    Hang on, let me get this straight.

    You dossed the year, you've had family problems, you haven't worked as hard as you should have, yet you expect to get amazingly high UMS scores?

    You shouldn't say that you are dissapointed with your results; you should be dissapointed with your work ethic, more than anything else. With that work ethic, you're lucky to get 4 A's in my opinion, you should count yourself lucky.

    Your problem isn't the results, I'll re-iterate it.
    Nah, one more day of revision for each module would have done the trick. But silly me decided to do about 2 or 3 hours each for the Chemistry module, whoops. I like my work ethic - I will work slightly harder this year (I will do at least 75% of all homework!), but that'll only be because Further Maths is scaring me and Oxford looms around the corner. And yes, I like Merton

    *shrugs* Family problems still exist, though less. And I've now caught some great disease. I'll always have excuses. It's really about when I'll face up to them and stop scapegoating them.

    Well accept the fact that you didn't work hard enough for the UMS scores you would ohh so dearly love, despite only graes being put on your UCAS form anyway, and work harder next year, rather than pretending you're dissapointed when infact, when you first opended your results, you were happy and relieved you got 4 A's.

    You've failed to mention that you went from happy to down after talking to the likes of Tek and H&E as well, so you implied that you expected high UMS scores beforehand.

    1.) You don't deserve "high" UMS scores. (the ones you stated on your website).
    2.) You were happy with your results until you started talking to 2 public schoolers; one who's a moron, and the other who does brilliant and you shouldn't compare yourself with.
    I actually have an entry somewhere where I wish fervently for 270+ in everything. I don't imply anything, I don't lie. I see no point in it.

    I haven't done very well, I know I could do better. I know I have the potential to get high UMS marks, which is what I referred to. You simply misinterpret it, as what I think I deserve. Nyeh.

    That's really all there is to the story, isn't it? :rolleyes:
