    LOL that is very true.

    You know, I have been the day/night shift now for like 2 days going.

    It makes me laugh.

    Think I can get away with NOT sleeping today at all, just to see what happens?
    I tried it. Gave up around 11am and slept til 8pm...

    Oh right. Aim for the stars.
    I know your capable of getting awesome results so oxbridge might be right for you. Just get up to high A's by doing some retakes. Are you going for the top three or four Unis then having a low insurance. That sounds wise. Just visit all the univeristies they have early open days.
    aww,you have far more faith in me than my family does. yeh, planning on applying to four very competitive unis, and then one potential insurance (although it would still be AAB). I think I can get the grades, but I'm not confident about getting the offers. I guess all one can do is apply and hope.

    Well yes, but TSR is well known for things like these. Some summer 09 mark schemes even got leaked but that topic was quickly deleted.

    Oh right, nevermind then. :o:

    I was under the impression that they could be made available soon since this summer's Edexcel papers and final markschemes were leaked.

    I sat the Jan 09 exam in my Psy last summer, because the June 08 exam got leaked.

    That was interesting, cause the Jan exam was a resit paper, and was therefore immensely easier XD

    No one believed in me and it sucked. I got 7 C’s at GCSE. I got told not to go Uni and I’d be going to a poly university (not that there’s anything wrong with them)
    I got three A’s at the end of AS . So I proved them all wrong lol.
    Be confident, work on your personal statement now (because of all the free time) and make it really good. And read up on interview tips. Make a good impression. Remember the universities need students! They want you fee money. When you apply they see this £££££!

    Are you sure because I now recall that there is a service called E=AQA that might have the boundries earlier. Because after my ICT exam teacher logged on and pulled the papers off.

    Or, more likely, the highest that it will fail to obtain.

    Depends. The Edexcel ones are pretty much always posted on Results Day itself (with the Examiner Reports). The OCR ones were to be published on Results Day or afterwards (with mark schemes, very very slowly), but they didn't do that for Jan 2009 :mad: . The AQA ones are published, again on Results Day (in a special Grade Boundaries file). Those are the legit versions anyway. As for the leaked...
