    My mum always says that you can't do anything more than try your best. Your parents have seen how dedicated you've been so will be proud of you no matter what! I know the grade boundaries have increased a bit, but the results are already in the envelope so there's no point in beating yourself up! You've tried your best and that's all you can do - good luck for tomorrow, I'm sure you've done fine
    yeah, you're right. I guess whatever happens now, just happens. Thank you so much! I hope so. If you're getting your results tomorrow then I wish you so much good luck! xo

    Don't worry about it too much, just speak to your parents and explain to them the situation so it helps. I told my parents to lower their expectations after seeing the grade boundaries, I think we are all in the same situation when it comes to the ridiculously high boundaries. Good luck with your results and I hope the hard work pays off!
    I love that there's so many people in the same situation and it's not just me.. it takes a little stress off my shoulder. Thank you so much and I hope so too! Good luck with your results, I hope you get the grades you want, if not, higher! x

    I did the same thing

    OP, I feel the exactly the same way as you. I know it's hard, but just try and keep your mind off it tonight. You've tried your best and that's all anyone could ask for. I'm sure you've done a lot better than you think and I bet you'll be on here this time tomorrow saying you got a string of A's and A*s

    Good luck!

    Thank you, good luck with your results. I think once I have my results I will not look at this thread, otherwise it will be a 'what could of been' moment

    You'll be fine, people say the same thing every year. Grade boundaries ensure you get the grades you deserve most of the time and keep everything fair

    Well stop thinking this until you actually get your results, a lot of people think they did **** then end up with good grades.

    I worked so so so hard for my GCSES for around 3 months and I used to stay back so late to revise and every weekend id be at my desk from the moment I woke up to the moment I went to bed. I thought I did OK. But now, looking at the grade boundaries I'm so so heartbroken. I didn't think this year's exams were that simple tbh and were kind of harder than previous years. I was hoping for A's&B's but I just know that's definitely not going to happen anymore. I don't know what to do, I don't want my parents thinking I haven't worked hard enough because I don't get good grades because I've worked as hard as I could yet they won't see that in my grades. I hate these grade boundaries and I just can't understand how all my hard work is literally gone out of the window now. They say hard work pays off but now I know that's not true..
    come back tomorrow and post how well you did

    Did you have second thoughts after seeing grade boundaries?

    Everything about this is me too. I'm predicted B's and C's and I was determined to show them that I can do better than that and reach my full potential. I worked so so hard (even though a part of me tells me I could've worked harder, I don't think I could have really..) and yet these grade boundaries are going to pull me back from wanting A's and B's.

    This is literally me! I keep thinking I should've worked harder but I know that's impossible. I hate that they get to determine how capable we are but I really hope you get the grades you want. Nothing sucks more than working hard and not having it pay off. The best of luck for tomorrow! xox
