    I am extremely anxious and worried about getting my GCSE results in 5 days, it's all I can think about. Im worried that I've done terribly as I pushed myself so hard, I'm aiming for As and A* so I really worked hard and wanted to do well. But I have this awful feeling that I've still failed and will open the envelope and be disappointed. Can someone tell me how to take my mind of off it? Also, will messy handwriting affect my mark? My writing is usually very neat but in a few papers I was scribbling to get everything down

    Examiners see really bad handwriting all the time and can just about read it so hopefully they'll be able to read yours. Also just to calm you down a bit, there's no point worrying because your grades have been fixed and so worrying won't change that at all. So try and calm yourself by reading a book maybe or drawing? Or going out with friends? Just something that can keep you occupied!
