    I have no idea what to suggest to make you feel better, just try and relax. Have a bath and read or listen to music and try and sleep. It will be over very soon and i'm sure you'll be fine. xx

    aaw 1 more day and it's over! Twas weird I saw this thread just as it hit me the results really come out in 1-2 days, and started having trouble breathing in... Am totally freaked out because people keep saying how lousy and unreliable Edexcel are, and what I get in history (the subject I do with Edexcel) is virtually my most important mark. Also, my French papers were terrrrible, I screwed up module 3 of English and the only one I'm reasonably confident about is Law which I've been told is regarded as a "doss subject" in any case *draws breath*

    Anyway.

    Best of luck with your results, I hope you do great

    Don't worry, contrary to Edexcel's reputation, they are professionals who will strive to give you the marks you deserve. If they were not reliable, they wouldn't be the most popular examining body for UK state schools. It is natural to speculate at a time like this, and I do understand what you are going through (I am awaiting my GCSE grades). You're 17 so I am guessing you're waiting for your AS results (correct me if I'm wrong)? If you are awaiting AS results, and it turns out they are less than what you were expecting/needing, you could always resit the appropriate modules in your A2 year. Try not to worry, and just enjoy the experience of being an A-Level student! IRL, I'm really not as nerdy as I appear on TSR.

    When you get a lower grade for yous AS retake oral tan you did in the original, despite only speaking about 3 words of French in the original... Then you will understand how unreliable Edexcel are!!!!!!

    Do get that feeling as though you're about to throw up in your stomach whenever you think about it? I do... It's not particularly pleasant, especially when I've been woken up by the pain it's given me when dreaming about results...

    Perhaps it's psychosomatic. Oh well. I just have to get on with life .

    Yes, whenever I think about the 25th I feel unwell, ad nauseam.

    I'm surprised by how much people are stressing out over this. I'm definitely worried myself, but I've seen people on TSR saying they've been throwing up, waking up from nightmares screaming... there is a lot of pressure placed on the youth today. Some cope better than others, but this almost seems like too much for some people. In a way, I don't see how this system can be right.

    I don't feel ill at all. My heart is beating fast though, as I'm nervous and worried. Soon it will be over.

    Same here. The nervousness will end sometime tommorow (finally).

    I haven't felt sick or had nightmares or anything (only waiting for AS results) but I haven't had a decent night's sleep for about a week. I probably slept for a total of about 3 hours last night and I doubt I'll get any sleep at all tonight, so I'm really tired!

    Same here, I just can't sleep, last night I nodded off at about 2am and dreamt about my results sheets turning into bagels and catching fire :s: I'm now off to watch Trisha which will hopefully make me feel better
