    In my test I have excluded all the optimists! I focused specifically on the pessimists and the questionnaire helped me determine them
    Ah..I see...😌

    why dont you try learn about something more cultural or useful instead of all the meaningless syllabus facts, you've already go the best grades possible? It will make you a more interesting person, right now you are a mindless product of the system.

    8/06/2016 - Evening update

    Haven't done much today, kinda chilling because it's only maths tomorrow thought I'd better get ahead for biology on Friday though.

    -"best guess" maths paper - 88% (so disappointing but it was an absolutely appalling paper - so badly put together and no A/A* topics only easier ones which is where I lose all my marks due to silly mistakes )
    -biology b4 notes finished

    I'll have more time tomorrow so should be able to get more done. I'm in a foul mood currently and I don't know why. Hm.
    Well done today! I'm also chilling for maths, actually, is the only subject I'm really confident in.

    Out of these pessimists, those who thought did well got actually worse results!
    Lol. I wouldn't consider myself to be a pessimist but I would consider myself to be a person that gets stressed a lot. Having depression and anxiety doesn't help much.

    Quite a few people who turned out to be pessimists believed they were rather neutral. The questions went through a computer and analysed them, giving me the results. I then waited for test results and used graphs etc - it was super fun to do!

    Today I mainly revised maths and science. I'm so confident for maths that I'm scared that I might mess up.

    - Maths past paper 94/100 A*
    - Maths predicted past paper - 90/100 A*
    - Briefly looked at some topics for maths
    - B4 revision

    Fair enough, but you have to get the good grades to be able to have the posistion to present your 'useful' information, being that influential people would only really listen to someone of greatness,

    So guys. I don't really know what to say about the maths exam. I'm feeling a bit awkward. Like it went well but at the same time didn't. I answered every question and took my time. I gave it my absolute best and I guess that's what counts. How did you guys find it and where do you think the grade boundary for an A will be this year ? Thanks.

    Don't worry! I'm sure you will get that A! In my opinion I found the paper really good but the questions were really wordy and usually, I get confused in wordy questions.

    I think it will be, considering the first paper about 127 out of 200 as some did struggle and there were many wordy questions.

    Really,that's a bit of a relief. Thanks for the reassurance. I usually do as well but I found that it went well. I just don't know because Maths is my WEAKEST subject and I desperately want an A. God knows I worked hard.

    You worked hard so it will pay of! Funny thing is maths is my strongest subject. I'm like that with English as I never know if I did well.

    Thanks. I really hope it does. Wow. It's funny how all of my friends are strong in maths and I'm the only one that's strong in English out of the majority of the year ( Even though I'm in top set maths ) Lol.
