    Well the jan and nov exams u just get given ur results, but in the summer you get ur results in an envelope. Theres only ever one teacher dishing them out so theres usually an enormous queue of GCSE, AS and a-level students waiting. Its weird coz were all packed into a tiny canteen and theres people queuing, people ring their mummies and daddies, people celebrating and others balling their eyes out. One girl last year was screaming she hadnt got in though, only to realise theyd given her the wrong envelope. She didnt realise they were the wrong subjects. Hilarious.

    wait a minute are yours in envelopes? thats so unfair last year for the a's results we were sat down infront of a random teacher and they got your slip out and kinda told you them!!! they would then sit there and watch our reactions, i hated it. its so unfair doing that though because you just think there my results why should i have to open them with a random teacher in front of everyone in the hall!!! plus i was embarrassed because i ended up in floods of tears soooo bad but over now
    oh god now im dreading it this year... thats it not going in i'll stay at home under the covers for ever!!!!
    :eek: You don't even get envelopes?! How harsh is that! Our school puts them in envelopes for us (obv all the teachers know our results), but you can just grab the envelope, scurry off, and open it elsewhere (much like I did! )

    The worst part is the geniuses who hang around. We had one girl who got all A*'s at GCSE and had the highest geog mark in da country. It was sad because she wanted to come to Durham, castle, but she was pressurised to go 2 cambridge from our school. I got 5 A*'s and didnt even get in the top 10 at my school at GCSE. But im not well rounded, i was rubbish at languages!and chem-didnt like that.

    so are u people doin anything after the results?

    Probably the usual idea of off down one of the wetherspoons. My group is a big fan of the 'vanilla ice' cocktail......basically alcoholic chocolate milk.

    and we're all going Ibiza in september which should be fun. well i think at least 14 of us are. soooooooo excited!

    My school would place all the results as they came off the secured intranet from the exam boards up on the large noticeboard on the outside of the gym, where they would remain for a year. This meant that you knew your results about 3 minutes after the board released them, but also that everyone else knew them 3 minutes after the board released them.

    Officially the reason was that every minute spent typing out individual results slips was a minute somebody else took a place you wanted if you were going through clearing, but it was reckoned that they were just being cruel.

    They did the same for GCSEs, and AS / Modular exams as well.

    Our exam officer would hand us the envelopes, but he would know what you had, and really enjoyed watching us open them!

    at our college there were a load of tables in the main hall, each one for the first letter of one's surname. the person at the table would give you your results, i guess they must read them, cos she said congratulations to me! i feel that my sixth form was one of the best in the country (it came top in many league tables this year) but there is so much support on results day, its really reassuring. sorry, i'll stop kissing the arse of my college now!
