    Im soo nervous about the gcse results I will be happy with B grades and above I will be slightly upset If I receive any C's because the sixth form I want to go to is a grammar school and they want 5 A*-B's so I really need 5 B's technically
    Same ! I want to go to a grammar school 6th form next year but they're asking for 6A*s to B's.

    Well good luck I just don't want to feel dissappointed on results day because I really want to get out of my current school these grades are like a golden ticket to the grammar school and a one way ticket out of my current school lol

    Grammar school students are elitist snobs, and will look down on you depending on what school you come from.

    It literally has not sunk it that it is tomorrow. I've still got the nervous feeling I've had for months, but not the ''oh crap, its tomorrow'' nervous feeling.

    My hands are shaking from looking at Edexcel grade boundaries.

    And I can't find the AQA IGCSE boundaries - I don't think they're out yet but I may be wrong. I can't find them.

    I'm not trying to be disrespectful or put you off, if it's what you want then go for it, but from my experience of visiting one the students at grammar schools think they are above those from normal public schools.

    And it can't really be justified. Grammar schools are full of much more middle-class people, and I overheard a lot of them saying the only expected to get D's and C's tomorrow. Whereas at my school, there are a lot of working class, poor background students who are expected to get all A*.

    The teaching and that you get probably will be better, in fairness, and you might come out with better results if you apply yourself. Just try and stay grounded and remember we are all equal!

    Me too! Hopefully 30/45 for an A in reading and 26/40 for an A in listening. Probably would be 37/45 for an A* for reading and 32/40 for an A* in listening.

    The wait...

    The tension of knowing how badly we're gonna fail :'(
    (joking of course)


    I think I screwed up my German exams so badly, I really want them to be low so there's a glimmer of hope for tomorrow! German is the one subject I'm really worried for!
