    yea quite close, how long does it take by car? I remember it being around an hour and a half or so
    ahah well im sure you'll be pleasantly surprised
    yea definitely, my school don't open till 10ish so I wont be able to resist for 2 hours also I don't care what grades I end up with (within reason) as long as I get into uni/my firm
    I'm not quite sure by car, I live in Devon, it's just I like the business and rush of London. XD But by train it can be just 50 minutes to King's Cross and costs only £6 if you get it in advance. Aha, I think I've researched this too much.
    Yes, that's what I'm thinking, I don't think I could resist the temptation! I also think I'd rather know via UCAS track if I didn't get into my firm as it would save the embarrassment of crying in front of all my friends and teachers. But then, it would be so much nice to have my friends around me if I do get the grades. I've not decided yet.

    I got a D in january after having told my teacher that it went alright :facepalm: So, i took the resit in the summer and i genuinely think it went worse!
    Edexcel maths is mine, i'm guessing you're on the same since you hated C3?
    I thought i was good at English until A-levels - but then i learnt that everything in books is about sex in someway :laugh:
    ahhhh that musta been a tad awkward aha.
    well if the opposite happens again youll do well
    na I was ocr but it was equally bad
    ahah really, ur lessons must have been interesting then

    Psychology (officially called Experimental Psychology, but that's just too long a name to tell people).
    Kings is really good too, but they don't do a proper Psychology course. London is just a bit too busy for me too, but I know some people love living there. What is your insurance choice then?
    oo cool! Quite a few people here are doing psychology.
    ahh really, do you think you woulda applied if they did? I live in london so im use to the craziness
    brighton yours?

    Low grade boundaries are always a plus!
    Maybe people did better in M2 than what they thought
    Yh I know it just makes me wish I sat the paper! , I don't think I'll be one of those people though unfortunately .

    So many people. Lots of people at my school are going to do it too, including two of my friends.
    Probably not. I visited UCL and liked it, but I think London is just a bit to crazy for me. It just feels like it's in a rush all the time. But, like I said, some people love that.
    Ooh, Brighton is a lovely place (I applied to Sussex, so visited Brighton when I was there). Mine is Nottingham.
