    Just got my results and I got the 5As I was hoping for but my twin got 4As and a B after having got 5As in his prelims and having recieved no Bs throughout the year. I got 4As and a B in my prelims but managed to pull everything together for the exams. At this moment it really feels like if I could trade my A with him I would. Dont know what to do
    Firstly congratulations on your grades - you absolutely aced it and should feel massively proud of yourself! What you've said is so touching. You sound like the loveliest sibling ever

    Your twin has also done incredibly well - people would trade an arm and a leg for grades like that.... long term that B won't matter but I appreciate that right now it doesn't feel like at all.

    How is your twin doing?

    You still both did really well :yes:
    You should be proud of your results, and he should too- they're still really great! You'll just be feeling guilty because you're still really hyped on adrenaline and because of the excitement of results so just let everything settle down
    There's nothing you can do about it anyway
    We are both proud and I do feel guilty for being so upset for him when I know people would be so so chuffed with those results. He's gone out for a drive anyway.. hopefully he can get it remarked! Just wish we'd looked into the appeal process before today

    Thanks for the kind words, do I just phone up the school and say to them I want a re-mark of this and that then drop off the cash? I can't bare to see my Computing teacher, he was expecting an A from me.
    I don't know the ins and outs of remarks, but I presume so She-Ra can give you any extra information, I've quoted her in

    Heya, - really well done to you and your twin. Please don't worry about it, he may've just had a bad day, it happens. As it is you've done amazingly and you should both be really proud!

    CONGRATULATIONS to both of you!!!
    Thank you so much. I know, it just feels like I was hoping for 10 As instead of the 5 for myself.. how greedy. Thank you anyway!!

    It's not - you just really care for your twin and what them (boy/girl?) to do the best they can. That makes sense - As gingerbread101 said, he's quoted in She-Ra and she can give you some help/advice hopefully.

    Keep your head high, as your twin will be looking for some support and they'll go to you.

    Good luck with the future,
    Charlie

    That's unfortunate - what time does he usually come? And what grades are you hoping for?

    I'm sure you'll do really well and good luck for when the time comes!
    Thank you I would like five a's... But a mixture of a's and b's or just passes would make me happy! He usually comes around 9 or 10ish fingers crossed!

    Thank you so much, I am so pleased for myself but obviously so concerned with him. Yea, I think we know that. Think I expected that if anyone were to get a B it would be me; hadnt really prepared myself for this situation. He's ok, its just crushing his pride. He's gone out for a walk with my dog so Im sure he'll be fine... she has a way with words haha.

    You will need to wait for 9 for UCAS to confirm/deny your place at your firm and your insurance. If they are both denied, you can go into clearing - only available for some Scottish unis today, and the rest on the 14th. For any scottish unis you might get an offer from today, you wont be able to input into UCAS until 2.30pm.

    He's a guy and I'm a girl. It was English he got the B in so I guess there's still hope. I really hope he feels that way as I have been with him every step of the way and there's not many people that can say that.
    Thank you so so much for this support though, don't think there's many people that would appreciate how he can be so disappointed with his B and how disappointed I can be on his behalf. Thank you.

    Come to think of it, I refuse to believe that I performed so poorly in the Advanced Higher Computing paper. My score for the coursework was 78/80 which left me needing 12 marks for a D (according to last years grade boundaries). I for one do not believe that I did not get at least 12 marks in the main paper to at least get me a D as the final.
