    I'm not gonna lie, I never stopped thinking about results for very long, but at least it got a bit easier last year a couple of weeks after my AS exams. You start thinking a bit more rationally about the questions you thought you messed up etc, and it just gets more chilled and you can enjoy yourself a bit more. Then it gets kind of crazy again haha, I was going totally nuts in the two weeks leading up to results day.

    So I guess what I'm saying is you have like a two day window where life isn't living hell
    That's reassuring I am going on holiday so hopefully that'll keep my mind off it.

    Well it will be quicker than the wait for GCSE results.

    I suspect the wait will only get quicker. These last few school weeks are going REALLY fast.
    Yeah waiting an extra week must suck especially for those whose uni offers depend on a certain GCSE grade.

    How hard is it to sleep before results day?

    Just because last year's results day for GCSE, the results I was picking up, I'd just came off a 3 hour train journey from London at about 11pm at night because I go to London every year. So I had exhausted myself and woke up in a good mood as I had a really nice trip I was pretty chilled out for results day last year but this year it's the opposite... I'm stressed already for my AS results and there's a month to go

    How will I get through next year when my university place depends on my results...

    Bit late but here we go:
    • Are you AS or A2? A2
    • What subjects are you taking? Maths, Further Maths, Physics and French
    • To which university are you hoping to go? The University of Warwick
    • To study which subject? Maths
    • If applicable, what were your AS grades? AB other units were not cashed in
    • What grades are required for your desired degree? A*A*A* or A*A*AA
    • What grades are you predicted? A*A*A*A
    • How did your exams go? Exams didn't go so well this year. I messed up one of my further pure units which now makes me really worried as to whether or not I'll get the A*. French went fine so that should be an A* and physics went alright. I was trying to get that up to an A* from a B at AS but that's unlikely. Tbh I don't really care as I hate physics. Already got the A* in maths.
    • How are you feeling about results day? Quite nervous as I really want (and need!) an A* star in Further Maths and I'm not completely sure I got it. I really want to go to Warwick and I really hope I haven't ruined my chances of going there. The high entry requirements are quite scary. I am looking forward to it however and the wait couldn't be any slower haha.
    Physics "up to an A* from a B" do you know that your AS result doesn't count towards your A*? A* only depends on A2.

    AS does count towards your final grade. You can't get a D at AS and then get A* overall. You need enough ums points.

    Obviously you need to get an A overall to get an A* but I thought it was sure you'd get that.
    If your overall is between 80% and 90% only but your A2 is above 90% that's an A*

    Nah I'd be very lucky to get an A* or even an A.

    Start a short-term hobby :yep: . It really helps!

    When waiting for my AS Results, I re-read the entirety of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings (only took about 3 weeks), and took up gardening and the family cooking.

    When waiting for my A2 Results, I started a MMORPG and racked up 6 weeks at 12 hours a day :facepalm:

    When waiting for my First Year results I learned Photoshop and Premiere Pro, from scratch, and took up photography and video editing.

    When waiting for my Second Year results, I got a part time job at the Uni :yep:

    When waiting for my Third Year results, I travelled around the UK, setting myself a challenge to get from my home town to as far North/South/East/West as cheaply as possible and back in a day.

    When waiting for my Fourth Year results, I watched as many films and TV shows as I could, because I was shattered :lol: . I put on soo much weight that summer


    It doesn't need to be anything productive, just something to keep your mind occupied
