Results day is looming and TSR tradition means we have to have a countdown thread for everyone to get to know each other, talk about their hopes/fears and generally relax (as well as sharing advice and information before the big day).

We'll update this post with pointers to advice and support soon but for now introduce yourselves

Introduce yourself
1. AS or A level? AS
2. What subjects? English Lit, History and Maths
3. How did your exams go?
Maths was awful and one of the papers for English Lit

For Yr 13:
4. What university is your firm/insurance?
5. Which subject?
6. What grades are required?

For everyone:
7. What grades are you predicted? AS - A B B
8. How are you feeling about results day? So scared for maths.
9. Anything else to add? I want to study English at Cambridge University.

FAQs
RESULTS
Spoiler:
Show


When can I collect my results from school/college?
That depends on the arrangements your school/college make - if you don't know the time then ring them up on Wednesday the 16th (there should be someone in that day) and ask.
How do I collect my results online?
Again, this depends on your exam boards and/or your school/college. If you don't know then ask them directly.
When do unis get our results?
UCAS get the results from the exam boards approximately a week before results day. They spend a day or two matching them to your applications and then send them on to universities either overnight Friday or Saturday. Universities then spend Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday MANUALLY comparing every offer to the results to decide whether applicants have met their offers or not (and if not whether they can be accepted with lower grades).

feeling a bit scared is normal, would you feel more comfortable doing research beforehand about what's in clearing so you're prepared if the worst happens?

Yeah I have! I looked into Exeter (they're asking for BBB for law with business which is perfect because I want to specialise in corporate/commercial law.) I looked into the leniency of Sheffield, they let people in through clearing with BBB.

I also looked into Law at queens Belfast, they're also asking for BBB. I don't know about Nottingham's grades yet but it has been said that they're in clearing for Law and I have done the LNAT so it could help with them.

I'm kind of worried though because I'm not in the country on results day and I'll be 6 hours behind

Every year we see applicants surprised by their results. Don't assume either way is safest. Hope for the best and plan for the worst.

Heyoo
1. AS or A level?
AS
2. What subjects?
Math, Phys, Chem and Eco
3. How did your exams go?
Meh


For everyone:
7. What grades are you predicted?
Math - B, Chem - C, Phys - B, Eco - A

8. How are you feeling about results day?
I honestly havent even thought about it this year, is that weird? I just havent been worried at all. I would still like to do well though as for me, math and chem are modular since i do international exams for them (I live in dubai). But Eco is linear and edexcel.

9. Anything else to add?

I was going to drop physics 2 weeks before doing the AS, Then i just couldnt because i felt as if i was wasting a years worth of learning, so i tried my best in it. Also my chem teachers r dumb for predicting me a C. Either way, i would like to get AAAB, or AABB, with a B in math and physics as those exams went worst. If i dont get an A in eco and chem ill be dissapointed Worst case i can imagine BBBC and that wouldnt be good for my predicted grades next year.
