    I have already done half the course and have an A* in German and French gcses so i can get by. The training is just less than a year of school so in that respect it isn't that much.

    Yeah with all the worrying of gcse failure i've looked into it :rolleyes:
    Aren't you predicted 10A*'s? what is failing to you? missing that last A* in english or something? And do you know for sure you've got an A* in German, i thought results came out on August 27th? or are you just confident?

    Firstly how did you know i am predicted 10a* ?:eek:
    Well in the other post i meant to say i am doing german gcse and have an A* in French from last year because my school takes it early. erm well anything below 8* and i'd be disappointed and anything below 4* and i'd feel like i've failed (btw that did not mean to sound like i am showing off but it's just average at my school is like 6a* and having gotten 10a* in the mocks i'd feel dissappointed i wasn't doing my gcses last year :rolleyes:.) But being probably the most pessimistic person in my year, (i have always come out of an exam saying "that was the worst exam of my life") so i always have this idea where i have done something like write the wrong centre number on my exam or forgetting to write my details on the extra sheet which would mean i have failed and gotten something like a D so that is the main reason for the thread. Also the fact that it is a bit of fun and that not many will be being serious on this thread.

    What's failing to you?:confused:

    I think you wrote your predictions a few times on the GCSE forum.

    But i do feel your anxiety, i don't like saying this but my predictions are 10A* 2A's and an A in applied module (D1) of maths as (it was 9A*'s 3A's but my D.T. teacher changed his mind towards the end). I would be pretty gutted if i got less than 9 because ditto i got that in the mocks. wow as if you're year average is 6A*'s that's pretty damn good!

    My failure would be if i got bad results in general because i would have noone else to blame and the pressure from everyone is so damn much it's unreal. like when people say you better get straight A*'s and i try frantically to tell them that i'm not even predicted that

    AND OCR English paper 1 is a horror i wouldn't like to rethink but i'm having faith.

    Seriously putting down my predicted grades makes me feel so vulnerable .

    My plan is to cause as much chaos and destruction before I get stopped, something equivalent to a 6* wanted level on GTA, you'd be surprised how easy it is to make a crude cruise missile.
