    Ahh what makes you most nervous about it? How they'll feel or how it will affect them?
    Oh, both. It's hard to watch and wait to see if their hopes and dreams are going to go up in smoke. However, that's also quite a way in the past and they both did fine.

    Stage one
    I was pleased i'd managed to even finish the last few as one of my grandparents had been terminally ill that year and ended up in the icu in the middle of my exam, so i guess i had a sense of accomplishment.

    Stage two
    I was still glad they were over and coming to realise that with my calculations I might not even pass two a levels and hoped i d have gotten an A in business so i d have one decent a level.

    Stage three
    I was getting a bit fed up.

    Stage four
    Nervous as i knew i had probably done the worst out of my friends ( i was one of the worse it turns out but it ended up not mattering)

    Stage five
    Fear

    Stage six
    I was looking up foundation years and clearing vacancies.

    Thank you. It is very hard to see your own kids suffering in any way and you wish you could bear it for them, but everyone has to make their own way in life. I've no doubt your parents feel the same about you, although I'm sure they have no need to worry.

    Anyone else start getting dreams about your results a few days before results day? So even at night you're not safe

    Or get very superstitious? Like "I can't walk under that ladder or it'll jinx my grades"

    I didn't mean it to - probably phrased it wrong. I mean that they will be hoping everything goes well for you, even if they aren't saying so.
