    AS or A2 results?

    A2, basically my existence depends upon them.

    What are you hoping for?

    A*AA (it's my firm's entry requirements)

    What are you expecting?

    A*AA or AAA - both probably as equally likely as each other. I'm holding on to a hope that there will be spaces available for AAA students come results day also.

    How will you open them?

    Probably by refreshing my UCAS/College website for the thousandth time.

    How will you celebrate / react?

    If I succeed: drink. If I do not succeed: drink.

    AS results.

    Considering I know I have messed up this year I'm hoping I get above Ds.. :/ BCDD

    Expecting BEUU

    I will get my envelope, walk down to the bus stop, get on the bus, go home and open them. then cry.

    If I get BEUU I will cry. If i dont get any Es or Us I will be happy. Would have loved it if I got Cs and above tbh but i know that aint gonna happen with a sh*tty year

    Wow. That's a lottt of essay writing, aha, good luck! What were your GCSE results then? Nice to see someone feeling optimistic. I'm ((hopefully)) applying to Cambridge too.
    Thank you and good luck to you too!

    GCSEs were 3A*, 6A 1B. Good but not great. Below average for Cambridge and quite frankly I could have done a lot better. Had a **** work ethic.

    I'm hoping to apply for English, what about you?

    BBB

    What are you expecting?
    BCC

    How will you open them?
    They're on an A4 sheet without an envelope so no opening for me

    How will you celebrate / react?
    If I get in I will probably smile all day and celebrate by going for a meal

    Ahh, they're certainly nothing to be ashamed of, and your AS levels will show how much your work ethic has improved

    Physics! Or the natural sciences, hopefully, I'll have to wait and see...

    What are you hoping for? ABBB

    What are you expecting? ACCB

    How will you open them? Think I'm going to run to the car and open them in there, last year I turned up late so it was just me and my friend with all the teachers watching

    How will you celebrate / react? I think I'll genuinely burst into tears no matter what happens, it's been such a stressful year.

    You carried on 4 to A2 eh? Pretty heavy going!

    I hope you get the grades you want/need.

    i'll do a backflip 360 onto a skateboard, do a kickflip to 50/50 along a desk, snatch my results envelope, heelflip into a wood cutting machine which will sharpen my skateboard into a razor sharp knife, which i will then kick against the wall which will bounce back and slice my envelope open.

    Hoping for: 3A*s-A*AA (but all for separate reasons since originally was hoping for A*AB since I got ABC at AS, but somehow I proved myself wrong)

    Expecting: AAA or higher, maths and chemistry relying on grade boundaries for the A*s since I know I've gotten As and economics is subjective and depends on how we'll the examiner thinks I've a answered the question.

    Will open them at school.

    I know I've got the grades so if will definitely be going out to celebrate, I only need ABB for Bristol, and won't go through adjustment so fun for me

    Hoping for A(*)AAb

    Realistic AABb

    I will probably open them alone in my bedroom like I did with my GCSE's.

    Good - Celebratory meal with friends or family
    Bad - Don't even want to go there.

    Hoping for ABB but realistically all I need is a C in maths and then a B in one of my other subjects to get into my firm (Reading if anyone is interested 😃)

    Expecting ABC/ABD/ABE

    How I will open them? Well my friend is sleeping at my house the night before so I'll probably walk to school with her and then collect my envelop before doing my usual "I'm too scared to open it!" whilst around me everyone else opens theirs. Eventually I'll gather up the courage to open them. Not sure if I'm checking track before my results or not!

    How I'll react: If I get into my firm I'll probably be jumping around hugging my friend (who thankfully hasn't applied to uni this year so I don't need to worry that she hasn't got in to uni) and then hugging my teachers, probably whilst crying. Then I'll phone my parents.
    If I don't get into my firm I'll probably sink to the floor and start crying my eyes out!

    How I'll celebrate: probably by going out with several of my friends that night and getting drunk (even if I don't get into my firm)! Then probably going out for a meal with my family the following evening.

    Want: AAAAA

    Estimate: AAABB+

    How will I open the envelope: with shaking hands and sweat dripping.

    (We don't have A*)
