    I'm so boredddd ahah, no idea what I should do!!
    Tried to sleep but nope, nope, nope.
    On the bright side- went from level 79 to 86 tonight on Candy Crush! Woooooo :L

    Now that I think about it, I'm not too nervous for my results, more like excited and curious. A bit anxious though, but wahey, gives you a bit of an adrenaline rush whilst you open that envelope

    I'm so tired and I don't know why I'm awake, honestly. I'm partly scared I'll oversleep which will be a disaster. I go to collect mine in five hours.

    Haha, feel the same way about the oversleeping. However, I collect mine at 11am so I'll have a few hours to recharge myself

    There's no set amount a*'s (Unless you're applying for medicine) needed.However Oxford puts more emphasis on GCSE's than Cambridge but a standard Cambridge offer will ask for higher A-levels (A*AA) and a better UMS performance at AS-level.Roughly a third of candidates make it through to the interview stage at Oxford (and I presume it's something similar at Cambridge).Once at the interview stage "all bets are off" as it were. But don't worry about your GCSE's too much and if you really want to go just apply anyway you never know.

    I've made a deal with my mum that, if I get the right grades (her right), then I get to go to study IB in a really good school so I'm so nervous!
    Mainly because I want to go to do IB.
    Thats a good deal 👌 which school are you looking at?
