    hi,

    right now i am worried like hell about my exam results.
    i need DDD-DDE to go into a2, so if i dont get those results i cannot go into the next year.

    to add to my misery, they'll only let you to do AS agian if you:
    1. good at the subject and your teacher expected minimum of D.
    2. Good attendance - my attendance is about 90%?

    i do not want to do another year whilst my freinds leave me in the dust, did revise but not as much as i could have.
    i found my exams difficult, looking at from what i got in january i will be lucky to get DDD.
    my only options if i do fail is to:
    1. do whole year agian
    2. find elsewhere and do whole a-levels in 1 year.
    i am very unhappy about what my results can be.
    when i done my exams i was enthusasitic i would get like A/B,B/C,B/C
    but now when i think about it and how difficult some modules were i think i just screwed them up.

    How do you feel your exams went? Usually people do a lot better than they think they've done. Just wait and see

    I think we all feel the same that we have done a lot worst than we have. It seems the further away u get from exams the more it plays on ur mind. For my resits in jan i came out thinking id be lucky to get n E n one of my resits i got n B so serouisly most people dont do as bad as they think. Its prob to do with if i think i did that bad if i do better u feel that much better. Think most people are just as worried from what my friends are saying. Just try to forget until results day n i know its easier said than done.

Then before i thought i failed n exam at gcse n i got 98% i actually left the room crying u can never tell how uve done its annoying that they make us wait sooo long!

    Yeah, it's the waiting that's the worst. Too much time to dwell on how you've done. I think I know when I've done alright, but I think I'm also just too pessimistic and sometimes don't realise my own ability.

    I'm predicting myself truthfully, AABC. Maybe I'll be disappointed, maybe happily surprised...

    I needed 3 Cs to get into A2 last year, and I felt the same way about my exams as you do. I thought I would get Ds and Es, but I did slightly better in the end, and just about got let back in with 2 Cs and 2 Ds.

    I'm sure you'll be fine!

    I think you'll be fine. I'm sure you'll get your Ds. I was in the exact same position last year and I ended up doing a lot better that I thought I would. Whereas my friend didn't do as well as he expected and got DEE but he was allowed back. I'm sure you'll be fine. You can resit modules in January and ask not to do A2 modules in Jan to conc on your AS resits.

    ! I'm sure you will, all depends on grade boundaries and examiner. What exam board are you doing for History out of interest?

    Firstly, it’s important to be positive. You may not have done as well as you wanted to or could have done, but it’s not the end of the world. You can always re-sit various modules and even the whole A-Level if necessary.

    Also, while you may not want to redo a whole year, when it comes to it, it may be for the best. Really, in ten years you won’t even care about the fact you redid a year – There are many people in Britain who redo a year or two, and it isn’t the end of the world. (Many actually regret not redoing a year when they had the chance.)

    So just be positive, don’t dwell on the fact you may have failed your exams (or didn’t quite get the grades necessary), and if necessary, simply redo the year.
