I don't know what happened yesterday but I just feel so down. I was aiming to achieve AAB but received BBB instead. I'd worked so hard and had been revising for months on end. I'd been getting As and A*s in all my mocks. I'm so disappointed in myself. I feel like I did all that work for nothing.

I failed to get into my firm uni but luckily still got a place at my insurance. Don't know how I feel about this though because I really had my heart set at my firm.

Same here, I even failed some units that I had been achieving A*s and As in consistently throughout the year. I put my back into this only to achieve terrible grades. Do you feel something has really gone wrong this year because so many people are saying the same thing. I can usually tell when I have achieved less than a B in an exam as soon as I am done, but to literally FAIL some units, I cannot CANNOT understand this, I have put so many hours and work into this. Constantly achieveing A*s in all maths modules to come out with a B?
ARGH.

Don't worry, I also had loads of A's in my maths A-level and ended up getting a C overall. I'm planning on getting a photocopy of the paper to see what actually happened because the examiner you had might have been real s***. If it was all a mistake, maybe you can get it remarked and get a higher grade. If you're absolutely confident you should've gotten an A, get them remarked!

I feel the same, I have been working at straight A's in my main subjects this year and I got B's in almost everything. I put so much effort into my exams it upsets me to know that it wasnt good enough. But the worst part was that I felt so happy with my exams, like they had went really well. Starting to wonder if I'm never going to get the grades I need for Uni 😔

The exact same thing happened to me. I only thought one exam went dire but believed the rest went pretty well. I'm just upset because I know i worked really really hard. People say that if you work hard you will get what you wish, but it doesn't seem that way to me.

It feels like a mistake but I looked at the grade boundaries and my B are in the mid-range. I just have no idea what happened. I wish I knew what went wrong, I wish this was all a mistake.

I feel the same. I thought I would be the only one. I just feel like I honestly don't deserve these grades because I worked so so hard.
