    Computing, but yeah i have an offer for A*A*A (maths, fm, chem) so we're just holding tight now haha.

    Great memory btw (considering I have no pp), how did your imperial app go?!
    oh right, sorry! i confused you with another user beginning with R (runner something? he was doing scottish highers so i assumed he'd know by now if he made his offer which is why i was asking )

    my offer was A*AAA with the A* in maths and AAA in physics, further maths and german, but i didn't firm it. i don't even know if i want to do mechanical engineering anymore so i'm going to either take a gap year and reapply for EEE/compsci or see what's available in adjustment in other places, depending on how much i've messed up my a-levels...how are you feeling about your offer - do you think you'll make it? imperial are so ridiculously high sometimes.. some chemistry people literally have an A*A*A* offer to meet!!

    btw, c3 ****ed me up monumetally so i've for sure missed the A* in maths and that limits my chances for loads of great unis which sucks but oh well..

    RIP to you if people in your year group get told to do an interview with the papers and you don't get a call up

    One last thing, do you think im going to be rejected or accepted by UoM? What are your expectations?
    I can't predict that. Even UoM might not be able to predict that right now.

    I can only assure you that they will not reject you unless they have no other option.

    If we are accepted into our firm, how many days do we actually have to tell them if we're going or not?

    For most you don't need to tell them, others they need you to confirm and others they only ask you to contact them if you aren't going. The dates differ but it will be in the letter UCAS send to you.

    I hope that there are many happy students on results day

    I feel like all my hard work will be wasted, as these AS exams don't count towards anything at least they'll give me an indication of what to improve on next year!!

    I'm sure you've put in enough effort to do as well as you want, don't stress too much (like me 😭). That's right, it will tell you how you're doing and what you need to work on. 👍🏾

    Yeah that's good, explore your options you don't want to be unhappy!

    And yeah imperial's offers are crazy, I deem A*A*A to be pretty low for compsci, 3 a levels and no step makes me fortunate. I'm relatively happy with my exams, fmaths went pretty well, core maths worries me because c3 was tragic and chem4 was equally if not more tragic but chem5 ok so I should be fine in chem.

    So basically I have no idea and need to see the GBs lol!!

    ps apply for compsci

    i can't bear to face any of my teachers. i'm literally legging it as soon as i get my envelope
    Depends on what Track says, but I'm the same! Last year I had teachers literally blocking my way out of the hall to try to stop me running out, but this year I shall have my technique perfected. ^_^

    Same the worst part about it is that it doesn't count towards our final A level. It would be nice to feel like all our hard work wasn't a waste and that half the battle is over

    i think my plan is this:
    6 - 8am: refresh track constantly until it updates and i know if i've made it or not
    8am onwards:
    - if i've made my firm offer, celebrate quietly at home and hold off collecting my results for as long as possible because 1. i know they still won't be as good as i want them to be, 2. i don't care because i got into university, 3. i don't want to face teachers/peers who are better than me so i'll wait til the crowds die down LMAO
    - if i've missed my offer, get my sorry ass to school ASAP to look for clearing spaces and see just how badly i ****ed up

    if i've missed my offer then i'll have to face my teachers and discuss what to do next with them, but if i've made it then i couldn't care less and that's my association with my school done forever lol

    The one about gender schema which was asked last year I think, purely because it was a real shock
    I didn't personally do the gender topic but it seems AQA shocked thousands in putting that in the paper with people saying they'd written hardly anything for that question and that loopa guy didn't see it coming and a hell of a lot of people look at his predictions

    Track automatically refreshes doesn't it? Constantly refreshing the page will slow down the site for other users.

    Constant refreshing won't help, there is no point logging in until 7 (office hours are t until 7:30 anyway so there is no chance they will update before then) and a check every 5 mins is more appropriate.

    I'm pretty sure it was social influences last year and gender schema theory in 2014. It was quite a big shock though as aqa in the past had always left 2 years between questions. if they were going to ask about cognitive theories I was certain it was going to be kohlberg so my answer turned out awful 😞

    I didn't actually bother learning that kolhberg essay, which was great cause they didn't ask it but knowing now about AQA repeating questions in the other units suggests that was a very risky idea :/
