    hahaha true but I can't help but feel that I'm going to learn the hard way why putting a firm and insurance choice asking for the same grades is a bad idea ... just praying one of them lets me in with lower grades or I'm gonna be picking some random course come results day
    40% of people who got into their firm missed by 2 grades, a majority missed by at least 1 (one would assume close to 70%) so you shouldn't be worried!!!

    I don't feel that particularly confident with Economics and History. The new spec for Edexcel Economics completely messed me up 😫😫

    I'd convinced myself I was getting AAAA but got AAAB and was in a pretty bad mood for the rest of that day ....

    Now I've convinced myself I'm getting AAA so anything less I'll be gutted :/

    I'm so worried about how I did, I didn't think the exams were easy but I didn't think they were too hard either, so I have no idea what result I'm going to get 😳. Only aiming for a C though 😂

    Yeah I think F334 and 5 were on the harder side maybe. I'm hoping the boundaries for them are the same as last year. What do you think the boundaries will be like? I'm hoping for a B.

    Haha I laughed when I saw a D in Unit 1 English Lit
    But I was actually in tears of happiness when I saw my Bio, Chem and Maths UMS...

    Then I felt depressed for the rest of the day because my mum kept shouting at me for getting good enough grades to apply to Cambridge.

    Ah I did biology, chemistry and maths with WJEC. How did you find biol? I didn't like by4 tbh, by5 wasn't too bad considering how little revision I've done for it

    Well I did a tonne of revision for BY4 so I found it okay, and I was very unprepared for BY5 bc I was busy revising for other things. All things considered though I think it went better than it could have
