    When my sister got hers, everyone stood in a queue and they handed out the envelope to each individual. Also happened to my friend who received hers last week! I think it's mean if they read them out, and tbh, they probably won't, and they may already know how everyone's done anyway!

    Good Luck
    Thank you and good luck!

    Same here, I thought the science grade boundaries would be high, I hope the examiners did not mark it harshly

    They prob did mark the papers harshly but in spite of that, we just gotta hope for the best. I hope you get the grades you wanted and I'm sure u will be fine

    Who is going to be opening results by themselves in a corner somewhere, and who's going to open them with friends or with lots of people nearby??
    Definitely opening by myself in a corner, need to be alone to understand all the jumbled up letters and numbers haha

    If they're good I'll stay for a bit but probably not tell many people I know what I got, if they're bad I'll just go straight home:rolleyes: you?

    GCSE RESULTS DAY 2013

    Here, we can discuss results day - our excitement, nerves, predictions and overall grades on the day!

    • When is results day? Thursday 22nd August
    • I'm scared about my friends asking me what I got, what shall I do? Don't open your results in front of them. If you do, pull the :ninja: face
    • I didn't do as well as I thought, what shall I do? You have a couple of options here. First think about the subject, if it was a Maths/Science it is unlikely to be marked wrong (though it does happen). If it is an English/essay based, you may want to consider a remark. You also have the option of resitting.


    "TSR and the real world is different. In the TSR world if you achieve anything less than 56 A*'s you are a failure."

    Don't compare your grades with TSR users, please. Just don't.



    Funny story:
    Last year I went on holiday during results day. So I checked my Geography Edexcel result online at 6AM (America time) and read a big "F" - freaked out then went back to sleep. Didn't even tell my parents what it was. Came back to England, realised the "F" stood for "Female" and I actually got an A*

    in did exactly this last year! had a complete freak out and my physics teacher was like 'it stands for female anabelle'! never laughed so much in my life!

    Guys, I was talking to my friend about results yesterday and there was something we're not sure about...
    I don't know if this varies for different exam boards, but we're doing WJEC. So, if in January you had a grade, which you decided to resit in May, would it be the highest grade that stands or the most recent? For example, in January I got a B so I resat it, but say (worst case scenario) I did worse this time round, would they count my most recent worse grade or my B from January?

    Phone won't do it, I want to see what UMS my art coursework is, and then what I'd need for the exam for an A overall.

    Thank you . How did you find the exam and did you receive your coursework marks? Also what do you think you'll get overall?
    The exam was okay. I got my actual marks whereas my friend got an overall percentage so I guess it depends on the school. We hope for an A*. What about you?
