    On the results do they tell you your total grade for year 12 and 13 combined. Last year in year 12 i was confused over the fact results where split into modules i had to work out the overall grade myself.

    I had a dream some time recently where I got an E for chemistry. But it was proper weird cos in the dream I didn't attend my synoptic exam (which I did in real life obvs lol) and that was the reason why I got an E and I was begging them to let me do it but they said sorry no. Was quite a vivid dream. I woke up quite nervous which was strange as I'm not actually worried about them like I was for GCSE's. I didn't even worry that much for AS's. No doubt I'll start worrying the day before though. But what maybe makes it slightly better for me is that I haven't applied to anything for 2009 entry as I'm taking a gap year so don't have the added pressure of university places.

    They freeze track a few days before results day so unless your uni updates it REALLY early, you probably won't see an update. Won't stop me from checking though!

    Joking.

    Weird thing is i see where you ASers are coming from. Last year I hated waiting for results because there was quite a bit of pressure on me to do well because "everyone gets 100% in their AS exams", and "the A2s only get much harder than AS so you wan't to bank as many UMS marks as possible in case you drop a grade at A2", blah blah blah. Having that constantly drained into my head was so annoying! :mad2:

    Granted most of it was true (except probably my first point :p:), but I hated it becasue not only did I feel I had to get an A, I felt I had to get a high A to compensate for A2. Getting anything lower than a high A was seen as failure. But with A2s its a different story - 480/600 (in my atleast 3 of my A2s) is all I want! :puppyeyes: I just want to meet my offer, i don't care about UMS scores tbh. So yeah, at A2 although theres pressure to get the grades, there's less pressure to get a high grade.

    I'm probably making no sense whatsoever, but my point is hidden somewhere in those paragraphs.

    My paranoia about not having reached the grades I need is negatively correlated with the amount of time left before results day

    The problem with results day is that all my teachers are counting on me to get an A apart from history who say a high B or an A and I've told them and I've been telling them all bloody year that this isn't likely, but they're so determined that it will happen!!! They just want someone to do that well so that when the local paper shows up our school has something to say that makes them look like they have someone as clever as people from the grammar school and it's really frustrating because it puts a lot of pressure on me and it's so annoying because they say it so often that all my friends are now also convinced I will get AAAAAAAAAAAAA (well not that many) and the teachers are going to feel quite let down when I don't
    apologies for the ramble.
    I have the exact same problem, I don't go to grammar school either and most students get Cs and Ds in my school, but i usually get As and Bs so teachers are expecting AAA from me on the 20th but i know that won't happen, biology was not good for me this year but the teachers will not listen to me, and they think I'll get an A no problem and like ill be happy with a B, they don't care what I would be happy with as long as they can say they taught me if I got an A. Same goes for my family and friends and I hate it........"oh you'll get your three As" but I wonder how awkward it will be when I don't? It's just added unnecessary pressure and its more frustrating to think people think I'll get three As when the uni I want to go to only asks for Bs!!
