    I know exactly how you feel!!The worst thing is even my teachers expect me to get good grades and its so hard to satisfy everyone. I hate it when my friends and peers say 'your so clever, your obviously going to get good grades'. But the question is how do they know? I might end up getting really bad grades and feel utterly humiliated. I feel as if there is too much pressure on me to do well and I don't know whether I'll be able to deliver. :s: :s: :s:

    29 DAYS TO GO :eek3:
    Couldn't agree more. And the negative side of me just thinks that I'm bound to muck up at some stage, but as time goes on, the more there is at stake
    I also really hate it when people just assume that you do well because you're clever, not because you've worked your sorry arse off to do well :mad:

    Times like this make me feel affectionate towards the modular system... getting higher than the desired grade boundary each time means by this time you can afford to lose 2-4 grades per subject.

    Guys stop freaking out. The results will be fine...trust me
    If I fail I know who to beat up now. Only, joking. However, I wish I could have your philosophy but I keep on thinking the worse possible outcome.

    To be honest that doesn't annoy me. Although, most people say I'm not smart because you work hard and that if your smart you wouldn't have to work so hard.

    Is anyone else in the position where their firm and insurance want the exact same grades?
    I have no insurance. Its pretty much get the grades or go into clearing.

    Well, firstly I'm pretty sure that I could make my insurance and my teacher think so. Anyway, originally I was planning to put my firm as insurance but then looked at the course and it seem the best so choose it as firm.

    Try some techniques of Rational Emotive Therapy i.e. saying to yourself that it doesn't matter if you fail.

    But I'm not going into clearing if (or when, I know I won't be getting a B in maths) I fail. Just working and retaking.

    Sadly, if I get a B in maths then I have failed.

    This is offtopic but have you got a lazy eye? or is it the camera? As I got a nephew with a lazy eye.

    I also have no insurance, so I'm extreamly worried!
    What i'm fearing is the possible humiliation if I dont get in, everyone assumes that I will and I would just be devastated if i flunked it

    Yea its a lazy eye, my eye muscles in my left eye are too weak so my eye goes off in the opposite direction. I love it, it makes me, me. Its unique to me

    And from what I've seen in posts before, you are very talented at maths so hopefully the exams went ok and you'll get your A

    I don't really need maths for my offer, I just took it coz I liked it at the end of GCSE, but when I met A2, that opinion changed a lot

    Don't you have to wear a eye patch? As I thought you go blind in the lazy eye. I was wondering does everything double when your eye goes off in the opposite direction?

    Most of what I say is heavily exaggerated. Yeah, A2 C4 was annoying espically vectors.

    I was meant too, but they never gave me one. It doesn't go double at all. I only really look through my right eye, I don't use my left eye much at all. I can get correctove surgery f I want, but that is where I would see in double vision, and I'd rather not have time off work/study (if sept) for my brain to reprogramme itself to recognise imges in a different way. I might go blond in that one later on in life, but oh well. Its short sighted anyway but only slightly

    I hated that, I didn't really answer the vectprs question on the paper. I hope you've done well anyway, it still take knowledge to exaggerate

    Seriously, get it treated. You don't really want to go blind in one eye just because you don't want to wear a eye patch. Can't you just get surgery and go to work and study. I guess you can live with one eye, but that logic is weak. Its like waking up one day and thinking you can live perfectly fine with only three fingers and then cutting off your little finger.

    Yeah, that was like nine marks down the drain.
