    So i'm on holiday for my GCSE results day (25th of Aug) and i'm not gonna lie, I really want to open my resuts on the same day as everyone else. I have a few options, and I just wanted some imput on the situation. I'm still in England, and my dad is willing to take me back for the day, however it is a 3 hour drive, and I feel like it will break up the holiday. I could ask for a friend to pick it up for me and let me know how I did, however that may feel a little distant having someone open them before me. My parents have suggested (and let me just say, I would feel a little weird doing this) hiring someone (i.e a courrier) to drop them up to us where we are staying on holiday. Also I was thinking maybe a teacher could email them to me? Or would that not be allowed? I suppose at the end of the day I could just wait, but then I wouldnt be finding them out until long after the actual results day. Im sorry for the long paragraph, this is just really upsetting me that I might have to find out after all of my friends have moved on with their summer, leaving me to dealing with the results myself. Haha, anyway, thanks for reading, and opinions are appreciated!

    Okay so you can't get a teacher to email you them but you can get them posted to a chosen address, my friend picked up my results for me last year as I was in Canada and it was fine, she just opened the envelope and sent me a picture. I honestly wouldn't worry about not finding out when everyone else does as they're a private thing anyway and most people don't go around saying what they got everyone just deals with them quietly, personally I would prefer to find out at a different time then no ones around you stressing which just elevates your anxieties. At the end of the day it's your choice but I'd suggest either getting a friend to pick them up for you or get them mailed to where you're staying or home and don't worry about not finding out with everyone else it really doesn't matter.
