    Is it normal to feel like you've tanked all of your exams, retrospectively? I remember being confident after coming out of the exam hall, but now I just feel like my answers were inadequate and blunt, no nuance at all. Looking at the mark schemes (and examiner's reports from previous years) doesn't reassure me much although I know I've included lots of information that features in the mark schemes...

    That's even worse haha...
    I know, I'll just see it on my lock screen on my phone exactly what my grades are...

    For example: Caitlin 0... (student pin number at college) ACD

    All in the sentence so it'll be visible as soon as you look ((

    it's totally normal. i went from thinking i had a solid A* in the bag in physics unit 5 the day after the exam, to worrying if i've even scraped a C today...

    Thank god. I've been so worried about this because I came out of politics relatively confident and now I'm checking the mark schemes (which pleasantly surprised me) but realising that my writing was a bit... Terrible tbh, I didn't really structure anything. :eek:
    I guess this is just the result of crippling expectations playing on us... :ashamed:

    Completely normal, as tension increases you feel you did worse and worse. I don't know why we do it, maybe to make ourselves not feel surprised if we do less well than we want. Usually however, on the day all this worrying ends up with a pleasant surprise!

    Interesting read! Thanks for sharing that. However, one the people reckon they got 4 A*'s and an A and Cambridge rejected him? (He had a conditional offer) - now I'm no Cambridge expert but I don't believe they give out a 5 A* conditional offer haha

    I'm less hopeful for a pleasant surprise at my end but I certainly hope I haven't done as badly as I presume to be the case atm. :lol: I guess it's reassuring - though unfortunate - to know lots of other students feel the same.

    How worried were you about AS, and did things go well in the end then?
