    You'll make friends, I promise. The only friends who I'm still in contact with from Sixth Form are people who were externals (I went to the same school that the Sixth Form was part of).
    I make friends pretty easily thanks to NCS, summer schools, volunteering, etc. but it's pretty daunting because it's two train rides away!

    I'm hoping to get a mix of A's and B's, however the papers were a bit weird and I don't think I did enough revision. So I'm hopping that I can scrape a pass in some subjects.

    Hi everyone!
    I'm new to this thread and I'm dreading results day even though I won't get mine until the 30th August (I'm on holiday and they'll be sent to my house so that I can open them then!)
    Just wondering if anyone on this thread did any WJEC exams?
    Good luck everyone, I'm sure we've all done well
    Pretty much all of my exams were WJEC.
    Even though I don't live in Wales

    I also messed up geography unit 1, which is really annoying as that was one I was hoping to do well on.

    Perhaps don't open your results in front of anyone, I'm certainly not going to open up my results in front of friends!

    Yeah it was aqa, I think unit 2 was a bit better than paper 1. But to be fair I did struggle with both!

    Strangely enough, everyone I know has been getting the best results this year and last year when the weather has been awful (rain etc.)

    Good news,
    it is raining on Thursday
    That is a good sign for GCSE results.
