    You could always re-do A levels couldn't you. At least then you would realise how much work they actually consist of. Therefore, you will be more prepared, committed and determined next time round.

    But that's the thing. I was prepared, committed and determined. I worked so hard this year, which was acknowledged by my History + Law teacher today. I just want my results

    The thing is, i'm expected AAAAB but i want AAABB (realistically) but i feel one of the geo and english papers were horrible so i reckon i've gone from an A in geo down to a B and from a B in english to a C.
    Another piece of advice: if that is the case, try not to beat yourself up over it either, because whether you get AAAAB or AABBC, they're still both excellent *results

    Hmm...maybe A-levels aren't just for you then. Some people aren't suited for them and subconsciously don't adapt well to the syllabi. Have you thought of doing a diploma instead or the IB? - both equally very valuable qualifications in their own right.

    Yes they are amazing results but AABBC would not be good enough for my parents and the universities i want to go to. Who knows, maybe i have done better than what i think (i had this problem with GCSE's and underachieved in certain subjects but excelled in some which i weren't expecting to excel in).

    No i haven't actually looked into that one. But in all honesty I wouldn't want to be still in college at the age of 19

    To be honest, i'm not nervous. I know i've already got an A in Maths, and my others will vary from AAB - BCC (for AAB offer). But at the end of the day, if i miss my offer, i get another stab at top unis which i didn't go for or got rejected by and i get to go to uni a little less poor. I'd still have friends round here, so i'm not overly fussed if i screwed up.

    OH DEAR. Forget what your parents think about your grades. That's not a problem. It really matters about as much as me typing this. Honestly.

    AABBC is amazing to get from 5 A levels and i'm sure your parents would be proud. Stop worrying, it's done. Go out and enjoy your summer. For your sake.

    Why not? The thing what surprised me when i first started college was the large percentage of people who were doing A-levels aged 18+ (one person doing AS's is even 28!) So perhaps in the long run, it will be highly beneficial for you and trust me, you wouldn't be the only one in the whole UK who are doing A-levels post 18. Are you an AS or A2 student?

    I'm excited about it. Even if I've done terrible at least I'll be able to decide what I'm doing next and move on. I hate being in this exams/results limbo.

    Because sitting at home being miserable doesn't make you screw up any less.
