    Hiya @zaynab_5
    It's so understandable that you are nervous about getting your AS results. Well done for sharing how you feel as sharing our worries is a really good way to deal with them. Just know that its normal to feel this way especially as you have said the grades are important for UCAS and missing some time in college means it can't have been easy for you. I am sure that you tried your very best and that's all anyone can ask for.

    You said that you are worried about getting into second year. Please be reassured that even if you do not get into second year, there will still be options available to you. In that case it would be best to talk to your college who will be able to give you all the options like retaking or going down a different path like doing an apprenticeship.

    Overall, I think the best thing you can do for the rest of today is to try to distract yourself as much as possible. I know you will be thinking about your results a lot but do you have a hobby that can help to pass the time? Try listening to music you love, watching a film, or just socialising with others to help ease your nerves.

    Please remember that your grades do not define you, you are so much more than a grade on a piece of paper.

    Sending big hugs and lots of luck your way <3

    Hi @zaynab_5

    Just wanted to come on and reiterate what @Kat has said!

    Firstly, best of luck for tomorrow.
    And I understand how you feel. I remember getting my results last year, and it was really stressful, but it did work out in the end for me. But you've put in a lot of hard work, despite missing that time from college. I really hope it goes well.

    Also, your grades don't define you. Try to get to sleep early and listen to some music or watch something that's familiar, or maybe play any games that you like too? Anything that makes you feel relaxed and can ease your nerves.

    I also understand that due to COVID, grades are super confusing and stressful too. Mine were also predicted and not based on exams, so I really know what this is like. There are options for you if things don't work out, and I'm sure there will be people you can talk to at college if you want to discuss anything with them.

    It’s tough I know, I’m in the same boat. I hope they are fair to us next year with respect to exams and university places as I suspect it will be very competitive especially if there is a spill over from this year.
