    So, you were predicted 10A*..you open the envelope and to your dismay, you get lower results..what were you expecting personally?
    I was predicted 9A* and 2As.
    I'm hoping for 4A*s, 4A's and 2Bs.
    In the worst case scenario that I can possibly imagine (as GCSE's are easy) I'd get 2A*, 6As, 3Bs.

    What does everyone else feel is suitable to expect, compared to what they were predicted?

    I really am dreading it! I am probably going to be very upset. I really should have worked harder, but what done is done

    Ahaha, yeah. Oh god, that'd be so bad...
    Then either having to ring the exam board with a shaky, nervous hand or wait another few weeks to have them sent!
    ..Or to have to resit them all again the next year because only your data had been corrupted and lost!

    No, I was stating my opinion. Enough with the whole "unfair on others who don't expect as high results" stuff. Keep it out of this thread.
    It's up to others what they achieve. I don't look down on anyboby..it's just my predicted results that I was stating.

    I'd go mad if I had to resit them, probably force my school to use my predicitions as my GCSE grades. Waiting longer would be just as worse aswell I haven't waited 10 weeks + for nothing

    I'm sure your results will be great, it's just all the worrying that is making you expect the worst..but I agree, expecting the worst is a good idea so you're not disappointed ever.

    The reason I know I will at least achieve that is because I have done in past mock papers, and I've tried my hardest for every single exam or coursework that I completeted.

    Yes..they were in my opinion, and in the opinion of many others.
    How difficult or easy they were to anyone else is their own opinion and they can feel free to oppose my opinion here if they wish..as long as it's not attacking me for mine.
    Freedom of opinion and all that.

    Oh god I did my GCSE's ages ago but please tell me you touched wood after posting that "Worst case scenario"... famous last words


    And no one should be worrying, everyone always does better in their GCSE's than they think they're going to... I've never heard of anyone that hasn't tbh.
