    No, I get the bloody irritating one who goes "oh that's really good, well done!" when someone else gets a C, but cries for 4 days if she gets a B in a module.
    Double-standarded idiot.

    I'm sick of being told "Oh don't worry" about my conditional AAA offer, while she has a nervous breakdown and has to see the doctor, while sitting exams for her unconditional offer and scholarship at her favourite Uni.

    They don't even put them in envolopes at my school. They're just on pieces of paper so everyone can see... last year for my AS's they gave me the wrong persons :eek: so I had to go back and ask for mine!

    This year I'll be on holiday with two friends so will find out over the phone (let's hope they give me the right ones this time ha)... heavy drinking will follow, whatever the results!

    No, but perhaps a simple "well done" rather than an overdone "a C is really really good, what are you upset about?"

    As she resits an exam because her A wasn't high enough for her liking.

    If her offer was high, I'd understand. But it's unconditional. So her stress levels really irritate me.

    I'll probably go back to my car to open them and then come back to chat with everyone. But yeah, I'll be checking UCAS first and if I havnt got in I'll just take them home.
    We'll see how my last two exams go, but all I can imagine is BCC. Its what I need for uni, so its fine.. but a lot lower than im predicted.

    I can't open mine with friends around, I just can't!

    I hate it, because if you've done really badly, you can't just have a breakdown in public.
    If you've done REALLY well, you can't be too happy about it, because friends nearby may have been disappointed and so you can't come across as a show off.
    If you've done ok, but someone has done much better, you just have to fix a fake grin.

    Horribbbleee.

    I'll open mine at home, alone.

    EDIT: Then go to a friend's party and get very drunk...whatever the outcome. :p:

    I'm in the US at the time so my parents will know before me They are going to collect them and then phone me, Iwill definitely be in a quiet corner though. As I'm in NY it will be about 5-6 in the morning but I doubt I will get much sleep that night anyway, I might just find an Internet cafe and sit there refreshing UCAS Track all night

    Just realised my Mum will want to be there. she'll be hanging at the door! So I'd have to sort of yell over my shoulder at my friends whether yes or no and go to my mum, then rush back to fill in my friends! Ah confusing haha. oh well, I really should stop planning this, i haven't even finished my exams!
