    Antrim is where it's at :L
    I am exactly the same, job and everything. It's the not knowing! And the panic - what if, what if? I know I deserve good grades, and I don't want undeserving people to do better!! :L
    After GCSEs... A Levels.. :woo:
    ditto with the a level business
    my jobs boring but hey, it's where the money's at
    And the funding of my clubbing dresses and killer heels :L

    Lmao! Yeah I'd like a pass in maths...it's my worst subject but I just hope I get my C! Science...I'd like a double B I'd be happy with that

    WOW, Well done in your english coursework that's fab! I got an A* in my creative coursework and A's in Poetry and my Macbeth coursework for english. I love english :suith:

    I got full marks in my geography coursework, I was so pleased, I love geography! I'd would love an A* but I think that's aiming too high so an A would make me really happy!

    This time in 9 days we'll know our results...it's great! I can't wait for it to be over, I can't wait to start 6th year !
    8 days!!!! *freaks out*
    Its so weird that our results days is just more or less a week away
    I'm going to the Hilton tomorrow to chill out for 2 days I guess I've kinda comfort ate this summer cos I feel all ugh, so I will be hitting up the gym

    Aww lovely! My friends are going to the Hilton on Sunday actually!
    I need to join a gym like really badly :woo: I've comfort ate a lot this summer aswell

    Hmm, probably not to be honest like, I got an acoustic guitar as an early present for results...other than that my family and I will probably go out for a meal on results night

    Ahhh, it's so close! I feel sort of...nervous/excited but I mainly feel curious more than anything.

    So where are you going for 6th year? Are you staying on in your school or are you moving schools?

    I hope to go to my schools 6th form - I go to an all girls school and I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else really! It's quite academic though so I'll feel stupid if I don't get good results :/ a lot of girls in my year are really high achievers so hopefully I'll get the grades to go back!
    Ditto with me, my parents and I had a deal that after my last exam they'd buy me an iPhone, so they did I want a car now though, I'm waiting on my provisional to come!
    I need a gym membership so bad!!

    ccea are putting their grade boundaries up on their website on the 24th! If you want to, you can look at them and kinda try to gage what you think you've got it's not that big a deal, bit it's also helpful to see if you were a high B/low A etc or if it's worth it to get a remark if you're only one mark off a certain grade

    Don't worry about it - there's so much exam lingo I get a bit confused too
    Grade boundaries are the levels set by CCEA which mark out which grade you get for example;

    If an Exam is marked out of 360 the Grade Boundaries could possibly be like this
    A* = 335
    A = 325
    B = 300

    etc

    That's just randomly off the top of my head, but grade boundaries are just showing the amount of marks needed to obtain a certain grade!

    They can help you by showing you where you're at academically and like I said, when you get your results and say you have an exam which is one mark off a B grade, by using the Grade Boundaries you will have seen that by getting a remark you could easily get an A!
    As the Grade Boundaries are being released the day before the results, some of us are going to look at them to try and judge what we got I may print them off for reference with my results the next day!

    I hope this helps
