    Hey I work at spasda! I have a Bsc and an MSc and as of thursday I will hopefully go to vet school. Not everyone is thick and 2 of my friends also have degrees. Although there are a lot of thickies, including my department manager, "whats a qwerty keyboard?" worked in asda since 17 (30 this month) doesnt have a clue about college let alone uni.
    Its alright, im in an ok department (mainly music, game and video, I do some photography and try to avoid home and leisure shop floor), but god, I cant wait to finish! As my friend said when I asked him where he would more rather be than work, "i would more rather be in a north korean prison camp than here".

    I will probably post the grades, don't know if I'll be sharing the mark in STEP though.

    Well I got an 88 in D2 which isn't very impressive but its something and for FP2 I think I'm only dropping the last 2 marks and in M2 I think I have gotten 60 or above, I'll just recheck with the mark schemes now. Also yeah I've been told the same thing, however I'd probably not do the Discrete Maths course if offered because I'm not too sure what it would consist of. I'd just go to Nottingham instead if that were the case.
    So, 73/75 for FP2? I think that at a worst case scenario (65 for A, 70 for A*) that would get you 96 UMS, which when combined with D2 means you would need 86 in a third A2 module. For M2 to meet that would be entirely dependent on the grade boundaries - it's not impossible although I don't know how probable it is. Have you done S2? If so, what did you get in that?

    McDonald might. My friend applied for a job there (as a dare) and they rejected her because she had too many A*. They wanted people with skills not grades or something
    Rejected for too many A*'s!? Sounds like an episode of something on Disney channel LOL

    Ah bad luck, 90 minutes isn't so bad, last year I had to wait till 2pm because they had to email me in Greece :/.
    Oh that must have been pretty crap. I had a similar problem with GCSE results, I was in Kenya and I told my school to email but they forgot so I had to contact my mum to email me instead. In the end, I didn't get them until 4 days after. But then they were only GCSE results so I guess they weren't as important. I think I would have a break down if I'd have to wait an extra 4 days for these results.

    Do you have university offers to meet?

    Ah are you hoping to go to Edinburgh too?

    I'm waiting for History, Geography, Philosophy, and Drama, how about you?
    I'll hopefully I'll be going to Warwick, it's just this thread seems completely bereft of anyone hoping for classics, I think you're the first person I've seen!
    I'm waiting on history, latin, german and politics, what board/topics did you do for history?

    I'm hoping the grade boundaries for AQA maths C4 and OCR Biology F215 are looooww. I still can't forget that maths exam.
    As much as I'd love the grade boundaries for F215 to be low, I really don't think they will be, the questions seemed far too straightforward for the boundaries to be lowered :/

    That's why I'm hoping the boundaries are low, im hopinf that full UMS is less than 90 raw marks, then we should all be fine lol.

    ... And dying inside.
    I hate the people who look at you and treat you like scum. I had this woman get pissed off with me because a game wasnt in stock (we hadnt put the ticket up yet) and that her son would be upset and angry. Im like, I cant magic it out of thin air! Go somewhere else! At least thats what I wanted to say.
    Other people ask if films are out on dvd when they literally have just started playing in the cinema.
    Anyway enough apasda fun, hopefully ill be sticking my hand up a cows butt for at least the next 5 years.
    So stressed, constant tension headache.
    If I dont meet my offer, so going for CEO of asda and first things first, I will change the uniform so the womens shirt buttons around the boob areas dont pop open all the time.
    Always aim high regardless!
