    What are everyone's plans if you miss your offers? Resits? Gap year? Clearing? Closing your eyes and hoping all your problems will disappear?
    Definitely the latter!
    In all seriousness, I'll probably go into clearing and do biomed then GEM... let's hope it doesn't come to that though

    is it ?!

    Because the statistics in first year of civil eng I've already done as part of further maths, I'd stay a year ahead of the uni syllabus and I find it very interesting and relevant to what I want to do in the future.
    Yeah, the current English and maths specs end next year iirc and the year after is then A2 resits only.

    And it'll be a lot of work considering it won't really count for muxh after your degree

    Yeah I was convinced it was the subject I was gonna drop last year because I'd done so badly, and when I found out this exam was closed book.. :bricks: 11 days is nothing compared to the 2 years we've all stuggled with A-Levels so hopefully the time will fly.
    Ah I see I officially signed up for Creative Writing, but it got cancelled as hardly anyone wanted to do it, so I chose Lit instead Oh god yes I was the same, I initially thought 'Oh I can do this!' and then I saw it.... Quotations :rofl: Oh god I really hope so! I need it just to be over!

    I'm going to call them up tomorrow and see

    I've actually almost finished learning S3. I've had a gap year and stuff so am feeling fairly (though not stupidly) confident on the work load

    Hey Ya'll!
    I am waiting for my AS results, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, and Sociology.
    I REALLY want to go to The University of Birmingham in 2017 to study Law with Criminology. The offer is usually AAA but because I got an A* in my EPQ, the offer should be AAB. I'm not sure what my predicted grades are as they are dependent on my AS results! All of my exams went really well except for Chemistry which I am most definite I got a U! I am sooooo excited for results day, i'm not sure why!

    Good Luck everyone!!!

    • Are you AS or A2?
    • What subjects are you taking?
    • To which university are you hoping to go?
    • To study which subject?
    • If applicable, what were your AS grades?
    • What grades are required for your desired degree?
    • What grades are you predicted?
    • How did your exams go?
    • How are you feeling about results day?
    • Anything else to add?

    Hey everyone!

    I am waiting for my AS results.
    I'm currently studying English Lit, Philosophy and Psychology.
    I adore St. Andrews!
    I'm trying to choose between philosophy, psychology or a foundation medical course.
    Usually AAB - BBB dependent
    I don't have predicted grades, we have minimum target grades, of which I am expected to get at least BBB or higher.
    It was pretty horrific, and I am trying to forget the horrible exam experiences I had.
    I am extremely nervous about results day, as if I get below a certain grade, it is likely I will be kicked out (college policy).

    Hard work does pay off eventually, even if it doesn't seem like it at the time.

    Yeah I picked it because 1. Our school is dodgy with the subject combos we can pick so it was either that or Physics and 2. I thought the coursework was creative writing where you write in the style of the author which sounded great but apparently our school doesn't do that

    Try looking into A2B as well, if you're eligible you'll get a 2 grade reduction so you might be looking at ABB/BBB which would be great for you.

    Hopefully it does, it's so frustrating that it isn't so obvious right now. I hope your hard work does pay off too!

    Isn't it stupid that I keep seeing things as superstitions to the grades I may achieve, if you know what I mean? Like I ask others what they think I may get and then believe that'll be the grades I will get because I can tell from their face expressions.

    Ah I see what you mean, I was thinking either Lit or Psychology and god am i glad that I didn't choose Psychology! :rofl: Creative Writing was 60% coursework... I had an amazing few lessons in that course, and tbh i was upset when they cancelled it! I also wish to be an author, so writing is a passion of mine It does sound good Oh, that's not very good.

    Psychology isn't too bad tbh, you just need a good memory and be willing to put in the effort, I don't think it's a subject that just comes naturally like maths. 60% coursework sounds like heaven. Ooh an author sounds great, full time? Also what are you doing at uni?

    Hey guys! Do you think checking UCAS before getting your results is better or the other way round? Some people said its more scary checking UCAS first but surely you'd be quickly relieved to find that you've either not gotten your results or you have. Also what if you missed one grade off your offer but then you go onto UCAS to find that your uni has offered you a place anyway? All that heart sinking sh** feeling or nothing! Just a thought.

    I'm feeling sick just thinking of that Thursday urgh

    Anyone else awaiting AQA chemistry, AQA physics, MEI maths or MEI further maths??

    That CHEM4 will have the most beautiful grade boundaries with any luck...
    I think it will be around 80 or even the high 70s for an A* so considerably lower than usual!

    It isn't, no, but so many of my friends worked their butts off and didn't do very well :/ Oh it certainly doesn't, but in my case, neither is maths :rofl: It does indeed, that's one of the main reasons as to why I chose to do it! Nah, I wanted to do it as a side thing... sort of like a stress reliever I'm hopefully doing Primary Education with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) at Bishop Grosseteste

    Definitely check Track first. That way you know what your situation is. If you check your grades first and have missed out by one grade, you'll have a horrible time worrying about whether you've still got into your firm choice.
