    I know it's only 4 weeks (papers have now all been marked and will be going through quality control now) but I feel like I'm not worried at all. And I'm rather scared that I'm not worried.

    Yh I'm surprisingly calm but I should be panicking given English Lang will be subjectively mark and so they could rob me off my uni place if they're in a bad mood when it comes to marking ! Argh

    Is it just one essay? If not you might find different questions are marked by different people.

    Nah it's like 2 sections, and 2 10 markers and 2 40 markers so yes hopefully different people do mark the questions ; I didn't think of that before !

    Oh no, it's getting closer. Dreading it every passing day to be honest, and I become more convinced that I've failed. Thanks AQA C3
    I was originally aiming for A*A*A, which was achievable, but now I'm feeling like I was kidding myself and am now assuming I got CCC...

    I probably lack confidence...

    I've started to doubt myself on everything. Honestly I could get anything from A*A*A* down to CCC at this point.
    The worst part is that I can do nothing but worry for four weeks

    How many modules does it have in A2/overall? (the number of modules usually determines the criteria for A*)

    How do you know that all the papers have been marked?
    The general timeline.
    A week before results day the papers have already been graded and marked to go to unis.
    A week before that is float, in case something goes wrong they have time to fix it.
    The week before that is setting grade boundries and if nessesary removing questions plus assigning grades.
    The weeks before that is the time where head examiners are checking examiners work and making sure nothing went wrong plus sending things to remark if they did.

    If exams haven't been though their first marking by now things are running slow.
