    Has anyone else found that since they've got their results and now know that theyre going to Uni, the whole thing has just been a total let down?

    I got sooooo worked up/anxious/excited before exam results, and now I just keep wondering what the hell I was worried about?

    I worried about my AS results, when I got them I was just worrying about getting uni offers. Even though they're good results it hasn't really felt like a weight off my shoulders.

    Aye, there's a lot of pressure on you all the way through till your final A2 results day. But it's a cliff edge of stress really. Afterwards it all seems...empty...not that I miss it

    Never fear you'll have 3 or 4 years of exam results you can get worked up about all over again

    Yeah that's what I'm worried about too. In a way, getting offers can actually be more difficult than getting good grades

    Gluten for punishment? Thats ok though cos one of those years you won't have exams

    Its wierd finishing uni for good though. Very wierd. 18 years of structured education comes to an abrupt end when you read your results on the notice board and start smileling like an insane cat.

    That's true, I look forward to the throwing up of those hats, needs to be done !

    It's incredible how much structured education we need to go through.

    Perhaps all those who are emotionally scarred could go to some counselling sessions between now and...October!

    You ungrateful *******s, I have no sympathy whatsoever. No sooner do you step off the treadmill, than you start to complain and fret!

    You've done the business! Be happy.
