    Why does everyone keep saying 7:30? Isn't track updating at 8:00 or later even. Like the grade boundaries were meant to be out at midnight and they came at like 00:30...
    Because normally track opens about 7:30 but they say 8 because that's the latest it will be.

    Lucky!!!
    We have to go in, sit down endure 15 minutes of speaches from the head ect. Check in the hall and then tell the school where we are going next year. So I have no option but to stick around.
    Ha, it's mainly because there are only about four teachers who come in on results day because most of mine live two or more hours away (rural school) so all of them are on the desk with the slips, hand them to people and that's it.

    anyone got any experience with maths/physics remarks - I am super scared the paper will be marked awfully and I'll miss my uni place - does this happen often for the sciencey(less subjective) subjects?

    Wait, people have actual results days like in GCSE? Ours is just check up online, so the second I wake up next, I grab my phone and get closure finally.
    Most exam boards have no online access for results in terms of pupil access, the majority of us have to collect them like the peasants in GCSE.

    A lot of schools will manually put the grades on their college/school portals for students to log in and see them, this is becoming more common now. I think actually going into get them is so stressful.

    Ahh I see, my school's website is absolutely abysmal and out dated so that's probably why they don't do it.

    Hopefully you won't. Hard work pays off so if we really put the work in should get the grades to prove it.

    I'm gonna be honest I feel the same. Seeing mark schemes doesn't help me. Because all I remember after that is all I got wrong. Lowering my expectations.

    Good fortune upon all tomorrow, and just remember how inconsequential these results are in the grand scheme of life. They will NOT define you as a person.

    Awww bless you sweetie, don't worry it will go okay! Don't stress out, if you're tired put your phone down and get some sleep! You need rest for tomorrow, I got my alevel results like two years ago, I remember the day before nerves like it was yesterday.

    I promise you're only stressing yourself out, take tonight easy, listen to some calming music and let tomorrow be! <3
