Okay, okay, so I know the IB results don't come out for another four days or so, and the A level results another millenium or something, but how is everyone more or less feeling about their (fingers crossed, wood knocked) entrance into Bristol?

Excitement? Anticipation? Nerves? What are you most excited or worried about?

Unconditional, so none of this waiting for results lark for me!!

I'm EXCITED, although I'm not sure about how I'm going to do any work...

I don't know if I can really call myself a 'prospective undergraduate' (I'm in my 3rd year)... But I am nerve-wrecked. An exchange student scared about language issues. Awesomeness.

Yes IB results in about 2 days. Scares the living daylight out of me. What if I don't make it? There are so many What-Ifs!

Pretty confident, I've got some good results behind me in case I drop down a bit.

I'm terrified, not to mention insanely jealous of my friends going to uni in the US/Canada whose acceptances are practically unconditional. (Only condition is to get your high school diploma and really, it's a challenge to *not* get it!)

Gotta love the IB...

I do IB, but I know what you mean. After those exams, my grades could go either way...when do you find out your marks for A Levels?

Thanks, they're out tonight at my 8 pm (midday in the UK) and it's like waiting to open your stockings on Christmas Eve when you're five years old. Except despite how nice I've been this year, Santa still isn't going to give me a 45....!

I'd doing an access course, so already know that I've met my requirements but I need to pick up my certificate next week and then send it off to Bristol uni. Only then will I be 100% confident of my place.
