    Okayyyy
    I do Maths, Chemistry, Geography and EPQ, and am predicted A*AA*A respectively. (I really should have written those in a different order so it would say A*A*AA instead, but there you go)
    I have applied to Oxford, Bristol, Edinburgh, UCL and Manchester for Geography, but I've received no offers yet.
    Super super nervous ahhhh
