    OMG you are not alone in that!
    I've had a recurring dream where I open my results envelope and Ive messed up my grades and the uni rejects me (I've had this dream 9 or 10 times)
    I've never really had recurring dreams in the past.
    they're torturing us making us wait this long :p: Scotland get theirs next week...not fair

    well i had my first results day dream last night. i got a C in politics, a B in sociology and in law i was one ums point away from an A. so i sent an exam off for a remark and i got a phone call from the chief examiner, telling me he was 'concerned about the marking' and that i'd been marked unfairly, so he was going to remark it.
    i don't know if i did get an A though...

    I'm guessing 'conditional' will go to 'unconditional' or 'unsuccessful', depending. Obviously we hope for the former...

    Unsuccessful - Not accepted

    Unconditional - Accepted

    Conditional - Apparently either this means the Uni hasn't updated

    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 feel exactly the same way. I couldn't wait for July to end, but now it's August I don't want to know what my results are. After having stayed up the whole night before results day I think I'll just switch on the TV and watch the news which will probably be broadcasting results day from some colleges. Then I'll have a panick attack and run around like a headless chicken, when the running comes to an end I'll just go get ready. I'm so petrified, even though there are still 18 days left it feels like results day is next week.

    :eek3: :mad: :eek:

    I'm feeling a strange rush of excitement and dread, much like waiting to go on a fast rollercoaster.

    I think this year (AS level) is a lot less clear-cut than GCSEs, at least for me... I had a good idea how I would perform at GCSE due to the volume of mocks and modules we had done, but now, A levels are just so unpredictable!

    But good luck to everyone, I'm sure everything will turn out okay on the day.

    Damn thread title change! The other one was so much better. On a side note a friend just sent me this link on MSN... really do have to laugh that someone actually made it (and apologies if the link has been previously mentioned in the thread... really can't be bothered to look for it )!

    I feel so sorry for those whose schools won't let them in til later, we're allowed to go in from 8:30, normal registration time! I'm pretty thankful for that. Me and my best friend have agreed to walk in that day (about an hour's walk) just to um, clear our heads? (Unlikely, I know!) Though she'll be checking Track beforehand and I've decided not to so it'll either be a ecstatic or depressed walk for her
    ha ha, I am doing the same thing!

    This is the reason.

    I wasn't nervous for AS's at all. There can always be retakes.

    But this year...
