    I plan to check on UCAS that morning before I leave. If I've been rejected then I probably won't bother going in :p:

    No, just someone who was predicted higher and disapppointed they didn't get it.Wouldn't you be upset if you'd missed all your predicted grades? :rolleyes:
    ;yes; i would be since all mine are really low barring one

    I'm not sure whether or not to do what I did for my GCSEs (which was to ask the woman to fold it over so I couldn't see, and then wait until I was on the way to the bus stop) or what I did for my AS Levels (which was to just open them as soon as I was handed them).

    Or maybe I'll just skulk off into a corner.

    So, assuming the UCAS website doesn't crash, will your acceptance into university definitely be confirmed there before we get the results from school?

    I bet most of us haven't even finished our exams, and we're all fantazising about results day! This summer is going to be unbearable!

    Presumably UCAS automatically changes everyone's status who's gotten their entry grades (or higher) to UF? (Or whichever it is that a CF gets changed to)

    My college also allows you to see them online on result day starting at 6am. Although last year they forgot, so everyone who got up early was hitting F5 until about 7:30am.

    Plus they do say the online version is only 99% accurate, so you always have a slight fear that there might be a mistake until you open the envelope. But I presume that's just there to cover themselves.

    me too, i had a dream i opened my envelope and got 3 Bs and then i cried. i really am pathetic sometimes.
    Not pathetic at all, actually the other day I did have a dream that I got a C in Biology and thus couldn't get into the university I wanted to get into, I was crying and everything. Woke up suddenly at half 4am in the morning, the dream scared me to hell! :p:

    Urgh. Last year for AS me and my friend went into the toliets to open them together. She is so clever. Got AAAB i think whereas all i got was CDD ( yes i am thick. My excuse - daydreaming throughout college and lack of revsion but it is probably for the simple fact that i am dense.) So i won't be doing that again.

    I think (hope) i have done better this year. Although i am probably wrong. I want to go into the toliets by myself this year to open them but i know my mates will want to go to college with me and we will all end up opening them together.

    If i get what i got last year i am never going home again. Urgh. I donlt want to give my family any more reasons to see me as thick. Urgh.

    I haven;t applied to UCAS (i am taking a year out) so i wonlt know what my results are until the actual time.

    Being a below average person i don;t really get upset if my friends have done well. I am a bit jeolous. But i am also very happy for them and i hate it when they pretend they are not happy with AAA or whatever it may be.

    I'm sorry you had a rough time of it last year.

    Just so you know CDD is a good set of results. I've lots of friends who would be overjoyed to get that. If you have done your best this year, then you can be cofident to know you should get what you know you deserve - just don't feel bad if things have gone wrong somewhere because A Levels are hard and hence you have nothing to feel 'dense' about. *Hugs*

    it was a bit of a nast act really. i got a B in one exam, and everyone sat there glaring at me. she even seemed to be really excited that some people got Us, and took great pleasure in telling them that she wasn't going to let them resit. and in English our teacher made sure that everyone knew that i only got a C by one mark.

    I'll probably check UCAS and my email to see if I have anything from the uni...


    but definitely in some corner alone! Thing is, my parents will be away on hols when I get them, and the day after results I fly out with my older brother to join them...so it could be the best or the worst holiday of my life :|

    I always go to a corner and see it by myself, that way, I think it's less embarrassing if you dont get whats expected of you (like in my case) and you get to just calm yourself down, before seeing other people about it..

    Sorry. I'm not trying to make everyone feel sorry for me. I know DDC isn;t a bad set of results. My brother got AABB overall (with no revsion!) and i am just highly jeolous. Lol.

    Everyone on here as well seem to all be getting As but i suppose people who come on her to discuss work and likely to be getting high grades.
