    Thanks for the welcome!

    "I was wondering, is everyone going to get their results on their own or do they plan on going with somebody?"

    I typed that question, then changed it a bit & now reading back it's not how I wanted it to sound. I really need to go to university because I've only been out of school a month or two & I've already forgotten how to form sentences correctly.
    Heehee i feel the same! My brain is going stale from the lack of learining in the holday XD

    This is what I have to do, get 2 buses and it takes about an hour. I might just try and listen to some calming music.

    It only take about 10 minutes to drive there but the bus goes halfway round the world so I decided a car would be the better option :p:

    The last time I checked this thread was a week ago, at page 49 and post 900-ish. There's been over 3000 posts since. Jesus.

    I was thinking of taking my mother... that sounds so stupid though :-S

    It's just I'm the first person in my family to do A-Levels & if I'm successful then I'll be the first person to go to university. I was born when my parents were 19 so we're really close. Mum's already booked the day off work because she said whatever happens, she'll take me out for lunch anyway. She's not expecting me to ask her, so I haven't really decided yet.

    I thought about going with friends but decided against it. I would feel too awkward if I got the results I needed but they didn't and I'm sure they'd feel the same if it were the other way around. I've arranged to meet up with them for a drink that night instead :-)

    I have to get a bus on my own, which takes 40 mins - 1 hour, cos I live farthest from my friends. My iPod will be my best friend on the way. I'll be meeting my friends at school, though, which is what we do every year.
    It will be worse if Track tells me I didn't get in, then I'll have to stop myself from crying the whole way. :sad:

    If I'm successful I'd probably give my mum a call and then go out with my friends after.
    If I'm not I would just rush home and try and sort out all this clearing shizz.

    Regarding you being the first person to reach this stage of education, don't worry about it. My brother - now at Cambridge - was the first to sit his AS- and A-levels and my parents would have been delighted what had ever happened. As long as you've put all of your effort in, then you shouldn't worry. You know that you have tried your best.

    And the best thing to do with friends, at least I think so, is to see what everyone gets before doing anything. If someone does badly (though, touch wood, they won't) then they may not feel up to going out.

    Thanks JonCha, next time my friends mention going out to celebrate, I think I'll tell them I'd rather wait until we get our results before we decide on going some place.

    I really did try my best & my parents know that too so yeah, I think they'll be happy :-)

    No problem! I don't like premeditating events, so I haven't mentioned it to any of my friends (and they have done likewise)...

    Hopefully I won't preform shockingly on the 20th, so you won't look at me and think I was talking a load of rubbish. >_<

    Oh, today I received a book list from my firm offer.

    I don't have an unconditional offer so I think it's a bit strange to be sent a letter like that this early :-S
