    ME! I'm so so stressed over Psychology... I went to my tutor (who's also my Psychology teacher) in tears the other day... I'm predicted AAB (got ABC at AS but was 7UMS total off AAB) and need ABB for my dream University.

    Never gonna happen Might as well just give up.

    Far far easier said than done. Psych is horrific and I know that's going to be the grade that stops me from getting into Cardiff.

    I got BCCD at AS
    Predicted BBC at A2
    And all the unis for my course require BBB-AAB minimum entry requirements
    :cry2: i dont think i will get any offers
    And i tried asking my teachers if they can change my predicted grades from Bs to As as i have been doing well in recent tests like getting high Bs in maths exam (only 3 marks off an A yet my teacher wouldnt change it)
    And i got 88% in my most recent chem exam
    And the annoying thing is that i know people who got worst grades than me in AS and they have been predicted higher than me like how on earth is that fair.

    I am applying to pharmacy and pharmacology

    Sorry for the mini rant

    you can get there if you just push yourself a little bit more, maybe change up your revision techniques or if you haven't see your teacher/tutor about how you can improve, don't just give up, if its your dream uni then push yourself to get there. don't stop writing or learning until your brain and hand explodes XD.

    I have to get A*AA. So far the extent of my revision has been (finally) sorting through my piles and piles of notes that I should have kept in order from the start, and sticking up one solitary poster on my bedroom wall about glycolysis.

    I guess you could say it's going well.

    if your teacher is giving people with lower grades higher prediction, you should get your parents involved, this could affect you getting into your wanted uni, especially with pharamcy being a popular course, more than likely it won't be in clearing

    Taking a little out of Physics time to reply.
    Funnily enough, the two year course hasn't been spread out to all subjects so physics is the only one I do at the end of two years (unlike computing and maths).
    I was just in parents eve yesterday and my Physics teacher was telling me I needed to do more revision outside of class.
    Good luck you you as well.

    I can just about keep up with the work for this year but all these monstrous courseworks (40 pages for bio and like 70 for chem) literally have me in tears AND I need to go over this years content AND revise for AS retakes.

    Those 3As look like a myth

    Looks like those days of doing **** all has caught up to me

    Yep, I'm completely ****ting it this year.
    I need to get A*AA and I have an interview next week with Queen Mary for Law...which I'm not ready for...and I have to sit the LNAT (law national admissions test) in a few weeks time. I haven't even revised properly for the LNAT, idk how to.
    I'm honestly so terrified, I was trying my hardest not to get attached to UCL, but after going to their summer school, I really want to study Law at UCL. If I **** up my LNAT, I can kiss goodbye to that dream.
    ....and here I am on TSR instead of revising lololol😊😊😊

    You should be fine. I applied to Pharmacology last week with similar grades to you and I already have 4 offers. The course isn't that competitive and I've heard of people in my school applying with predicted grades lower than the entry requirement and the uni will make a lower offer for them. Also, you may want to apply for a foundation year as one of your choices just incase.
