    I agree it's really difficult!! I'm panicking because my school uses the system where Year 12s are given their overall A Level expected grades from the start. Mine were all Cs, and if I get higher than my expected grades what happens?

    So when you apply to uni (if that's where you're going after) are those the predicted grades they'll enter, even if you get, say, all As? :confused:

    Being told "I don't know why you're worrying, you'll get the grades" by relatives is so frustrating :laugh::laugh:
    Thank you!!! Honestly it's quite pressurizing and frankly just adds to the intensity of the day all together!

    This may have been asked already but does anyone know how common it is for a firm choice uni to accept an applicant whose results were a
    Couple of grades lower than the original offer?

    Depends on the university and the course. It varies a lot.

    Is there like a certain day where the amount of courses in Clearing will drop drastically? Like I was thinking Tuesday/Wednesday but honestly I have no idea whether the unis do a mass update when they've decided most of their places or they slowly drop over the next few days and it's slightly more gradual. Like two unis I emailed that said they 'probably wouldn't be in clearing' are still there and I'm just waiting for them to go...

    Also, I've been informed that I'll be wearing a heart monitor for the majority of results day....I can't wait to see whether there's any dramatic change on it at say...8 am...oh dear...
