I know I shouldn't speculate or whatnot, but seeing everyone's responses in the exam forums and on Twitter, I can't help but think I've done appallingly on my exams.
I need ABB but I highly doubt I'll achieve that.
Would it be too early to start applying for apprenticeships as a 'just in case' type of plan?

Best advise, turn the social media off.
The exams are done now and I'm sure you've done great. Come results day, I'm sure you'll be pleased.
If you don't meet the grade requirements, then it's not the end of the world. There's always clearing.
Relax and don't worry about it.

ty for this. Yeah I've just decided like whatever happens, happens. I can always take a gap year and reapply.

Hi, my name is Abby and I am a student ambassador at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln. After exams your mind starts to overthink every little thing you wrote (its hard not to, I was the same). The best thing you can do is not to check any threads on Twitter and to have faith in yourself. If you are really unsure of your grades, it may be worth looking into apprenticeships or foundation degrees to put your mind at rest should you not get into your firm choice. It is also worth considering clearing - most universities (excluding Oxbridge, Durham etc) will offer clearing for most courses.

Hope this helps and good luck with everything!
