    Strangely enough - I never really get nervous before results day or even on Results day actually! I try to keep a low profile and stay quiet - it is only this way my parents don't know its results day... until they turn the TV on.
    Don't you just hate it when your parents start to hype up the situation and put a whole load of pressure on you? My sister got straight As last year, and they think I'm going to get the same. :rolleyes: Do you want to tell them or shall I?

    My parents have never ever pressurised me about school work, i just get on with it and they leave me alone. Tbh i don't think my mum would care if i failed everything, she'd much rather i got a job i reckon! I have to 'hype up' the situation to my parents, not the other way round!

    My parents are the opposite. I freak out and they just look at me funny, then return to their newspaper. "OH MY GODDD ONE WEEK" "??? oh don't worry i'm sure they'll let you in" "HUH WHA I'M SCARED" "You can always do a HND or modern apprenticeship if it comes to it" "JESUS CHRIST I'M NOT AT THAT STAGE YET"

    don't think my parents realise how close it is either actually- the way they are sometimes, i could have applied to all my unis, gone to my interviews and they would have been blissfully unaware of where i was going/what i was doing...they just don't really question me that much anymore.

    12th: Sit doing nothing
    13th: Sit doing nothing
    14th: Desperately try and find a pressie for a friends bday and then go to her party at some club
    15th: Sit doing nothing
    16th: Sit doing nothing
    17th: Clean the house, then sit doing nothing
    18th: Prepare anything that needs doing for my annual results party
    19th: Oh you know the rest!

    My parents didn't know what unis I had applied to - or whether I had got in or not. Until I told them...in April.

    Its the same now actually - I have not bought anything for uni yet.There is nothing like last minute panicking. :rolleyes:

    haha... Put it this way, atleast they are slightly aware of your intentions. My mum thought I was going to be doing Nursing until I put her straight a few months back! :rolleyes: (I'm doing Law)

    She went quiet for a while and tried to back track - saying that "You would make a good nurse" and that she was sure that I told her that I was doing Nursing..etc. :rolleyes: I told her if she back tracked any faster she would moonwalk right through the wall.

    loll... but seriously, law is just as good a degree as nursing, so really your mum should have been quite happy with that.

    mine took a little convincing that my degreee was highly respected, they just worried cos it wasn't a straight-into- a-career degree. they do support my decision, and like yours siany, they get bored when i start to talk about anything vaguely related to my academic life.

    Heh, my mom is exactly the same. I guess it could be slightly better than having parents wanting us to go to a specific uni/ do a specific course that you dont want to do.
