The Exams Thread

Recommended Posts


Before my Latin GCSEs I played frisbee in all my study leave and got an A*.

But before my AS exams I spent most of the time sunbathing and chatting to friends... and got a handfull of Bs, Cs and Ds, and had to do a lot of resits.

So the moral is, GCSE you can afford to mess around, AS and A2 you can't. I don't remember being that scared about GCSEs though, except when waiting outside the exam room before the exam.

I was predicted A*s for english, and got an A and a B.

If it's an consolation to whoever has English Lit tomorrow I managed to screw mine up (I answered a wrong question, missed a 1/3 of the paper) and still got a C :D It's like my proudest moment ever, I was so set up to fail it.


But I'm not convinced and your hopeless hearts won't stick. For the first time I know, this is now who I am.

Ugh, my GCSEs got off to the worst start imaginable 2 years ago when I got absolutely no sleep whatsoever the night before my first exam (RE) and completely messed the whole thing up. Thankfully I managed to calm myself down after that and I ended up with the results I wanted in most cases. Still wish I'd got more than a D in RE though... oh well, these things happen. Really can't believe I ended up with an A* for English Lit, in the first question I just rambled on about the use of stage directions in An Inspector Calls for about 3 pages and I can't even remember what the hell I did after that. English exams are always the worst but it's the best feeling in the world when you get through 'em. :biggrin:

And trust me, GCSEs are nowhere near as bad as A levels... I got an A* for GCSE Science but I'm currently on a D for A level Biology. :cry:

A levels are horrible... I got A* at Latin GCSE, but now I'm struggling so much and unless the teacher goes through it word by word and tells me what to translate when, I can't make any sense of it, and the exam's in a couple of weeks time :(

I'm not really bothered about AS Level results. At the end of the day I've done average, I'll be disappointed if I don't do 'average' though.

well in Scotland the Standard grades are from 1-7.

1 being for the brightest and 7 for those who may not have bothered going to School, due to my long term illness I never went back into a classroom from the age of 14 and I was forced to leave at age 16. Guess I cant complain too much as I have managed to get a job and some other college qualifications.

I'm going to Nottingham! :biggrin:

I was up all night with my friends worrying about the results so I'm not very articulate at the moment. I got straight A grades, I'm still in shock. I just scraped an A in Latin, I am so happy, all those hours struggling with translations and literary techniques were worth it in the end. I also got As in Geography and Economics which I am happy with. I was predicted ABB, so it's amazing to have got AAA. I've also got an A in History AS so all together it's pretty good and I'm very happy. I cried when I saw my results, then stared at the paper in disbelief for about 10 minutes.
