    Is anyone else not nervous or just numb? I'm only doing AS's and I'm no where near over confident about my results, in fact I'm pretty sure I won't get what I want. At GCSE I was SO nervous and was having nightmares, yet nothing has happened with my AS's and they're more important!
    That happened to me last year (when I did AS). I was completely fine until I walked into the school, and that's when I started getting nervous.

    Same here, it seems a little unfair when some of my friends with Cambridge offers received letters telling them not to get too stressed out about their results as they would be accepted if they fell a few marks short, whilst places such as Durham hardly give any leeway
    probably because cambridge interviews people and they place a lot of emphasis on this, which means that if you pass the interview stage, it shows that they really want you

    Aw that's nice. I think if I had any family celebrations it would mostly consist of "Oh uhh well done, that's really great". And then we'd move on. XD
    Haha yes, one of my friends said that was really unhealthy and I was like "What?! You want to get completely hammered if you do badly. Surely that is the epitome of an unhealthy coping mechanism!" Silly girl.

    LOOL that sounds quite awkward
    ahhh thats so true, getting hammered should be left for once clearings done and youve got into uni
    hows this final day of waiting been for ya?

    What is the difference between paper 01 and paper 01R? Does the R signify replacement? I ask regarding the edexcel maths papers (especially C3!). If it did signify replacement then the replacement for C3 has ended up having higher boundaries than the original which doesn't seem right because those that saw both were unanimous in thinking that the original was easier. The difference between the two in raw marks for each grade is about 10 marks?! Anyone know anything more on this?

    Why won't the mods let the thread grow? Instead of opening a new one every time it reaches the limit?

    OK nervous people.

    I'm off to bed, good luck everyone in this thread - and remember everyone on TSR will be here to help you tomorrow if everything goes tits up (and to congratulate you if it all goes well).

    Read the stickies.

    Read the announcements.

    Try to post in the right place (and join in existing threads instead of starting new ones if you want to advisers to spot your posts).

    And if anyone wants me I can be summoned by magic by quoting me [ quote=PQ]x[/ quote] without the spaces.

    Good luck again - I'm sure you'll all be fine you're all smart enough to have found the best student forum online so you've got to be getting something right
