    What board did you sit the linear GCSE in Maths with and when did you sit it?because there is a lot of difference between scraping an A* and a secure A* in Maths.
    Edexcel November 2011. I scraped an A* (it was 160 for that exam)

    I think you are being harsh on yourself 167 marks is 7 marks higher than 160-its not a high A* but it certainly isn't a scrape.I just worked out that you would have got 275/300 UMS had the exam been marked out of 300 UMS-I got 270 UMS and 271/300 UMS for 2 of my A*s at GCSE(English Lang and French) and 218/240 UMS(English Lit).

    I thought I had it bad. 7:20am - 5:45pm.
    Am I the only one that leaves home about 8:15 in the morning? The advantages of being able to walk... Get home about 17:45 usually, occasionally even 16:45 if I have nothing after school (about once every two weeks...)

    Thank you I don't really dwell much in my GCSEs since there's not much I can do now. Well done on your grades though, you did well! You just need to forger it all, and go all out in your AS'

    Am I the only one who's terrified of uni? I'll have to be switched on all the time, there won't be anywhere to hide or relax. And I won't have TV, there'll be an unfamiliar bed, and I know I'll miss home so much.
    I feel the exact same if it makes you feel any better! I haven't had to make new friends for 7 years, god knows how I'll cope next year!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one! When I went to summer school everyone seemed to get on easily, while I was panicking all week. It'll be something we get used to, but I just hope it'kl be something we like.

    I guess it's good to remember that everyone's in the same boat. I was really nervous for a conference I went on as well but after about an hour I'd made a group of friends and later in the evening there was a group of 15-20 of us and I had such a good time. I keep telling myself how excited I am to leave and go to uni, but deep down I am quite worried about leaving home

    I genuinely don't think I was in the wrong.

    The system needs to be changed, I can't refute points if I can't see what I've allegedly done wrong?:lol:

    Yeah, that's true. Aw, that sounds great! I think that, though I really liked the friends I made at summer school, I probably would have drifted away from them later on. Having to spend a lot of time with people (and live with them!) will hopefully help friendships to form more strongly, especially when we know it's permanent rather than just for a day/week/etc.

    I feel exactly the same. I think the best thing to have in mind though is that we'll be virtually picking where we go. There's no point in applying to somewhere you don't want to go, so wherever you end up it'll probably be somewhere you'll really want to live. That's what i try to calm myself with, anyway
