    How have your Cambridge exams gone? Are they finished yet?

    Haven't done any yet and already feel like I'm going to miss my offer

    Problem is that last year there was zero expectation, whereas now I'm going through past papers thinking that if I don't get 90% or above I'm screwed.
    Haha yeah I know the feel. I've been way less motivated and hard-working this year but there's also more I need to do. Whoops...

    I've only had cells so far, it was alright. I finish on the 10th, at which point I'm aiming to overshoot LD50 for alcohol.

    I've only done one exam and I already want to puke thinking about results day, lol. Anybody else feeling like theirs have gone badly?
    Yep, 90% sure I'm missing my offer. Actually I'm not really that scared about it, it's pretty inevitable for me. Uncertainty causes fear.

    Almost makes me feel guilty for having an unconditional......

    You'll probably be fine. I tend to find there's a negative correlation between how well I think I did in an exam and my actual result.

    Hang in there. Cambridge clearly thinks you are more than capable, as do your teachers. You'll be fine

    Thanks for the kind words guys, but I'm still pretty sure I'll fail it. But I'm alright with that, easy insurance I'm happy to go to.
    Excellent job getting an unconditional, really jealous!

    Have you already sat your exams? As in, applying after completing A Levels?

    Yah.

    I'm on my gap year atm, but I have done some exams because I've been self-teaching AS economics and A-Level maths. I'm kind of thinking the former is probably a write off (I didn't really do any past papers or anything because for about two months I had a job in politics that literally required 16 hour days at points), but maths has gone well so far. Just C3 and C4 left now.

    Not being under any pressure is a massive luxury though.

    Physics went relatively badly (apart from the relativity question which was relatively okay).

    Already planning my transfer to some second rate university. I'm thinking about oxford at the moment.

    Can you actually transfer to Oxford in second year? (provided you did well enough)

    The rocket question was beautiful <3

    Fields was okay, I really ****ed up SHM and Quantum though.
