    I've been doing SO much "comfort shopping"
    Shoes are my current obsession. They help relieve the stress :P
    I've been comfort shopping too, just spent about two months' wages on stuff for reading festival and then just pointless stuff.. just for the sake of spending

    I meant as in you did well in it And thank you, I guess we'll both have to wait and find out! I'm just warning you my results are going to be nowhere near flowery so don't get too surprised if I end up getting E's or something!
    I doubt you'd get E's! Be confident with your own ability

    This is ****ing torture. I just want it to be over and done with, get my sub-spar results, realise how **** they are, decide that I'm not going to apply to Cambridge and spend some time wondering what I should do with my life.

    It hurts to know that I am not as smart as I think. Even worse that I can never be as smart as others.

    **** me.

    I ordered a Fender Jazz Bass for deliver the day after results. Hopefully it won't be a shameless guitar binge.

    I can imagine! Magdalen is one of the better known Oxford colleges, probably because they have a deer park (!) or two. They are said differently though (and spelt differently, obviously) which probably makes some people more confused. I would rather be in a slightly less known college anyway - all those tourists could get irritating. Hence why New is so great as it's almost hidden down a little alley but is so big. Plus, there is a mound in the garden which squeaks when you clap in front of it.
    I'm still in two minds about whether the look at grade boundaries or not. On one hand I probably won't be able to stop myself, on the other it doesn't actually tell me anything about how I did.
    Me too! I try to seem neutral about it, but inside I'm just hoping and praying that I've got the grades for Oxford. Sure, you keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better :laugh:
    Oh yes, my friend has not failed to tell me. In fact I think that's the first thing he mentioned (several times also), the two deer parks I mean. Yes, that's a positive for not getting an offer from the college I applied for (King's), tourists seem to, for some reason, fear crossing the bridge over to the other side of river Cam so there aren't many at Magdalene. There's a mound which squeaks when you clap in front of it? I don't think I've quite understood the mechanics of that. XD
    I'm only really concerned about the Edexcel Maths grade boundaries as I've already checked the mark schemes and so I have a pretty good idea of what marks I've got. I don't think it would be as useful for other subjects.
    Yes, even though I think I've mentioned to my parents how anxious I am, too many times, I still don't think I've fully expressed it. It's like something that can only be understood if you've been put in a similar situation before. Oh no don't worry, I have no need for another's awe of Cambridge for me to feel pride for the university, it's magnificent enough already. :lol:

    Sleep.

    What is the difference between knowing not and knowing when you wake up?

    You'll only worry yourself more
    **** this, your a GCSE student, you don't understand how nervous we are, some of us feel we need to stay up to find out and we will do that
