    Try not to get too worked up about it all. You probably have doubts about Cardiff because you keep thinking you haven't got the grades. Go look at Bournemouth but keep an open mind. There will probably still be spaces in clearing after results day if things don't go to plan - but chances are if you get accepted into Cardiff all your doubts will disappear. Keep smiling

    It's not TSR, it's my mother who is supposed to be HELPING ME KEEP CALM!


    She's just spent the last 15 minutes listing all the reasons why Cardiff is wrong for me and I should ditch it even if by some miracle I achieve the grades. She's convinced that the Bournemouth Advertising course is perfect for me (how she came to this conclusion I do not know and she will not explain).

    All this when I already have my own doubts

    I looked at the c4 one and a few numbers seemed familiar but idk whether i did write them down in the exam or whether they're familiar because they were on the unofficial mark schemes so now i really don't know what to think ahh

    I know! I wish I'd never looked, it has just created more unnecessary stress ugh :/ I wish they released grade boundaries so much earlier though, I reckon I could predict what I'd get on results day if I had the grade boundaries now

    yh but doubt the boundaries have actually been set yet but I think it would be fairer if they released them when they have been set which I'm guessing would be like this time next week or earlier instead of keeping us waiting till the day before results day because yh i agree in the sense i would be able to predict my english lang grade if i knew what the grade boundaries for the AS resit and A2 papers were .... but at least they come out the day before results day thus giving me some time to prepare myself if i think the boundaries have screwed me over

    Most definitely. TSR is gonna be mad as per usual when grade boundaries are released, hopefully they don't decide to make the grade boundaries sky rocket! I'm feeling they might tbh as the majority of my exams were 'easy' dare I say it

    I was already doubting it, purely because I'd never looked at Advertising courses before and this one has a year in industry. She just added to it. At least I don't live with her haha
    You'd be more than able to get into advertising as a job with your Cardiff course though - there's no reason why you can't have it all with either route

    yh I can see the maths ones being high and also I fear psychology for AQA will also go up again given the amount of people now using model essays which the examiner reports have even mentioned which suggests AQA isn't keen for students to get A*'s and A's unless they do genuinely ace the papers

    Never understood the point of memorising model answers (for psychology) - that's not really the point of 2 years of studying.

    Hopefully, I mean I doubt I failed AS maths and AS further maths but I have no clue with these new specs for chemistry and biology.

    Well I memorised over 20 essays word-for-word for psychology, however these were my own answers which I had spent ages creating myself using the textbooks and not ones from the internet, and I felt like personally this was the only way to guarantee actually doing really well in the exams as the exam is only 1.5 hours to write 3 essays so if i went in having just learnt random studies ect for each essay then i doubt i would've been able to write a proper essay but having memorised all the possible essays meant i used up 3 answer booklets for that exam having written like 5-6 pages for each question. I'll see on results day how effective this method was lol

    Wow don't know how you managed that! I did my A levels in 2014 (psychology included) and I didn't do it that way - don't think I would have been able to recall that much without getting all mixed up so well done you for your amazing recall powers! We had a "seen exam" at uni this year where you were given the paper in advance, had time to prepare your answer then reproduce it under exam conditions and it was probably my lowest mark this year lol! I must work better with making up as you go along on the day of the exam

    There are different ways to get into Medicine if it doesn't work out this time round (although I'll keep my fingers crossed for you).

    I think that knowledge is the only thing keeping me sane at the moment! Also thank you for all the help you give in relation to medicine questions
