    Thought I'd post here in the runup to this.

    Who, despite constantly getting consistent As and A*s in all practice papers beforehand, is still bricking themselves over this? I need to get AAB, the exact results I got last year, yet I don't see any scenario in which I will have done so. All my teachers are ones who've been marking for years now but I can't trust their judgement in all the mocks and practices I did. It's like nothing can get my mind off of failure and it sucks, probably the reason I'm up at 1am. These three days can't go fast enough.

    For the record I'm doing Business, English Lit and Film, the first of which is what I'm going on to study. All three have always had relatively low grade boundaries so I'm interested in seeing what they are this year.

    1am is nothing , you'll be fine. Everyone is *****ing it, I keep thinking my papers will get lost, or my exam won't be marked correct even in the papers I did well in.

    all edexcel mark schemes are up, you can find them on the first post of this thread in all of the links!
    omg it says for lvl5 there needs to be an impressive conclusion. both my conclusions were shite because i was panicking due to time. do you think it's still possible for me to get an A if i included the right material and argued it consistently with evaluations?

    Ha, wish I had that kind of worry. My worries are that I somehow screwed it all up in the exam room (room because I was lucky/illegible enough to type my exams up). I'm deathly afraid of looking at Tutor2u and their provisional mark schemes.

    Why couldn't it have been the 15th like last year? Like I said above these three days are going to be utter hell.

    I blame Brexit.

    Checking the Grade Boundaries from last year is really my only comfort at this point. They can't have changed that much, right?

    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.
    Im in exactly the same position (same grades and all). What did you apply for?

    Allow me to join in,That was my first FE game but it wasn't that much enjoyable,The storyline isn't that amazing(Then again most people don't play FE for Story) but I must admit the animation was good for a 3ds game.I played birthright and conquest,But since Revelations had the strongest story of the three,Might give it a try in the future.

    I also like having fewer people know about a game,Means much more to me that way as well,jRPGs are good in that regard because even though some of them are quite popular and maybe even mainstream in the west,None of my classmates care about them.Its oddly satisfying for whatever reason.
    It was only my third FE game, and whilst I enjoyed its story and it in general, I appreciate that others may not share my opinion. Was there anything about the story that really bugged you?Same here regarding the lack of knowledge of JRPGs in the west, though I have got my friend into Fire Emblem now!

    Because once you've crossed the line you know exactly how well you did.

    Waiting for results is like not being able to see your opponents during a race, finishing it then having to wait 2 months for your position to come up.
