    3 weeks or so left and I still haven't even started my EPQ artefact... I think results day nerves are also kicking in now - I have nothing to worry about because what's done is done but there's that little fear of a potential mistake in the marking (but I don't doubt the examiners).

    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 do AQA, which is probably the worst I'm especially scared about the EMPA, the practical. It is small but it's probably gonna be what brings me down from the grade I need

    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 AS Language last year and I got 2 marks of an A as well! :rofl: I got an A overall, but I only got a C in this year's coursework and heaven knows what I got in the exam so I'm hoping a B

    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.
    I did EPQ too. Got told I had a B, but it was only a mark within the B boundary. I'm happy with a B but worried that it will drop to a C :'(

    Lol I was the opposite to that, every homework/assignment was an A, my coursework was practically full marks, then bam, D in LITB1

    I remember laughing when I saw it, then crying

    I dropped it, I couldn't stand English, hence the lack of revision. The only reason I took it was for Law at university, and I realised in the January of that year that Law was not the subject for me.

    Ah I'm sure you should be fine! The teachers have to mark it at least 2-3 times to get an accurate idea, so if they say that you have a B, chances are, unless it changes, you should have a B. The staff that mark it have to stick to a strict scheme, so their marking should be almost accurate

    Ah I see, some of it does get a bit dull, but it's the better subject of the two for me as regards to knowledge Oh, at least you knew for sure so that you didn't have to continue with a subject that you didn't like for the sake of nothing What do you want to do now?

    I only got told mine because I kept asking about it! :rofl: I just wanted to make sure that I had done well so I knew what I had to do as regards to how hard I had to push myself for the other subjects! If it aids you, one of my teachers said that it was incredibly difficult to fail EPQ, and that most people get grades C and higher.

    I'm sure that you've done really well!

    FWIW

    UCAS will not make Track live at 6am (or any other time when their call centre isn't open).

    Their call centre opens at 7:30am on results day. They say Track will be live at 8am.

    https://www.ucas.com/corporate/about-us/contact-us

    Don't waste an hour or more refreshing the track login page from 6-7:30am it isn't worth it.

I've been alright actually so far, I've just told myself that if I don't get in then it's not the end of the world :rofl: I have no clue what I'm going to be doing first - results or track.

    My predicted grade was an a* but the teacher refused to tell us what grades she had given us! I'm hoping I don't get a nasty surprise on results day 😭

    Ah that's alright :rofl: :rofl: Ooohhh yay well done! Yeah my teacher was saying that she marked it and then it was marked again by someone else who is VERY experienced with marking this subject and it stayed the same! I got an A, but I was quite surprised as tbh I struggled quite a lot! :rofl:

    What did you do your report on?

    I was the same! Full marks all year then pulled a C on the exam. I remember being so confident for the exam as well, it makes me even more scared for this year because I need an A but what if what happened last year happens again </3
