    High Stakes, can you add me to the list? A2: ABB

    Just what I need to get into my dream University/course so I'd be ecstatic!


    ... and this thread has just made me feel sooooo thick. My grades are crap compared to everyone else's, and I'm never going to get them! *cries*

    ABB isn't 'crap' by any means. They are good results

    They're not, compared to the A*A*A*A* that I've seen repeatedly on here, and it's unlikely I'll even get them *cries*

    Thank you and Bradford but since I am an international student, the competition is much higher :/

    Why don't you go to a much better uni which offers international places with standard offers like Warwick. I know a few PPE applicants from aborad who hold Warwick offers with standard grades.

    Any ideas on how to deal with this?

    Just had mocks and feel like i've done below par on all of them.

    My mum keeps pestering me to revise more but I feel like she doesnt actually understand that i cant sustain my focus for more than an hour since after an hour at home my brain gets bored(not good but i genuinely fall apart at this part).Moreover,I feel like the way she acts as if im the worst student in class and do nothing at home is just annoying since I actually do my homework at school and try to revise during my frees (theres no alternative anyway since i dont bring my phone to school and we have no common room) how do you suggest i deal with this?

    I feel like ive underperformed on my mocks partly due to the unpredictability of my tests.
    For instance my economics teacher tested us on three topics out of the entire unit which isnt a realistic representation of the actual exam by a long shot
    For english my actual exam practice has been limited by my teacher due to the focus on coursework texts so this exam was only my second attempt
    For Psychology i had to revise 16 essays only to have three of them actually come up.

    Now it seems as if my mum is treating this like my real performance in the exams which is really bugging me.I will admit I dont revise as much as I should but honestly I feel like i do work hard at school and i lack in exam practice...ugh Rant over I guess....this is why I hate mocks....
