    You are worth a lot more than the grades you got on a piece of paper so please dont let those grades decide your fate. Also there are other options for example Btecs so its not completely the end of the world if you dont get the grades. You did the best that you could and if you have not i guess you have learnt your lesson that its though out there so be prepared...Remember life does not go in a straight line so dont stress of over exam results...as it is not all about going to Cambridge or oxford-you dont have to go there to make something good out of your life so do what suits you.

    Always Remember "Winners are to busy to be sad, to positive to be doubtful, to optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated."

    Edit: It is not all about a piece of paper with your name on it.

    I understand your point my friend and thank you for your post. You have completely right about the fact that exams are only exams and they cant define us. But I was thinking that I do have time (one year until I do my applications) but I dont know if it worth it so much pressure

    In my opinion i dont think its worth it since the majority of your uni requirements are AAA meaning if you have those grades then you are going to get in...

    I know but I am afraid of LSE, that's why I am asking for your opinions. I know we arent talking about LSE's Economics or Accounting and Finance which things get super difficult
