    You never know... In my opinion the grade boundaries will be average because we could say, we students are the lucky ones because the education system is getting changed completeley e.g. No Speaking Controlled Assessment anymore.

    I wish I could pick up my results and run home but results day at my school is also the day you choose your sixth form options. I really want to take 4 A-Levels so a fail would be the worst thing that could happen to me especially if it is in maths or English. I feel so anxious waiting

    Did you not get one on the weekday after college?
    I think you're talking about a part time job, I don't know my timetable yet so I didn't want to risk getting one which would interfere with an actual lesson!

    :eek: Are English, Maths and Science the only core subjects? In that case, that only applies to my English Language as I've already done Science and Maths! Oh dear.

    After reading these posts looks like the UK's system is much nicer than where I live.:/ We're allowed to do only up to 5 IGCSE's, wish i could take economics or accounting cause it's an interesting course and very helpful but i couldn't. So is anyone doing Physics Chem Maths for A-levels?

    I'm nervous too . I've already picked my options and need to get the grades to be able to do them. I honestly don't know what I would pick if I don't get the results I need.

    I think the biggest factors are if you enjoy literature and any career aspirations. What are you thinking of career wise? There is a coursework for English but I've been told its not that bad

    I don't really have a career in mind, I just wanted to keep my options open. I might go into phys, maths, engineering, medicine, modern languages or English (or both). But I would need chem for medicine.

    Don't even think about it - pretend you never even did GCSEs. Start to think about it the day before or on the day of results day, otherwise you're just needlessly worrying/panicking! Just enjoy your summer holiday.

    Don't think about it, no one can change it now.
    I hope your hard work pays off, believe in yourself.
    At the end of the day its all about whether you've done your best
