    Yep, physics . Unit 1 exam was horrendous. In my defence, it didn't deserve the title of a physics exam. One of the questions was on the social implications of e-books!

    Preparing for the worst (clearing) and hoping for the best (being accepted into firm).

    What exactly do you mean by "preparing for clearing"?

    Same! I think PSYA3 went strangely well, and PSYA4 was a heap better than January. Either that or it was so much of a blur that I only think I've done well. :lol:
    i did a resit of PSYA2 which was actually, i think, more difficult than PSYA4. the only thing that threw me about PSYA4 was that i was expecting just one long answer question, 24 marks or something, and that kind of put me off...

    Did anyone do Psychology A2 on OCR? And also find the applied exam was ridiculously hard?

    This is going to make me sound like such an idiot, but the email we get on results day:
    1) Is it just "SOMETHING ON TRACK HAS CHANGED!" or will it actually tell us if we're in or not?
    2) What sort of time do people get it? Does everyone get them sent out at the same time, or is it just as and when?

    Oh I see! Now I feel a little bit silly . Sounds like me after my physics exam. Don't know how much you know about physics (probably more than I know about anatomy!), but it was a standing waves question, where we had to times the distance between 'hotspots' by 2, then use the wave equation to find the wavelength. I finished the exam, and afterwards I had this niggling feeling that I'd forgotten something. About a day later I was walking down the street, not even thinking about it, then just realised "I forgot to times by 2!", and facepalmed. Even more annoying because going into the exam I was thinking "got to remember to times by 2!"
    I did physics to AS level and still maintain a nerdy interest. :ahee:

    It's the worst feeling as well, because you properly kneeew it as well!

    Not a stupid question at all.

    Yeah you're totally right, it's just a "TRACK HAS CHANGED. OMGOMGOMG." e-mail. No specifics in it, have to log into Track to see what's going on!
    They get sent out around about the same time, but there are obviously variations, and not everyone's decision will be processed quite yet, for a variety of reasons.

    Did anyone else insure a really low offer just for the security only to regret it now? I'm tempted to ask them to release me because I don't want to go there...but I like the security of my CCC offer...

    i really don't know how this got negged...it isn't particularly offensive... :confused:
    aww, I almost did this but then I thought "why not just take the risk?".. I didn't want a situation where I got the grades of the uni I didn't ensure.
    On the plus side you are so so safe, and you know where you are going and can enjoy your holiday!

    I'm absolutely terrified of results day, I'm more afraid of what my parent's reaction will be more than anything else. My sisters did really well in their A Levels and so there's so much pressure on me to get good AS results. I have stereotypical Asian parents and they expect me to ace it :/


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I feel you. My parents are saying no pressure but you can tell they really do hope you get all As. My sister got A*AA :/ I can't even get A*!
