well i can breathe otherwise i'd be dead. BUT i'm sooooo ****ting myself over thurs 14 aug. I literally feel like going to the moon coz i'm so jumpy and agitated.

It'll make me feel a whole lot better if anybody else has these really abnormal physical reactions.

I just wish that i knew my results (even if i really screwed up) to get away from the pain and agony

thats just a lil bit extreme i would say. i for one always think logically and never let my emotions get the top of me. I would prefer not thinking about the results. although i know that my future lies in that printed piece of paper

hiya, I always feel that way about big results days. To be honest i didn't give one about the jan results but i'm so so scared about thursday. Don't worry about being worried it'll just give you something else to panick about. Just remember most people are ****ting themselves too. As embarrassing as this sounds I made spread sheets to work out all the possible combinations of results that i could get. My chem one was over 50 pages long. This was until my dad realised and thought i was just going to make mysef ill and he made me delete them.

Good luck for results and I hope you've done briliantly

Don't worry people. I read in the Sunday Times that A-Levels were really good this year with a pass rate of 99%. English and history were especially good and they also plan on making maths easier because people are too scared to do it. Personally I think maths is okay. There's no fun in doing loads of easy subjects. I like to challenge myself a bit.....but not too much.

Man, I hope that people are not going to start saying that rubbish about A-levels being easier. Cos that AIN'T true! And I hate results day. Still not sure how I'm going to get round to opening the envelope, though the waiting for the results is really bugging me!

hmm, perhaps, because P3 then was a lot bigger and might have included P4 and maybe more.

Generally though, if you look in an old text book there is so much more you would have had to learn if you were doing that subject back then. Physics in particular.

I second what byb3 says in that there is much more content in the previous (old) A-levels than the current new ones of Curriculum 2000.

The level of difficulty is another matter.

Anyway, in regard to the original subject of the thread, I too am quite anxious about the results and that it has caused me to experience some sort of recurring feeling of heaviness in my chest as a result of my nervousness. Results day better come quick so that I can get it over and done with.

well to everyone that did chemistry a level. I found my sisters mock papers from 1991 and i was actually appaled at how easy they seemed in comparison to aqa unit 5. there was a compulsery question which had a 700 word article about some new scientific discovery. All they had todo was condense this into 170 words that would be relevant to an a level student. This was worth half the marks on the paper. She then had to choose 1 quesion out of 8 which focused on 1 vague topic area and answer indepth questions on that 1 topic. So you basically had to have a reasonably deep knowledge but you could get away without having to revise lots of random facts. Also if you had gaps in your knowledge you could still get way with it. She also had a multiple choice exam. Next time she tries to remind me how "easy" my chemistry a level was i'll throw that in her face.

I did History, if I pass that, I'll be well pleased

Thanks alivewoman for the article :nod:

Don't get too worked up about it, it isn't the end of the world! There's always re-sits available! Unless you already have offers, but even then theres still always re-sits, just take a buffer year to do them and then apply again! I'm taking it all in my stride I don't expect to do as well as i'd hoped so what I do get will be a bonus, then there's always..... RE-SITS! Take it easy chill

The pass rate is E or above, so that's not saying much really. Even A Level MAths, the hardest subject I found in college, could easily be passed. Getting a C or B though, I don't know.

You must be a girl because only girls get emotional like that. I'd recommend a healthy dose of male hormones... It didn't do Anne Widicome any harm.
