    That's how I feel about Math unfortunately. Turned down going to give my maths teacher a class present with friends today because I felt too ashamed of myself. An A is still pretty good though (as long as two other A Levels are A* :yep:)

    Yeah I was done on Friday. It's so strange not having any studying to do lol
    It'll be so strange having 3 whole months without tests and exams

    I'll be completely lost for things to do (I don't have a life outside academia), so I might be in competition with Insight as to who can complete IA first (he will probably still win)

    Last exam! I am a free man now!

    Predicting A*A*A in Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry, and 1,1,S in STEP I/II/III. Let's see how it goes.

    Physics went surprisingly well today, nice way to finish the 25 exam period.

    Whats ur offer lads ?

    Missing offer is just horrible especially for a reapplicant like me, too too shameful
    A*AA, mercifully. But I was predicted A*A*A* and I'll still be disappointed if (who are we kidding, it's "when") I don't get it, especially since I did so well in maths and FM mocks

    (Original post by Serine Soul)
    Yeah I'll feel bad too. He put A* all year in my progress reports lol. Though tbh I'd just be happy to scrape my offer at this stage. While Biology exams generally went okay, there's still a lot of uncertainty around them I'm okay with chem though, I think, despite having to teach myself the whole spec just a week before the exams
    Yeah, I'm pretty confident I got an A* on Bio5, but Bio4 was such a weird paper I literally could have got a C or full UMS - it was all suggest questions and interpreting data and nonsense like that, so it's basically down to chance

    I feel much better about Psych, but OCR Psych has ridiculous 15-mark questions where if you word the first sentence wrong you can drop almost all of the marks for it. So I'm basically just praying that didn't happen

    Probably some coding, and learning to write up LaTex

    Maybe I'll learn the piano, and/or learn German (that'll come in very handy now!), but apart from that I cannot think what else I can reasonably do

    From what me and the other steppers have predicted Duke has got 1,2,1 or 1,1,1 . He has got in for sure, unfortunately that may not the problem for him due to the international funding problems.

    Maths offer: So having basically finished all my exams I reckon I've got A*A*AB (A in chemistry, B in physics) and S,2,2 in STEP I/II/III and my offer was A*A*A (A in physics) and 1,1 in STEP II/III. So if this is actually what I've got (and I like to think I'm being more pessimistic than optimistic) what are my chances of still being accepted?

    I've collected many tiny jars from my baby brother's meals and I'm going to see what I can do with those :yep: (I'm thinking candles)
    I've also got loads of spare and interesting fabrics lying around that may need a creative touch
    That sounds fantastic!
