    I'm worried about results, I was predicted around AAAB, (B in Chemistry, A in Physics, Maths and Economics). Thankfully I don't come under the reforms (WJEC, thank you for once) so I think I'll be fine. I'm predicting myself BBBB or BBBC in either maths or chemistry, depending on how my 'circumstances' (broken leg) save me....

    Good luck! I know it might sound like hopeless advice, but even if worst comes to worst - don't give up. I'm applying (well, hopefully applying) to Cambridge myself. I have a good friend who is in Cambridge now, and he got a first in his first year (which he has just completed). He completely failed his first set of AS Levels and apparently (as I don't know the exact grades he got for GCSE) didn't do well for GCSE, either. So don't give up hope!
    Aw thank you sooo much! it was pretty helpful advice actually haha but I'm applying to medicine #nuffsaid 😂

    Haha, fair play. He's doing Philosophy, and I'm hoping to do History. Good luck with your application, I really hope you get in and get what you want on Thursday, as well!

    I wanted to do medicine for a long time, but I don't think I'd've have the stomach (or scientific talent) for it - I'd rather study dead people.

    What course(s) you gonna apply for? Applying for Physics and UCL "only" require AAA
    Applying for Physics/Astrophysics for my masters, for my undergraduate I was to study Chemistry or a Joint degree with Chemistry...

    Yea but for health reasons, I doubt i achieved that this year, I'm aiming for those grades or A*s next year, which is likely...well I will make it likely...I like getting my way

    Why would you do Chemistry at undergraduate with the intention of doing a Physics masters, considering most MSc Physics/Astrophysics degrees require Physics at undergrad? Genuinely curious.

    I'm worried - I'm predicted to get AAAA, but it's likely I'll get AABC if that, and anything less than AAAA is seen as bad by some of my teachers. I wanted to apply for Oxford, but it's likely to be impossible as certain exams went so badly (my WJEC Law exams were horrible, around 40 people left early in the final exam, people were in tears after the exams etc) and History didn't go well either. Hopefully my teachers will concentrate on helping the A2 students and will ignore me though ~

    Some people are saying that you don't have to declare AS results on UCAS if they're reformed subjects?

    As far as I'm aware you do, I'm applying (or wanting to apply to) Cambridge so I'll probably have to anyway. Just wondering if anyone else knows anything about this?

    Yeah you have to declare all grades regardless of them being reformed

    Thought so! My friend (different college) doesn't seem to believe me so she'll probably get a nasty shock when she has to declare them. Thanks!

    It's OK, I almost forgot to declare a GCSE grade, but fortunately I did it

    Some people haven't even taken exams yet, or internal exams but they don't have to declare their grades. You could simply put 'pending' on the application I think.

    Looks like I'll have to tell Cambridge of my failed GCSE Drama and Law attempts *gulp*

    Well, the first was all coursework and I was in hospital for four years (on and off). The second we didn't even have a teacher for!

    I honestly don't know what to feel right now, I didn't do how I wanted to, I hope I get B's, I take chem, bio, geo and psy! I think staying and thinking positively is important, it's not A2 at least!

    I had to put pending, but when Apply is up and running again after results day, I will add the grades ready.

    Not entirely ready, I need to add info on the work experience I did a few weeks ago but when that's done it will be 100% ready.
