    I felt the same - was it OCR?
    That's right OCR. How do you get on with it? What is your offer from Oxford?

    Are you talking about F334 this morning? I am in the same state as you if that is the case.

    Let's just say these exams aren't going the best I hoped...
    Anyone else in this boat?
    I am petrified I wont meet my offer. If things don't go to plan I will be clinging to the fact they take Welsh Bacc for some subjects and that sometimes, just sometimes, people get in after missing their offer

    At least you know you got company in screwing up this exam. And all holding Oxford offers...

    Think how the others will be up to.

    What offer did you get?

    See my sig :awesome:

    We're a rare breed though and it's all decided on an individual, case-by-case basis, so don't rely on it though! :nah:

    You give us all hope for if something doesn't quite go to plan on results day But trust me I'm not relying on it and working bloomin' hard to make sure I do get those A's, it's really not the kind of opportunity I want to miss out on!

    I am very much in this boat...
    Annoyingly I'm also finding the fear leads to stressing out during my exams and therefore to a poorer performance. (A big well done to my subconscious for that one)
    On top of that, the irrational part of me is also constantly thinking that if I meet my offer but don't get any A*'s I'll be the thickest person there.
    Is it just me?!
    I noticed you have an offer from St Catz. If you can get any say in which room you have try and get one over looking the pond at the front. You'll thank me when you want to be distracted from work and have pretty coy carp to watch incredibly good for when you're stressing out. Try not to stess out now though!

    Not to downplay anyone's achievement, but aren't all Oxford offers only AAA? And if you worked hard for your AS Levels, then surely you only need around a C/low B in your A2 modules to actually get an A overall?

    Haha sorry! I'm guessing you probably need an unconditional offer to open a student bank account and receive the subsequent overdraft privileges if not to apply for government finance
    I didn't read what you wrote properly :facepalm2:
    (Not very good for a Law student.)

    Yeah, you don't even need an offer to apply for student finance I don't think, but for student accounts you do.

    I know that feeling. I got it January last year. The novelty of "being old this year" had worn off by February, IIRC.

    Fittingly, this just popped up on my twitter:

    Haha, no, I didn't. Plus, I'm not really in any position to comment as I'm not taking A Levels (I do the IB).

    But, what I am saying is that the A* grade motivates you to work for A2 modules, whereas you can kind of rest on your laurels if you have high UMS marks in your AS modules if you only need an A.
