    Hi, I just finished my A2 Levels and currently waiting for my official Cambridge A-Levels result. Now, I don't mind if I got an E or a D, because I've actually know where am I going to go and what am I going to do. As long as I don't failed, which means getting an actual "U", then everything will go as planned.
    I'm very very very scared of getting a "U" in A-Levels, I did every questions in all the papers, well, except Maths, but anyway I did every single questions in all of the papers that I've sat, even with the ones that I don't understand. But, nonetheless, I feel very very not confident in my answers. Some of my teachers and friends told me that people who have gotten a "U" are normally people who don't write anything or barely done anything on the paper. The ever worst for average A-Levels students are normally a Grade E..
    So, again, what are the chances of getting a U in A-Levels Cambridge?? Is it true what my teachers and friends said?

    The 'chances' depend on your ability and how much work you put in, it's a complicated factor. Are these mocks? I've had a friend who got Es and Us that got an A at the end so I wouldn't worry too much as long as you really start to work from now on. Also, from what you've said it doesn't seem like you'll get a U, you said you did all the past papers and answered all the questions. Good luck

    Yeah.. But still, like my economics essay, I was writing my answers, and I THOUGHT I was wrong, so I practically halfway gave up while writing it. So my sentences and the way I write has actually become weird and stupid, only to find out after the exam my friends said I did correctly. I just finished my exam, so I've just gone through the exam. It's just that, getting a "U" seems very real to me. It scares the hell out of me. Thanks though
