    I just wondered if anyone else was feeling like their going to fail their A-levels because their so pre-occupied with thinking about offers from uni and where were gonna stay when were their and if we'll make friends and stuff like that. It's hard to keep my mind on my really boring A-levels when i know what stuff i could be up to next year with all that freedom and no nagging parents around all the time, and i will be so so gutted if i do fail my A-levels coz as far as i'm concerned my life will be over coz there will be nothing to look forward to. Are there any people in the same boat as me? and are there any ways i can keep my mind on the present rather than thinking about what the future has to offer?

    My motivation to do work for my A levels is, at the moment, zilch. I can't stop thinking about uni either...

    I can't stop thinking about which uni I will be going to etc.
    I need either ABB or BBC. Yet I don't do any work because I'm in silly daydreams, or panics. One minute I can't wait to go the next I'm having a Early Mid Life crisis, realising that I'm going to really be an adult in a few months.
    In fact right now I'm meant to be doing coursework. 11 bits to be completed and I am still procrastinating.

    It actually made me motivated even more to do my A-levels, as I know if I don't do well, I won't go to the uni I wanted to.

    Absolutely. I only need ABB (after getting AAAAC for AS) and as such have the vague feeling that I might be getting too complacent for my own good. If I don't get ABB, then I am totally screwed.

    I'm a bit worried, to be frank.

    I'm worrying so much about meeting my offer that I'll probably miss it through lack of concentration! Aaaargh!

    My advice would be to enjoy your A-levels and time at home whilst you can. Yes uni is fun but there are also lots of downsides like having to do your cooking / laundry / cleaning / shopping etc etc etc, plus a huge workload. Also make the most of your friends at home before you all get split up.

    Eep I'm worrying about getting the grades, but its mainly the coursework that suffers (I hate coursework and it takes ages). I feel I can't do much knowing that results are out on thursday.

    sigh. I do most of that stuff now anyway. Maybe with the exception of cleaning..but then I clean whatever I use. Mums excuse is that it reassures her that I will be ok at uni...

    Yeh enjoy your time at A-level as much as you can. I bloody loved sixth form - the last year of freedom and no work worries. To be brutally frank they ARE desperate to give ou marks at A-level now so there is no need to worry as long as you do a little bit of work. I am not insinuating that anyone is stupid. I just think a-levels are nowhere near as hard as people make out. Now a degree - thats another matter....

    yes. It doesn't help that Alevels are so DULL. I'm so bored all the time that I don't want to work, and think about university as a havan of not being bored.
