    What are you expecting? 5A* 3A 1B

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation? While I'll be fine with them, if I then can't get into my chosen sixth form I'll be upset.

    How will you open them? School are posting our results online at 8am so I'll look then and go into school if I want go.

    How will you celebrate / react? Going to Reading Festival afterwards

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer? Probably not- I need to get 6A* minimum.

    In my school maybe 1/2 will achieve like 7+ A*s, that's what I'm personally hoping for too if I'm honest.
    Perhaps people are lying, it is the internet after all though and you must be pretty sad to lie to strangers about grades
    I don't know about others, but when I revise I just revise to be fully prepared, I would see no point revising if I didn't revise to a potentially A* standard. There's no difference between A* standard and being prepared I think.

    Well good luck! I guess some people are just naturally gifted everything. Like for me, I can honestly say when I did my maths exam in november I can honestly say i did no revision at all (although to be fair our maths teacher is amazing). Plus me and my friends were on GTA until around midnight-1am the day before the exam yet when our came to January our class had 19 A*s and 11 As.

    My point is that there will always be a few select subjects that people will excel at for no reason, with or without effort, but I couldn't find the time to revise for 7+ A*s no matter how hard I tried. I remember working my butt of for my history and geography coursework and all somehow only scraping a C :/ although luckily I the exams went well for me... I hope

    Thanks, you too! I get what you mean about naturally excelling. However when you say revise for an A*, when you revise do you purposefully revise for a target grade or I don't see how that works if you know you don't have "time" to revise it to A* would you just like leave some material out or how would you do that? Go into less detail?

    What are you hoping for?
    I am hoping for all A*s with an A^ in Further Maths and maybe an A in History and Media
    What are you expecting?
    Probably as above but with more As
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    I think so! As long as I get my B in Chemistry and Physics and 7 C-A*s I can get into my 6th form.
    How will you open them?
    I will grab the envelope and run and hide in a corner. Then rip it open and pray that is ok. My mum will be there with me though
    How will you celebrate / react?
    Going to the local coffee shop for cake and hot chocolate (with marshmallows, of course!)
    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    As I said above, I just need a B in Physics and Chemistry and 7 C-A*s as I took my Maths in November (A*)

    7+A*s rest As

    What are you expecting?
    Hmm not sure maybe 5A*s 5As and 2Bs? Don't even remember the exams

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Eh ill be alright although I really want more than half of my grade to be A*s :/

    How will you open them?
    I will collect the results and go somewhere less crowded with my dad and open them slowly and then tell him.

    How will you celebrate / react?
    Hmm if I get over half A*s I'll be really happy and we'll go out for a meal (: that being said I told my parents I did badly so they're not expecting much ;D

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    Definitely even tho I go to a grammar school we only need 6A*s-Cs so I could fail half my subjects and still get it. Whether I get an A in geography though is the question.

    What are you hoping for? A*s in Maths (already got), English Language, English Lit, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, History and RE and then an A in Drama, plus an A in AS Level Maths

    What are you expecting? A*s in Maths (already got), English Language, English Lit, Chemistry and French. As in Biology, Physics, History and RE. A B in Drama, and then my A in AS Level Maths

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation? Yes, but I would want better, as I believe I've worked hard. If I get As in History, RE and Drama, I wouldn't really care, but if I got As in Biology and Physics, I'd be slightly disappointed - it's just personal expectation really.

    How will you open them?
    I'm planning to go into a corner where there is nobody, so I don't have teachers come up to me and ruin the moment, and open them alone, where there isn't anybody watching over me.

    How will you celebrate / react? If I do well, I'll just be so happy, I'd end up walking into a car. If I do badly, I'd still end up walking into a car, aha.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer? Yeah, definitely. There's no way I'm not going to meet that.
