    Yeah, I firmed an offer from a more highly ranked university. It was cerainly risky and I still believe I made the right decision, although it's becoming increasingly difficult to accept that. Thank you for that, I'm sure you are too
    I'm (hopefully) starting law in September too - I'm guessing you are too from the gavel in your picture. May I ask which uni you firmed?

    Yes, well spotted! Good choice I firmed Durham, what about you?

    Don't worry for worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.

    Honestly, what will be will be. Worrying yourself sick will change nothing, all our fates will be sealed by now. Try to stop thinking of it by occupying your wandering mind with something. :yes:

    I was terrible before nearly all of my exams. Must've had about 3 or 4 hours of sleep the nights prior. Exercise and not revising anywhere near sleeping time are essential in my view.

    Piriton is amazing for making you drowzy enough for a good night's sleep (well I find it is).

    My OH uses natrasleep or 5HTP.

    A bit of chemical assistance to get the sleep you need when your brain is working against you is fine.

    Or alternatively I find listening to the radio on a low volume is often enough to distract me but not engage me so I can drop off (radio 4 Gardeners Question Time is my favourite at the moment - it's not boring but it's not exciting enough to keep me awake so with a dark room and 45 minutes I'll usually be gone before it finishes).

    I've known some people who swear by listening to ASMR videos to get them to sleep - might be worth a try if it's getting to be an issue.
    Hi thank you both for such a thorough response, I appreciate it! I have tried the typical YouTube 'insomnia videos' but to no avail - many thanks for the piriton recommendation, I'll definitely tell my mam to get some ASAP. I'm usually fine with results but these results mean a lot more than anything I've received in the past. Despite knowing worrying isn't going to change my results, I just can't help reliving every exam on an evening - ugh. Not long to go I guess.

    Cheers!

    Nope. They'll get them the weekend before results.

    That will be the university updating their entry requirements for 2017 applicants.
    Good job I'm a year early 😂

    Yeah, I applied to 3 BMAT Unis, got 9.0, 4.5, 2A and still got 4 pre-interview rejections

    Better luck next time I suppose! (Although a couple from my school got into Imperial and Newcastle by ringing up on Reuslts Day with 2A*+). If pigs might fly, that might happen to me as well!

    Doesn't really help that Cambridge is bloody gorgeous does it?

    I follow a twitter account that posts pics of the different colleges etc and I see them every time I scroll down my feed

    It's like torture ;_;
    Can so relate to this!!! My heart is set on Cambridge but I feel convinced I've missed my offer 😭

    This poll shows exactly how unrepresentative TSR is as a measure of the total population. Considering C is the average

    Chemical engineering at Fitzwilliam, I was likewise surprised to receive an offer. How about you?? 😄 Probably a silly question but do you think there is a any chance they would be lenient 😬

    Honestly, I'll go mad if I don't meet my offer, literally all the work I've done for the past 2-3 years was to get there :cry2:

    It's so beautiful though, so much of an upgrade from the miserable little town I live in.

    English at Murray Edwards - I'm not sure - there's always one or two people that are lucky each year but it's so difficult to predict 😬 the best of luck to you!

    I'm genuinely hoping that my interview scores are high and my background is bad enough for them to let me in with A*AA :cry2:
    But in reality, they over offer and expect people to miss them. It'll be so awful if I miss mine

    I'm sorry man I was actually in a very similar position to you in Year 13 - I too applied to 3 BMAT Uni's and got 4 pre-interview rejections (but I didn't get a 9 - congrats!). I reapplied and am happy at Imperial now though so I'm sure it'll end up working out for you.

    I tried my luck at calling up Med Schools on results day but to no avail. Are you going to reapply next year?*
