    ]What are you hoping for?
    5A*'s, 6A's

    What are you expecting?
    2A*'s, 8A's, 1B. Oh that dreaded B.

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    No. I would love to have no B's and 3A*'s. I would be happy with that.

    How will you open them?
    I'm in Italy so will receive an email, which I will most likely open in the car and it will probably be a horrible time.
    How will you celebrate / react?
    If good, will say, 'They're alright' and nothing more. If bad, will be in an awful mood for days and will be the most horrible person you've ever met.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    Unless I have completely failed, yes

    I'm going for a grade in French, I was put on the higher tier due to my writing capabilities... which I claimed to be mine, but majority of my work which I submitted was actually Google Translate.
    Although, I'm not concerned about French too much, aiming for at least 7 A*s.

    Open it and skim the page as soon as I get it. Better pull the band-aid quickly rather than prolong it and if I cry, well.... at least, I'll have an excuse for failing my other ones.

    Yess, omg. My English teacher was marking my work in front of the whole class once, and she told me I need to change my handwriting before the exams start. But tbh I've seen people get like A*'s even though their handwriting is highly illegible.

    That happened to me as well. Except it was my spanish teacher. Hoping it won't matter. Although, thinking back over some of my exams, perhaps it is better if my writing was illegible!

    I'm hoping for my very best. I'm not sure what I got, I think I either did like my best (like 10A*'s and 3A's) or got what my sister got (5A*'s, 7A's and 1B) or did slightly worse (5A*'s, 6A's and 2B's). Tbh, I'd be happy with any of those grades. Those expectations are very high though, so maybe I'm just being too optimistic.

    I will literally rip open the packet and read my grades first for all the subjects and then re-read for the ums.

    I will celebrate with food because food makes me happy (I'm not fat I swear, I just like food). If I get those grades I will be able to meet my sixth offer, because I need 3A's (in Biology, Chemistry and Theatre studies) and 1B (In English Literature) and overall I need 5A*-C grades to get in. I'm slightly confident because in our mocks I got A*s in all 4 of the subjects, but I don't think I worked as hard for the real exam as I did for the mocks so fingers crossed. And I already have 2A*s from exams I did last year.

    I am hoping for 6A*s and 7As - reality is that I will probably get Cs and a few Bs thrown into the mix! (Or fail some). I would not be happy with them as I set high standards for myself and always have. I will open them far from anyone else to pull myself together when I tell my parents. I would probably cry either way it goes and then get drunk to drown my sorrows or celebrate! Yes I will get into college as they have low entry requirements of 5Cs and I already have an A* and 2As.
