    Hmm what would you do if you found out on Track that you didn't get in? Would you tell your parents immediately or wait until you get the actual A Level results to tell them?

    I don't think I could face my parents. :woo:
    I'd tell them so I can get it over and done with.

    I wouldn't want to walk around all day with such a huge burden. I know my mum; she won't smack my face with a frying pan (or atleast the law says she can't) if i told her i'd missed both my offers. Granted she'd be disappointed (as would I), but she'd mask her disappointment by spending the whole day cooking for a massive family feast (sounds stupid i know, but she knows how hard i worked so she'd still like to celebrate my achievements - or atleast i would like her to do something to celebrate working my ass off). Then later that night (when I'd have probably got to terms with the disappointment), she'd ask me what I plan to do/advise me on my plans for next year.

    I dunno what I'd do about results day parties if I missed my offers tbh. Everyone there probably would have passed so it'll be awkward being there, pretending to be happy. I'd always sorta imagined going there and celebrating with everyone, not sitting there watching them celebrate as I sulk in a corner or something. :s:

    [Maybe I should just go there for the free drinks? :ninja:] But I :dontknow:

    Well I kept thinking it was 19 days today, but just made a countdown clock for 6:00 AM on the 20th, and I've been informed it's 18 days! That's far too soon :eek:

    I've been wanting results day to come around quicker for SO long, and now it's getting closer, I want it to go away... :sad:

    I've only done AS Levels but I'm really nervouse about it. I mean my AS results are gonna determine what I can try and get next year, if I get Cs and Ds which I probably will (apart from Biology I'm confident I've got a B in!) then I'm not gonna be able to apply for an ABB uni!Very nervous But in a way I can't wait to get them cause then I can decided what I'm gonna do with my future at the moment I'm just unsure about what to do so hopefully they will help me decide!
