    ...people ask you how you think youve done in exams, and what you think youll get on august 19th?

    Its so annoying, you cant give a proper answer, obviously youre praying that you have met the grades and you think if you say something low(try to be modest) then it might actually happen!

    And if you say something high/Ive met my offer then you think youre tempting fate...

    Then theres always the fact that you dont really have a clue how youve done..

    Also makes me start thinking about results day and I get scareddddddddd

    When I honestly answer based on overall grades in accordance to AS and A2 modules already done, I say I only need this to get AAA. I always get a look of 'shut-up'. They shouldnt ever ask me

    It really scares me I don't want to jinx my results

    I'm always worried that I'll overestimate how well I've done

    Exactly

    And another thing that pisses me off is that last year results were on the 14th, and now I keep thinking 'If only they were on the 14th it would only be 10 days away now!' and stuff :rolleyes:
