    Wish it was easy to predict English Lit, you literally have to write pages of garbage and hope you get a good mark. Not to mention 27/30 is an A ._.

    whats the likelihood of psychology at Aston being in clearing cause i really need to go there if i dont get in to birmingham, im so stressed
    omg Birmingham are being so stingy with their clearing places this year! it's got me thinking that my course is oversubscribed and won't take me if I just miss the grades D:

    Lit is difficult!! it's weird because AS I got 24/30 and got an A which I really want expecting. A2 is WAYYY more harder and I'm crying waiting for my results, especially that I want to study it at uni D:

    Guys a questiom ...

    I was thinking of filling a "register your interest " for clearing for a uni , will this affect my current application in any way like they're asking for ucas id and all and im just worried my current firm uni wont be affected by me signing up to get clearing alerts from this uni ?
    It shouldn't do, I did this for Manchester Uni and they've just been sending me automated emails. It can't affect your application because they don't ask for your UCAS number/clearing number/etc. It's a good idea to register interest and have a Plan B just in case things don't turn out the way you're hoping

    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
    Good plan - same with me! I think I'll wait as long as possible if I've made my offer, as then there's more of a chance of being able to hide amongst the year 12s.

    I'm scared of seeing grades that I'm not expecting at all. Well, at AS, I lost my exams virginity with a D in Lit and I'll probably see a D in D1, but I'm actually afraid of seeing D/E grades in my other papers, especially in Bio, you can never predict what happens with Bio

    Biology is the worst!! I thought I was good at it then I was slapped with a C last year. The way they mark is so specific especially edexcel bio what exam board do you do?

    I did AS English Language last year, got D's and E's in every homework essay I did and did zero revision, and got 2 marks off an A in the exam. I don't understand how they mark those things.

    I did EPQ as well! Did you get told your grade before it was sent off though? I was told a rough estimate, but it gets marked a few times by the teachers before it is sent off, so their estimate has to be close.
