    Abysmally. I actually think I've got 2 Us this week. Although one was general studies so that can get in the bin.

    History was not good but I think that the other ones went ok. I just want to get this last one out of the way now. Curse me for doing 4 A-Levels!

    A lot worse than all of the other past papers but ok. It took me about 15 minutes to realise how to form the snowball DE, but apart from that I didn't think it was too bad.

    A lot of people at school have been saying how they found it atrocious, so the grade boundaries should be low anyway. The last 3 questions certainly threw a lot of people.

    You formed the snowball DE eqn properly?! I'm totally jealous.
    Damn Cambridge Mathmo...

    I'd been getting 100% on virtually every past paper, but I have a nasty feeling that C4 may have dashed my hopes of getting an A* in Maths (and getting into Cambridge... :bawling:).

    Yay! Your post made me feel better!
    *hug*

    No Edexcel.
    All my exams are edexcel and 6 of my 8 exams are within 4 days of each other.

    I keep telling myself: "Only 5 more days, only 5 more days"
    But it feels like being in hell right now D:

    Hey!

    I've been surviving exams- just about- but I'm seriously worried that I might miss my offer. Got one last exam tomorrow so I'm going to focus on completely merking it (another piece of slang for you. ).

    I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL EXAMS ARE OVER! I'm so jealous of the fact that you're going to Costa Rica while I'll be stuck in London!

    Yeah they did, I didn't even notice :teehee: but the same distance was described as 0.05cm and then labelled at 0.05m, so some people might have picked the wrong one. Think I did, but when my answer was 100 times too big I fiddled it Oh dearrrrrrrrrr. Getting an A* is so hard, biology went OK today though !!

    Good luck everyone see you next year fingers crossed!!

    I'm *hopefully* going to Catz, yes.

    Haven't done any of that yet because the site says between April and August, so I'm just waiting until after Results Day.
