    Long story - essentailly involved some bullying and a DT vice - You can probably guess the rest.... But those horrible days are over....
    I'm sorry to hear that. I can't believe someone would be so cruel to do that to another person. I'm really glad you're OK now. No one deserves to be treated in that way and, thank goodness, your school expelled the bully.

    I don't think I'll think much about the exam results apart from the odd minute every now and then when it dawns on me what they mean.

    I intend on sleeping & watching movies & reading & leaving my house.

    To be honest, its such a long way away that I'll probably forget about them! I don't think I'll be as nervous about the results as I was the exams, until probably the day before recieve them. At the end of the day - there's no point panicing anyway, what's done is done, and at that point, it'll be far too late to do anything about it!

    And I have to do revision in the Summer too - on 6th form induction day we get given a Maths booklet thats called "Bridging the gap between GCSE and AS level" and I have to complete that over the Summer, plus - I also think there's summer work for my Business Studies course

    After doing your AS level exams, you have to go back to school/college for the last 4 weeks of summer to start you A level courses. That's pretty harsh I think.

    Lol - I've already bought the AS/A2 revision guides. Some of our teachers gave them to us and taught us with them (since some teachers were "bored" of GCSE!). Some are quite intersting, but that's probably only because I'm a geek :p:!

    How do you know what revision guides to buy if you don't know what's on the syllabus? [I'm not trying to raise an arguement here, just curious].

    But I know the specs/boards I'm doing for A-level... Plus, the A-level guides can be quite general in the fact that they cover many boards .

    I've got the Letts AS revision guides that cover all syllabuses. Its got a list at the front with what you need to learn for each exam board. Do you know if there are any revision guides for theatre studies or music technology???? I'm guessing theatre studies is differnt because you study differnt plays but any music tec books? I may have a good search on amazon!
