    Haha, it's not the shame i'm worried about, more like the inconvenience
    They are annoying, especially when you want to concentrate on doing well in your A2s and you've got that annoying AS resit to revise for.

    Meh it takes like a month to learn a module and at the beginning of the year is a bit slow so it doesnt end up being such an inconvenience...I actually think I went to college more when I had my resits because in between classes and after school I'd be in the library til 6-7 revising If you don't mind your social life taking the back seat for a bit, then it is a minor inconvenience

    Well, if you're doing science A-lvls, it's not inconvenient at all - rather (like one of my friends has put it) "fairly enjoyable/helpful" . E.g. the synoptic papers and most of the A2 stuff will be linking back to AS stuff. Doing resits helps you to get your head around AS again and it's "fun" to revise science! xD (okay..may be the latter just applies to me and a few individuals..xD).

    Yes! She gets near full marks, then critizises people who are unhappy with a B. ''If I had a B I would be so happy'', ''but you got an A, so shut your face'' :mad: (in my head).

    (They're really quiet if they get bad marks, and then talk down anyone who got good marks, syaing their boasting. The hypocrites.)
    I hear ya.... the scumbags :holmes:

    I don't think they're that inconvenient especially if you need them in synoptic.

    Personally for every single exam including GCSE's I've always only spent the night before to revise. Did the same for my A2's and AS's aswell, not because I was over confident, but because I've just been too lazy and nothing goes into my head except the day before. And I took Biology, Chemistry & Maths so not easy subjects. Even so, I think I did pretty well as the exams went good for me. So I don't think the AS resits were that inconvenient personally as it never made much difference to my revising lol.

    I'm fairly sure I missed out by quite a bit. I needed to get a B in chemistry, sitting on a mid-C and completely messed up the biggest exam on the course.

    If I'm still on a C, my firm might be smart enough to see how awesome I am. :awesome:

    I don't have a clue what I will say if I don't get in, tbh sometimes I feel like the grades I get arn't what I want, its what other people want, people can expect so much you sometimes, its added pressure to do well, I personally would be happy with 2 Bs and a C but my family and friends want me to get at least 2 As cos I got them in AS year.

    Erm I dunno. Maybe something like;

    You: I'm bla bla bla. I'm just received my A level results and found out i narrowly missed my offer to read bla bla bla. I was wandering if it was possible for you to consider letting me start the course this Sept in spite of this. My module grades were generally good bla bla bla, and its only one module thats really pulling down my grade bla bla bla.
    [Pause if you realise you're talking too much because you don't want to just babble on.]

    Person on phone: Well we can't because bla bla bla

    You: I'm aware of the severe competition for places on bla bla bla but I’d really like to study bla bla bla. [This is the time to REALLY BEG likes there's no tomorrow!!!!]



    This was just off the top of my head so it’s probably rubbish. :p:

    But seriously, a scripted conversation, while useful, may prove pointless as the convo may not follow through as imagined. You could get a rude person that just shuts you up as soon as you start/anything really.

    And let’s not be too pessimistic. Positive thinking guys! We'll all meet our uni offers!

    Hey guys,
    just out of interest, how are you going to face the envelope on the day?

    I mean, are you going to just open it, or hide somewhere and open it lol? xD

    Oh and also, last year for GCSEs, some people got phoned up by their teachers before "the" day about their results. By any chance this happens at your school? o__O?

    I'm really scared...ahhhhhhh :woo:
