    How I'll open them - if track does not update before my school opens, I'll run in at 9am, be the first to grab them and as I usually do, tear the envelope to pieces trying to get at the damned letters.
    How I'll react - if I've got into my firm, I'll be doing cartwheels out of the school and will ring everyone, maybe go to a friends' BBQ. If I fail, then I'll cry my eyeballs out at the thought of a gap year and having to do the UKCAT again.

    What are you hoping for? AABB

    What are you expecting? AACC

    How will you open them? Hand the envelope to my parents then run away for safety purposes.

    How will you celebrate / react? I'll probably act indifferent either way while at school then go home and cry myself to sleep.

    (I'm in a strange situation, which explains the A2/AS mix)...


    I'll open them on my own somewhere. If they're good, I'll cry, and if they're bad, I'll cry.

    Hoping for: A*A*A

    Expecting: A*AA

    I will open them:
    I told my mates I'd chug 10 red bulls before opening my results, just for the bants, and I'll be opening them in college, or in front of a camera so I can record my reaction, because if I get either my expected or hoped for results, it'd be absolutely insane, so I'm not afraid of doing so bad that I'm upset or don't want people to see.

    I will react
    : I'll probably be bouncing off the flippin' walls because of all that redbull, and just generally being really hyped and happy, also, if I get A*A*A, I'll probably try calling up Imperial to see if they have an adjustment place in Computer Science, but if they don't, I'll just hang up and continue being pumped over this results shiet, because going to durham for comp sci is still HUUUUUGEEEE.
    Heard a lot about Comp Sci when I went to visit Durham the other week!

    Enjoy all that red bull Who'll be filming?

    Mine are AS too. Will you actually leave your parents to open them?

    Track to see if I actually get in, collect them in school not caring (in the case I'm accepted), crying into school if I don't get accepted.

    Crying out of happiness/sadness

    Ahh right, hope it goes well. I'm in a similar position:

    Hoping to get: AAAAA
    Expecting to get: AAAAB

    But, as you say, it's the UMS that counts...

    That amount of redbull could kill you. I wouldn't.

    Hoping for AAA because I really want to study Human Sciences at UCL.
    Probably expecting : ABB( or WORSE!:eek:) Im trying to be optimistic but I know I flopped my exams.
    I will probably cry first, pray, and then open the letter.
    I don't know how I will react or celebrate until I know my results, I will probably go on a massive shopping spree if I do well. However, I can guarantee that more tears will be shed.

    Hoping for at least AAA as those are my entry requirements, but ideally with an A* somewhere. I'm expecting AAA though, although in really bad moments I'm thinking AAB or ABB :puke: Realistically I did well enough at AS and my coursework this year that it should be easy enough to get my uni grades but I'm not so sure...

    I can get my results online thankfully at 6.30am. So I will be awake all night panicking, updating track and my results page every five minutes even at like 2am, until I finally find out. Then I'll either be ringing universities, or going back to sleep. Also going to a gig that evening so that's sort of like a celebration/ignoring my problems event

    I'm more of a traditionalist (i.e. Go into school to open results and hug teachers)

    How will you celebrate / react?
    If below A*AAA -
    disappointed. Felt sufficient preparation was given.
    I am taking a gap year, so I don't want to start potentially one of the best experiences of my life on a bummer.

    Impressive. Where are you from: is this why you can only get them online?

    Currently working in my EPQ at the moment. So is your A* in it part of a Uni offer or have you just taken 2 A levels as a challenge for yourself?
