    I will probably not use anything fancy like a knife, I will just use my hands to open my results

    What are you hoping for? 7a*'s 1a and 1b

    What are you expecting?6/5a*'s 1a 1b and 1c
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation? mostly, will be a little annoyed if i miss an a* where i could of potentially gained one

    How will you open them? on my own, possibly go for a walk to another floor where it is private

    How will you celebrate / react? no clue, i did my literature gcse a year early and cried when i got an a* so to avoid embarrassment i shall open them elsewhere. Also i don't want to appear to be 'showing off' if i do well

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer? only need 5 c's for my 6th form so yes i will

    What are you hoping for?
    Maths - A or B
    English Lang. - B
    English Lit. - B
    Science - C (I taught myself the WHOLE lot because our class was terrible)
    Law - A or B
    Psychology - C (Been C/D for 2 years and it's been the worst subject ever)
    ICT - A*
    Computer Science - A*

    What are you expecting? (After my traumatic experience before the exams... if I take into account the special considerations..)
    Maths - B (Potentially A IF the grade boundries are lowered. I've always hovered between 110-130.
    English Lang. - B (And that's me being super nice)
    English Lit. - B (Again, being super nice)
    Science - E (I can't... no don't even go there)
    Law - B (Really happy with this)
    Psychology - D (Always been hopping around the 55%-65% on the papers for mocks)
    ICT - A/A* (Coursework wasn't my best but I got 100% on my mock so it looks positive as the exam was easier)
    Computer Science - A or B (The exam literally killed the whole class)

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Partially.

    How will you open them?
    One of three options:

    1) My maths teacher has been the MOST supportive out of anyone this year (even compared with family). I'll probably let her open them first and look.

    2) Open them myself slowly and try and read the results through the envelope (like I did with statistics. I didn't enjoy that experience though).

    3) Tear the thing open and then fall to the floor if I don't get 344 points.
    How will you celebrate / react?
    Positive? I'm not showing my happiness, only to certain individuals. My experience at my school has been disgusting.
    Negative? I'll probably go up to my old maths class and just sit there for a few minutes to take it in.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    I need 344 to get into this grammar school but they also ask for 2As and 4Bs as a baseline too.

    I don't get the point of letting somebody else see your results first.

    RE - A
    English Lit - A*
    English Language - A*
    History - B
    Maths - A*
    Additional Science - A*
    Further Science - A*

    What are you expecting?
    5A*s, 4As 1C

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Not with the C but the rest is alright

    How will you open them?
    I'll probably open them in the hall even though that's where everyone will be

    How will you celebrate / react?
    If I'm not satisfied I'll most likely hide my reaction so pretend that everything's cool and if they're I'll obvs jump around screaming. Sad as it sounds I plan to have someone record my reaction.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    Yes; although if I don't get at least an A in Maths I'll have to drop it

    4 A*, 2A, 2B, 1C

    What are you expecting?
    3A*, 2A, 3B, 2C

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Yeah, will be kinda disappointed with the C's but i found the subjects hard and done my best so what can you do

    How will you open them?
    I'll probably open them with my friendship group

    How will you celebrate / react?
    If I get what I want I'll be over the moon and won't be able to contain my happiness.
    If they're bad I'll probs just go home alone and then cry.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    Hopefully, I get what I'm predicted i should be able to do the subjects i want to at A level.

    10 A*'s, 3 A's, 1 B (Already have 1 A*, 1 A and 1 B, 13 in total

    What are you expecting?
    8 A*'s, 5 A's, 1 B

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    If it's lower than 9, probably not.

    How will you open them?
    At home on my PC. If their good, I'll go collect my result from school.

    How will you celebrate / react?
    Depends on results, but will probably be calm regardless.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    Of course.

    Straight A*s. Yep, I'm THAT person. *sighs*

    What are you expecting?
    Not straight A*s.

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Unless it is straight A*s, nope. Even if it is, I'll probably just think I got lucky and dismiss it, though.

    How will you open them?
    I don't even KNOW. How I'm going to be ABLE to even open them is beyond me.

    How will you celebrate / react?
    Probably hyperventilate and cry. A lot. Goody.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I feel arrogant saying this, but yes. The requirement (and this is an academic school, so I'm still kind of surprised, but ah well) is 8 A*-Bs, I believe, which I'd like to think I can get, considering my prediction. But hell, who knows. I can imagine myself not doing well enough, absolutely. My only consolation is that I know I have 1 A* already.

    Hoping for 5 A grades and 5 B grades at least. Ideally some A* grades.
    I'm probably going to open them on my own, cry, read the results, cry again regardless and then decide if I can safely come home to parents with the results.
