    I feel like I look like a 12 year old so I'm worried about looking younger than everyone else :laugh:
    i need to stop being so superficial but this afternoon i actually sat down and told myself that even if i did make it into my firm, i'd take a gap year solely to grow out my hair because it is so awful

    Glad to see someone who sat the same exam as I did and love the Professor Layton series at the same time
    I just looked on your profile and you did the same subjects with the same exam boards as I did, I kinda felt obliged to follow you :lol: Only difference is I carried on OCR psychology (I know, what was I thinking :rofl:). How are you feeling about your exams in general?

    Why? I recall you stating your grades don't matter

    Someone else started a thread earlier today saying they had also had an email confirming their offer was now unconditional too!

    Hey everyone! I hope everyone isn't as nervous as me for results day
    A slight conundrum: I'm predicted ABB, and my firm offered my far lower than that (though I don't for the life of me know why), yet I'm still bricking it. I'm very lucky to have such a nice offer, but I can't help but feel like I still won't get into my firm. I'm so worried that I've been getting about 2 hours of sleep per day, and only falling asleep at about 8-10am every morning. I don't know what to do with myself! How do you guys calm yourselves down in the lead up to results day?

    Ahhhh, well it doesn't supprise me that it was them (a rather poor uni) but it's certainly annoying and how they can think they'll get away with it is beyond belief.

    can access my results from 6am on the 18th, at least I won't have to wait long when I wake up from the little sleep that I might get.

    Well unless you are going to Scotland surely freshers isn't for nearly 7 weeks. So you have time to grow it out.

    I wish i were a healthy person whose hair grew by any substantial amount in 6 weeks

    Yeah ik not the best uni in the world, I'd be raving if it was Oxbridge, or even better yet Nottingham. I don't see the need to breach it tho, unless it was a genuine mistake, I'm sure many people going there would have been pretty certain they were going to get in, my friend was anyway.

    I'm actually really stressed about results, and I'm genuinely afraid of what may happen if I don't get the results I need. To some, it may just seem like I'm chasing prestige but it goes so much beyond that, I can't even begin to explain it.

    I'm really, really scared. You know how people get high blood pressure when they're stressed? I'm so panicky that I've got low blood pressure (I've learnt how to check from my nursing trainee sister).

    The next few days are gonna be pretty tough, and goodness knows what will happen when I see the grade boundaries.

    I hate that this sounds overly emotional and desperate but this is truly how I feel about results day.

    don't even go there I held it together in that exam somehow and cried a little when I got home.....then I had AQA C3 the next day...
    My friend found one of the maths papers so disgustingly difficult that he gave up and started revising for another subject during the exam.

    Oi.
    Follow the advice you gave me.
    Everything will be fine. Take a step back. Do not worry.

    If it was from UCAS and says something like 'now your place is confirmed' and carries on to tell her about bank accounts PQ's already said that isn't a proper confirmation.
