    It's probably nowhere near as bad as you think - don't loose all hope until you get the results. I had similar doubts about sociology when I did my A2 exams, nearly ran out of time (never happens to me), strange questions etc etc but was pleasantly surprised come results day. Try to stay positive - it's not over yet!

    Okay, so I wasn't overly nervous about results until today - my college called and said they might want me to be interviewed by a news channel on the day showing my results. And there's a very good chance I've got a U in one of my subjects, and my driving test is the day before results...somebody kill me now...

    Whoa, if your college thinks you've got good enough results to be on TV, you probably have

    Its so easy to over panic before results, but trust me the worrying isnt going to change anything, most people think they have done terribly and i really hope on results day your grades are what you wanted and more (im sure they will be). Xx

    No not yet, unis receive your results the weekend before results day, the schools have access to them the day before results day.

    i was always so sure i'd check track before my results, but now i'm thinking otherwise. if i check my results and see that i've missed my offer then i'll be better prepared to face the rejection on track than to log into track in the morning and just feel my heart sink and stay there for the rest of the month :/ and i'll already have an accurate-ish estimate of my grades from the day before when grade boundaries are released because 3 of my subjects are maths/science and i know roughly how many marks i have for every exam i took, so i'll be much more curious to see if my predictions were correct..idk what to do

    Always check track first. If you've met your offer, then you can celebrate and not worry about your results. However, if you've been unsuccessful with both your choices, you can sort out clearing a lot quicker. Also, if your firm reads as still conditional, you can ring them up to persuade them to still take you

    If I were you I'd check track first

    If you narrowly miss your offer when you check your results BEFORE track, you'll still be nervously waiting to check track in hopes that whoever has still taken you. And that's just more worrying.

    Get your uni decision out of the way, and if it doesn't go to plan then look at your results and just focus on them, so you can be thinking of what you need to do next (remarking, calling them up or w/e)

    Clearing places for scottish students at scottish universities are a LOT more restricted than clearing places for RUK students at scottish universities. Because their fees are subsidised heavily by the scottish government the places are severely restricted for scottish students (but not for students from England/Wales/NI where the fees cover most of the costs)
    Ooo, that makes me feel slightly better I guess .. :dontknow:

    Yeah dog eat dog world 😂😂

    (Original post by lucabrasi98)
    This is my fear and I'm not even applying to a Scottish uni. I imagine it's a way worse for you.

    But I'll still be checking 10x a day to make sure my course is still in clearing. If it goes then I'll know it's gg for me.
    My course atm is still in clearing ... for now...I dare say.

    I'm very intrigued about the A2 boundaries for sociology given how many seemed to dislike scly4

    Oh the memories 😭😭 flashbacks to SCLY4 paper rn.. what an awful awful experience that was not only was the questions awful, but due to personal issues I wasn't in much and my teacher who was so poor at teaching she's on review at my college delibrately refused to give me the material for SCLY4 when I was in hospital having surgery 2 months before the exam

    I loved SCLY3.. hoping I get a very very high grade for that exam so it can kinda average it out but I'm not banking on it. Need a C overall for uni but that's not going to happen. Didn't write ANYTHING and I mean anything for the SCLY4 exam..

    Getting a call from school saying they want you to come early for an interview / media / report is a good sign, atleast i'd think...

    At this point its a good sign that they have very high hopes in you, but because schools dont have results at the minute (until the day before results) it isnt based on any fact, they are just hopeful for you, its a great compliment!
