All the Y13 students on TSR are excitedly/nervously awaiting A Level Results this Thursday but I've heard nothing from those who have sat AS Levels! If you attend a college/sixth form that still do (aka force you into) AS qualifications come chat...

How is everyone feeling?
Especially considering we know that AS levels 'aren't such a big deal' - are they?

Not me personally (i'm waiting on GCSEs), but a friend of mine is getting AS results and I think it's underrated. You guys put in hard work too.

Good luck to all! :hugs:

Good luck on GCSEs! I remember it being so nervewracking because I didn't know what to expect. Stay with supportive people and I really hope your hard work pays off. <3

I'm bricking it atm. Took maths, further maths,physics, chemistry (the classic) all WJEC. I'm so nervous for my fm and chem results, I think maths and physics was ok. Any comments for/against looking at grade boundaries before going in Thursday morning?

What :congrats: a :congrats: mood.
Personally, I'm a doughnut, so I'll be that twat that's up at 6am on Google. I feel like it'll make me more prepared going in, weirdly. Do whatever you're comfortable with, mate. :yes:

Personally I think I'm gonna skip grade boundaries this year. We don't go in to get our results till 11am (A2 results is at 9am... ) so waking up early to check them will just prolong the waiting. Plus, last year I didn't feel like they gave me a good enough idea of how I'd done to be worth it.
It's up to you in the end!

So worried ngl. I'm not feeling that optimistic, hoping that I'll have at least done ok on comp sci and maths. The further maths and physics aren't feeling too good and the best thing is my friends and parents are expecting me to do better than I likely will.

But I guess I won't know until Thursday. Good luck everyone else btw

Hmm, well I got BBD
I do business, law and sociology. I got the D in Law
I expected a C for Business, a B for sociology and a low grade for Law. I'm not bad at Law actually, far from it. But the day of the exam my boyfriend broke up with me and I couldn't find it in me to finish the entire paper. So i guess that was technically my fault.

But I did hear from a few of my mates they were definitely shocked at the sciences, so I think it's a little more worrying than my B's

It's such an awkward position to be in but I'm still nervous! Do you think it's worth retaking even if unis don't consider AS grades really anymore?

Exactly how I'm feeling... I got 10A*s (7 9s, 2 8s and an A* old spec) at GCSE so if I don't get 4As they'll think I've underperformed. Ridiculous that I'm more scared to see them than to see the results... gulp

I understand the parents and friends thing. Doing well at GCSE is all fun and games until it creates an expectation for AS and A level grades...
Good luck - I hope you get the grades you want!

At my school it's not until after September when we go back, I'm not sure if all schools are the same though. I'm sure you could use those grades and ask a teacher or use them to make a rough estimate.

wordd. Yea I mean these results don't matter too much but if it comes to that I think it's worth it.
