    I prefer not to think about it, lest I jinx a good thing. I get surprisingly superstitious during exams.

    Because I stared at my Latin language paper and almost cried.

    Probably I'd rather not think about it cos a) if I am, worrying isn't going to help anyway and b) I'm such a bad judge of my own work and such an anxious person I usually underestimate and think I'm going to fail whether I do or not. I may well be right this time however.

    Wish I could put results out of my head but I can't dammit!

    Probably physics as I didnt finish either of the papers, and may well have screwed up French. But I'm giving them up so it doesn't matter.

    I think that I have not done too good on a couple of exams, but we need to try and put the past behind us now as there is now way of turning back the clocks and changing our answers on the exam papers (or is there? lol j/k)

    Anywho - just relax everyone and keep focused on the future exams in order to acheive your full potential!

    Mocks always come out worse than the real thing. I got U on my Geography A level mock exams and managed to get full UMS points on the real thing!?!
    Sure u will be fine.

    My mocks weren't great either, but for some reason I'm finding the actual GCSE papers easier. Weirdness. I'm stressing about Chem tomorrow though, science is possibly my worst subject.

    I don't think I've done too well in English, but I guess it could have been worse and I already have 30% at grade A from my coursework, so that should pull me up a bit. I'm just hoping I'm being pessimistic and trying not to think about it until August.

    lol well I don't think I have failed, but I don't think I'm going to do as well as expected I was hoping for AAC but hey ya never know they might feel sorry for me....

    You know you failed an exam when you finish in less than half the time given to sit the exam, that's what happened last year in my electronics (what posessed me to take that?!), I got A (coursework) U and U on the exams, I almost got an E on one lol

    Good Luck to all, all you can do is hope for the best and get on with your life, you'll probz forget all about your exams and only remember on results day when your phone alarm goes off....

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooo don't say that!! I finished one of the biology papers in about half the time, though i think that was because it was actually extremely easy (for me anyway). I was thinking, bet these invigilators think I've finished really early because I can't do any of it, when actually I'm top of my class :mad:

    Good luck everyone, I'm sure you've done better than you think.

    Thanks for the luck. I really needed it. :p: I've done bad in AS computing for sure.

    Woah, it's good you finished the exam in 30 minutes. I don't think the invigilators would mind. Just pretend you are still working through it, so they won't think you finished so early.

    Good luck during results day, I'm sure you will get a good grade. Therefore, loads of uni's will accept you on the medicine course, as you will get a good AS biology grade!

    How did your chemistry exam go?
