    Expecting to get no A*'s and may miss the A in English Lit thanks to Edexcel setting a high boundary :/ Even more worried now, wasn't too bad until today! Not long to go at least.
    Today has been the worst, but imagine if they'd released the boundaries a month ago, that would have been a month of hell.

    I thought the English Lit boundary was unexpectedly high too!

    I think it's ridiculous! So many people found that exam hard across the board so this isn't going to be a good results day. :/ I need to get a VERY high B to get an A and thus go to uni. Problem is, I know the exam didn't go well at all! Eng. Lit is my weakest subject...

    Ok guys, my firm is LSE and on Monday I received an email about fees and how they are holding special presentations throughout September and October about them.

    What do you guys think this means? I got in or am I being naive?

    it says it on the first page. the one that's 01R is a similar exam taken in other countries that are 6.5 to 9hours above the UK.

    I agree! I just hope that I haven't done as badly as I think I have. I will run down the high street stark naked if it means they will give me an A in Eng. Lit!

    That's what I'm hoping. Maybe we're just blowing it out of proportion because of stress, we should be fine

    Thank you. Never read the first page anyways when you're so worried about grades and want to see the boundaries straight away.

    There's this giant drum roll going on in my head . I've never woken up with such a giant sense of impending doom as today. Like I woke up and was like **** this is going to be a miserable day, not going to be able to do anything but worry.

    Rest assured, my prediction was correct. I've barely left the house and keep logging onto track every hour, and have made a giant list of uni's for clearing possibilities though if I think about it rationally, I should most definitely make my insurance. But that kind of thinking goes out of the window before results day clearly. Its all doom and gloom here .
