    Anyone else feel that they are going to be majorly disappointed on results day? There's so many factors that could go wrong, examiners missing out questions, examiners in a bad mood, not being able to read handwriting, not saying the correct word that was needed for the mark. Damn, I'm getting stressed out while typing this.

    Sorry if I just increase you guys' worry by like 20X lol.
    I feel like that myself. I don't wanna get my hopes up for results day in case I do really bad or the above

    I know you didn't ask me but I'm so lonely and I want to post :^)

    I'm pretty sure my parents, teachers and friends are going to force me to open them at school haha

    Well it depends how patient I am when it comes to the day but probably at school so if I need to, I can discuss with teachers any problems. It really is like a support group, couldn't have got by the last week without it

    I'm sure my teachers will force me to open mine too but I don't really like any of them enough to open it for them. That sounds a bit cold but that's the honest truth. I will end up probably opening it alone and see how it goes. It is so much easier to talk to people that get it you know? Plus, my friends are all on holiday so I'm alone on this one

    Just think about it positively and it will help make you feel more calm. And I have hideous handwriting and I'm pretty sure that examiners hate me 😂😂

    Yeah, it's not worth showing teachers you don't like. I know how you feel about all your friends being on holiday, all mine are on this NCS thing so no one has time for me. This site is perfect tbh. It is great to see others in the position as my real life friends just don't care about results day

    I couldn't say it better myself. It's not that I don't care, because I do (a lot) as pretty much everyone else does, but I just don't feel any emotion whatsoever. Not excited, not nervous. Weird times fam

    Is it weird to be more worried about speaking to other people on Results Day at school than what the actual results are?

    I have an A* in AQA Music already and I was predicted 12 more A*s this year by my teachers... It's kinda terrifying having so much pressure on, and I know I'll be really annoyed with myself if I get a single A (which is stupid because it doesn't even matter, but perfectionism is a *****), but I worked hard and felt like the exams went really well so I'm not THAT worried. But the idea of all the teachers and other students asking me what I got and possible photos and lack of privacy and stuff makes me so anxious, I hate it.

    Am I the only one?
    I don't think it is. For my A-Level Results, I just picked up my results and ran out without even opening them so that I didn't have to speak to anyone else.

    ISA: 100 UMS

    C1: 52/60
    C2: 52/60
    C3: 50/60
    ISA: 100 UMS

    P1: 49/60

    I will be so glad when this day is over
    Everyone asks me how I think I've done, how worried I am, how I'm going to collect my results.. The attention is nice, but it gets incredibly draining and annoying. At work everyone thought I had A level results day and asked how I did, which again I appreciate but it's just tiring correcting everyone and telling the same stories about GCSE and what I want to do at A level. Results day is tiring me out so much!

    All my friends either aren't coming in for the day or are away, I've been having consistent anxiety dreams about results day- either worst-case-scenarios, or general atypical anxiety dreams- and I feel like I'll be disappointed even if I get my target grades because I didn't get all of the highest grades.

    I did edexcel German too! I found the reading okay ish but the listening was much harder. Definitely the hardest papers I've done though! I hope the grade boundaries are low
    Thank god it wasn't just me that found them hard. I didn't get a chance to discuss them with anyone because I sat them back to back with another exam (computer science) and I thought it was just me because I hadn't revised as much as I had for Spanish

    Does anyone know when the grade boundaries are released, specifically AQA but Edexcel and OCR would be helpful?
