Or any equivalent exams in other countries?

Just a random thought seeing as I'm pretty sure that I'm going to. I managed to fluke decent grades at GCSE without revising (4 A's and 4 B's) but I realised that the whole not revising approach isn't working out for me this time after looking at some practice papers. I managed to convince myself that if I do fail that it isn't the end of the world and that I'll still somehow manage to get a decent paying job.

But yeah, my abilty to not give a dam about exams probably hasn't done me much good and I just wondered if theres anyone out there who is in a similar situation and if there is anyone who did mess up their A levels because I would like to hear about what you did after.

Also, I know I'm stupid for not revising, ah well...

Don't get me wrong, I've been trying my hardest in it, but my hardest isn't good enough anymore. I've gone from Bs to Es. I guess I've just turned stupid.

Some people in my country decided to pay $5000 for the exam papers...then write it...and then go tell the newspapers that they leaked the papers and now the entire country must re-write the exams which will be much harder than before

I didn't exactly screw them up, but I got lower than the uni places I'd accepted would take. It really wasn't the end of the world.

You really do have to learn to work rather than get by on having a high intelligence and good memory when you're at uni.

I didn't screw up much. I expected BBC and got CCD. Luckily, the uni courses i wanted had quite low entry requirements.

Not going back for A2, gonna get a job and do an open university degree when I have the finances.

I ****ed mine up completely, got 2 B's and a C at AS, which wasn't as well as I could have done but it was ok. Then a new Wetherspoons opened near my college in the second year so I ended up with 2 C's and an E in A level. Ever since then I've completely failed at education lol

I'm doing Highers, the Scottish equivalent of A Levels. Higher English is tomorrow and to be perfectly honest i have probably enough through out the year. However, i have been studying all day and we have been doing the timed essays and interpritations in class so i am hoping for a B. I really hope i do good in all these exams i really want AABBB but i think i might get AABBC, i shall pray that i get good results :P.
#27
Dropped English Language and Literature as I didn't improve even with practice, though I got an A in Lang and B in Lit and GCSE. All I did was get frustrated. Found out yesterday I'm actually dyslexic and dyspraxic though, so that explains a lot.

Left with History, Philosophy and Maths. Worked hard for Stats module, working my ass off after tomorrow for Core and History and Philosophy seem alright.

A Levels are brilliant for the fact you get what you put into it.

A last minute smack in the end from some Uni mates put me in shape.

Brain needs food to work. Try eating occasionally.


And I'm about to start my A2s. Did alright on my AS levels with little work. I'm reasonably solid on all my subjects this year and still have about 3 weeks until most of my exams. Plenty of time for revision...

I hate A2s. Actually, i really just hate the FP2 and M2 parts of maths. But I have FP2 tomorrow so I can fail it and get it out of the way.

And the Editorial Writing paper for Eng Lang is a joke...

Further is a total waste of time anyway. I wish I hadn't bothered taking it.

yeah, i screwed mine up pretty bad.
Got kicked off my art A level for spending more time drawing tattoo's and things that had nothing to do with the actual themes we were given
I also got a D in business studies (got B's on all the tests but never handed my coursework in) and a pass in BTEC DJ technology. but I'm in a steady, relatively well paying job and applying for management training so it worked out well in the end

My FP2 exam is on the 18th of June. Thank god. Far away.

My plan is to do really well in D2 and S2 so I can fail FP2.

You sometimes get lower offers. I didn't though. But it's useful if you're doing a Maths or Physics degree (as I am) so it's not a complete waste of time.
