    Thank you

    Oh gosh... Do you think some track might update over the weekend? Or is August the 18th the earliest?
    I don't.. think so. Track freezes until the morning of results day.

    Your school has to send off for the certificates and they will arrive at a later date.

    That's insane! My twin brother and I go to different schools and my mum is a single mum... If both our schools had this policy, we'd be screwed.

    You get a results sheet with all of your results on it. The certificates, as above, arrive at a later date and you have the fun of finding time to go back to school, engage in some slightly awkward conversations and then leave. While nice to have, I've never had a use for my A-level certificates. It'll probably be one of those things that I find in a box in an attic in 20-30 years.

    Most exam boards send their results directly to UCAS and so your grades will be avaliable for universities in clearing to see.

    Haha thank you, for that very reason I feel like I can't go in to face everyone from my school who for certain would be there will all A's, it seems all to awkward. I might just get them emailed to me That's probably true

    I put 0 thought into it until results day, where I decided to sneak a peek at track and found out that I met my firm, so my results can't have been too bad and that kept me kind of calm on the way to school. However I appreciate that if track showed I had not met either of my offers then it would've had the opposite affect :hide:

    They are already in university. They were talking about their A level results day which has already happened.
