    Dreaming: 10A*s + A Further Maths
    Wanting after doing the exams: 8A*s, 2As + B FM
    Expected: 7A*s, 3As + B FM

    I know I'm going to be disappointed to matter what and it's killing me

    Opening results somewhere quiet in school. YouTube: Yeah right, imagine :rolleyes:
    Is that AQA further maths? I managed to self-teach myself the syllabus in under 3 months. I also thought that was a really nice paper this year I'll be horrified if I don't get A* or A*^

    it's not hard (to get an A at least since you usually need around 65-70%) but this year's paper was really difficult so loads of people who were predicted As think they're gonna get a lot lower
    i'm just hoping for low grade boundaries lol
    Right, I'm sure it was difficult. But, let's see how much 'lower' the grade boundaries become. Usually, they don't go lower by a lot. This happens a lot at A-level lool

    Nope, sorry. It's OCR FSMQ (6993). I used to always insist on saying FSMQ instead of Further Maths but I guess I gave in for that post. The paper was trickier than other years'.

    I knew it all perfectly at one point but just didn't begin to revise it in time. I only did about 3-4 days of revision so I only have myself to blame. It's one thing getting a low grade if you don't get it but another if you knew it all and just didn't revise.

    Anyway, I'll stop being depressing. It's great that you found it nice, hope you get what you're aiming for

    What you think you've got:

    Edexcel Maths: A*
    Edexcel English Language: A*
    Edexcel English Literature: A
    Edexcel Religious Studies: A

    AQA Geography: A/A*
    AQA German: A*
    AQA PE: C
    AQA Further Maths: A*

    OCR 21st Century Biology: A*
    OCR 21st Century Chemistry: A*/A
    OCR 21st Century Physics: A*

    Best Case: 8A*s, 2As and a C
    Worst Case: 6A*s, 4As and a C
    Realistic: 7A*s, 3As and a C

    Predicted grades:

    11A*s. I can safely say my teachers must have been high

    What you've actually got:

    Guess I'll just have to wait and see...

    How are you feeling about results day?

    Fairly confident as I know I've done pretty well, but obviously I'm still quite nervous. The waiting was hard at first but now I don't think think about them that much.

    How are you going to open your results?

    I'm going to be opening mine at school, just reading them to myself at first but then telling people, although it'll be pretty rubbish as nearly all of my friends are opening theirs at home

    What A levels are you doing? (if not what is your alternative)

    I'll be doing Maths, Further Maths and Physics. I might find a way of teaching myself German as well but that's not really a priority.

    Are you going to record your GCSE results on YouTube? (If so I can't wait to see it!)

    I'd like to, because i really like the videos of people opening the theirs. However I feel like they're better if you record your reaction to opening them, which I won't be able to do. Also the fact I don't have a YouTube channel might be a problem... I might film them regardless, even if i don't then put it on YouTube.

    How are you feeling about results day?
    Optimistic as I know I've tried my best but always have moments where I worry about a subject due to stupid mistakes or coursework.

    How are you going to open your results?

    Hopefully at home but if teachers want me to open at school, I will.

    What A levels are you doing? (if not what is your alternative)
    Biology Chemistry Maths and Physics

    definitely won't be as low as 125, i expect normal boundaries this year
    i didn't do the paper but i did see the first one and my friends told me they were both fairly standard edexcel papers so 130-135 is my guess

    Really? Granted, I probably didn't revise as much as I should have done, but I didn't think it was the easiest...
