    I got AAB at AS and i really don't know whether my business teacher will give me an A* prediction, like I'm top of the year in this subject, but i did poor on unit 1 but got practically full marks on unit 2. I just hope he looks beyond my exam performance and looks at the straight 100% I achieved all year . What grade predictions are you needing?

    If anyone can do it, you can



    Ooh, good luck for your UKCAT!
    I think seeing everyone will be one of the highlights
    True that, I wish I went to a school in which everyone lives locally, only seen like 5 friends this summer as they are the only ones who live in like a 5-10 mile radius

    I'm starting tomorrow bright and early with a meeting with my head of sixth form about which subject I'm actually dropping and how annoyed my family is about them messing me around with what I can and can't drop...

    Should be fun!
    Good luck , what subject are you wanting to drop?

    Me too, need A*A*AA at least... hopefully better but my teachers are so strict about predictions doubt they would budge if they have already predicted me an A And going to try and see uni applications as a fun journey, a new start etc maybe if I say it enough the stress will go away

    It's exciting, because you know that wherever you go will be your home for 3/4 years, and new opportunities will pop up from that!

    I want high predicted grades because it really motivates me, but i think I'm going to be predicted AAA (Don't get me wrong they're good predictions), but I'm applying to do law and this is basically the bare minimum entry requirements.

    But I'm really excited where ever i go, i can't wait for the freedom

    IKR it is mad and some unis are even worse (I think bristol had like 1 acceptance for every 17 applications last year). I hope not either, need all the hope I can get Though If I do not get in first time, decided I will take a gap year (if I get good A2 results) do loads of work experience, make the perfect PS etc and try again. If I am rejected AGAIN then I think the medicine dream is over and I will just take my 5th choice

    Good luck , what subject are you wanting to drop?
    Ah thanks! I did want to drop Chinese because it's my worst grade but they said it has to be either English or RS (I decided to drop RS) because they don't work together on the timetable... As you can imagine I'm quite annoyed since I'm not sure if I can do well enough in Chinese but that's the way it is!

    Really not looking forward to going back tomorrow
    Something tells me that I won't be keeping my empty Thursday's (aka the only day I could actually sit and do work without the interruption of lessons or people).

    I'm going to go to my head of sixth tomorrow and see if she'll let me drop my EPQ. I've tried writing it but it's just going nowhere - I've made the effort at least and can provide my essay if she questions my reasoning (honestly this essay is worse than my classics exam).

    Not to mention this is going to be an awful term of sorting out UCAS/Personal Statements - my tutor has me down as BCC on predictions yet on my report I'm predicted ABB so I'm going to have to talk to her about changing that BCC to the ABB, plus my classics teacher has me predicted as a B and my law teacher has me predicted at as an A/A* (sorting that this week hopefully).

    Ah, the stress is kicking in all ready
