    I'm trying to find a job in retail, but it's very hopeless without relevant experience Even Primark rejects me with automated emails haha...
    I play the piano and the guitar and well... PS4 and I study physics

    Could you lose weight afterwards?
    Bhs are closing but are looking for people. I gave them my cv and he gave me the job the same day. I have no retail experience..and the pay is better then most because it's £7.20 an hour when it should be 6.50 for under 21s. So I get £300 approx a week..

    If you work for BHS make sure to get on friendly terms with your line manager/supervisor and ask if you can ave their contact details for them to be a reference for other jobs. Getting a reference from an employer that has closed down is a pain so if you're on friendly terms and can put future employers in direct contact with an old line manager then you save yourself hassle

    There's nothing on BHS's website about careers (I just see page not found?)

    Shall I go to the store in person?

    Yup, we all find out what we got on the same day and if you're in year 13 and have offers for uni, you find out if you've been accepted to uni too

    Sort of

    Most schools in England, Wales and NI offer A levels - those results all come in on the same day.
    Scottish schools offer Highers and Advanced Highers - those results come in about a week and a half before the A levels.
    Some schools offer BTECs in vocational subjects - those results come out throughout June and July
    And some schools offer IB which came out this week

    A2

    AS grades
    AAAA

    A2 predictions
    My predicted grades are A*A*A* but I'm just hoping for A*AA as that's what I need for my firm choice!

    What subjects are you taking?

    Biology (AQA) Chemistry (AQA), Maths (Edexcel)

    How are your exams going?
    All the Biology exams went very well imo although I don't want to jinx it! Chem4 and Chem6 were tough, but Chem5 was lovely. In Maths, C3 went REALLY well, C4 went pretty well, D1.... meh. (Pretty much the OPPOSITE of what I expected in Maths, as I thought C3 and C4 would be disastrous!)
    To which university are you hoping to go to?
    Durham University (College of St Hild and St Bede!)

    To study what?
    Chemistry

    How are you feeling about results day?
    Strongly mixed feelings but mainly just really scared! I think the majority of my exams went well but I don't know if I will get the grades I need considering how hard Chem 4 and D1 were... so I don't want to get my hopes up!

    Does any one have any clue on what grade boundaries are going to be like this year?? most papers are still out of the same marks as last years but new spec papers have some differences in their structures, was wondering if anyone had an idea on what grade boundaries might be like considering that there are no ISA's this year which can really boost grades and that its first year of new specification

I have a general idea of what I'm ment to do after I get my results with UCAS, but could someone just run me through the procedure(I'm not applying to Oxbridge)
