    I;m trying not to think about this at the moment, particularly because I still have three exams outstanding, but does anyone know the procedure for Results Day? For example, do you go in to your school and collect your resutls are are they posted to you? In addition to this, I assume that the results are in individual envelopes for each candidate - is this correct? On your results slip, does it tell you the actual mark you achieved for each componant of the exam (e.g. coursework, paper 1, paper 2 etc) or just give you an overall grade?
    I would be very grateful if anyone who has collected results in previous years could reply to this thread - as yet I've receieved no information from my school with regard to tbe standard procedures.

    Many thanks

    Most people go in to school to collect their results, but if you don't want to or you're on holiday or something, they'll be posted to you. Mine were in an unsealed envelope, and I had a sheet of paper from each exam board plus one my school did with all my subjects and grades on it. What you're actually told depends on subject and exam board- mine were just overall grades except English and English lit, which were UMS marks for each exam and coursework, and maths, which was a combined UMS mark for exams and one for coursework.

    Right well, I know that exams come in an envelope, and you pick them up from your school. (At least this was the procedure when I got my 2 early GCSE results). It's probable that u can get them posted, however it's better to pick them up as it could take a while to deliver, and if they got lost in the post you'd be a bit stuck.

    Now, I believe for GCSEs it only gives you your single grade in the format (B) (b) (that is what is displayed on the page). When I received my slips of paper for french and tech, they were a different print due to one of them being AQA and the other being Edexcel. The one thing I am unsure about is whether we get results specific to a certain exam board on one sheet for that board, or whether we get separate certificates for each individual examination results. As both of my exams were with different boards, it was impossible to know.

    I'll post on thw AS level board in order to find out for you, hope I was some help.

    You get a seperate sheet (and later certificate) for each exam board.

    yes but does this sheet have all board-specific examinations.For example I'm doing edexcel geography and edexcel maths. Will I get this on the same sheet (not certificate) or will I get a separate sheet for each?

    Yeah, that's right, so all your Edexcel results will be together and so on.

    So if the envelopes arrive at the school on the 25th and the teachers can produce an extra sheet with your combined results, when do *they* first see the results?

    Yeh, we should. Hmm... not fair - its our work, and they are our results, I think we should get to see them first - and then they'll do the "So what did you get?" When they'll obviously already know!

    Oh sorry - I was a bit slow on picking up the "tension" between you two (created by the "Medicine at Oxbridge" post?).

    I'm so stupid! I always take everything literally! :p:
