    Possible scenarios tomorrow:

    -Get results, get into either one of my Uni's, get high.

    OR:

    -Get results, don't get the grades, walk out the common room, get high.

    Do you get an email sometime today from your firmed university, telling you if you've been accepted or declined? I know you get an email from UCAS telling you your track has been updated but I was wondering whether to expect one from my firmed university too

    Depends on the university as far as I know.

    I'm just lying in bed listening to other members of my family happily snoring away. Tempted to just wake them up and say: no , you can't go back to sleep: I need someone else to feel my nervousness with

    But that'd be nasty

    BCCE (should always +1 when moving onto A2 to get an approx final grade).

    However that is not definitive; you can always change.

    B - Law
    C - History
    C - Psychology
    E - Sociology (90% of the class got Us. The teacher wasn't fired but removed from A-levels to access only)

    What about you?
    Well for my subjects, I'm hoping to get:
    A- ICT
    B or A - RE
    A- Sociology
    C- Media

    But I think I'm being a little optimistic and probably won't get the grades that I want.

    I always have 3 approaches to results. My hopeful grades, my realistic grades and my slightly optimistic and potentially possible grades. Aha! :rolleyes:

    I think it's safer that way... you can kind of brace yourself for the best and potentially worse.
