    Why not first fix the laughable state of comprehensive schools, and then make schools for people lucky enough to get into them?
    That would be ideal. Trouble is, comprehensive schools won't be fixed, because austerity, bureaucracy and privatisation.

    So I've managed to keep my mind off of results by keeping busy for the last few weeks, but now I have an empty week... any ideas to stop me spiralling into a bottomless pit of despair?
    Sure

    I've customised this list for your username

    Learn maths/programming, its so interesting you will forget entirely about results day
    Binge watch David Attenborough documentaries, get nightmares about insects rather than results day
    Bake cakes for money, get arrested for not having a permit, spend the week in jail, where you will forget about results day as you try to avoid picking up the soap
    Travel to the Calais Jungle and donate more than you bargained for
    Break a leg, spend the week in hospital, worried more about catching a superbug than results
    Kill someone and spend the week on the run

    Binge watch a TV show
    (Original post by Serine Soul)
    Watch a TV show called 'Versailles'. It's very good, though a bit OTT on the raunchiness
    Thanks, I'll have a look!

    I might actually try to learn some programming, I did some a couple of years ago but I've forgotten most of it and it would be good prep for if I take Intro to CompSci...

    So it doesn't make sense to appeal STEP (?)

    (Original post by jneill)
    He's talking about STEP not A2. The colleges receive the full scripts for STEP anyway.

    Well Zacken said appeals were rare, and I'd think one reason is because the college has the script so they could see any marking problems themselves.

    But the fact ATS does allow appeals means that option is ultimately available if necessary.

    Just came to wish you a good luck before results day. Gonna stalk you all (several weeks before results day I know I know).
    Do not stress and stay positive (I mean your charge should be neutral in your cell except the Na- and K+ because of membrane permeability and the slightly negative DNA and neuron potential of -70 mV. What I want to stay is that you should stay neutrally positive in your mind) Sorry I have OCD. I had to say this

    What does OCD have to do with this? I thought it was just a pretty good (well not too understandable to myself but) bio joke lol
    Anyway thank you, and good luck to you too

    I do not have OCD. I am joking
    I am just weird and sometimes I have an epiphany when I mention something and that leads to a scientific explanation because I do not want to be misunderstood.

    Now the mention of a potato is reminding me of the suppressed unpleasant memory of PHYA1.

    Can you think of any mathematics terms that sound like names? Need to get a cooler surname for when I'm publishing papers.

    Apparently Beta is a great name, from what I've seen on TSR threads
