    Quick question : Do you think its ok if we drop by like maybe 3 points? As in if I miss my offer by 3 whole points have I lost all my chances of getting accepted (cause i feel like i will lose my offer by more than just 2 points)
    I kind of think it depends on the unis you've chosen and how strong your application is! Im sure you'll do well enough to not need to worry about it anyway

    As far as I can tell, there isn't already one of these.

    How does everyone feel coming up to the exams?

    What are your hopes and predictions?

    On a different note I AM SO GLAD our results come out a month before A Levels. It means our unis may prioritise us.. right? Isn't that like an advantage? Or does it really not make a difference ?
    They don't prioritise us. If you've missed your offer, you still have to wait for them to receive the UMS of A Level students throughout A Level results day and then they'll make a decision on your application accordingly.

    Currently really struggling with Economics SL... I've been reciting the theory for a week now and everyday I've forgotten half of it. if I have to recite one more page of economics I might lose it. Can't wait for it to be over.

    I feel you, I'm HL and I'm DYING. Econ is gonna be a pain in the ass no doubt - also last year's questions were disappointingly difficult, hoping to God it isn't this time around either.

    English language and literature P2 (The big hard one)

    Economics HL P2
    Economics HL P3 (my personal weakest)

    And the day before the exam (Tomorrow) I finish my exams at 4pm so half the day is already gone - leaving me with very little time to revise properly

    I did the poem! I started off really well but my timekeeping skills were awful and so I didn't talk about the end of the poem in as much depth unfortunately :-(
    But I still think I may have just scraped a 7 if I'm lucky! Paper 2 tomorrow, does anyone have any tips??
