No reason you'd care, just wanted to vent after an apallingly difficult exam.
Anyone else been in this situation?
How can you be so sure you've blown it? Doe it stand on exam results alone?
i needed at least a C in the exam and i didnt manage to answer at least half the questions, despite doing shitloads of revision beforehand.
PM me for further hints and tips for making a terrible mess of your life
and your phone with you on results day so you can get a place through clearing nice and early
also, if it was truly hard, they'll shift the curve and you might end up being fine anyway.
and the shifting of the curve wont make much difference if you're massively under the grade boundary.
Master that and it'll cancel out any uni disappointment.
yeah i didn't like that
perfect student until it started to really matter
and judging by the fact that I am on here instead of revising I may well be in this position. If the exam was really hard though the grade boundaries will be low, I did a practise paper earlier that I thought I did appallingly in but it was only something like 52 percent for a B.
I fucked up as AS level economics paper and got a D (my worst exam performance ever... so far), but still got a B overall, and still ended up with all the results I needed for uni.
Just forget about this one, what's done is done, focus on the next one.
I got an E in my last politics module at A level and ended up with a B overall. This is because I'm THE BEST, though. If you're not THE BEST, then sorry. (You're not the best cos I am, pay attention.)
basically, ive fucked up my chances of getting into a comparatively easy to get into course with no employability.
I think the problem is that I live in a small town in the country where there are zero prospects and i have no money. And according to my parents im not allowed to resit either. Brilliance, cleaning toilets for the rest of my life in fucking Shropshire. What is the point of existence.
as an aside, you're probably old enough to make your own decisions now
You would probably end up cleaning toilets anyway.
Apply for jobs
Move to city
I even repeated the exam I got a D in and did WORSE.
they're so fucking easy. Anyway, best of luck to you.
after getting a high B last year
my attendance was like 30% in psych that term though and also i'm shit
Do fuck off. That would be nice.
That is the single hardest paper I have ever done.
round the rim.
unless it was maths. then fair enough.
of production line jobs, if you're interested.
PM Untrue and he'll give you the details
As long as the uni isn't Oxford or Cambridge, their all pretty much money grabbers and you will be the paying customer.
they'll be a bit sympathetic to your plight.
No big deal.
