    Exactly...plus there are a few people who would ask me for my result, but when I ask them, they just talk around it and I don't get to know. So I'm just planning not to tell many people. I'd rather say my results on tsr rather than in real life tbh
    Exactly, people on TSR are so much nicer.

    I don't think they'll be very high nor extremely low, though I do think will be slightly higher than last years. But don't worry, A levels are much more rewarding and valuable than GCSE's, so if GCSE's didn't go well, you can always do better in A levels. Don't get your hopes up though

    only slightly higher? Last years was awful with low grade boundaries. Surely they'll be a lot higher.

    yeah I've noticed the edexcel maths grade boundary predictions are quite varied. I've seen some saying 158 for A* and others saying 169 :eek:

    Last year was a lot harder than any other year and it showed in the grade boundaries, 155 for A*. This year it was a lot easier and it's likely to go up to about 164 for A*.

    I'm waiting for my results for AS Level on Thursday and was just intrigued about how people feel about their GCSEs so I came on this thread. It's kinda surreal given I was in the exact same position last year. GCSEs are almost always better than you expect because your teacher will always be a harsher marker when it comes to mocks and assessments compared to your actual examiner. A levels do give you that clean slate to start from, but be warned, they're so much harder.

    You're absolutely right there. As soon as you get to college/sixth form, your GCSEs will feel pointless. Or at least that was mine and my friends' experience. No matter how bad it may seem now or on results day, so long as you get on to your college courses you want to do, your GCSEs won't matter one bit come that first lesson at college in September, because it's all about A level then, and that's what really matters, so as long as you put the work it next year, it'll be fine

    Strangely I'm feeling quite excited for results day... these words I'd never thought I'd put together. But I think that I just want to know what I got now, especially since a few letters on a page don't define me as a person.

    From what I've heard, some people (mostly girls) spoil Results Day for literally everyone by crying hysterically. Why? I do not know.
