    Don't beat yourself up - in the end you're on the course you want and that's what matters for the future.

    That's the way exams go - you can never really tell how you've done until the results appear.

    I got 3 A's and 2 B's!

    N5 English : Predicted Grade - B / Actual Grade - A
    N5 French : Predicted Grade - A / Actual Grade - A
    N5 Music : Predicted Grade - A / Actual Grade - A
    N5 Mathematics : Predicted Grade - C / Actual Grade - B
    N5 Drama : Predicted Grade - A / Actual Grade - B

    I'm really pleased with my results! I'm surprised I managed a B in Maths, considering the state of my exam, but I am really happy it went well! I'm also surprised at an A in English, I didn't think I did hugely well in it, but it turns out I was better than I thought! To think about all of the worrying I've done over the last few weeks, "I'm going to fail!", "I'll probably get a C or D in Maths", "OMG, I'll have to do N5 Maths again :-(", I should have just been more confident in my abilities. I'm glad I studied really hard in Maths, and even though it wasn't an A, I'm delighted with a B! Drama was slightly lower than I'd hoped for, but it doesn't bother me, because I know I did my best in both of the exams (performance and written). I was really happy with French and Music, my two favourite subjects (as you can tell). I was also really lucky to have brilliant teachers, who were instrumental in getting me where I wanted to be; especially my Maths teacher, who spent *literally* hours photocopying Practice Papers and Past Papers for us all to study with, without her I probably would have failed Maths this year!

    Congratulations and Well Done to Everyone! I hope you all got what you wanted!

    Fantastic results - it's so great when you do a bit better than you hoped. Hopefully your confidence will take a boost now.

    Sounds like you always do your best and you're well supported by great teachers. Education is working well for you!

    I love what you say about 'all the worrying'. We're just putting together an article about that and would love to use that quote. Is that OK?

    predicted / actual (highers)
    English: B / A
    Geography: A / C
    Maths: A / B
    Music: A / A
    Physics: B / A

    maths I was expecting because I had an anxiety attack in the second paper and it completely knocked me )
    geography I'm very confused about however, I'll hopefully get a remark because I've no idea what went wrong
    buzzed about physics and English
