    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
    Oh wow i got into them two aswell πŸ˜„ haha, im sure youll do great i hear if your one grade or so off your offer and your personal statement was strong they may let you in anyway πŸ™„ thats what im hoping for haha, yeah we will either die when grade boundries are released or be hopeful haha πŸ’! Ive heard clearing isnt too much work anyway 😚

    Yeh hopefully If it's do miss the offer the it's for the subject that isn't the on I'm applying for( maths ) so they'd be more likely to still accept me ... And yeh clearing isn't that bad but I'm really fussy about UNOs and I am not the sort of the person that can just make a quick decision about where I want to go - like out of 5 choices I don't want to go to any of them apart from my firm and insurance so idk where I would actually go to through clearing- I guess when it comes to it I'll be so desperate that I'll go to some uni like Newcastle eat but right now I just can't see myself doing that

    I know exactly what you mean! When a place feels right it usually is, for years i wanted to go to duhram, As results day really upset me as i got AAAB which made me worry about my chances, i resat my B this year. But when i went to visit duhram i didnt like it at all i think i mostly liked the idea of it, when i went to lancaster it just felt right! I think youll be fine Nottingham are quite reasonable! Is it weird that i prefered Lincoln to duhramπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    RESULTS DAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!
    HOWEVER I feel like I made the wrong choice about my course (and I've already changed it once). I think I'm going to use adjustment if I get the opportunity.... But would Sheffield still want me after already changing my course???

    Well the vast majority of my exams have gone well or very well this year. I feel they certainly went ALOT better than AS last year, where I came out after virtually every exam distraught or humble. Had only 1 bad A2 exam but I don't think it will dramatically affect whether I'll get in to my firm choice uni. I got ABBB at AS which was very disappointing for me since my firm requires AAA, so I had to do a few resits to pull up my grades. I am quite confident that I pulled my Physics grade from a B to an A, and am 99.99% sure I will get an A minimum in Maths (given high AS ums). Geography is a little concerning, I may just slip to a B but hopefully my uni will let me in anyway as it's not a subject required for the course I want to do (wheras Maths and Physics are), and it should be close enough to the A boundary so I might be classed as a "near miss" applicant.

    What subjects are you taking?
    Maths, Business, Economics and Law.

    To what university do you want to go to?
    Oxford or UCLAN or Durham.

    Studying what subject? Law

    What are your predicted grades?
    AAAA (I'm in AS)

    Best case: AAAB
    Worst case: ABBC (Thank god my a levels are mostly linear)

    How did your exams go?

    Maths - Terrible (C1 D, C2 B, S1 A)
    Law - Decent - (Law01 A, Law02 A/B)
    Business - (Bus01 D, Bus02 A)
    Economics - (Eco1 A, Eco2 A)

    Feeling about results day?

    So worried, but all i care about is my predicted grades so i can step it up next year.
    Wow you sound exactly like me last year! With the exact same best and worst case AS grades as I was thinking. I ended up with ABBB at AS (4th subject remarked from a C to B). My advice is don't be disheartened too much, you'll be surprised how much your study skills and your exam ability (and even the confidence in yourself!) matures a lot by the end of A2. So if you do get similar grades as I did, you should not worry as you can absolutely pull them ALL up, there's absolutely nothing stopping you except yourself!

    I think i've already experienced it. Something just happens after the AS exams, and now i just want to be prepared for A2. Thanks for your motivation and good luck with your grades.

    For the vast majority of AS students, AS results day is usually filled with at least some disappointment so it's fine! It's one of those things which just happens. People panic under pressure and screw up some exams, perhaps the exam you encountered was rediculolusly hard, didn't resemble past papers and grade boundaries didn't make up for it. Both situations happened to me at AS. In Physics I ended up with 2 As and a D in my modules! Yes a D! And what's even more shocking is the fact I've been getting nearly full marks in all 5 years worth of past papers I did! I don't even know how that happened BUT, I resat that D this year and the exam was a lot easier this time round and I'm pretty sure I pulled it to an A

    Is it true that teachers know their students results / are emailed the grades before we even open the envelopes??????

    That would be SO unnerving....
    Yes...
