    Basically since I finished exams I have been freaking out about results, I just know I failed. This is because in my AS I got BDDD and retook and got BCDD. Although I retook what AS subjects I could I am absolutely certain I am going to have to do foundation. I have accepted that if things go so bad I would. I just feel like such a failure because I know how hard I worked.
    If anyone could explain clearing to me and how you become eligible that would be great.

    Try and occupy yourself and enjoy your summer. You think you've done bad, but there's so many case scenario's where students think they've done bad, however it turns out to be the complete opposite.

    Whenever I think I've done badly in exams I actually come out as having done okay weirdly haha. But just try and find something to take your mind off of it, what's done is done and you can't change it now you could always do an extra year at your college/sixth form?

    You can't do anything about your actual results. What you should do is make plans on what you are going to do if you get worse or better than expected.

    No you're not the only one :facepalm2: If I don't get my A in maths, I haven't got into uni and I'll never see the boy I love ever again :cry2:

    Its natural to get worried at this stage - most people do.

    The best thing to do is to find something BIG to do that takes your mind off it - get fit and train for a 5k charity race, read all an authors novels, paint your bedroom green etc.
