    Arabic - B , Chemistry - B , Business Studies - A* , Biology - A , ICT - A , English - B , Maths - A, Physics - A
    I'm not actually sure what to expect haha but I have a feeling I won't be satisfied
    I'll see them online first really. I'll be in France at the time so will probably ruin my vacation or make it better idk.

    GCSE Results:

    What are you hoping for?
    - 1A* 6As 3Bs

    What are you expecting?
    - 4As 5Bs 3Cs

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    - No, because in certain subjects, I would like to get an A grade e.g. Maths, French and Eng. Lit.

    How will you open them?
    - Don't know yet

    How will you celebrate / react?
    - Probably cry happy or sad tears maybe both. I already know the FEELS will overcome me. And Nando's with friends.

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    - Most likely but it depends what 6th form I decide to go to. But I already have 3 A* - C grades.
    Good luck!

    What are you hoping for?
    10 A*s and a single A.
    What are you expecting?
    Nothing, but As and A stars. High expectations lead to disappointment, when not met. But I have put some work in to make sure that won't happen.
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    I'll be satisfied if I get what I hope for, or at least close to it. I need those results.
    How will you open them?
    I'll see how others around me do it, then figure out the best way from there.
    How will you celebrate / react?
    It all depends on what I get. If I get what I hoped for (ideal case scenario) then ecstasy is a nice way to sum up my reaction. Otherwise, it will all depend on what subjects I may have slipped on. If I didn't get an A star on Music, for example, I certainly won't cry about it.
    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    Most likely. The most they want is an A on Maths GCSE, and from my research I have almost certainly gained that.

    4-5 A*/A, the rest = B/C.
    What are you expecting?
    I'm hoping that History, English Lit and Core Science make up the A-team, French is hopefully B/A. Further/Additional science might be C/D, and maths is hopefully B.
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Yup.
    How will you open them?
    Move out the way obviously, and just open it
    How will you celebrate / react?
    No idea.
    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I'm certain of it.

    Enjoyed reading this feed as an A Level Student. I thought I was destined to fail as many did at GCSE's, but achieved 6A* and 4A so anything is possible just relax! Everyone does better than they hoped for GCSE, I swear on my life.

    GCSE Results:

    What are you hoping for?

    I was predicted 9.5A*s and 1 A but I'd be over the moon with 8A*s and 2.5As

    What are you expecting?

    6A*s, 3.5As and 1 B

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?

    Not really I want to do medicine but I'd be pushing it with only 6A*s.

    How will you open them?

    In school, feeling completely sick with nerves...I'd rather do it at home by myself in case I'm really disappointed but we have to enrol at our sixth form at the same time so I can't hehe.

    How will you celebrate / react?

    I'll just be incredibly relieved going to an Imagine Dragons concert the day after and my birthday is the day before so I'll be in a good mood either way

    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?

    Definitely. You need 14 points to get back in my sixth form, I have 1A* already which is four points so I'm pretty confident
    dont be silly 6a* is enough! dont listen to the teachers who say u need all a*'s to get into medicine. Focus hard next year to achieve the 4a's at AS and then take it from there.

    6A*s and 6As.
    What are you expecting?
    My school are expecting me to get 10Bs and 1C (one of the A*s from the 'hoping for' section is guaranteed - Core Science). I'd just my hopeful grades, of course, but I don't really want any B grades. If I do get some, I wouldn't mind it it was in English Literature and Media Studies, albeit I found those exams/coursework fun.
    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Not my school's expectation, I MUST PROVE THEM WRONG!
    How will you open them?
    Using my fingers.
    I will open them alone in a corner and see how I did, and then go over to my friends and congratulate them etc, then thank teachers, apply to Sixth Form if I get the grades, and finally, call my parents.

    How will you celebrate
    I plan to just spend the time with my friends afterwards, and then, or another day, go out for the evening with my famil to celebrate GCSE results, my sister's 2nd year of Uni and me completing my Gold DofE... well, besides the Residential.
    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    I hope so as I already have my B from English Language last year, but I hope to exceed that this year, and after talking to my friends who all excel at Maths (one has already finished AS Maths as he got an A* in GCSE Maths in Y10, the others just get A*s all the time), I found out that I can probably get about 130ish/200, so I should be able to get an A, and I only need a C... although a C is great anyway! And I also have my A* in Core Science, my Distinction in BTEC ICT and my Distinction* in BTEC PE, so as long as I can get about 2 more As/Bs, I will get in!

    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!

    I will be so happy if I get the grades that my teachers predicted for me, If my Geography teacher is there and somehow I get my target grade a B, I will thank her for believing in me and believing that I could get a B.

    Will you be satisfied with your expectation?
    Not really, I want 5A*s but other than that I guess so
    How will you open them?
    Open it and focus on each grade 1 at a time so it's not overwhelming.
    How will you celebrate / react?
    I kept a pretty straight face when I got 2 A*s last year (I am happy on the inside) so probably like that.
    Will you meet your Sixth Form/College offer?
    Yes you only need 5 A*-C

    I would just like to say that Medicine has always been in the back of my mind but I clearly won't be successful in that career when there are others on here who plan on getting much better grades than me and still feel unsuitable for medicine.

    Also, how is everyone doing so many GCSEs? I am doing the maximum that my school allow and that is 10.5 and lets be honest, the 0.5 doesn't count, one of them is only a 'certificate' (further maths) and one is graded like BTEC but isn't one (ICT) so technically I will only have 8 actual GCSEs and there are people here doing 13+

    Feeling very inferior right now haha
