    It finally, and I mean properly, with full force hit me today. I think I did quite well in my exams but because all my questions were so nice it gives me even more anxiety that the grade boundaries will be increased and my chance of getting the grades I need are slipping away. Damn you AQA.

    If you're applying for a minority (or actually not so in-demand) subject for a top uni, do you think there's a chance they will go a little easier on me? I hope so anyway.

    This is literally what I'm hoping!! My course only started about four years ago so I'm hoping they really want to expand the course (so will be more lenient). Good luck!

    Well it does make sense... And maybe it should be sooner still because there are still a 6th on applicants who will be down as pending on results day.
    It also means you get some people who know a day or 2 in advanced due to getting welcome packs from their uni which isn't really fair but obviously everyone would love to be one of them.

    I'd probably only argue that people who don't apply to uni should get their grades earlier maybe but that's it.
    A welcome pack? That's new? I have never heard of this situation!!!

    That's because a part of that final term payment is to cover your costs over the summer. In your final year the final payment will be a fair bit smaller because they assume you'll be working from May/June onwards (or at least able to claim JSA).

    its happened to one or two friends so it is fairly uncommon. Most (I believe some don't) unis send you a welcom pack/confirmation letter. Every so often it gets delivered early.

    Ohhhhh okay, that makes some sense. Although I'd have thought they would assume that you were staying with your parents over the summer so you wouldn't need money.

    You could always just try it for a month or so and drop it if you're struggling, I wouldn't give it up simply because you think it might be difficult

    Have people received letters or w.e. from college about how to get their results and stuff? I haven't been told anything yet by mine and with only 4 weeks to go I'm kinda concerned ://

    Oh nvm I just checked our VLE and there is a section saying we can go pick them up before 1pm otherwise they get posted to us.

    Our college has told us nothing and has apparently been telling the year 12s that results day is the 26th....I knew they were bad but good god
