At GCSE we only needed 5 C's for college, at AS we could re-sit, this time we HAVE to get the grades for our offer or it's all been a waste of time.
Normally on results day i'm kind of excited aswell as anxious because I know I will have done ok and would be happy with C's, but this year I will actually be dreading it!!
Imagining holding the envelope sends shivers down my spine!
What do you all think?

I'm still ****ting it about my GCSE results. I know for medicine you basically need a handful of A*s and basically no B's. I didn't work that hard and now I know my dreams of medicine will be crushed and it's all thanks to my laziness and I'm kicking myself so hard now.

At GCSE, I didn't need anything. I got an A in English and an A in Maths when I took them early and the college I was going to was more than accommodating even if you didn't get Cs. [Then I moved colleges, after results day, to one where you need As in the subjects you want to do - if I'd have been going there in the first place, I guess GCSE results day would have been more stressful lol!]

At AS, I freaked a little on the day (but not before) as you get chucked out if you don't get decent grades.

For A2, I've been freaking about the results since I sat my first exam. I keep having dreams about it and am desperate to know how I did yet frightened too. You know when you try to convince yourself you would be happy with lower grades - well, I'm trying but it isn't working. I've worked (as most people have) so hard these past few years, to fail now would be dreadful.

Anyway, good luck everyone. I guess there is nothing we can do so we must try to forget about it.

I normally do that, but I need ABB, so I won't be happier with lower grades lol!
I usually try and convince myself I have done worse than I actually think I have, so when I do crap I am prepared for it. This year it won't make any difference whether i'm prepared for it or not - I still won't be in Uni!

Good luck aswell! Do you think you have made your offer? What do you need?

I'm just pretending that it's not going to happen. Denial is so wonderful.

If it's any consolation that is entirely untrue

Wait till you get to uni!!!
On my degree (mpharm), you get one chance to resit each exam and if you fail you're back to square one and can only repeat 2 years cos you've got to complete it in 6... pressure's on lol

Yeah I'm pretty much going with the same thing.

There's a little bit of trying to reassure myself that I don't need to get the grades they say either. Keeping reading the stuff about being let in with lower grades.Trying to persuade myself that I could get in with even lower by moving the courses down to a BSc from an MMath.

It doesn't work though. I'm dreading it all.

I'm really worried about GCSE results day because of Maths. I've struggled with Maths ever since yr8 & haven't exactly had great teachers. I keep having nightmares I'll get a D, and seeing as the 6th form I've got a place at doesn't offer re-takes, I'd have to take a year out, re-take it at College & then do yr12. The 6 A*-C bit is no problem though, I already have an A & a B [not cashed in] guarenteed.

Yeah, that's the current coping method i'm using. "It will be fine, I will just call them up on results day and beg for a place and they will let me in "

My school doesn't even give you the results in an envelope, they're just loose - people can leaf through them looking for their own; I'll get there, and people will be telling me what I got before I even get a chance to see them.

It's torturous! I'd better get bloody good results... or I'll die of shame!
