    They can't all have been that bad - I'm sure you've done fine. I've done 3 out of 11 so far

    I'm currently doing AS, and will be starting my A2 courses when I return from study leave in June. I am taking AQA English Literature and Language, AQA Media Studies and AQA Sociology. Personally I found these exams OK. I revised lots for them and worked really hard in class and at home, so hopefully it's all paid off! in terms of university, I start attending open days next Saturday, the first being Derby. I'm hoping to do a degree in Media and Communications, so that should be exciting I don't know any entry requirements yet, should be f u n.

    Last night I had a dream I failed all my subjects :eek: which hopefully hasn't happened. My parents have always told me that whenever a door closes, plenty of other doors open, so I know that this is their way of telling me that there are so many options out there even if I don't do aswell as I hoped

    The 18th August may seem a long way away, but with exams now in full swing, it will be upon us in the blink of an eye. I thought I'd make this thread (again) having received my A2 results last year. Useful stuff will inevitably be added to this thread as time progresses. In the mean time, post your thoughts regarding exams, results day, university and perhaps predict what grades you'll get. Good Luck!

    Questions
    • Are you AS or A2?
    • What subjects are you taking?
    • How are exams going?
    • To which university are you hoping to go?
    • To study which subject?
    • How are you feeling about results day?
    • Anything else to add?
    Stuff
    1. I'm AS, and I'm amazed by how the year has flown
    2. I took English (lit&lang combined), RS, Art & French
    3. Exams are going a lot better than I thought, I won't lie. However my Literature exam last thursday was pretty brutal, I must say
    4. I hope to go to Cardiff University, I went to the open day and fell in love with the uni, it's so beautiful
    5. I want to study Journalism, Media & Cultural Studies with the hopes of becoming an investigative journalist, think Louis Theroux and that's basically my life goal right there
    6. I'm petrified. This is my first results day in my new college, and as this year hasn't been so great I'm kinda worried...
    7. I hate french and i'm dropping that on results day no matter what result I get, completely regret taking it

    • Are you AS or A2? AS
    • What subjects are you taking? AQA Psychology, AQA Sociology, Edexcel Health and Social Double award, AQA EPQ (This didn't have an exam but it is compulsory for year 12)
    • How are exams going? I've already finished my exams,the majority of them went not too bad, the worst exam I have took was the health and social single exam, also AQA have been absolute stars with their exams for the new spec in psychology/sociology.
    • To which university are you hoping to go? I'm really undecided but luckily enough, I have time to decide, I'm attending many open days later on in the year.
    • To study which subject? Its either between Health and Social, Social work or Early childhood studies,
    • How are you feeling about results day? Not too bad at the moment but when it gets closer to the day I will get nervous, as it is a new college and we are setting the boundaries for the next year 12.
