    Well in Canada she was allowed to do them by having cassettes sent through the mail and recording her work on them too and sending it back along with doing the writing and other tests too, I doubt you can do it anymore though
    Aaah. I see! Haha, if only...

    Anyway, I'm sleeping now (tried sleeping at ten )

    Night-io peeps!

    Ah!
    I genuinely hope the best for all of you guys!
    I am generally stressed though it is Advanced Subsidiary I am awaiting and the process for Medical School Entry starts WAY earlier!

    I just hope someone blesses me with AAAA/AAAB at AS!
    If my predictions of all modules were right, I am on my way...
    I JUST HOPE IT SHINES THROUGH!

    It just never ends...
    How important was your AS progress for your expected results this year!?

    Thanks, you too! Well, my AS grades helped the teachers predict me better A2 grades. Usually, you can convince them to predict you one grade up. If it wasn't for my AS grades, I wouldn'tve gotten good predicted grades as I messed up on my GCSE. And if I didn't have good predicted grades, I probably wouldn't have gotten my uni offers.

    But don't worry, you can always re-sit. And if your teacher thinks you have potential, they can always predict you a better grade than you got in AS. Good luck!

    Thank you, extremely!
    You have reassured me about how it's done...

    Re-sits aren't an ideal option tbh; I am hoping for strong UMS to show the grounded academic capability...
    This is Medical School were talking about... Tbh!?
    As it goes from most degrees now as the era tranforms.

    I hope that I can get 2 A* predictions; I want to apply for Cambridge by the way but for all other options, an A* would be nice to stand out with!

    Thursday is pretty much a stepping stone for most of our careers...
    No matter what, you'll know your progress there and THEN.

    Not talking about medical school, I'm afraid. I applied for Law. An A* would definitely look good and if you have an A* you would have no trouble getting your teachers to predict an A* in that subject. Also, get some work experience during the holidays if you're going into medicine. I've heard that field is extremely competitive.

    Me too. I am so bored this summer. If I am being completely honest, results day is currently my only motivation to live. The anticipation and the "make-or-break" moment would add a little bit of spice into my life. After that, (if it goes well), I can relax and start researching my firm uni in-detail. Or my insurance uni. But I'm gonna try and avoid my insurance uni and get into another one through clearing.

    Don't worry about that!
    I have loads now...
    Complete bundles that cannot be rammed in a personal statement but has improved my intellectual potential by streams and streams...

    Wo, Law!?
    Much. More. Competitive. Than. Medicine.
    Fact!

    All I need is steady UMS with good predictions!

    Lets see!
    How was your progress of application!?

    It's nice going into the A2 exams knowing you've already got X amount of UMS from AS, and most teachers use your AS results when predicting A2 results. If you aren't happy with your predictions you can always talk to your teachers and negotiate them. But depending where you apply, some unis don't put that much emphasis on AS - e.g. Oxford put more emphasis on GCSE than AS, Cambridge is the reverse. good luck

    That's something I have based my choices...
    Ridiculous as it sounds, i don't think GCSEs of 3A*s and 9As might be enough for Oxford, fo'sure!

    Cambridge is much better for me, anyway!

    Ah...
    We'll see!
    Enough about Oxbridge...
    I don't want to come across all "elite" when I'm hardly so...
    😯😧

    Thanks for the luck!
    How did you examinations go!?

    Yeah, I also don't think I failed really badly. But apart from that, I have no idea how it went. Anyway, good luck!
