    Oh its possible! :teeth:

    I did some AS resits too, but I've guestimated what sorta marks I should be getting. Like I said a while back, I usually tend to be a teeney weeney bit extremely over generous with the estimating so it gives me an excuse to add them up multiple times an hour in a day until I get it about right! :p:

    Nothing can stop me I tell you!! Nothing! :evil:
    Haha!!! go you!:p: but I have little to NO IDEA how I did in those resits since all my subjects are essay ones... So meh! MEHMEHMEH! lool

    My law grade is the one I'm least looking forward to; I resat my January exam so I've only got my first year UMS score to go by. So this calculation occurs in my mind about 14 times an hour:

    (potential UMS mark in exam 4 - initial exam 4 UMS mark)
    + potential UMS mark in exam 5
    + potential UMS mark in exam 6
    + AS UMS score
    - 480

    If I'm in postivie numbers by the end of it I'm happy, if I'm in negatives I do it again.


    I can't wait for this to end! :eek3:

    I have re-taken one of my GCSE's as I failed it in year 11, my university require me to pass in this subject for me to get a place in universty provided I meet my A-Level grade requirements. Does that mean I will find out whether or not I have got into university or not on the 27th of August, because that is when the GCSE results are out. Am I correct?

    Not long to go before our results are out.

    I am absolutely petrified. I can't predict how well I've done in my exams because I've forgotten what I wrote and also the questions on the exam papers. Does anyone know when the exam papers of June 2009 will be released so that we can access them on the OCR and AQA websites?

    I'm celebrating most of this weekend so I will not think about it at all

    (Unless most of my bf's family mention it :mad2:)

    I think if we can just all forget about it until the 19th, then panic like hell

    I'm pretty sure I got AAA. Suckers. :p:

    Well, I hope so. Damn you FP2 and C4 plus S2. :confused:



    Anyway, atleast I got nice British weather to take my mind away from exam results. Look at that lovely dark and cloudy sky. Plus, how everything is wet and dark.

    P.S. I just found out that this was only 20% likely according to the met office. Its was 65% chance of having a sunny summer but that isn't going to happen.

    Everything is going to be fine. :cool:

    P.P.S. Did anyone watch the outer limits episode where the disable kid saved the town? that was cool.

    AQA take about 9 months to publish them on their site. Don't know about OCR though sorry!

    ahaha I do that too, I made a spreadsheet for it and I used an IF clause so that it displays 'WIN' if the total UMS is 480 or over but if it comes out to under 480 it displays 'FAIL' in which case I proceed to re-predict my marks to reassure myself. :o:

    I have even included a mark boundary modifier to make sure my UMS isn't over stated.

    Is it just me or is waiting for A Level Results 1 Million times more stressful than for GCSE.

    I don't really remember much panicking for GCSE's, the reasons i've come up with this are:
    1) The lack of a tropical relaxing holiday. (Was in Cancun for the GCSE Holidays.)
    2) The amount riding on the outcome. Could determine rest of my life.

    And Finally - TSR!
