    So I finished my exams a week ago now...

    Firm offer: AAA
    Best case: A*AA (although I suspect my chances of an A in history are slim)
    Worst case: ABB (which is my insurance offer, so I'm pretty confident I won't end up in clearing at least)
    What I think is most likely: A*AB

    Are you AS or A2?
    A2 (one AS)

    AS grades - DDU (dropped the U)
    A2 predictions - BC (A-AS)
    Offers- CC

    What subjects are you taking?
    AQA Sociology, WJEC ICT, AS WJEC Health and Social Care

    How are your exams going?
    They've not been the best, had surgery less than 2 weeks before my first exam (resit) and was unable to walk nor revise for that period of time as I was in hospital for that whole duration. Had surgery twice last academic year as well, so overall, my a levels have been an awful experience :/

    Sociology resits- meh I guess, annoyed about the education unit 2 resit because the topics were already on last year and the year before ://

    ICT resit- perfect couldn't have gone any better

    Sociology unit 3- fab, 9 & 33 marker were just want I wanted and predicted so loved it.. 18 marker was a pain because I wasn't expecting it.. but it's only a smaller marker

    ICT A2- awful, the questions were hell, hardest ICT exam I've ever sat doesn't help as I was sick twice during the exam and had to keep stopping and starting the exam to move to different rooms

    Sociology unit 4- disaster..complete disaster.. when I was off 2 months prior to my surgery etc. My teacher 'forgot' to give me the material, after I constantly asked her to give me the material needed.. after months of begging she never gave it me..nor any of the revision guides..turned out what she didn't give me was on the exam... didn't write anything at all

    To which university are you hoping to go to?
    Robert Gordon in Aberdeen

    To study what?
    Mental Health Nursing

    How are you feeling about results day?
    Absolutely terrified, not only it's 2 days before my 18th birthday (20th aug) but I know my exams went awful so not expecting to get into uni this year at all... I've applied for special consideration but I really have no confidence that it's going to change much in my grades so I've got the feeling I need to defer for a year than resit everything again... ..again

    At least you're prepared for the eventual outcome ; don't feel too bad about having to retake either - I'm planning to retake as well if I don't get in and I'm somewhat looking forward to get the chance again to do better - as long as you're motivated then I'm sure you'll do a LOT better the second time around !!

    Yeah, thanks I appreciate it, a lot of people on TSR have said it's my fault that I've had surgery during college etc. But sometimes you have no choice and the hospital put you in and you have no say in the manner. .. sometimes I regret me having surgery.. but you know your health has got to come first sometimes.. and that's what I've had to do for the past 2 years unfortunately. I just feel cheated of my sociology unit 4 by my teachers though, I mean she 'forgot' to give me the material and after the exam took place she came to see me and said 'sorry I've messed you up,, I'm really really sorry'... and considering that was my last exam, it's not a nice feeling to end it on when teachers forget to give you material . And yeah exactly there's no current plans for me to have any more surgery etc next year so I'm able to take a year out, get a part time job and resit my A2 exams again. . And I'll obviously feel emotionally, physically better so I'll be in a much better position to get better grades so I'm not too bothered. . I just wanted to go to Scotland as soon as possible due to other personal issues where I currently live.. that's the problem I only have. Apart from that.. yeah I'm quite looking forward to having one more chance to get into uni ahah.

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

    That would be SO unnerving....
    who do you think stuffs the envelopes?

    My insurance technically want higher grades but my firm has given me a reduced offer and won't go lower but my insurance will go up to 3 lower. It really depends on the situation.

    Had my first results day dream last night. I got BCD and missed out on both my offers (ABB and 280 UCAS points/BCC) and started working in a local clothes shop. My worst nightmare! I hate working in retail. :cry:
