    Yep, I probably will be up all night before results D:
    It has to be the worst feeling ever, knowing that practically your whole life has been geared up for that moment
    I'll be on TSR expressing my fears , using as an outlet for all my anxieties.
    Beauty sleep? Gosh, I'd need a hell of a lot of sleep to do miracles for myself! I'm guessing you must really be into looking your best

    I think I'll join the all nighter for as long as I can anyway. I hate the anxiety before results, and the day before it just gets pretty overwhelming. Ill just have to keep myself busy in the day and then join you and everyone with the outpouring of emotion at night haha it's going to be a very long night no matter what happens!

    I'm in Year 10 so my school said that they won't give me my results until September because "they want to focus on the Year 11s". I'm really unhappy about that. I sat 6 exams. I really want to find out what I got at the same time as everyone else
    I tried speaking to a couple of teachers but they all gave me the same answer

    9 days left! :eek:

    Also, good luck to those collecting their CIE results today!

    Thank you! I just checked my CIE results online for English Literature (A*, predicted B), English Language (A, predicted B) and History (A, predicted A), so I'm really happy!

    It was the same for me last year. Nothing you can do really, except forget about results and enjoy the rest of your summer!

    My son's waiting for his, he's in a bit of a spin about it.

    I remember getting mine (in 1989!) and being stunned, id failed every single one. I let it be the end of the world for a while. The i did an access course, then a BSc, then an MSc then chartered, which is the highest award there is professionally speaking. the point im making is they do not always dictate the rest of your life, they are just a small proportion of it. That said id be very happy if my son got a shed load of shiny A*s.

    They must differ from school to school because here are pictures of my Year 10 results sheet:Attachment 237430Attachment 237431Attachment 237432Attachment 237433.Sorry about the bad camera on my phone that made it hard to take one image showing everything on the page.I thought the exam boards made them but the school must make them if they are different from school to school.
    I have that sheet to but what I'm
    Showing is the actual certificate for the WJEC and AQA, not the school ones

    Yes you can and this is done in the League Tables to prove my point and 2 OCR Nationals Distinctions are fully equivalent to an A* and an A at GCSE. There are quite often changes to these equivalences with some very odd 4 GCSE subjects being officially degraded on the League Table points to just one GCSE.
    This sums it up:

    Plus, I don't know why you're so insistence on this topic. It really seems as if you're trying to frame me undermining BTECS...

    Which is not what I'm doing, I'm trying to get facts straight.

    What a-levels are you doing ?

    mate, don't compare your grades with TSR members, a majority of TSR members are like A*/A predicted, it can make you feel inferior even if you have 10 A*s!! lol

    It is very important- in the future it is believed that it will become the new main figure for League Tables and application to colleges to replace the incredibly inflating statistic of 5A*-Cs in English and Maths and 3 other subjects.So are you not eligible for this important statistic?I hope to get 16 A^/A*/A.
    It's not important. It's just a quick way for Ofsted to find out how well a school is performing.

    I don't qualify because I don't believe it's important and, when I emailed the Russell Group asking them if they required it for entry, they stated that only one of their universities required a language (UCL) and even then they weren't specifically requiring the EBacc. They even said that you could study a language whilst in university. It is, as you say, a statistic and not a qualification. Also, by colleges, do you mean universities, Sixth Forms or a college for vocational education?

    I intend to go into a design orientated background anyway so the fact that I chose Product Design and Systems & Control is, in my eyes, more appropriate than choosing say Product Design and Spanish. True, I do also plan on maybe doing something based on Law, but I've never read anything which suggests that you need a language to study Law providing you are studying it in the UK.

    Congratulations! Have you got the rest of your results next Thursday or were they the only GCSEs you did this year?
