    Well, for GCSEs, I opened the envelope the second I got it even though I promised myself I'd do it alone. So I was basically in a room full of people doing exactly the same thing as me.

    I think this time it will be the same sort of thing, the same confusion as to exactly what grades we've got, etc. I'm not too bothered about my friends knowing what grades I've got really, even if I have done badly.

    i don't know im very excited because i have never been to a results day as have always been away or working this is my A2 year and my first results day i will probaly end up opening it then running to my mates and shouting.

    I don't mind getting lower results than my mates as it regularly happens im not the cleverest one and i don't work as hard in my academics as my friends.

    We will still all go out for a meal good or bad drowning sorrows or celebrating

    I opened mine in school (AS and GSCE) and proceeded to watch my mate accidently shread her results in the schools industrial sized shredder...

    She put them by the opening to the machine as a joke...but it quickly ate them up...

    Ill never forget seeing her trying to drag them back out frantically :rolleyes:

    What made it worse...all the teachers saw it on the cctv in the staff room :p:
    Thanks for giving me a giggle, needed it from reading this thread!

    My opening could be any one of these:
    - Stride up to table confident, grab envelope, rip it open.
    - Study results, cry for a bit as I realise that I got in to Kent.
    - Run off to find everyone I can and tell them all.

    Or:
    - Stride confidently up, grab envelope, rip it open.
    - Study results, cry for a long time as I realise I didn't get in.
    - Run off to find my Head of Year to get her to help me sort out the bugging of Kent.
    - Accept Nottingham Trent as my new home

    Or:
    - Come in as a nervous wreck, manage to make my way to the table, grab envelope and stare at it for an hour.
    - Get someone else to open it and check the results for me
    - Cry
    - Do as needed.

    I really hope it's the first one, though I think it may be the second.

    Edit: I see there's a thread dealing with this.

    It will update around 8am, and a message will say 'Congratulations, your place to study ... at ... has been confirmed' (only if you are successful obviously!)

    Last year, a load of mates opened them together, out on the grass where we usually hung out at the time. Then we all went back to my house in the evening, so the ones with bad grades could drown their worries lol.

    Get into school, look at my envilope straight away and then respond as nescerry-ie. I get in and go nuts, or I don't and be very slightly upset, depending on how bad it is. Oh, and then I'll go and get pissed.

    I just open it as soon as I get it, but as everyone else is also eager to get their results, they don't really see your results.

    I then decide whether I'm going to leave quietly or tell everyone what I got...

    For my GCSE's I opened them with my parents, and for my AS I opened them in the middle of the hall at the same time as my friend did.


    But those results had far less meaning than these ones did, and also both times I did much better than anyone expected me to (because I am actually well thick when it comes to most things) and this year it is physically impossible to exceed expectations because everyone assumes I will get AAA, that is everyone except me, sigh.

    I can't really open them completely on my own because my parents will want to know within 2 minutes of me knowing, which doesn't give me much time to accept them in my head. So I'll probably sit in the car with my parents and open them. Sigh.


    Brilliant thread idea, I'm off to do straight revision for hours!

    My mum is like that. For the summer results for GCSE and AS she would have opened them before I did given half the chance lol. I've only managed to look at the winter results for GCSE, AS and A2 in private, which is something I much prefer.
