    Im hoping thats the case! I know people who did gender struggled in Unit 3 and in unit 4 majority who did schizophrenia didnt learn biological ( i did thankfully) and addiction threw many i only really struggled on Sleep in unit 3 and research methods in unit 4.

    So scared for august haha 😣😣😂
    ah yeh I know because for gender they basically repeated a question that has been asked twice before, and I do schizophrenia and basically my teacher was adamant that its going to be classification issues for the essay and so everyone made sure they knew that one, but then in the real exam they went and repeated the bio therapies one and I think lots of people would've written generic points like ' it has side effects, and are easy to use ect' and won't reach the higher marks as they didn't bother learning it. luckily i did learn all the essays so hopefully me and yourself will get good results ahah !

    What subjects are you taking? = French, Geography, Travel and Tourism and Economics
    To which university are you hoping to go? = List of 7 so far (Birmingham, Cardiff, East Anglia, Leicester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Swansea)
    To study which subject? = Modern Languages and Translation (French and Spanish)
    What grades are required for your desired degree? = AAB-BBB
    What grades are you predicted? ABBB
    How did your exams go? =
    French
    Travel and Tourism Economics went much better than I was expecting
    Geography
    How are you feeling about results day? = I actually don't know, quite a few feelings:
    - I'm hoping that when I get my results, I will be more clearer on which subject I should drop, its between Geography and Economics
    - Nervous, because if I do badly now, I'm never going to do well at A2 and I'll never go to uni
    - Awkwardness because many people didn't do actual exams, yet I had to sit all 4 externally, so I have to get my results with year 13s

    Enlighten me! What's it called?
    Continuum. Basically there's a gang who travels into the past to try and stop what happens in the future but they overshoot and end up in 2012 instead of 2071. This cop also comes with them on accident and she knows what they're trying to do and she's got to stop them without anyone knowing they're from the future.

    I'm not doing it much justice but it's great

    Yes thats what im hoping for 😃 i think schizophrenia was the easiest out of all i did, well on par with relationships.
    Was able to give a clear structure and good evaluation i did put things about easiness and side effects but i explained them in detail, i had that much time left as i get extra time (dyslexic) that i even added a little about diagnostic issues and related them to drug therapy etc and had a few on ECT (old method) etc i really liked it😂😂

    Good luck for results day!!!😄

    I really want to get AAA as a minimum. I don't think I'll get an A* in anything but I would be more annoyed if I got A*A*B than AAA.

    Im sure you will be fine! Im the opposite i think psychology will be my lowest grade, thinking ill get a B i want an A but i doubt it very much.

    I intend to study History at Lancaster (AAB) but otherwise ill get into lincoln, if i dont get a B in psychology i dont deserve to go to Lancaster 😂!

    How about you?

    Well I'm in a bit of s sticky situation cause I need AAA for my firm ( Nottingham ) and my insurance ( Manchester ) so basically either I get in or I'm going to clearing hahaha fml - Perhaps you might just scrape an A if the boundaries go down enough
