    I know this sounds absolutely dreadful when theres lots of people still agonizing over where they'll be this september, but I feel a little underwhelmed really. I was initially really worried over if I'd get into my firm or not, and I got the grades I suspected I'll get in the end, getting into my firm. Maybe it will sink in nearer freshers week, but today doesn't feel in anyway special, in exactly the same way that GCSE results day didn't.

    Anyone else feeling similar?

    Yes, I can relate a little bit as I knew full well I was going to get my firm, so today hasn't really come any sort of surprise.

    I feel the same as well and so do some of my friends! I think it was because I felt fairly confident about my exams plus the fact that I am just a naturally laid back person. But I'm sure as the time to start uni comes closer, the nerves/excitement will definitely kick in!

    yes, i feel the same. I expected to do well and i did so nothing is really new, just that my place at uni is confirmed. My mums happier about my grades than what i am!

    I felt a bit like this when I got my A level results (4 years ago- I'm so old). I don't mean to worry you, but I think it was part of a symptom of the fact I just wasn't that passionate about the course I'd chosen. I ended up dropping out of that course, and reapplying to do something completely different that I am very passionate about, but my teachers talked me out of first time around. Hopefully you'll start feeling more excited closer to the time, but if not, don't worry. You'll eventually find the thing that makes you really passionate and excited, and once you do, you can persue it.

    I just received my AS results (4 As) and I don't feel anything either. If anything it is a sense of relief because I do not need to wonder what I got anymore. It was the same when I received my GCSE results. Maybe because they're just letters on a piece of paper. Who knows?

    Yeah, I feel pretty awful actually despite getting in. I was over the moon on GCSE results day though, I couldn't stop smiling! Today I haven't smiled once :/

    I just don't understand. Its not because I knew I'd do well: I reckoned there was a significant chance of me not getting into my firm choice. I just, don't really feel thrilled enough to jump up and down like those bun smugglers on tv, or even crack out a smile. Today, just feels far too normal.

    Yeah, I agree. I was elated this morning when I found out I got into my firm despite missing the offer. I was so happy. When I got home, I just felt this huge wave of boredom lol. It was like everything was back to normal

    I'm the same. I was so worried I would miss the grades (felt physically sick all day yesterday) but I got them and just feel...normal now. I guess it's because it's so far away - I have 6 weeks at home left so I'll be waiting a long time! Though I am going shopping for uni stuff tomorrow so I guess that'll help it sink in more.

    I agree strongly with many of you on this thread.

    I have obsessed over Durham, my firm choice for ages. I was fairly sure I missed my offer, and finally as today came, I was very surprised to find that I got in. I did indeed miss my offer, AAA instead of A*AA.

    You'd think I'd be jumping up and down for joy and be really happy, but for some reason I'm not massively bothered. Maybe it's because I don't feel like I deserve to get in, and that I missed the A* by 3 UMS, not that it matters. I think I will feel more positive about it tomorrow.

    After thinking about universities for so long, it feels so weird to be a confirmed student. The process is finally over. I feel a tad nervous about it all now... it has finally become reality.

    I think my mindset towards it will improve though

    Yeah, it's been more of a relief, rather than a wave of excitement.

    this morning I was ecstatic, I was crying and screaming.

    But when I got home I was just tired, so I went to bed for 3 hours - I think it's the relief of knowing it's finally over more than anything tbh.

    Standard. I vividly remember having this feeling straight after finishing my last A2 exam. I felt underwhelmed, but rather had an overwhelming desire to revise for my 'next exam' which obviously didn't exist. And worried for eons about that particular exam too. Ended up getting full marks.

    On results day I was thrilled though. I was touch and go for a couple of things and to know I had secured a place at the uni I really wanted to go to was amazing.
