    I cannot enjoy the holidays I feel really unwell thinking about this.I don't think my additional language GCSE went that well due to grammatical issues and my french GCSE listening went well as I was so nervous.I know I cannot do anything about it anymore.I worked really hard in history but on the second paper I waffled on too much and my handwriting was quite bad.I am really scared my parents only want A/A* I am scared I put in the hours so I want to reap the rewards the whole wait is so punishable it ruins the holidays they may as well make as go to school during august and july and give us the same amount of holidays after results day.

    I'm sure it'll be okay. I didn't do some of my French and ICT coursework so I'm nervous too.

    My parents say as long as this is your best efforts they don't mind.

    What can they do though? Seriously you can't redo, they can't change anything and they can't hold it against you for too long because in two years you can go university and get as far away from them as possible.

    Tell them to be grateful what they got, my friend tries to hard and still can't get C's.

    And if they do anything bad there is child line and social services for a reason.

    Work hard for your A levels then. Use this as your motivation.
    If you've done your best and don't end up getting the grade you don't want.
    That is life I'm afraid and you have to move on. Worrying for a bit is natural but spending the entire summer worrying? You are wasting your life. You are going to look back and think why did I get so worked up over it.
    Learn from it and smash your A level exams.
    A levels are waaay more important than GCSEs.

    If it makes you feel any better. I thought I would miss the grade I wanted for English literature.
    It ended up being my third best GCSE result.
    I thought all the BS I came up with was too crap to even warrant marks. I waffled on and I didn't think I answered the question properly.
    You may surprise yourself! If you know you are capable of getting a high grade you'll probably get it.

    I understand what you mean I'm worried about my results to. My mum says she doesn't care but you can tell she does, if I got a C in something she would always say oh you can do better than that.

    But the bottom line is, you tried your hardest, if they aren't happy that's there problem, you have done your best to make them proud. Don't wallow in self pity look at your grades when you get them and think if you personally are proud of them then. That is all that matters.

    Good luck x
