    whenever I think I've failed, I've usually done well - take my last piece of coursework (politics - russell group standard) - I thought it was the worst piece of work I ever did, yet it got a 1st. contrast that with one of my first pieces this year where I worked day and night on it, yet it got a low 2:2.

    Back when I was doing GCSEs
    I wanted 10A*
    Before the exams I thought I'd get 9A* with an A in English Literature
    After the exams
    I thought I had at least 8A*-10A* as I thought I was borderline A/A* in RE & English Literature.
    Ended up with 10A* yay.

    Now for AS
    What I want...
    AAAA with 90%+ UMS in Maths & Further Maths

    What I think I will get
    AAAA - 90% UMS in Maths & scrape an A in FM (lol im being so nice to myself)
    I'm slowly getting there with further maths ok.

    lol lets hope its like my gcse predictions again

    Why would you get an a* in further maths and not normal maths? lool that's really weird
    further maths is more interesting to me and less content. I've done exams which I haven't revised for FM and still managed to get A's. so with revision an A* is in reach (hopefully)

    And I messed up my non-calculator paper (revised the day before) and will need 90+ to get an A* overall. which is unlikely to happen. It was a good non-calc paper but I just made LOTS of silly mistakes

    im not specfiaclly being rude to you, but knowing the average A*s to get into oxbride dosen't make a difference, as im going to get A*s in all my subjects hopefully
    Hi, I don't mean to be rude or sound smart, but your English doesn't seem to be good enough for you to be able to do exceptionally well in many subjects, yet the grades you have given suggest otherwise. You also didn't seem to understand someone's sarcastic statement.

    This thread is really cute

    I personally haven't set any targets for myself because I'm scared that I'll set my expectations too high and end up with a massive disappointment.(I'm not the brightest)

    It's really reassuring to know that I'm not the only one having doubts about the outcome of these exams.

    Nonetheless, I really hope you all achieve the grades you want, if not better. I'm sure you'll all be happy regardless of the results you get. Good luck!

    Thank you. This is such a cute comment. I am scared myself that I won't get the grades that I want but it's better to aim really high so you can at least get the grade below it in my opinion. I am sure that you're really smart and will get really good results that you will be proud of on results day. For now the most we can do is revise as hard as we can and do the exams to the best of our ability. But remember, your hard work is never wasted.

    How have people done Core Science in Y10? Our school told us we could not sit GCSE's in year 10 as of new laws or something, guessing they are talking a load of bull****?
