    Assuming your Cam offer is anything like mine, you've probably got at least AAB even after you factor in duff exams and days. Dont get yourself too down by dwelling on worst case scenarios.
    I'm trying not to - I'm hoping for AAC (maths was a disaster however there are issues which school have written to Cambridge and Nottingham about in that subject) so I'm hoping for that to be accepted by Nottingham. The only way I have any hope of getting into Cambridge is if they accept A*A*B bearing in mind the issues with maths, and that's only if the grade boundaries fall really low

    Thank you very much for allowing me to be on your rollercoaster ride!

    It's been real honour for me to know you and share a lot of time through the journey.
    But I can and should tell you now that I've (and I'm sure Doonesbury, too) always had more confidence in you than you do in yourself. Nobody has been so brave, so hard-working, so loving and warm and funny as you have been in spite of all the difficulties you might have had to come through. I have nothing but respect for you and your mother who brought up an amazing girl like you.
    So whatever happens on Thursday, I have 120% confident you'll be successful in whatever you set your heart on, wherever. You just have to start believing in yourself more, just as rest of us do in you.



    Good luck on Thursday, and ever after!
    Wow, I don't know what to say! Thanks so much Vincrows *appropriate hugs*. This is hands down the kindest and most meaningful thing anyone has ever said to me! Wow, I wish correctly quantify my appreciation for that. Thank you!

    (My smilies aren't working so sadly I cannot add any in but I will later...)

    And to run with vincrows's eloquence a bit more, we've all been on your rollercoaster ride together, every swoop of the way. I think we've given you an encouraging push every now and again when the going has got a bit steep, and now we are rolling headlong towards the finish, with the automatic camera thingy ready to photograph our smiling faces as *you* compete this stage of your journey.

    There are many stages ahead too - this is just the beginning of the next version of you. A you that must look back with pride at what you have achieved and embrace with more confidence whatever comes next. Didn't someone once say "it's kind of fun to do the impossible"...

    I humbly wish you the very very best of luck for Thursday.

    Yes. Not sure about "first post", but they should arrive on results day for UK applicants.

    Doonesbury/PQ can I ask a question ? For one of my exams I was allowed to take in a script (drama). The invigilator was slightly concerned that he hadn't been briefed on annotation amounts and raised the issue of possible over annotation (in front of everyone in the exam room to my horror) to the Examinations Manager. She consulted my tutor for that subject and they agreed that it was ok and that AQA need not to be informed. Now I've read that someone got an X for turning up late. Would they have to inform me if I was getting an X ? I did the best I could given the trauma of the beginning of the exam but now I'm panicking that AQA will find out and X me. The college assured my mother that it was fine and nothing would be affected. Am I worrying unnecessarily ? 😔
