    Predicted A* A* A* A* but I'd take anything above A* A* A A to be honest

    don't do that love. Because you'll go looking for the grade boundaries and things. And when you do that. Bad things happen - i.e you convince yourself you've not even made your insurance.

    I'm deadly serious. It's almost a life or death situation. On one hand, you can slap the arrogant down with your equal amount of A*s, or even better them with even more, where you'll be able to witness the intricate but brilliant slight change of the human emotion shown by the face; eyes losing hope, steam given out of the ears, face reddening - as they come to terms with the fact that they are not the best, because I am - me! The alpha, the omega, the absolute, me!

    Or you can tell them as they approach about your generic Cs and Bs, and then watch their ego inflate to an unimaginable size.

    In all honesty after school nobody gives a flying crud how many A*s you have.

    7 days still feels far away to me though. I just want to know now so I can finally move forward .

    I guess the last few days drags when all you have to do is sit and wonder whether which becomes a reality:dreams or nightmares

    Simon... really?! And there was me thinking I'd given my name away (unwittingly) through my username. Doh!

    Unless this guy is actually trolling, I have no idea why he's being negged. If somebody wrote 'Predicted BBBB but I'd take anything above BBCC' their comment would go unnoticed. People have personal grade targets, something all the reverse snobs on here seem to forget.

    It's the way he said it. 0 modesty as though it's expected that everyone would get A*A*AA or above

    That's not true? What if his offer is​ A*A*AA he has every right to say he'd 'settle' for A*A*AA.

    I don't know if they have been officially published, but somebody uploaded them onto TSR. Then again, it is TSR, the lengths that some people will go to.

    I think they're the official ones that people have posted. Either that or people have taken unofficial mark scheme to a whole new level.

    Tell me about it. Think it's better to just leave the marking to the examiners but there are people on TSR who are confident that they know exactly what they've got in certain exams - it'll just leave to disappointment imo.

    To be honest, those 2As will really make you struggle getting into Bolton.

    I'd suggest taking a gap year and reapplying for Oxford.
