    GCSE Results:

    What are you hoping for?

    I was predicted 9.5A*s and 1 A but I'd be over the moon with 8A*s and 2.5As

    What are you expecting?

    6A*s, 3.5As and 1 B

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?

    Not really I want to do medicine but I'd be pushing it with only 6A*s.

    How will you open them?

    In school, feeling completely sick with nerves...I'd rather do it at home by myself in case I'm really disappointed but we have to enrol at our sixth form at the same time so I can't hehe.

    How will you celebrate / react?

    I'll just be incredibly relieved going to an Imagine Dragons concert the day after and my birthday is the day before so I'll be in a good mood either way

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    Definitely. You need 14 points to get back in my sixth form, I have 1A* already which is four points so I'm pretty confident
    OMG I HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY AS YOU!

    Ahh another student who has aspirations of doing Medicine, GCSEs aren't heavily looked upon by Universities, its always a bonus to have an A* in Chemistry and Biology. Although if you don't, it won't sabotage your chances of doing the course. What subjects are you planning on pursuing at A level?

    P.S
    Imagine Dragons are amazing, haha.

    In a toilet cubicle which is a reasonable distance away from the hall where results are handed out. I have little expression of emotions about results (never been elated with results as such) but I have a feeling that I will be disappointed. No idea how quickly I will open the envelope but once I am sitting there staring at it, the nerves should get to me

    I'm not complaining aha, you answered everything, I just never get people who cry over getting a couple of B's but all A's and A*'s beside them B's.
    I think B grades are good, but i want Medicine so of course im gonna have to get the majority As

    I really want to do early and early modern history instead of modern history... it's so political and kind-of boring.

    How will you open them?
    In a quiet corner of the school hall (unlikely, it'll probably be far too noisy and packed) or on the school field (which should be empty so I can have alone time)

    How will you celebrate / react?
    This definitely depends on the grades... If I've got what I wanted/close I might go on some sort of impromptu outing maybe with friends. If not I will probably go home and cry in my room on TSR for a while... I'm planning on going in on the train so that I'm not too stressed by parents.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I seriously hope so, it will have gone pretty disastrously if I don't.

    What I was hoping for before : 7 A*s 3As

    What I now expect: 3A*s 6 As 1B

    Will I be happy with my expectation: I will be disappointed with the lack of A*s and cry at the B

    How I will open them: carefully peel the seal away in a private corner and hope not to go into anaphylactic shock.

    How I will react: unless it's somehow all A*s , keep a pretty straight face.

    Will I meet my sixthform offer: yeah it's 6 A/A*s

    That's reassuring to hear, thank you I'm confident about an A* in biology! maybe not chemistry though bc I thought paper 1 was really easy but I missed out an entire 15 marker in paper two (my mistake, accidentally skipped through a page on the spec so didn't revise that part whoops)...not good
    Planning on bio, chemistry, maths & French at AS

    Yay, Imagine Dragons certainly are amazing!

    Hoping for 7 A*s, 5As and a B!

    What are you expecting?
    I'm expecting 6 A*s, 6 As and a B Hopefully haha I think I did alright in my exams (touch wood)

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    I'd be over the moon if I get at least 1 A* and the rest As and Bs So I'd be extremely happy if my expectations were correct!

    How will you open them?
    I've been selected to be possibly filmed whilst opening them by my school but I'd rather go to the changing rooms and open them alone..
    How will you celebrate / react?
    If I do well I'd go to parties with friends and out for a meal with my mum and her boyfriend. If I do badly I'd probably go training and release some energy and then sleep..

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I need to get 3 Bs and 4 Cs to get into sixth form so I think I'll be fine

    Hope everyone gets the grades they want, being on this website the past few months you can see the amount of work everyone has put into these exams so lets hope that translates into great grades
