    Freaking out is an understatement....

    Are people checking ucas or results first?
    Results, I get them online at 6am so I'm guessing I'll have to wait for a bit for track to update.

    Oh hello sleepless nights! Probably expecting the same for next 2 nights ... And to top it off,
    Driving test tomorrow morning
    Followed by grade boundaries
    And then the results!
    That's my future being decided in the next 48 hours :/
    Wow.... That's rough! :s

    Good luck though!

    Good luck for the driving test, don't let results day affect your performance. Keep your mind occupied and keep going over driving test tips. You'll be fine

    Had to go out. Rushed. Pardon the grammar, exalted one.
    You are forgiven.

    I think the argument was based on the rich as a group. Individual cases can vary within a group. Read Isaac Asimov's Foundation series.
    I've just bought that and intend to read it soon

    Not great timings, right? It can go one way or the other!
    Thanks though - need all the luck
    Good luck to you too, if you're collecting results

    This post is just terrible... Back that claim up please, I'm just intrigued to know from which study you learnt of this "correlation" because I have a feeling it's bullcrap. Also remember that intelligence isn't necessarily measured by the grades one achieves.
    See my post on page 200. People want to disbelieve this because they think that it's somehow prejudiced or elitist. The fact is that intelligent people tend to become richer, and they pass on their intelligence.

    I agree, and I believe Wealth can only affect potential rather than intelligence. E.g. enough wealth for private school fees gives a better teaching experience which allows students to show their potential more than the state school can. (that is an assumption though)
    You're confusing 'wealth causes people to be more intelligent' with 'wealth is correlated with intelligence'. Ice cream sales and suncream sales are correlated, doesn't mean that I think that people buy ice cream and think 'what would go well with ice cream? Yeah, suncream'. It's merely a correlation, linked through different factors.

    Yeah that's true - really nervous for it though, hopefully the nerves will calm down once I get in the car Yepp, I'm going through the tips and 'show me, tell me' questions. Any extra tips for the test?
    Thank you

    :O well done on the A* and lets hope that other grade is an A. I think you have a strong case especially with an A*, they might accept you as a near miss but I'd call them up if your edexcel result doesn't go to plan. I am jealous of CIE'ers getting their results today :eek:
    My brother needed the same grades as you and he got A*BB and his uni let him in. So it could be likely you will be let in

    For anyone wondering: Track either opens at 7am or 8am, but I think it's 7.

    Also, two days left, but once those two days are over (and hopefully if we all get the grades)... we have to countdown again until the start of uni (only 39 days to go for me! )

    Wow, I'm nervous...

    Hello, I have my theory test today which is alright but I've heard people mainly fail on the hazard perception test, is it really different compared to the driving theory success dvd or is it around the same difficulty?
