    Hey guys it's me , basically i know you guys are doing A levels, i'm doing GCSE and getting mine on the 25th. I wanted to ask for your opinion on how you guys will feel if this was GCSE results day - what would your thoughts be compared to getting your A level results. I heard there's somewhat of a jump from the two and would appreciate any replies that i get. thnx.
    I admittedly wasn't as scared at GCSE. They are a big deal when you do them at the time and there's still pressure. But I only view qualifications as a sort of 'they're getting me to the next step' thing, and to get into college, I was fine with GCSEs since all I needed was 5 of them and at least Bs in Maths and English to get into college(and I don't want to sound cocky) that was pretty easily attainable for me since my lowest grade prediction was an A and I was doing 10. Although I imagine it's more pressure for Oxbridge candidates because GCSEs are more important to them as far as I'm aware...but I'm not Oxbridge material so
    At GCSE it was more curiosity than fear of results day.

    Now, A Levels. Again, I only see them as the step I need to get to uni. But the difference is the requirements need you to get specific grades in ALL of your subjects. Like at GCSE, if I failed one subject, it would've been fine bc I still had 9 other GCSEs and you pretty much know a college would still take you. But I need all three of my A2 grades now for uni. At GCSE I revised pretty much the night or week before for them but A Levels has been months and months of prep for me, yet I guarantee my grades won't be anything like my GCSE grades. Like GCSE my lowest prediction for A2 is an A but if I get one A I'd honestly be incredibly surprised. If I get a B in Physics I'd be even more shocked tbh. The jump from GCSE to A Level is huge. I'm terrified for results day this year...

    Good Luck with your result

    Biochemistry at KCL and the offer is AAB but I'm expecting ABB or even BBB..now that's not good is it? I've heard tales about people getting in at QMUL with CCD or something but never heard of leniency on behalf of KCL 😳

    Hey kings might be lenient with abb if they are in clearing. I know a friend that got in for chem with abb and she needed aab.

    I feel like GCSE results day was something I was less worried about. On GCSE results, my main worry was hitting the B grades in the subjects I want to study at A Levels (my sixth form required that)

    With A Levels though, I literally feel like my future is on the line because it really does determine if I go to uni, and which one I go to!

    I was up until about 3:45am if not 4am worrying especially considering my results are at 9am and my boyfriend's are at 11am so if he wants me there we have to do a whole lot of working out surrounding the day

    It is so, so, easy to just start thinking about things whilst you're trying to sleep and then all sorts. The thing I do is to watch Vine Compilations on youtube and it helps because you're focussing on something and laugh occasionally too, and eventually you feel sleepy enough to just turn off your phone (set on minimum brightness as well.. that's important) and nod straight off. I'm not saying you should watch vines as great as they are, but something else maybe that's not too long but still fun and loads of different things to watch. Or just try different things anyway, like I tried the 4-7-8 technique and didn't really get the hang of it but that's what you should try as part of the process.

    meditation is key, the whole reason you're thinking at night is because you distracted yourself with vines and other random stuff all day so you didn't have time to reflect on your own life

    For me that's the whole reason why I don't think at night :lol: but fairs, I guess I do my 'reflecting' during the day whilst walking to work. :hide: how important it is.. I dunno. If it comes to the point where you're just 'reflecting' by reliving bad experiences or worrying about results then that's probably not good anyway.

    It's more calming and refreshing than focused reflection (for me), I usually meditate for 10-15 minutes just to relax - then I take a walk and think through anything I feel I should. Just meant I wasnt preoccupied about random stuff when I go to bed but thats just me.

    Depends on the Marks i think.
    In my school if you very close to 90 or above you get predicted the A*.

    Depends on the school and teachers as well as marks. I got 192/200 in my AS Sociology and was only predicted an A (which I needed 2 mid Cs to get) because my school was new and didn't want to look bad by predicting higher than the student got...though the A and B in my other subjects will shock them when it's a C and D

    In my school how they did it was if your UMS % in AS was over 90% they would predict you an A* if it wasn't they'd predict you an A

    For me, GCSE results wasn't too bad tbh, I got a little freaked out but honestly I was never in much doubt that I'd got the grades I needed for sixth form (especially as I'd taken maths in november and already had one A* under my belt).

    AS results last year was worse (although with the changes I doubt this will be as bad for students in the coming years) as a) I'd decided I'd done badly in everything and b) I knew these results would affect my uni applications and like my entire future.. I ended up totally freaked out and a teacher ended up having to open the envelope for me (hilarious in hindsight as this teacher knew I'd got 4As)

    This year, I'm honestly pretty chill. I messed up one exam pretty badly but, having done well in coursework, I'd need a U in it to miss my insurance offer (ABB), my other two subjects went okay so I'm a good 99.9% sure that there are only two ways results day can go for me - firm and insurance (although insurance is probably more likely). I'm happy with both unis and confident that I won't be in clearing, which has taken a lot of pressure off me tbh

    However looking at some of the replies on this thread, I'm definitely one of the lucky ones and most people are decidedly not "pretty chill" about result day aha

    Hey, yeah my friend got in I think her offer was ABB for Biochem but she got CCD and the D was in Chemistry lol so I really don't know, you stand good chances for QMUL! What is the course you applied for?
