Folks,Im really stressed out right now...Im just about to finish my IALs(Edexcel),I took biology,maths and chemistry and my predicted grades are A*AA respectively.But the papers this year are utterly impossible...Sod it In my biology A2 I even left several questions blank(With a lum sum of 15 raw marks,combined) and I feel real bad after the exams and thought that Im gunna fail...I dunt know if I am going to get CCC or sth like that
Im applying for medicine so the grades are really important...

Could some kind souls please give me some advice on stress relief?

You’ll be fine. If you think you’re a smart student and you found it hard, the pretty much everyone else found it hard, therefore lower grande boundaries.
Just enjoy your summer for now!

It's pretty redundant to worry to be honest, i was in a similar situation last year and the worst came true but there are still plenty of options even if it does. I'm resitting this year and eventhough im unsure with some of the papers im much more relaxed. The comment above pretty much nails it but if you know you are missing medicine grades then you know what the outcome is likely to be. If you are deadset on doing undegraduate medicine you can always resit your A-levels but of course that comes with the risk of narrowly missing out again which probably wont be too appealing to a medical school, if not there are many other routes into medicine which shouldnt be a problem if you have the intelligence and work ethic.

Well im not that sure if I got things wrong and where the grade boundaries are,
Im going to study medicine in Sweden,Denmark or France and the grades attained for medicine is lower.
I do wish the grade boundaries this year is lower than last year's...

Yeah my predictions were high but I don't think I'll get any of my needed grades (maybe except computer science). Hopefully the grade boundaries are low though. A lot of people are in the same boat as you.

I most likely failed physics and I won't be resitting, in fact I'll do another A-Level privately because it's just too hard for me.

Yes lol, my friend got 3E's and is resitting the 3 sciences and i got CDE last year when i was predicted A*AB from my mocks lol, its tricky and there are some downsides but a resit absolutely takes away the stress and gives you much more time to prepare, sometimes the extra year is worth doing if it prevents you doing something you dont want to do.
