    I did! I really hated the exam... I think it's unfair - there are some people in my class who have a real talent for drama but struggled with the written paper and come out with grades that are way lower than they deserve. Good luck for tomorrow!
    I didn't like the exam either! I was really angry because some people didn't even try as hard as I did in the controlled assessment but got higher marks! I am one mark off an A* in the c.a element, which puts a lot of pressure on the exam result , which unfortunately has high grade boundaries ! My teacher gave us no help whatsoever for the exam, so all of us died when we got the paper ... Grr... I really wanted an A* in drama as well

    I'm dreading opening that envelope, I've read the articles how schools are prepared for the harshest marking yet and grade predictions to fall dramatically, the usual doom and gloom in other words. I've got a lot riding on that piece of paper, namely a very elitist sixth form place and all I'm envisioning now is imminent disappointment

    The C grade boundary is what is getting hit the most, you have no reason to worry ;p

    I'm looking forward to it in a weird way. As long as I get back into school, I really don't mind what I get (provided it's a B or higher) and although I was nervous, now i'm just genuinely interested to know how I did :P

    saying that, I probably should be worrying at this point, arrgh idk anymore

    It doesn't really make a difference - if you could apply to 5, there would be more people applying to each uni so the competition would be just as much, if not more.
    Yeah that's true I would have just liked more chances y'know? Oh well no big deal just means we make better decisions I guess

    YES. It was so they can take photos because we got 'good' results.

    I think that's right. With 4 options, it's difficult to get the balance right between the best universities that you have a small chance of getting to, and other universities which aren't quite as good but you've got a bigger chance of getting into. Fortunately, we've still got some time to decide!
    Exactly how i feel! Yeah you're right we do have time and A-Levels will probably put a whole different slant on things!

    Guys, I seriously need help xD I've chosen Physics, Chemistry and Spanish so far as my A level options, but for my last one I'm drawn between Geography and French I enjoy them both equally, I want to have a career in Languages but i worried that French would be way to much work combined with the other subjects I'm doing. So advice please!

    If you want a career in languages take French- if you love them then you'll enjoy the work.
    I would never take a language to A-Level though, I've always thought you would have to be so good to do it-the GCSE French and GCSE German are very challenging.You are going to be virtually fluent in Spanish next year.

    ur doing some pretty intense subjects and both Geog and french are gnna equally be hard to balance ....id suggest choosing french though...cos if you really want to do languages as a career i say the more the better lol plus from my KS3 and GCSE experience for both...i think i can say they complement each other pretty well but im not too sure im not a language expert..this is just my opinion
