    What are you hoping for?
    1 A*, 6As, 2Bs. Ain't gonna happen.
    What are you expecting?
    Couldn't say at all until they release the grade boundaries tbh, but I know I ****ed most of them up
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Depends on what I get.
    How will you open them?
    I'll go into school scared ****less to get them, then I'll take them home with me and open them slowly on the sofa.
    How will you celebrate/react?
    Depends. If it's alright I'll go to the supermarket and buy myself like 50 bars of dark chocolate(my favourite) if it's bad then knowing me I'll either have a depressive episode and try to do something to myself or have an involuntary Asperger's meltdown and start throwing random objects at the wall while shaking uncontrollably and probably crying - neither of which will be particularly fun

    What are you hoping for?
    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.
    By 'academic' are you referring to a grammar or public school or just a very renowned comprehensive ? Because they are really high entry grades! You just need 5 c's in anything to get into my school

    Public school, yeah. It's not the absolute top of the leaderboards or anything, but it's relatively high up there, which is why I still wonder how the absolute hell I got here, but I did?
    But yeah. I don't like to advertise it as I feel like I'm bragging.

    And I didn't realise that was that high of a requirement. I guess I'm so used to the school's ways that I forget what it's normally like!

    6A*s. 3A s 1 B

    What are you expecting?
    1A*. 3A s 5B s and 1C

    Yeah ..... The exams didn't go too well..... Teachers are going to kill me

    WILL I BE SATISFIED WITH MY RESULTS?
    No... Not even close I have worked soooooo hard for sooooo long.

    How will I open my results?
    I want to be alone - but my friends are being annoying about me not wanting to open them with them...

    How will I react?
    I will cry....they really are going to be bad. Especially as I really thought about ambitious careers in the future.

    Will I meet my 6th form offer?
    Possibly.....I hope so....
    I want to do maths/further , biology, chemistry

    Yeah that's alright I understand, you are lucky though because you will be recieving a better quality education, the fact that our school still accepts people that haven't achieved 5 a*-c ( bearing in mind this isn't inclusive of maths and English says a lot, and also at my school they will count a btec as a GCSE) personally I wish they were tougher !

    I'm hoping for 5 A*s, 6 A's and 1 B, but I'm expecting anything from 7A*s, 5As to 3A*s, 6A's and 3B's 😕 if the only B I get is in art then I will be content but if I get more than one I'll probably be a bit disappointed, I'm going to attempt to open my results away from anyone else bc I don't want other people questioning me

    I know; I am incredibly lucky. That's why I get so pissed when I hear people ***** about the school because I'm just thinking "Okay, you try going to your average state school and see how you fare there". Ah, well.
    You can still push yourself even with your school not pushing you; it's just harder. Good luck

    GCSE Results:

    What are you hoping for?
    8A*'s to A, would be my best case scenario the rest will probably be 1B and 2C's
    What are you expecting?
    At least 6A*'s to A. Then the rest B's and hopefully no more than 2C's

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    I feel like no matter what I get I'd still be somewhat disappointed because I know I can do better.

    How will you open them?
    In a secluded part of the school under the stairs.

    How will you celebrate / react?
    Celebration? I really don't know about this one. X) Tears of joy? I don't think any celebration will be in order.
    My reaction would just be tears, pure tears! Because most of the exams I've done, looking back now I'm sure I failed! ):

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I made a best case, worst case and realistic grade scenario. In all of them apart from ofc my worst case I made the offer so I'm not too worried about that.

    I think so.

    How will you open them?
    Probably by handing them over to my mum or something

    How will you celebrate / react?
    I don't really celebrate things but I might just stand around for a minute or two
    and then run home to scream

    What i'm dreaming for is...

    2 A*'s, 2 A's and a B

    What are you expecting?

    3 A's and 2 B's
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?

    Depending on what subjects I get the B's in. If I get a B in drama i'll be thrilled, i'm also expecting a B in biology. I'll be okay with that but I feel like for the most part my parents and teachers will be more disappointed than me. And the thought of disappointing my parents is the main reason for my fears

    How will you open them?

    I'm going to go with a few close friends then just quietly stand in a corner with them and open them together. I don't think I could handle someone else opening them for me.
    How will you celebrate / react?
    Spoiler:
    Show

    If I get any A*'s i'll probably just be really happy inside but play it cool. If I do okay - bad probably wait in the secluded grass area near school thinking about life while I wait for my friends to come out after telling our teachers their amazing results. I know my best friend will do amazing so we'll probably go celebrate her hard work. I'll also call my mum and tell her I got 5 A*'s then show her the truth when I get home (just for fun)

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    Going into year 11 in September so none of that stuff for another year. In my school we do GCSE's over 3 years so I guess i'm trying not to be too worried because I have another year to learn from my mistakes.

    That's when CIE results are published to schools/students. One of my results, IGCSE English language is CIE, but I still have to wait to get it with the rest of my results on the 20th

    I'm aware that only the teachers are sent it therefore it's unlikely unless it's leaked.

    What Im hoping for...

    Wake up in the morning feeling like p diddy, get dressed, slowly walk to school, arriving at the latest time possible to collect results (which is 11:30am). My friends waiting for me there, thinking what took you so long?! I go and get the envelope that basically encloses my current life and tear the seal. I take several minutes looking at my grades and the faces of my friends and my teachers... I do this around 3 times. I either: Scream and say YAY and run around or frown down and storm out of the hall thinking I failed at the first hurdle.
