    This thread and all threads like this should be banned. As a study shows that looking at this thread will slow down time making the wait longer.
    lol that's actually very true. I re-subscribed to this thread and now time seems to be going slow. *unsubscribes*

    So true! Its funny how people forget that some African parents can be as pushy! Thankfully mine aren't too bad. :woo:

    Son to African parent: I really found the [insert name of subject] paper hard; I think I may end up with a B overall. *ducks as he prepares to get some dirty African slap*

    African parent to son:
    So long as you've done your best, I'm still proud of you! *puts on a fake smile*

    What they really mean: Boy, you better get those damn A grades and get into uni, or I'm disowning you! [Insert African relatives name]'s son went to [insert name of prestigious uni] to study [insert name of prestigious course]. I need you to do just as well, if not better, so I can brag about you at family reunions!

    :p:
    thats my nan, it really annoys me though because she doesnt even speak to me unless she can use it to gain an upperhand on her sisters

    About time going slow. Its sad but the weather itself limits what I can do, for example I can't play tennis for two weeks as it been raining or looking likes it going to rain for ages. No parkour too. Although, that was lazyness not doing it on sunday.

    So the only thing I can do is play computer games or internet.

    P.S. Although, time hasen't really seem slow for me. I kept of thinking it must be 44 days to go not 33 days!
    P.P.S. At this rate it will soon be 10 days to go.
    P.P.P.S. I wonder if TSR will collapse under the strain of lots of user? yeah to last year. My brother will probably be on the computer at night so I would be trying to get to sleep. I wonder how I will actually sleep. I might just try and pull a all nighter then go on the computer at five a clock to check track?

    I'm definitely waking up at 6am to check. When its it meant to be update? As I heard from my teacher that its 3am, but alot of TSR users say 6am to 7am.

    I'm not even sure anymore, but last year I remember people started posting saying their UCAS track had been updated at around 7am.

    Theres a thread on it here, maybe you could ask around there, because I'm slightly confused.

    What sometimes could happen is that they will get an email from the Uni saying how they have been accepted but I don't know if that is before Track updates

    I remember the first time I came across TSR was last year when I was trying to find out the GCSE results day. I also remember seeing a huge countdown thread like this too. :P I don't find time is going slower but thats not a bad thing really- it just means I have more time to prepare for my imminent death on that day. :rolleyes:

    I don't know whether to check Track before or after I go pick up my result. If I do it before and it hasn't changed, I'll be mardy, but if I do it after, I'll be happier.....or mardy if it changed REALLY early

    Yeah, I know, laziness is a foul thing. I also thought it would be something along those lines, given the context of the sentence. Oh well.

    My first post on this thread :awesome:

    For my GCSEs, I was nervous after I finished my last exam. Results would be the thing that lingered on my mind all day. But for my AS results, I don't seem to be as nervous. Infact, this time, I've not really thought about it too much.

    I guess the build up to results day is like getting drunk. Building up to it, you'll have a couple of drinks, you won't really feel anything. As the days pass by, you start to feel tipsy. When it comes to a week before, you're completely ****** out of your head. The day before, well put it this way, you're bent over a table being taken from behind :ninja:
