    About a month to go. Argh, I feel so stupid and angry at myself for putting myself through all this stressing about results. It wouldn't have been so bad if I had the ability to just BLOCK OUT EVERYTHING and actually work, but instead I left it to cramming. I've failed.

    I should have learned from my disappointments (mainly my ASs, and even my GCSEs could have been a lot better), but they just seem to put me off even more! I NEED these grades for my firm choice though - I thought at least THAT would motivate me. I need AAB...

    Quick question:

    Will teachers/referees/head teachers/ any staff find out via UCAS or any other means our results or if we have got our firm choice before the day of the results?

    A lot of information is being juggled about but nothing seems to clarify this!

    School get them a day or two early I think, so yeah they probably have a look at them. I think some schools even compile the results onto a sheet of paper for their students, so I think the teachers will know.

    I feel like I have missed my offer by a grade and I am sooooo worried I really want to go to UCL
    Same with exeter. The last month or so I have been telling myself I'm not going to such an extent that I actually now believe it. It's a case of if your pesimistic you can't be disappointed. On the other hand if I don't get into my insurance then I will be properly screwed :woo:

    Well, in my sixth form we were made to fill in a form detailing our uni places and the grades we have to achieve. This was apparently done so that if we have fallen short of what we need then the teachers can warn us in advance i.e. the night before or early morning?
