    3 consecutive nightmares last night about results day

    I need my English Lang to have been marked by someone really sympathetic and with a good sense of humour because I was so delirious that day. I had stayed up the night before crying about Add Maths and my writing piece was basically me on a rant about how I hate OCR (which is the same exam board as my English) and because I was so tired, virtually none of it made sense and there was no clear structure and ughghghghhghghghgh

    To help some of you,
    I thought I would get 4A*s and 3As and 2Bs on top of my 2A*S I already got.

    The marking is far more lenient than you think.
    To put it this way, I got 11A*s and I never thought it was possible.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for re-lighting the glimmer of light for my French


    Furthermore, Why is everyone counting down!?

    I thought I got a D in Spanish, which is what I did.
    Turned out because the marking is so lenient, I got an A*.
    It's good.

    I think English language and literature markers are much more lenient than you guys think; history too.

    I'm pretty sure maths is pretty harsh though

    I hope they're lenient this year! Part of me is excited and part of me is crapping myself everytime I'm reminded of the day getting closer

    So scared. I have wet myself several times, suffer from insomnia and fall on the ground crying for no reason.
    I always gotta go toilet and my head hurts every time I fart.
    I can't wait any longer for results

    Whenever I do Question 6 in the AQA English Language Paper, I always have some sort of funny rant on paper and it usually turns out great, my other questions go down hill.

    Question 2's pun about Bear Grylls made me cringe so much I cried inside😂😭😂

    I didn't do aqa but I always like to include some humour so the reader isn't bored

    i can't even remember the question but so many people who took admaths the day before wrote about it because it was so hard
    the exams i did with ocr were some of the worst i've ever done... what are you hoping for in admaths?

    The question was something like "Write about a time in your life when you found something difficult but didn't expect it to be".
    I didn't really write about Addmaths, it was a mix of a trillion different things and I think my main thing was about that English exam itself, only because of Addmaths.
    I was hoping for an A, but I've kind of resigned myself to the fact that I'm not going to get an A so....
    Did you take Addmaths?
    Apart from AddMaths and English, the only other OCR exam I did was RS and I found that absolutely fine (thankfully).

    I keep having nightmares about my last history exam...they're always similar. Two nights ago, I dreamt that I'd only done an evening's worth of intensive revision before my last exam (which is not true, I had three whole days to rewrite my notes and do past papers)
    And it's just really getting to me.
    I'm so worried that I haven't got into the sixth form that all of my friends are going to (because if I get a b in one of my a level subjects, I'm not allowed in, as it's a grammar school)
    Realistically, I know that I prepared for all my exams the best that I could, but what if it wasn't enough? History's my worst subject because although I love the content, the exams **** me sideways. And if I've got a B in either biology or chemistry, I may as well just off myself because that's my entire life plan scuppered, as I want to do Biology at university (and then maybe a postgrad in medicine at some point)
    Worst of all, if I don't get into that school, I'll have to go to my local college, with my piece of **** ex best friend and the awful girl I used to fancy (I mean awful. She cheats on her boyfriend all the time and has forbidden anybody from telling him and I'm super scared about seeing her again because I think I still like her).
    I know nobody will reply to this thread (and I'm not looking for attention or anything, I swear), but writing down my feelings is making me feel better in some way. So. Yeah.

    I know on results day that my body is going to wake me up at a ridiculous time like 6 or 7 when I won't be able to get them until half 9. My body wants me up early to let my anxiety really kick in.

    @pascalscasino don't worry, if you've done revision before the exam, you should be fine, I do hope you'll do alright and get to your sixth form :P

    Check to see if other schools and colleges will accept you on results day.
    Will you be on the same course/same classes as the Ex and the Awful girl?
    Why are you scared to see her if you still like her?
    Remember, we're all our own worst critics - we think we've done so much worse than we usually have.
    Have faith in yourself.
    Remember to breathe.
    And I'm pretty sure ranting to the world is the way that most of us feel better.
    Good luck!

    yeah i did, i went in thinking it'd be an easy A and left thinking i might not even pass lmao. i'll probably get a B, maybe scrape an A if the boundaries are super low but i'm just going to prepare for the worst.
    i did triple science, computing, english and admaths with ocr and three out of the four subjects i'm doing next year are also with them :o:o

    Did you check the unofficial markscheme?

    Same.... I feel like I'm going to miss out on the A by a couple of marks and there isn't really much point getting it remarked because it's not like it's an actual GCSE or anything and unless I fail maths (as in don't get an A* so I can't move 6th forms) I don't really need an A.

    My nightmares consist of me getting a B in addmaths and tbh, in real life, I've stopped caring about what I get.

    Do you get your grade this week? Or with the rest of your results next week?
