    The thing about high boundaries is there's no reason to panic unless you saw an unofficial mark scheme which you trusted, and you remembered everything perfectly, and you know how much certain methods are worth, and with all that you are below where you want to be. If the boundaries are high, it's because most people did well, and there's no reason to believe you didn't perform to the standard you would usually perform at on past papers
    Yeah - that's completely true and a logical way of thinking. Unfortunately my logic swan dives out of the window just before results.

    A slight problem is that grade boundaries aren't quite as effective with languages, and French has climbed slightly higher this year. Due to the pressure of native speakers taking it, or the fact that language essay marking can be ridiculously subjective. Hence why my language teachers have warned my class of the incredibly slim likelihood of getting an A*; in this sense, languages could be considered the hardest subject to get top grades in.

    All that said, if I flop it, I flop it, and it's my own fault when other people do fine. But come high or low, grade boundaries for languages are no consolation.

    Is anyone else listening to the music that helped them revise during the exam period? I find it so nostalgic and bittersweet. 😥
