    Hoping for AAAA I'm honestly not sure what to expect tbh, it really depends on how nice the mark schemes were.

    I will open them as anyone one would open an envelope, I will open them with the power of my mind.

    I don't have a clue how I will celebrate/react, haven't planned that far ahead :P

    You're at least the dozenth peep to crack that joke... :rolleyes: well, perhaps *where* will you (psychically) open that envelope, or perhaps your results are actually available online beforehand? That's what I was getting at.

    Hoping for: ACC (Media, Music Tech, Art)

    Expecting: BCC

    My issue is that I have an unconditional offer and my friend doesn't so If I get bad results I cant make a big deal or say anything, just in case she doesn't get what she wants/needs to get into uni :/ my plan is to open them discreetly, then be with my friend whilst she opens hers or wait for her to open hers before opening mine :P then I can celebrate with her when she opens them because I'm certain she's done amazingly

    Will react discreetly depending on what happens but we're going out for a meal to celebrate! nom nom nom

    Sorry couldn't resist, just ensuring that all variations of the joke were covered :P

    In all seriousness I'm probably going to go to college to get them and open them there with my friends.

    AS or A2 results? AS.

    What are you hoping for? In my dreams AAAA or along the lines of AABB, my target BBBB, my safety-net/minimum target BBCC or CCCC, so basically As, Bs and Cs, mainly Bs, I'd like to have.

    What are you expecting? BBCC tbh.

    How will you open them? Nervously and excitedly, in a little open space by myself, in a smooth and cautious manner with a bit of hope and moderated confidence.

    How will you celebrate / react?
    If it's all good, then probably a "Yes!", a smile, and chatting with friends about results, then ringing my mum, asking if she wants the good news now or later. If it's bad then just a deathly silence and a casual, subtle and awkward walking-away in shame, which shouldn't happen. :yy:Celebrations are an uncertain decision right now. Maybe I'll treat myself to some takeaway and chocolate of some sort. :dontknow: But hope it's all good.

    Probably just going to run to some quiet corner and open them myself, not give anything away with my reaction unless I've failed everything in which case I might faint.

    Will arrive from work, collect my results. Get into my car, open them, look at the bright side and then go back to work. Ah, the joys of farming.

    My school opens after track has updated so luckily I'll know whether I've got in or not before I get my results. This will then determine how I open my results!! Just want it to hurry now!

    I only need ABB, since I got the contextual offer. I'm sure you'll do fine 😃 grade boundaries should be low, hopefully
