    Although I didn't receive results today, and I'm only receiving my GCSEs next week, did you guys do better or worse than you expected? Did you think exams went really badly but in the end you did alright?

    Congratulations guys, and I hope you got what you wanted!

    Exactly as I expected. I needed AAB. Right after my last exam I said I was 100% sure I got BBB. I ended up getting BBB. It was annoying have to deal with people constantly saying "haha you never know! You could surprise yourself!" for nearly 3 months. Like ffs, I'm the one who sat the exams. I think I'd be the best judge of how they went.

    But I still got into my firm ( and rejected by my insurance somehow)

    Congratulations guys! So glad you did well

    Do you have any tips for GCSE results day? I'm just really worried because my friends really think I got straight As and although this is probably what I'm capable of, I just don't think exams went overly well

    Ignore them, you know how well those exams went and don't be too disheartened if you don't get the "TSR standard" because I only got 1A* 8A's and 2B's yet I've somehow managed ABBB this year (thinking of getting Law remarked- it was 2UMS off an A)

    Just be realistic at the moment and hope for the best, it's not the end of the world if you don't get 10A*'s

    So after getting 4 As and 6 Bs in my GCSEs I was predicted 3 Bs. In my mocks I got ABC. Found out I got BCE, the E being in Maths, which means I have to retake all of Maths... other than that I'm not too fussed

    Congratulations anyhow! It doesn't matter what your insurance does if your firm offer is secured
