    I was so happy to see the questions I did. However the fact that I'm feeling happy about the exam makes me think I've actually got a C because 99% of the time when I'm feeling confident I've done worse than I think. Or maybe I'm just overthinking it. Looking back I could have done better on the 9 and 33 markers... argh I don't know!

    One, just one! Then I am finished with A-Levels which will feel so good to say after 3 years! What about you?
    I know the feeling! I feel as though the majority of my exams have gone well, but last year I felt the opposite and did well! Ugh... This year is so much more important too. A 33 mark question? That's a weird number!

    I have two left! Chem 5 and biology 5 this week, then I have a nice 3 months off. Hurrah. I need it!

    Are you AS or A2? A2
    AS grades - AACCC
    A2 predictions - AAA (I need AAB for University)
    What subjects are you taking? OCR Biology, AQA Chemistry and AQA Mathematics
    How are your exams going? My Biology exams have gone reasonably well (I had to retake both exams from last year as I got 1 off a B!), CHEM 4 seem alright and I feel okay about CHEM 5 on Wednesday. However, the C3 and C4 exams for Maths were horrible! S1 was good though...
    To which university are you hoping to go to? King's College London
    To study what? Pharmacology and Molecular Genetics
    How are you feeling about results day? I feel a bit nervous as I actually fly back from my holiday on the evening of the 18th so my parents will have to collect my results! Hasn't completely sunk in yet though, I still have 3 exams to finish!

    If it helps I thought AQA C4 was horrible as well! I didn't find C3 too bad, but I think I'm in denial. :laugh:

    I didn't finish either paper so I'm quite worried! They were both so much harder than the previous years which was unfair!

    I guess we'll find out... Less than 60 days now! I know, last year I would have been ecstatic to get BCC but now I NEED ABB. Yeah I know 😂 I mean why couldn't they make it 30 or 35?

    Oooh good luck to both! My firm actually starts in less than 3 months now! I don't think it will hit me until Results Day though because I can't let myself look forward to it yet.
