    nope, my sleeping pattern is well and truly messed up, didn't get to bed til 3 this morning at woke up at 7 :p:
    As is mine. I slept 6am-10am. Figure that one out lol.

    Does anybody know what we have to do on the day. I know that I am expected to go the college to collect my results. What happens then? Do I contact my university, sign into UCAS or what? Also what happens in the event of grades not being achieved.

    Thankfully it wasn't the tube it was just a normal train service. When I got off was three stops before the end of the line, so sometime between there it either got stolen or taken to lost property, because they couldn't find it at the end of the line :sad:

    I was meant to ring up today to find out, but no-ones answering the phone! I'll have to report it to the police soon *sigh*
    I hope you get them back soon - good luck

    I think if you get the required grades, you don't need to contact anyone. You can find out if you've got in from about 6 in the morning (I think) on track but you still need to go college to get the actual results

    That's okay then, since I've been going to bed at 4am recently, it'll be like staying up longer! :awesome:

    I don't know whether to get my results on Edexcel results plus first or wait for track.

    If go on results plus and see I haven't met my offer, I'll be going absolutely mad for an hour waiting to find out what the universities decision is. However I suppose I'll at least be prepared for some sort of rejection.

    If I just check track first, seeing the 'rejection' without any warning will be awful. But then if I do get in, the suprise is a bit ruined on how I did with my results.

    I think I'm actually going to check track first :eek: The whole reason I'm doing the exams is to get into university, I don't really care what I got as long as I'm in, so it's the most important thing to me. Will be so hard trying to resist looking at my results though when I know they're right there!

    Arghhhh what does everyone suggest? :eek3:

    14 days

    Am I the only person on this forum that is having problems sleeping?
    Ahhhhhh!:banghead: :eek3: :yikes: :shock: 14 days don't mention it again, I don't like being reminded! :nope:

    Your not alone! My sleeping routine is absolutely ridiculous. I go to sleep at about 4am and then wake up at 9am, but I have naps in the evening. I anticipate my sleep routine will change drastically on the week of results day I'll probably only get about 3 hours of sleep each night. However, the day before results day I'll make sure I sleep throughout the day so I'll be able to stay awake that night!!!

    I think EVERYONE should get their results first. I'm supersticious that way. Also I think with some people if they get their results from school or college then they'll be teachers there to help you sort things out/ring unis/console you etc. rather than you just being at home nearly having a nervous-breakdown and having to GO UP to school looking in a state which I doubt many people, after seeing on track that they're unsuccessful, will want to do. At least once you've got your results you can make your way home and be prepared for seeing what's going to be on this track. But do what's best for you; I don't know what I'd do next year-that said I'm taking a year out so thankfully won't have to make that choice of ''what first, what first!''. LOL.

    AS psych note:P

    And can I just mention that I did the new AQA Psychology and I will admit the questions were, some of them anyway, rather easy as someone pointed out, but then again there were a few that were ambiguous and thus making the markschemes harder for people. Also not only that but we, the new AS spec'rs had the SAME EXACT content-length as the old-specers, that did not change: trust me I was nearly dying over how many case studies and pieces of research I had to learn! Arghh. And I have looked at some old question papers myself for the old spec and I honestly wouldn't have minded doing those essay type questions as they seemed to reappear time after time with nearly the exact same question asked! Maybe I'm wrong but I have looked at about 15 + (and even sent someone on the old spec some) and as I said they were phrased the same way as the new spec people had theirs phrased in the exams taken on the new spec so far, it's just the handful of short-styled questions that made it appear easier when as I've said before the content-length and content itself was the same just not the way they made up the exam.well that's just my opinion, I'm not defending the new spec I'm just saying that we didn't ask for a change and tbh it hasn't change a LOT considering the style of questions asked to us are the same just those added smaller questions do make it appear very easy. Anyway 14 DAYS LEFT.

    Yeah I agree with you! Only problem is I don't have a school to go to or anything, so I'm doing it on my own either way :sad:

    As for you taking a gap year, I did that too but ended up doing an extra A-level so still have the same problem! It's not fair I've hate to endure results days for four years in a row now But for most people that way is much easier, as once you're in, you're in.

    Good luck to you on results day though :yes: :hugs:

    I actually don't give a **** 'cause my offer's unconditional (thank you, January exams).

    However as a grades-missed-then-rejection-upon-reapplication hopeful medic, I need AAA to defend my intellect.

    Yupp, if you've met your required grades. However, there are certain cases when they accept you regardless of what grades you have meaning even if you havent met your required grades there maybe a possibility that they might still offer you a place, hopefully.
