    Okay, I take my previous post back. It seems that Oxford do in fact update track on the day..
    I've been trawling through the results day thread from last year, and a few people had said that their track had updated around 6:30, so we will be able to check!

    Usually, I think. At least, there didn't seem to be any waiting after my AQA Computing exam

    How did you both find your exams? So happy they're done, but don't want to think about results yet.
    There was a range of feelings :P

    Ethics & Philosophy: Only needed a C in the exam to get an A overall, and it was an ideal paper, so I know I've got an A and I'm hoping for an A*!

    Geography: One paper was really easy and seemed like a general studies exam, but because of the nature of the exam you couldn't do any past papers so although I thought it was easy and I wrote loads, I can't be sure of what the mark scheme wanted, but im optimistic. My other geography exam wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't a great paper. I'm semi-optimistic that Im gonna get my A overall!

    Maths: DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT MATHS. If I managed to get my A in maths, its going to be due to low grade boundaries, and with exact UMS for an A :P So its a major worrier

    But overall I'm hoping for the best. If I don't get in, well, i'll probably weep for a month, but eventually pull myself together :P

    How did exams go for you?

    At least it means I will know where I stand before I go into school t 10am, and if necessary, will be emotionally prepared to face disappointment in front of my friends.

    Although in reality, I'll just cry regardless of what happens on results day.

    I just expect to fail utterly each year, so I'm never disappointed

    Brilliant philosophy, one adopted by me frequently although never before has anything ACTUALLY depended on me not failing (and by failing, I mean getting c. BCD in my exams this year to average AAA).

    I don't think I'll get any sleep that night - I may not bother, and just stay up waiting for Track to open up. TSR will provide me with plenty of company, I expect

    I sat working out UMS scores and grade boundaries for a long while, before emerging with a grin shouting BBC!

    I kept on doing that as a form of procrastination to make me feel better...although I think it ended up meaning that I just wasn't particularly motivated.

    Same here! The weakness of the AS I think, makes you panic if you need a lot and become overconfident if you don't need much. If you didn't know what you needed you would work more steadily I think, I know I would!

    Our school told us that this year the UCAS system has changed, and Track will only be updated "in the middle of the day", i.e. around lunchtime on Results Day? That's for all universities.
