    22 days (for some) :eek3:

    Hadn't popped in here today so just thought I'd drop by to see how everyone was coping. :hi:

    Yeah 21/22 (depending on how you're counting down) days is still quite a long way to go. Maybe when we get to 14 days, I’ll begin to get nervous. :cool:

    I'm trying not to focus too much on results - decided to keep myself occupied by catching up on some TV shows I missed out on when I was revising. But yeah, I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that there’s nothing I can do now to change my grades so I might as well enjoy whats left of the summer before they do come out.

    [Whats really went on in my mind a few minutes before I posted this:
    Omadays!!! I'm completely bricking it. *craps a little in his boxers*. 21 days is like tomorrow! OMG! *screams*. I know, :idea: I'll just drop by on TSR and pretend to be as cool as a cucumber - I'll lie and say that I'm going to catch up on some shows when I've watched them all already...TWICE! Instead I’ll mentally add up my anticipated UMS scores for the umpteenth time today to see if they add up to 480. Hopefully that should get me to fall asleep! If not, I guess its another dose of sleeping pills. *rushes to the medicine cabinet*]

    Waiting for results....could there be a tenser time? I tend to block out the thought pretty easily, but when I do think about it, it can get worrying. Even though I did a massive amount of revision (For myself) and thought all 6 of my exams went well, I still worry. I practically had to teach myself half of the knowledge for one of my history exams and completed only one practice essay before sitting the real thing.

    I just want this more than anything else.

    I had a dream last night that I had received all of my results. They were exactly as expected but I hacked into Edexcel's system a week early. I printed them off in the exams office and the examinations officer didn't care one bit :L

    This is a bad sign..

    put yourself in a coma till the 20th. However, even though your in a coma you may still be thinking about it.
    But I just want to not think about results :p: Coma may not be the best idea...

    Does anybody know how the results themselves will be presented? Will it be individual exam results, or will there just be a total out of 600 UMS?

    The more I know about it, the more I can mentally prepare for judgement day.

    ...I hope I don't have to add up the UMS, because otherwise i'll probably shout 'SCORE! 480 EXACTLY!'

    And then I'll double check and it'll be like 412.
