    Oh definitely! I'm buzzin! Bring it on!
    Anything to make results day fun! For the last 2 years I've had bets with my parents: for every top grade (A/1) I get £20, but for everything B/2 or below I have to give them £20 from my own pocket. Let's just say that due to a severe case of CBA, I've not taken them up on it this year...

    If you got a B you had to give them £20?! Jeez...

    So by your system, last year I would have earned £60 and lost £40, therefore making £20 in total. Doesn't seem worth it tbh!

    Does anyone else think that the higher English essay questions this year were really specific and hard to write on? Just hoping I'm not the only one that did!

    Definitely! I feel like although they were good questions they weren't straight forward and were a little awkward! Although - in a couple of my exams questions were worded differently than usual

    Ok then

    Btw, on an unrelated note, do you think if I get a tutor and go to private schools, that is buying my grades? I was just wondering you see.

    I was taught perfectly well by all of my teachers at a state school.

    On another note, I have no juice and no shops near me. This is why I hate not being at uni. If I was at uni there would be a massive tesco ten minutes away, or at my new flat there would be a tesco that doesn't close until midnight (but I'd be closer from work so it would be open when I got back). FS man.

    Is it sad that no-one thinks I look intelligent? Made a good few bets for 7 A's, for favours including and extending beyond money. Of course, saying I got 5 B's and 2 C's in the prelims helps.

    Should've went to a private school and then you might be able to solve this problem.
