    What you think you've got:

    worst case: 6 A* (Maths, art, biology,rs, further maths,latin) 5 As (drama,history, english lang, english lit, classical civilisation)

    realistic: 8 A* 3As (english lang, history, drama)

    best case: 1 A* distinction (Further maths) 9 A* 1A (english lang)

    Predicted grades:

    For some reason they didn't tell us our predicted grades! D:

    What you've actually got:

    I don't know yet but will find out soon!

    How are you feeling about results day?

    Really nervous because I worked really hard so would be extremely disappointed if I got bad results.

    How are you going to open your results?

    by email

    What A levels are you doing?

    Maths, latin, religious studies and art

    or possibly history instead of latin depending on my results

    Are you going to record your GCSE results on YouTube? (If so I can't wait to see it!)

    I don't think so but you never know! I can't wait to see everyone's though

    Everyone on here predicts to **** A*'s and I'm only going to get one (Maths obviously). But I don't care I guess. I'm worried I won't pass subjects though or get the required for next year, while people on here worry they won't **** enough A*'s
    Well, it depends entirely on the person's individual goals and their expected progress. If I'm predicted 10 A*s, then obviously something like 6 A*s means I haven't met my target and I've underperformed. If I'm predicted 10 B's, then a C will mean I've underperformed and an A means I've done better than expected.

    I know some posts on tsr may seem petty to other students, but we all have different expectations of ourselves.

    I know your not asking me gut I'm bored

    I found the exam easy but the controlled assessment quite hard (hence why it's impossible for me to get an A* because I got 2 low-mid As but I think I'll get an A overall

    I found it the other way around haha, but that's probably because I didn't revise at all for the exam. I'm counting on my controlled assessments to pull me through, considering they are worth 60% of the final grade.

    44 in A453 and 43 in A452 so i only need a low A to get an A*
    the exam was pretty good for me too, although on the way there i heard someone say 'they won't ask about arrays in the algorithm, that came up last year'
    hopefully the grade boundaries are in my favour, it's been the subject i've worked the most on - i was actually working at a C standard around December time lol
    Wow, I hope you get that A*! Moving from a C to an A* must not have been easy. And yeah, the a algorithm in the back wasn't the nicest question; I spent about twenty minutes on it.

    But I worry other people will be nervous to talk in this chat because people who have been predicted A*'s will be like oh no only got 7 A*'s what the hell I failed. And some people won't even get any C's. It's sad

    i can't wait to see the 'i got 9 A*s and an A in *unrelated subject* will this hold me back in getting an oxbridge offer' threads after results day
    sure i understand we all have our expectations but that's just being a bit of a mug

    thanks, i hope you get the grade you want too was pretty hard, since we'd had a terrible teacher all throughout year ten so had to redo most of the coursework. and no one knew anything about theory, we all failed in mocks haha but most people are expecting good grades after working super hard on it

    Kind of the reason why I probably won't be on TSR on results day (and bc I'm away). I just think that if I haven't done as well as I would have liked, people making threads like that to boost their own egos will most likely make me feel even worse yk

    I'm going on but it's just going to make me feel ****. People are just going to be disappointed with 9 A*'s because it's not 11 or some ****. You can be proud of it but imagine being "oh I did so bad."
    And having a reply "same only got 9 A*'s" and you go "oh I didn't even get A*'s...bye"

    Someone excited to fail 😂 Better than people whining they haven't got enough A*'s.
