Anyone else care more about grades than getting into their course? watch

    • Thread Starter

    So, I am 100% confident I will get into my firm; need AAB, was predicted A*A*Aa (did another AS), got AAA in AS.

    Instead, I am now stressed that I won't get what I am predicted. Went through a "rough patch" around exams (poor me) and now I am expecting to get AAA. I went through the whole year focused and excited to get the A*s, now I am confident that I won't get them and this has really disheartened me due to a lot of pressure, both internal and external, being placed on me.

    Basically I am just venting, but is anyone else on the same boat?

    No use thinking about that now
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
