    I've been asked by my school to open them on television. I'm hoping that they'll let me open them myself beforehand then I can just pretend for the camera that I've never seen them! Though, it's only on Channel 5 so I doubt that anybody will actually be watching it

    A's and B's, a C and/or a D in history

    Nope

    I'll probably grab my results and open them at home in the corner of my garden
    How will you celebrate / react?
    RELIEF if I am able to study my subjects at A level. Maybe go out for dinner with my family?

    What I expect:

    Drama: A (would love an A* but doubt it)
    English Lang: A* (hopefully)
    Lit: A
    Media: B
    German: A
    History: B
    Free Standing Maths: C
    Science: A

    No idea how I'm going to open it. It'll take me a good 20 minutes to get the courage to do it anyway.

    Having a meal BEFORE results to celebrate - our last supper

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll get into sixth form though.

    What are you hoping for?
    3 A*s, 4 As and a C but that's totally unrealistic
    What are you expecting?
    2 As, 2 Bs, 3 Cs and a D
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Not really, no, because I wont get into sixth form. My exams were horrendous which is disappointing considering how much effort I've put in the past two years and how well I did in my mocks.
    How will you open them?
    I'll go home to do so. I'll probably wait a while and drink too much orange juice or something.
    How will you celebrate / react?
    Depends on how they go. I'll be very happy if I'm into my desired sixth form, but a little disappointed in myself if not. If I get anything like my "hoping for" I'll probably cry with joy for years.
    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I doubt it, to be quite honest, but I'm keeping the faith. I need an average of a B. Who knows. Could be who knows etc etc GCSE music blah.

    What are you hoping for? - "Anything that will get me into Dental School" - Basically all A*s, but that wont happen
    What are you expecting? - Pessimistically, 2As and the rest Bs. Optimistically, 2 Bs and the rest As
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation? - No. Probably won't ever be

    How will you open them? Not sure, probably by a tree or something

    How will you celebrate / react? Immediately: Rip up the results sheet Joking, if I don't get any B's I'll be over the moon. If I messed up, basically I'll stay at my little tree for a while and probably cry Afterwards: Meeting up with friends all in my year group from other schools for bowling and lunch out. Ooh, and a party this weekend with my family (that's more for my sister with her A levels though..)
    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer? Already have, ish. Even if I don't get 6 Bs, I'll still get in as people last year didn't make the grades but still got in.

    I will be. Haha probably not actually if you're going in at 9-ish because I won't be home - but that's still pretty cool... But I'd be really scared to do that!

    GCSE Results:

    What are you hoping for?
    Maths - A* (100% )
    FSMQ - A
    English Lit - A/B
    English lang - A*/A
    Biology - A/B
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - A*/A
    Geography - A*
    History - A*
    French - A* (100% UMS in listening and reading)
    Music - A

    6 A* 3 A 1 B (+ A in FSMQ)

    What are you expecting?
    Maths - A*
    FSMQ - A/B
    English Lit - B/C
    English lang - A/B
    Biology - A/B (grade boundaries are kinder than I thought)
    Chemistry - A*/A
    Physics - A/ B
    Geography - A* (also kind grade boundaries)
    History - A (thank God for controlled assessment)
    French - A*
    Music - B/C (dear God I did badly in listening compared to the grade boundaries)

    3.5 A* 2.5 A 2 B 0.5 C (+ A* in Spanish from Year 9 and B in RS from Year 10)

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    As long as I get an A not a B in Physics I'm happy enough (although C in Music will upset me a tad)

    How will you open them?
    Probably walk to a corner of the hall (shaking from anxiety), open them and then (ngl) get upset if I've got less than I expect. A lot of my peers expect me to do really well and social anxiety dictates that I will feel well, anxious around them if I don't

    How will you celebrate / react?
    I'm going to pick up my brother from France. He's just turned 12 and I haven't seen him in 6 months bc he's living there to learn French

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I expect so (A* in Maths, A in Chemistry and Physics, B in English with a B average)

    Wow I wouldn't agree to that. Surely you can open them privately first and then fake it for the cameras?

    What are you hoping for?

    I'm hoping for straight A*s of course (In my dreams lol)! I'm hoping for 100 UMS in Spanish. I also really want an A* in maths because I was 1 mark off in the mock.

    What are you expecting?

    A*/A majority - I got all A*s apart from maths (A) in my mocks, so I guess I'm expecting a repeat of that but with a couple more As.

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?

    I doubt it - I'm never happy with what I get in anything. (Blaming my dad for this one)


    How will you open them?

    Pass the envelope to my mother.

    How will you celebrate / react?

    I will probably jump on someone and give them a big hug/cry. Then I'm going out to eat TWICE and going to the seaside!

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    I imagine so. I already have 1 A*, so I just need to get 4 b's and I will be in.

    I would totally do this, but my damn braces would probably get stuck in the thing.
