    Thanks it's definitely worth doing if your school does it (most don't) and you qualify for it.

    Down the road at MMU - sad I missed out on the MAP bursary but MMU were the only uni to offer the joint honours course I do and this way I qualify as a speech therapist and get an accredited psychology degree too (just in case I want to change direction later on and do further postgrad studies). At least my debts after 4 years at uni will only be about £10K - thank you NHS. Good luck for Thursday but sure all will be fine
    Yeah, it's always good to keep your options open!

    And thanks, I really hope everything goes well

    Well, you're halfway there with the crazy bit (just kidding, of course, though fair enough, you're no doubt under an increasing amount of stress the closer it gets)

    Being told "I don't know why you're worrying, you'll get the grades" by relatives is so frustrating :laugh::laugh:

    You don't need to do anything. If your firm and insurance reject you then your clearing details will show on track.
    Ah okay, makes sense. Thanks!

    For A2 Students, anyone else choose a firm and insurance with near identical grades and regretting it now lmaooo
    YES.
    Firm- A*AA
    Insurance- AAA
    Wish I'd chosen an AAB/ABB insurance now tbh as I'm probably going to end up in Clearing.

    Same!! If I confide in them that I'm stressed, they say "oooh you'll be fine" but then again, this year, I did subjects that I was actually interested in and that I knew I'd excel in, so maybe they might be right?? Guess we'll find out on Thursday if I can do Year 13

    Yes, it is. Which questions did you do and how did you feel about it? [/QUOTE]

    For 3B, I did socialism, anarchism and liberalism 15 markers and the anarchism 45.
    For 4B, I did nationalism, multiculturalism, and feminism 15s and then the feminism 45.
    I think they went ok, but I'm still hoping for low grade boundaries just in case I've messed up!

    No not yet. They won't be available to people who have special access to them until the 17th. There's a person here who does but he didn't guarantee he could retrieve them and get them uploaded on here in time.

    I am genuinely feeling so nervous for Edexcel 8BS0_01 and 8BS0_02 - in the mock exams the average within the exams was an E throughout the whole year at our school. We don't know what to expect and I am so scared.
    I've just found the markscheme and I am honestly so nervous, I don't even know if I wrote anything of the sort.
    I am no longer confident. At all.

    I am actually using TSR on a computer

    Never done this before I usually use my mobile phone, so when I don't have access to a computer I can still reply to things.

    I don't even know why I'm posting this in an A Level results day thread. But hey-ho.
