    I have to pay £20 - why different prices??
    I don't think my college charges for ID cards. :awesome: Well, if they do they haven't mentioned it yet.

    I am I have to get the bus to school on Thursday too so I keep thinking that I'm going to collapse from anxiety and what-not at the bus stop. I need someone else to be on the bus with me otherwise I probably won't be able to cope!
    I have planned everything in the likely even that I have one ._. Luckily my mums agreed to take me to my school to get my results ^.^

    It's only for AS hence why it doesn't matter. I took Econimcs for GCSE and it was too boring. I won't get into a top uni anyway so doesn't really matter, I've emailed unis I want to go to and they a said its fine even for A2! So I'm doing Maths, Business, Politics & psychology.

    Ours in the same, maybe the cost of ID cards goes into the college fund!
    Plus all the school trip are riduculous too

    Why wont you get into a top uni?? Why not aim high??

    A college can not ask £150 for 1 ID card.
    If i were you, i would be suspicious with what they are doing with that money (even if it goes into the college fund).

    Have you got your enrolment day letter?? If it says nothing on there to do with your ID card, then yours is free!

    I really do wonder these freaking damn colleges have so many different prices for ID cards!

    Ah, lucky you My parents are both working that day. That being said, it could technically be more tense in the car - last year my dad took me and I got incredibly nervous; didn't help that he didn't put any music on though. Also getting the bus means I can go into town to drink my sorrows/celebrate/breathe a heavy sigh of relief whereas if I was going in the car I'd be going in and going back home in the space of about ten minutes.

    Blegh. I want the day to come but I also don't. It's a horrid wait.

    That's alright then and I'll probably get an A anyway but I won't be happy with a B as I need 9 A*/A s for medicine
    I'm only doing 9 subjects.

    Well my GCSE are just average. ABBBBBBCC

    I didn't meant it all goes for the ID card but some of it must. Well it is a good college so I don't mind too much. It just seems a lot compared to before!

    Yes, I have got my enrolment letter and it doesn't say anything about a charge. Woo!

    Isn't it optional for some colleges? It is compulsory at my college so I guess that's why they don't charge. Unless it is compulsory at yours as well then it seems a bit unfair.

    So I'll be getting 2 non-GCSE's (they're not BTECs) which has pissed me off as my school decided to change those for people who were struggling, as well as 6 GCSE's on the day - [I already have an A in Maths and Core Science]

    So altogether I should have 8 GCSE's and 2 other qualifications, is this a massive problem for me if I want to study at a Russel Group Uni? My predictions are all A/A*s but I'm not sure I'll get those

    Won't be a problem, just the grades that matter but not a lot compared to AS.

    Oh, why Cardiff?

    I can't stand it. Some people seem to think it's stupid that I'm worrying, even I do really, but I seriously think I didn't do enough to get the grades I want.

    Im sure them gcses are fine!
    You probably wont get into oxbridge, but the ones like UCL and kings college are more than happy to accept you.

    Out of curiosity, is your college rated 'outsanding' by ofsted?

    Sadly for results day I'm away, so I've got my sister to go in and open my results while skyping me. It's better than waiting for another two weeks for them

    Ahh good, I'm going to really try much harder this next two years to get the best grades that I can, and surely they want top AS grades, personal statement etc?
    Also if I were to study law, how do I go about getting work experience; or does that only apply to medicine students?

    I wouldn't pay attention to Ofsted. My school is rated outstanding when it really isn't
