Good luck to everyone. Being nervous is just part of the process. It's an unorthodox method this year but i hope everyone gets the grades they deserve.

How is your teacher going to give you a grade in your home language??
Well we were asked to come in for one random exam during June (with social distancing, n they called it a “mock”😒) there was like 10 of us from yr13 . But it just worries me/was rough bc we had nothing /no topic to prepare for and basically Did it blind. Other than that there were teachers who knew the languages and seen some of our work before so it may be coupled with that too. But honestly this whole stress is such a mess and Idek if I’ll get any grade for it At this point :///😅😅😅

Oh wow mate that seems tough! You must be from Pakistan btw! Good luck!!
Ah ha yea thank you good luck too , proper nervous. yeah , Pakistani but born in the UK :-) . I Mainly had to pick up home Lang n the EPQ in yr13 tho bc I was too stressed out/overwhelmed/unable to understand a level politics n was suggested by teachers to drop it then instead pick the language and EPQ up for qualifications /applying for uni. At the time this seemed good and kind of still does now but the only massive disadvantage is that there isn’t a load of evidence to generate these two grades. Thus, I’m trying to not worry too much about sociology n philosophy but still doing good in 2 a levels won’t be enough for me so yes its just all one big confusing mess. I’m trying to just go with the flow, being like it is what it is but internally quivering ughhhh🙂🙂🙂🙂

I'm honestly really nervous and scared because I attend quite a rundown state school with really bad historical data, but we have a superb cohort this year; perhaps the best the school has seen since it converted to an Academy. But I feel that the system will really screw us over :/


Subjects: Politics, Maths and Chemistry
What I think I'll get: ABB/ABC (I'm predicted A*AA so that's best case scenario which is very unlikely)
What I need: AAA
Firmed Uni: Oxford

heyy so I basically set this up cause I am feeling SUPER nervous about A level results day and I thought that we as TSR-ians need to be there for each other and support each other.

We are probably the only students in history who are getting A level grades without sitting actual exams and with standardisation and everything... things are very uncertain and it is so confusing and frustrating.

So just DM people on this thread to support them or to ask for support during these difficult days.

So...

What A levels did you "sit"?
What are you expecting?
What do you need?
And which Uni have you firmed?

And most importantly.. why are you nervous and what are you nervous about?

GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY!!
So I have "sat" Graphic design, History, and Sociology A-level exams and I think I'm expected at least all B's? I'm not too sure but I need 3 B's for university haha. I did get one unconditional offer but made it my second choice due to travel issues but my firm choice is Northumbria University in Newcastle!

I am nervous, mainly because I have a severe anxiety disorder, but mostly because I really need these grades to get in. I've gone through DSA (disabled students allowance) and gotten a laptop and extra support so if I don't go to uni do I just give the laptop back or not because I paid £200 towards it? What do I do if I can't get into any local uni's because my mental health will not let me move away and I have 5 birds as pets so accommodation is out of the question? It's all just a mess lol.

I wish you the best of luck too! <3

In regards to the DSA equipment, was your equipment provider called InVate? After I got my entitlement letter, I emailed invate about the equipment and I basically got a reply which was like “before we proceed, we must make you aware that if you don’t take your place at your chosen university, you will be responsible to cover the cost of all the equipment” but I don’t know your situation. While I only need 3 Cs to get into my firm, I hope the exam boards don’t screw me over otherwise I’m looking at paying nearly £2.000 back to DSA.

Also, Northumbria is actually my insurance mainly because they offered a place on their foundation year course if I get 80 UCAS Points. I really want my firm though because from what I’ve been told, Northumbria’s film and tv production course isn’t accredited like my firm is meaning it’ll be harder for me to get a job in the media afterwards.

I'm assuming this was question was for me?

It's because my school performs quite badly at A-Levels. For example, last year in a maths cohort of around 30 people, one person achieved A*, 2As and with chemistry (cohort of around 25ish people i think), no A*s and only 3As. It's this combined with not being too optimistic about my ranking because thia year's cohort at my school are just really, really, really good compared to the previous years with much more capable people.
