    Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster in the hopes that yall can calm my nerves. Thing is, being asian and having lots of asian friends means that all day every day for the past month this has been the only point of discussion between both friends and family (not saying other ethnicities arent pressured, im sure they are, but in my experience the more severe pressure is from asian households). The past week has been the most rough, with it getting to the point where i walked out of the gym because i couldnt stop thinking about results day. My biggest fear is obviously failure, and the repurcussions with university of GCSEs. I am planning to do economics at an rg uni, but with bad results, that maybe over. But anyway, hows everyone else coping?

    oh, technically...
    tomorrow is the day before results day
    *lowkey freaks out*

    I have to start prepping what I'm going to wear + bring
    I already have the whole day planned out: wake up at 7, get ready, head out at 9, meet my friends half an hour earlier to discuss and stay calm, collect them then go back home do a skype chat with my brother and then go to college for enrolment at 3pm
    suddenly it's so close nooo

    I'm more nervous about some examiner marking my papers wrong than I am about whether I got my grades bc I know I definetly have what I need for life

    in the meantime I'm going to do things that make me happy, and I suggest you try this too: have a healthy breakfast (or not healthy if it makes if that's your thing) talk to friends, play video games, draw some more ect

    Same here! Maybe Cambride is aiming a bit high for me though😂
    You mentioned having all A's and A*'s and obviously this is a trend in medicine, but I was forced to take GCSE PE- everyone in my year group had to- and despite my objections wasn't allowed to drop it to save myself from a poor grade. I think I got like a D in practical (oh god) but had got A*'s in my theory tests, but they were only worth 40%, and my teacher told me I could get a B if I got around an A/A* in the exam or an A if I got almost full marks, which most likely would never happen as I barely revised PE- much better things to revise for!
    So yeah this is actually worrying me a little bit now, to think that my A/A* profile will be frowned upon when they see the B from this awful subject I didn't even want to do!
    Mate I am in the same boat as you. PE is so easy I can get an A* in the exam without trying it's just that I did soooo bad in the practical. I'm pretty certain I will have an A overall 😰 But reaaaly hoping for an A* (unlikely since I need pretty much 100%) Are you on EDEXCEL?

    I'm not sure, probably get at least an A in them, but they were more difficult than past years, especially physics

    I really want some good grades on Thursday, like if I got 1 A, I would probably cry from happiness because I don't have high hopes for Thursday. Let's just hope I can get that A!
    Good luck, I'm betting on multiple A's! :borat:
