    It was awesome. I wasn't expecting it either, I admit that I actually cried when I saw it.
    (It was for vet medicine, was really hoping that I'd got in).
    Good luck for the 20th! :yep:

    Will you be going to any other educational institution, such as college? You've probably said, sorry, but I skipped a whole bunch of pages from this thread.

    I would probably contact your school for any help you'd like - you'll need to get a reference from them in any case. To be honest, it's not that complicated and you could probably get away with just posting here for the few non-obvious things (help with personal statement and so on) but it would be worth having something to fall back on.

    If you're in college, you may find that they will help you through UCAS. I have to admit I know vanishingly little about college, but I'd probably be more surprised that they didn't than if they did. LuhLah probably knows?

    College may also be willing to give you a reference, but it would be worthwhile not burning any bridges with any teachers (and it's the individual's responsibility) who you would like to write your reference!

    Closer, I would love to post a screenshot but for some reason my computer is being faulty and not letting me onto Track. It just has your different uni/course choices down the side and when it was updated, as well as your status (Conditional/Withdrawn/Unconditional etc).
    Winniepig, I was expecting an email like that as well but I didn't get one either (yet my status changed).
    Thank you 02sd2607! It's a mighty relief, I was terrified of results day but now I'm over the moon.
    Well you've obv worked v.hard for it so you deserve it, it really isn't as easy as the media constantly make out
    Im so jelous, I have 14 days to wait

    Yeah they say that exams are getting easier, but even if that's true it still doesn't mean that it's easy to get the results you want! Ah well.
    Thanks again, and good luck!
    Tbh I would be going nuts if I still had 2 weeks to wait, the wait until 5th August almost killed me hehe.

    Yeah, it makes you feel as if all of your effort was worthless. Even if you get top results, the media are making it feel like less of a victory than it should. Pfft, I try not to listen to them anyway haha.

    I make a point of trying to find really old exam papers, and trying them.

    And I can say for maths and the sciences at least, they haven't gotten easier
