you and York are you from around there anyway?

    How can you view them online for AS results?
    My college provides our results on its website in the morning before we can collect the physical copy.

    How come you get to read them online? is this just your school?:rolleyes:
    Yes, I know it's not normal for most other schools. For my GCSE's I just collected them by hand but this was in a different location.

    Probably ACC if I'm lucky :lol:

    Hoping to get history and biology on edexcel results plus, I'll have to go in for literature. Just going to open the envelope straight away

    I doubt I'll be celebrating :sad:

    Hoping for AAAA, not sure what to expect though since hopefully due to the insanely hard core 2 maths there will be lower grade boundaries!
    I'm going to check them online because my college puts all results on there. There'll probably be crying either way to be honest haha.

    I suggest students don't get too carried away with AS results, as A2 will be harder. There are so many students getting AAA at A level now that this won't be enough to get into the elite universities by itself for competitive courses.

    Hoping for: AAABB-AABBB (+A in general studies)

    Expecting: AAABC-ABBBD

    I'll open them quickly and scan down the page, I'll be alone but usually just do it next to the queue, once I've got them in my hand I can't wait!

    If I get enough to be predicted A*AA for A2 I'll be smiling, but I think doing a big celebration would be unfair when some others won't have done as well as they'd hoped (I've been in the 'not done as well as hoped' position before and it wasn't nice) . If I'm disappointed, I'll probably discuss subject choices with teachers, but unless I get all D/Es I think I'll be relatively happy, but I would like at least one A!

    Do we need to do anything at school once we've got our results? Because I want to take them then find a quiet area, open them then either run outside to my Mum and cry or walk and celebrate.

    The school sent a letter saying we should bring our UCAS stuff, but do I REALLY need to do that at school?

    No but ucas coordinator at your school may be able to guide you if you have to go into clearing

    What are you expecting? BBC-BCC
    How will you open them? Will check track first then if its all good i will stroll in to college later than most people to collect the results. If its bad i will be on clearing straight away lol and rush to college to see the damage.

    How will you celebrate / react? Good: Will be smiling my ass off Bad: i will leave in a hurt and depressed mood and sort out clearing.

    You hated F325? I thought it was nicer than the past papers, a bit too nice. What did you think of F324?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yeah, F325 was full to the brim with calculations, some of which I had no idea how to start Plus, I barely finished it in time, it just wasn't great! And actually thought Unit 4 wasn't too bad, a bit odd in some Qs, but overall it went okay. What did you think?

    What I need: AAB
    What I'm expecting: same AAB

    Take the bus to school. The journey will feel really long. I'll try not to look at my phone or TSR or anything. Then when I finally reach school, take heavy steps to the library. There a teacher will hand me out an envelope. My whole body will be shaking at this point. When I start to tear the envelope, my stomach will be going all queasy. Take the paper out ever so slowly. Look at each grade one by one.

    My reaction will go either way. I could be shaking with happiness. Or I'll be in a minute of silence, if I don't get my grades. Hopefully it will be a shriek due to happiness. Then I'll look around my friends and adjust my feeelings accordingly.

    Then I'll take the same bus back home. This time hopefully it won't take too long.

    What that days holds for me, it's yet to be decided...
    This is brilliant, but also quite unnerving: probably my favourite post made on here so far... I really hope you get those 3 grades.

    Hoping for A*A*A*A* and S,1,1 in STEP I, II and III respectively. Although I will be pleased with anything above A*A*A in my A level results.

    Expecting A*A*A*A and 1,1,2 in STEP.

    I'll be on my computer waiting for midnight to arrive as this is when the STEP results are released. This will be the determinant of whether or not I get in to Cambridge so I'll be extremely nervous! Then I'll either be up all night worrying if I miss my offer or I'll be up all night due to excitement if I achieve my offer. Either way I'll be back to the computer at 6 refreshing the UCAS page until I find out if I've been accepted. It could then feel like a rather pointless journey to school if I've been declined, or I'll be running to school if my place is still undecided.

    Will be overjoyed at midnight if I achieve grade 1s in STEP 2 and STEP 3. Opening the actual A level results is unlikely to be as emotionally fuelled as I'll pretty much know my fate by then. I say this but my hands will probably be shaking too much to be able to open the envelope haha
