    do you guys keep trying to remember the exam and remember if you made mistakes??? or issit just me
    yeah, the worst part is as soon as the exam ended, I remembered the right answers for a lot of questions but in the heat of the exam my mind went blank and then it's so silly because you know the answer, you just didn't put it down (this was French btw)

    That sounds really interesting! I was going to do something like that 😜

    It really was! The only problem is, when you have to read content like that it takes a long time to process it It was good to do though, my teacher even emailed me one day to say that she had found a tv series about them and wondered if I watched it

    Exeter (Cambridge reject lol) and I know, I keep going over mistakes I made in my head but it's out of our hands now! I read somewher eon tsr that it's all done manually and someone's already sat with our grades and compared it to our offer to tick us off or reject. it's less than a week now!
    That's so high! I was rejected from Cambridge too :highfive: it really annoys me that they have them and know them before we do but hopefully this week goes in fast!

    What are people's plans if results day goes badly and you're rejected? Clearing? Gap year?
    I was thinking if i do really badly i'll apply to a european uni instead because then at least if i don't get into an amazing uni at least i'll be going to an exciting one!

    I'm like 98% certain I've missed my firm. I need A*A*A in maths, chemistry and physics respectively for chemistry with molecular physics at Imperial.... I made so many incredibly silly mistakes in both chemistry exams because of stress (OCR) and the worst thing is that the exams weren't that hard so grade boundaries will probably be high . I also do OCR biology and because I wasn't at all worried about doing well (because it's not in my offer), it'll probably end up being my best science this year (still think F214 was a joke though, stupid scientist with his stupid pond). UGH I wish results day was yesterday.

    I've been getting used to the idea of going to my insurance, but my parents don't want me to go there, and they've told the whole family that I'm going Imperial ?!!!!????? Whenever I tell them I don't expect to meet my offer they tell me that I'll be fine. HA HA HA

    Hopefully we'll have done enough! I kept on all 4 subjects for A2 also and I'm really hoping it works in my favour. It's so annoying knowing all the Scottish know if they're in or not too.

    I know, high five!! They are so selective it's crazy. One of my friends last year missed her offer by 1 ums for cambridge, even though 1 ums doesn't make you any dumber than the next person (it wasn't even a whole mark, something ridiculous like 0.63 of a mark). I was predicted A*A*A ( I did politics, English Lit and French btw) but I know I didn't get that, I'd honestly be surprised if I even managed a B in French, it was like they changed the spec without telling anybody and gave us a paper for native speakers, uni level and above. The thought of having to open the envelope without knowing before hand makes me feel sick so I reckon i'll check track at 8am as soon as it updates. What about you?

    ugh, i hate it when parents are overly confident in me - they think it helps but it just makes me feel even worse. what's your insurance?

    Omg how weird, I was actually kind of thinking of doing this myself! I haven't really looked into it properly yet though so I don't really know where to start. Where would you want to go?

    you know if you make your offer, what does your status say? just "congratulations! your place at ____ for ____ has been confirmed."?

    and if you get rejected by both your firm and insurance, will you see this on the screen or something else?:

    They really are!! I applied for natural sciences too and (somehow) got an interview but I'm glad I got rejected now, I know it wasn't for me but that is crazy! You can be so close yet it still doesn't matter. I hate when the exam boards do papers like that! That was like my A21 Chemistry exam - it was awful!! I was predicted A*A*A*A* in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and English Literature (lol), really not happening at all!! As long as I get AAA I'll be happy!!

    Exactly! Chemistry at Durham. They don't like that it's so far (I think that it'd be a good thing haha) - Imperial is about an hour away from where I live. I think I remember you from the Imperial thread? Engineering of some sort?

    mechanical! although i'm really drawn towards EEE/compsci at this point so we'll see if i can change my mind haha
    and durham is absolutely amazing - you'll have a great time whether you get into your firm or insurance! do you have a preference between imperial and durham?
