    Tomorrow night ill be up all night waiting for grade boundaries + mark schemes.
    Wednesay night ill be up all night as I'll be too anxious to sleep.
    Thursday night I'll be up all night partying; either to celebrate or drown my sorrows.

    Treasuring tonight's sleep!!
    When do the mark schemes come out,


    Also another general question, as soon as I find my results and if I want use clearing, I need to be on it ASAP right?

    And final one, Do I need to get the telegraph or are the clearing places available online?

    Sorry for these questions, so nervious. :/

    Care to list some? And please not Paris Hilton, or whatever. Inherited wealth is an entirely different issue.
    Actually Paris Hilton is quite intelligent. She makes a lot of money marketing her "dumb blonde inherited wealth" persona.

    does anyone know when the OCR grade boundries come out
    Wednesday 14th August,
    00:00-01:00.

    (I gave a range as they never release it on the website on time; TSR will find it first before the website authorise it properly!)

    I actually feel quite calm right now. I'm relatively confident that I made my offer (but ask me again on Wednesday night). Anyone else expecting to pull an all-nighter on Wednesday?

    They are released Wednesday morning, anytime after midnight!

    And yes- get onto clearing ASAP as lines will get busy and you'll want to be in there before good spots go!
    the telegraph is useful, but they are available online. Telegraph might be better as you may not have access to the Internet whilst on the phone!

    I definitely can guarantee the all-nighter at this end; I am only receiving AS results... Well.

    I say only in a comparative mindset compared to the sheer significance of YOURS!

    Can you actually access them because I couldn't access any of the January papers or mark schemes as you needed a password

    I know the feeling I couldnt sleep last night because I was thinking about it as soon as I got into bed. Now I'm at the stage where I feel a little bit sick when I think about it!
    Same! Whenever I get into bed all I can think about is results day and I end up staying up for another three hours just thinking about it

    Well...
    As an example, the AS/A2 EdExcel Mathematics Mark Schemes have been out for about a week and a half - they're sitting in iBooks awaiting speculation!

    French with law hopefully! What about you?
    I'm for doing theoretical physics or maths. I still don't know what I'd prefer yet I'm hoping to pick French up at uni as I got an A* and top of the year at GCSE and didn't do it for A level as it seemed a bit like English lit in a different language, but I have severely missed it Perhaps Mandarin instead... I haven't decided what language yet

    Not sure, you might need a password! But someone on the student room usually will have access and will post them
