    Bull****.

    It's not about where I "end up", but how I feel about myself.

    Getting into Oxbridge validates me as a person and gives me a sense of self-worth.
    Well then I pity you since the way you're acting suggests you'll throw a hissy fit and will mess up your A levels if things don't go your way.

    Best of luck

    1. They don't do my subject.
    2. I am not going to a ****ing university, well, no, they're nerdy in a bad way. They're not intelligent and passionate like Oxbridgers. Many can't communicate their subject at Imperial. It has that reputation for a reason.
    That's complete nonsense. If you believe that **** then you don't deserve to go anywhere decent.

    AQA is as always living up to my low expectations of it. And on that note, I bid you all farewell until tomorrow morning where we will all be crazy. :rolleyes:

    STEP boundaries are up at some point tomorrow (today if you're pedantic) and the results are released 24 hours from now. That's something to be scared about...
    I am pedantic . That's cool. Is it true the Uni receive the results a little before you so you can also check your UCAS to see if your offer's been confirmed?

    Stop being judgemental. People at imperial have done well to get in there. Have you thought that you might not be of that class? Or maybe resit if you feel that your grades don't represent your ability.

    Indulge me for a minute - I'm a confused parent! Why is it so important to find out grade boundaries when you don't know what marks you got in your exams?

    First time I stayed up late on this thing, and can finally say that we're getting our results tomorrow. Strangely I'm more excited than panicky... I bet that changes when I go to bed and wake up swearing like a sailor when it finally hits me that tomorrow is Thursday

    if getting into a uni determines your self worth then clearly the issue is not with the uni, but with you
    No.

    How do you feel about the Maths boundaries?
    C3 surprised me as well as C4 and M1 however I was hoping FP2 and M2 to just be a little lower, I'll miss my second A* by 2 marks it seems

    Like if you're listening to either 'Applause' or 'Roar'

    x
    Oh my Gosh! You like them both too?

    I must say, I prefer APPLAUSE, it just makes me feel like 'crazy', but in a good/dancy/POP way lol!

    Have you heard the VEVO version? The audio is like in a battle w/ Katy Perry's Roar Lol!

    You be the judge Students

    Applause :

    No-one says that people shouldn't go to Oxbridge but the issue is why does it have to be the very very best? People go to all sorts of universities and end up good in life. My dad's one of them.

    If it means so much to you then you can always take a gap year and reapply if you're not successful the first time.
