    3 days and 9 hours till I get my results. That's 81 hours. Which is a square number. Which means we're another milestone closer to finding out. Oh god. Before we know it, it'll only be 64 hours!

    Usually the standard application process reveals them. And I think those smart people wouldn't make a huge deal of being that smart - usually because they don't know it, until an interviewer finds out.
    oo that sounds interesting, must be a nice surprise for the candidate then :cool:

    OK I have a question about AQA geography. I have just done the AS exam and an A is 63% which to me is really low. Is this the same for the A2 or is it much higher?
    It is kind of low at A2 - an A in the 40 mark essay was something crazy like 24 at one point!

    Does anyone know why universities will sometimes reduce the offer for certain people? E.G. A course that requires AAB will be offered to someone for ABB?

    They're contextualized offers which take into account the background of the applicant e.g. low-income family, poorly performing school

    I had my first memorable results dream, but I never actually got my results. I dreamt I was at school at 8am on the dot, which required getting up at 6am and I was pissed off and speed walking because I wanted to be in and out. As I was making my way to the office to get my results, a big ass snake landed around my neck, and I was like... I haven't got time for this! The snake was staring me in the eyeballs, and daring me to scream. I think it may have been a python? It was yellow and white with black eyes and long and heavy. So I took it off me and placed it on the floor while still watching it, then I backed up towards the entrance of myschool only to back up against a wall of scales. It was the same snake but only like, 20ft tall and huge and wide, and I was trying not to look at it. I was still maintaining eye contact with the first snake while inching around the other snake. Then I backed up slowly until I was safe, then ran out the school without getting my results :/

    Tbh, I'm now at the point where I'm hoping the colour of my skin will help get me into my firm uni, since they were bragging about diversity but when I went to the open day, me and my mum were the only black people there :eek:. Also, my firm has like 70% girls and 30% boys, so if I was a guy then I'm basically set. I also want the fact that I'm so far doing a creative degree which I haven't seen anyone else doing, to factor into their decision, but honestly, my predicted grades were BCC and they want BBC which I know I can get, but I'm not going to stop worrying since this is a life changing period and I want to give results day the fear it deserves.

    My mum is freaking me out though. I expressed my fears to her about results day, and she told me that I'm going to my firm uni, she has seen it in my future and I don't need to worry about a thing... Which of course made me wonder if she had connections I don't know about or if she's about to pull something out of her sleeve which would get me into my firm o.O

    5 people in my year got unconditionals for Birmingham university this year for economics!
    I think Birmingham are doing unconditionals this year to make their offer more appealing --> attracting more students to put them as firm
