    Are you AS or A2?
    A2
    What subjects are you taking?
    Maths, Computing and Chemistry
    How are exams going?
    I've sat 6 so far. I've got a disturbing good/meh pattern emerging.
    To which university are you hoping to go?
    York!
    To study which subject?
    Computer Science
    How are you feeling about results day?
    Mixed. I need ABB and my predicted grades are AAB. I'm not sitting on amazing AS results (CCC) and I'm a third year student after dropping out part way through last year, so some of my exams this year are resits. I'm pretty confident about Computing (which would be my A), but Maths and Chemistry have thrown me. Chemistry is my weak subject so I've been hammering revision for it and exams have gone alright. Maths exams, which I'm normally quite capable in, haven't been the nicest in recent years and the C3 exam I did yesterday most people hated, my college have even appealed for lower grade boundaries because they believe it was the hardest in recent memory! I found it okay, though and am hoping for at least a B in Maths overall. At the moment I'm concerned I may get A*BC or ABC instead of the ABB I need, and my offer doesn't include equivalent grades. :bricks:

    Edit: Well C4 was horrific for me, wish I could have done more past papers, but ah well. The joys of having 10+ exams over 3 weeks. Bye bye York.

    Anything else to add?
    Good luck everyone, can't wait to read about how everybody got on in 60+ days time!

    For the A2 people, are you going to get your results or check track first?

    I'm getting my results first, I can't bear the thought of going on UCAS

    Track, for one if I go to results day and find that I've missed my grades I'd be so panicked but if I know what is happeneing first I'll know exactly what to do.

    Are you AS or A2?

    -AS

    What subjects are you taking?

    - Biology, Chemistry, Maths & German.

    How are exams going?/How did they go?

    -German was 'eh'. Wouldn't expect anything higher than a B. Maths was terrible, hated every exam. Screw you edexcel. Haven't done my mocks for Biology and Chemistry yet though.

    To which university are you hoping to go?

    -Whichever one accepts me, don't mind as of yet.

    To study which subject?

    -Medicine. Which seems a bit too far fetched atm.

    What grades are required?

    -Ranging from around A*A*A to AAA. Lower if I want to go to an extended medical course.

    What grades are you predicted?

    -Predicting myself around 2A's, 1B, & 1C. If I'm unlucky then 3B's and 1C.

    How are you feeling about results day?

    -lol

    When I was in AS I was absolutely adamant that on my A2 Results Day I would be getting my results first.

    Now? Definitely checking Track the second it opens 😂

    I'm definitely checking track first! Especially considering how Core 4 went. Trying to get 100 UMS in my Decision resit to make up for it. :cry2: My results are online from 6am and, if I miss a grade and magically get accepted anyway, I don't want to spend an hour and a half in tears when there may still be a small chance I'm in.

    I didn't have an offer when I applied so never had to decide between results first vs track first. If I were to go through it again though with an offer, I think I'd check Track first.

    Track always officially goes live at 8. That's the published time.

    UCAS will soft launch it at 7.30 to reduce peak loading their systems though.

    With my luck though I'll be one of the people whose Track doesn't update 😢

    I'm okay thanks, apart from the fact that after the Film exams I'm 80% sure I'm not going to get my firm and I have an exam tomorrow that I'm nowhere near ready for how have you been?
