    Couldn't be more worried about my AS results. Know I haven't performed as well as I'm capable of under the exam pressure

    Post your thoughts/hopes/predictions for results day. Only 64 days to go.....
    Hoping to achieve decent results but I don't have high expectations particularly in my AS AQA Biology unit 2 exam.

    I feel like I'm going to be the most underrated student in England.

    This is in terms of what I know and what shows up on the damned piece of paper. (Excluding things such as: time, deciphering the language of OCR and just whether OCR feel like being merciful)

    Expecting a B in Psychology, hoping for such or higher.
    Expecting a C in Maths, but hoping I scraped a B or I most definitely wont have got into my firm Uni choice
    Not sure about Biology yet; if Friday's paper goes well then I'll expect a B, which is what I'm hoping for.

    I really hope grade boundaries are lower than usual this year due to the lack of January exams. It makes sense and would seem fair but I doubt they'd be nice enough to do that for us

    I think I'll be lucky to get CCC, so you can tell I'm dreading that day. I have a panic attack in the exam that was meant to boost my English grade, but I feel I've got a D or E in it.

    I have a feeling the 13th will be a sleepless night for many! I'm dreading it - really not sure how any of my exams went, could have completely flunked or done alright!

    It makes me angry that what's on that paper that day defines you - IT SHOULDN'T. It's not a reflection of your intelligence, it's not a true representation of real-life working situations, and it's often totally at the mercy of what questions come up.

    Exactly ! It ridiculous. So.many factors could determine your results, not truly reflecting your capabilities or how you would perform in the work place. Haha rant over!

    I already know I'm going to be REALLY disappointed. Was hoping for A*AA but I'll probably end up with ABC, if I'm lucky.

    I need A*AA for Durham, which is my firm choice. I've had a really good feeling about all of my exams so far, but there's always that nagging thought in the back of my mind that I haven't done as well as I think... And my Mum is piling on the pressure too - 'if you don't get into Durham then I'll be so disappointed, so you had better get in!' Awww maaaaaaan

    Wow, your mum seems like a bit of a ****, no offence hahaha.
    Good luck anyway!
    Don't worry - she's always annoyed if I don't get 90+% so I've come to terms with it! Thank you, fingers crossed!
