    Maths: A*
    Additional Science: A*
    English Lit: A/B
    English Lang: A/B
    PWL: A/B
    PE: B

    What are you expecting?
    ICT: A*
    Maths: A
    Additional Science: A
    English Lit: B
    English Lang: B
    PWL: B
    PE: C

    Fairly satisfied. I would be a little bit disappointed by an A in Additional Science considering the amount of extra work I put into that subject for the A*.


    How will you open them?
    Not sure. Right now I'd say as quickly as possible (I've waited long enough :P), but we'll see when I actually get them.


    How will you celebrate / react?
    Not sure.


    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    Yeah, I'm confident I will. I've already got a B in Science.

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

    What are you hoping for?
    2 A*s, 4 As, 4 Bs and a Distinction.
    What are you expecting?
    1 A*, 2 As, 5 Bs and 2 Cs (or a C and D), and a Merit.
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    No.
    How will you open them?
    I won't. My mother has been asking me if she could open them for me months in advance, so… :|
    How will you react?
    A lot of tears will be shed either way.
    How will you celebrate?
    By getting some sleep.
    Will you meet your college/sixth form offer?
    I hope so.

    What are you hoping for?
    4A* 5A 1B
    What are you expecting?3A* 6A 1C

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    So long as I get at least a C in maths, I'll be fine. If I get all B's (hopefully my worst case scenario) I'm be disapointed, but B's aren't too bad.

    How will you open them?
    Standing next to my Mum, who will be warding off teachers until I've had my moment opening them. I might talk to friends if I see them, but if not I'll be going straight off to college enrolment.

    How will you celebrate / react?
    Probably go quiet and either be grinning or just shrug it off and hope for better with A Levels. Inside I'll either be shouting a lot of screaming - hopefully the latter.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    I need 5 C/B grades, so yes, I should get more than enough to meet the offer.

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    - Not really, I could have done a lot better if I had revised earlier, maybe got more A*s and As

    How will you open them?
    - In school, as soon as I get them and probably read them as I walk outside. Will glance over the grades first then look at individual subjects.
    How will you celebrate / react?
    - If I do better than I expect I will be really happy and jump up and down probably going shopping on Friday with friends.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    - I really hope so, I pretty much just need a high B in English Language to study English Lit and B in French to study it and I've getting in. As long as I get around 16, although preferably over 18 points, then I'm good.

    ME:

    What are you hoping for?

    - 5 A*'s, 2 A's, 2 B's and 2 C's

    What are you expecting?

    - 3 A*'s, 2 A's, 2 B's, 4 C's

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?

    - No. Purely because of the subjects that will have achieved the C's and B's.

    How will you open them?

    - Me and my best friend are going to open each others first then pass them over once they've been read.

    How will you celebrate / react?

    - Probably be really upset but just happy that I got my grades to get into my sixth form. Which I know I will... without a doubt.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    - YES. Already have 3 of the 5 grades necessary.
    Re-taking maths for the 3rd time at college!! D: I want a C but I'm expecting a D or an E. Probably open it up alone in my room xD If I don't pass I'll be really bummed, I worked so hard this year.

    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
    Means you've probably got straight A*s.
