    Never expecting a grade again :lol:

    Grade boundaries aren't very useful because you can't predict your raw mark... I was around 20 marks off over all my A Level exams today :mmm:

    C4 I got right
    C3 I was 7 marks off
    C2 I was 7 marks off
    S1 I was 4 marks off

    (all in the wrong direction)

    HY1 I was 7 marks off again...

    So 25 marks away from my predictions

    Moral. Don't get set on a grade until you get them
    you still did so good though! and plus you have time to resit them still :hugs:

    Personally I'd rather be posh than permanently have something stuck in my throat.

    you should !! reading might take a while (they're big books) but watching them is only 10 hours a season and it's so totally worth it

    Maths chemistry Biology and physics you ?
    Hahaha, yeah I've seen the books. They're huge! Aren't there like 10 or something?

    I shall get started with Game of Thrones tonight This will definitely distract me from results day :eek:

    I'm doing Maths, Chemistry and Biology like you, but instead of Physics, I'm doing French

    How are you feeling about next week?

    What is everyone doing courses wise for A-Level?
    I'm doing:
    Biology,
    French,
    Geography,
    PE

    Bit of an odd combination, but I want to work in the Police Force or in Veterinary so trying to keep my options open. I think I'm going to regret applying for French? It's one of my strongest subjects, but then I don't excel in any of them either so...

    I'm doing an odd combination too:

    Maths;
    History;
    Economics;
    Product Design.

    I feel I'm quite good at Product Design but it's the one that will probably put some universities off me. But I'm still not entirely sure whether I want to do something with design (most likely Product Design or Industrial Design) or whether I want to do something like Law or Politics which is where the other three (Maths fits both though) come in.
