    Should have read the rest of the thread :cool: But as far as I know, universities don't know what other universities you've applied to. So I presume they wouldn't know whether you have an insurance or not either.

    I don't get why I'm having so many dreams about my results! Even though none have actually shown conclusive results (i.e., me seeing them) I was never like this for my GCSEs. I hope this isn't some kind of bad omen. :-/

    I keep imagining that I'll miss a grade by one UMS mark, by getting for example 479/600 UMS rather than 480. That would be awful!

    So true. I wish I would just feel less stressed right now, but then again, I've always been one to stress after exams anyway - even after GCSEs. :o: Oh the smae! :p:

    Your firm choice will be aware of your insurance choice

    Ooohhh! Lucky for some ay! Have fun? I WILL go next summer, even if my parents are not willing to pay for my flight; I'll just use my uni loan/bank overdraft! So much good weather there, and I want proper food! :rant:

    [And you're treated soooooo nicely when you go there just because you speak differently! :ninja:]

    There's only 23 days to go and I'm so anxious. Part of me wants to get my results and is fed up of waiting but the other part doesn't really want to know. I think if I don't get the grades that I need I'll lock myself in my bedroom for that day and just cry.

    God knows. I can remember when there was 60 days left :eek:. Now its 23.

    Only way to enjoy summer holidays without thinking about results day is to go on holiday which unfortunately I didn't.

    How have previous years coped? The wait is too long. I've been thinking and dividing a strategic plan for weeks and it is possible to mark much quicker. And give the results online. I don't care if I had to pay extra to get my marks. :woo:

    Same. What makes that suck even more is the fact that all my friends are on holiday so I'm stuck at home, on my own, doing nothing :rolleyes:

    I'm going to try and come up with a list of things to do each day so I keep myself reasonably busy - for example today I've cleaned out the chickens and I'm planning on sorting my room out for throwing out/charity shops/uni/loft. That's a major task so hopefully should take a few days :p: Then I'm going to crack the saxophone out and try to learn some guitar.

    23 days is still a long way to go!!!......you guys should start freaking out by midnight of 19th august lol. I have a feeling A-level pass rate will rise to a new high and funny enough ppl will flood this site advertising the number of As they managed to accumulate lol!! and offcourse subsequent A-level exams will end up being a nut cracker

    I was one of those people at AS! (239 instead of 240) really knocked me confidence.. but on the other hand it cant happen to me again surely?!
