    No worries, just multply the days out into seconds and it will seem like a lot of time before results.

    I dont see why you are anxious about results. I cant wait for mine - and not because I'm going to do well, I'm going to do pants - but instead of worrying I'm just getting on with my life and wanting to find out what grades I actually have got, whether they are good or bad. Its not as it your life is doomed if you get a D instead of a C at english for example.

    Sorry for being so meh - I can still relate to how you feel, but I just dont agree with it, thats all

    Well it is if you want to go to uni and dont want to take any retakes. I think a better example is if you get a D in electronics rather than a C

    not necessarily. If you get something like ABB and have the academic and personal skills for a course, GCSE's arnt going to matter that much. Its not as if they wont let you onto the course just because you failed that 1 exam. If you satisfy the entry requiremtns and the uni wants you to study there, a GCSE grade wont make the slightest differnce. People get too worked up about these things - like the sats, everyone thought they were so imprtant, but look how we feel about them now!

    It will make a difference because its metriculation. You need metriculation with Cs at least. That is basic requirements.

    Primarily, if you achieved DD for English/English Lit at GCSE, chances are you won't be able to go to college (this is the case in 90% of scenarios). If you can't go to college and study A-Levels, you'll have a hard time getting ABB (although there are alternatives, but they're more farfetched). Also, if you achieved DD for English/English Lit, chances are you don't have the academic ability to achieve ABB anyway (there are arguments against this, but for the majority it is true). Now, bearing in mind what I've just said, you won't be able to satisfy any University's requirements.

    Believe me, Universities can be very harsh.

    All of these exams hold some importance. SATS are helpful for determining which set you are entered for as soon as you enter year 10. GCSEs hold far more significance than SATS though. Most Universities will focus heavily on GCSEs (not because they need to, but because they can). Universities only have AS results, A2 predictions and GCSE results to determine a student's academic ability; they will use every peice of information which they can get their hands on, in order to gauge how academically able a student is. Remember, most universities recieve around 10,000 + applications per annum - and they only have a limited amount of places, so, naturally, there are going to be rejections. Universities are looking for students who will make the best of their facilities and flourish.

    P.S. Sorry if I sound like I am biting your head off and trying to start off a full-blown argument, I'm not. I just don't like seeing people "**** off" GCSEs and say "they aren't important" because they are, in many ways.

    Nottingham required 6 As at GCSE for my course. GCSEs matter. Some courses need you to have grade B or above in maths and English also. If you want to apply to a competitive course (Law, English, Medicine) with such a high standard of student applying universities will use your GCSE grades to distinquish between you. I know it's not worth worrying now, but they really do matter. xx

    Yep. Exactly. It really frustrates me when people say "GCSEs don't matter". It's like saying, "everyone who has worked their ass off at GCSE is a fool, because no-one acknowledges them".
