    good luck everyone

    'i hope you get the grade you deserve' - which was basically our old teachers' way of saying i hope you don't get an A if you were a lazy ****!
    No wonder my photography teacher used to say it to me all the time!

    I'm not. Mainly because Oxford are notoriously slow at updating track and I think seeing an unchanged screen will do nothing for my nerves. Also, I want the experience of being around all my friends and teachers when I find out. Well this is how I feel at the moment anyway, I might crack on results day...

    How come you won't be checking track?

    I don't think i'm going to check, unless i randomly wake up at half 6 and succumb to pressure.

    Well, if I didn't make it into my firm, I wouldn't be able to pick myself up and walk into 6th form to collect my results, knowing I'd let myself down, and seeing everyone's expectant faces.

    I'm checking track because I don't want to go into college to see i've failed then breakdown :p: (hopefully that won't happen!)
    I still think its too much of an 'easy' option though, waiting all these months just to find your fate on a computer screen..

    I'm not - partly because I'd prefer to know my actual grades first, but mostly because there is no way I'm getting up for half six in the holidays. No way :p:

    AHHHHHHHHHHHH NO!
    I've been waiting my butt off, thinking it was somewhere between 12th and 15th..
    12 more days?! Seriously, this is stressful!
    Over here, public schools get results like 2 months back.. And I can't get accepted into Uni until I get these results.
    :woo:
    -hopes the days pass by quicker!!-

    Good Luck all!

    OH MY GOSH I can just imagine that! I can see everyone running around happy and me being the only person not to get in, and the journey to my school is a long one so I will just be a wailing wreck on the bus, AND I'm going with a friend so that's just going to be awkward if I don't get in. AHHH I hate this!........:woo: :eek3:

    I need to feel in control though, so I really want track to update if I can go to school. That way, if I haven't got into my firm I know that I can buy the independent and go to school ready to ring them up when I know my results - I couldn't bear it if I didn't know, went into school, got my results and then had to try and find a computer somewhere to check if they'd accepted me!!

    Oh my god, in an hour and 10 minutes, it will be 11 DAYS!!!!

    ( sorry for any heart attacks caused :tongue: )

    That sounds SO SO soon! In the past hour I've suddenly had a major results freak out, they come so sporadically I'm never prepared and go into complete psycho mode, ARGHHHH :woo: :shock:

    Btw, whilst I'm here, a question. I did my results at a private candidates centre, and they gave me the slip for Edexcel results plus, but they also gave a note telling me to email them between 7th-12th (or something) about my Edexcel plus slip. Only problem is I lost the note and can't remember what they wanted me to email them about, or why I had to do it. I would've thought that if I've got the pin, and I've logged in fine, that everything's done? :confused:

    Can anyone think what this is about? I hope this doesn't mean I won't get my results... Do they need it to 'sign up' or something? I thought once you got your pin, it was all done.....
