    GCSE results day - Thursday 22 August 2013

    Good luck to everyone as we approach the publication of GCSE results. This thread is here for you to discuss your thoughts about results with others in a similar position. Feel free to chat about any of your feelings, concerns or hopes with other members here

    If you'd like to share your predictions for your results, as well as the actual grades that you achieve on the day, you can use the dedicated "Post your results" thread. Upon publication, the Grade boundaries thread will be used to share the details made available by exam boards. For anyone disappointed with their results, we have a thread with advice for those who haven't done as well as they hoped to help you to decide what to do next.

    GCSE RESULTS DAY 2013

    Here, we can discuss results day - our excitement, nerves, predictions and overall grades on the day!

    • When is results day? Thursday 22nd August
    • I'm scared about my friends asking me what I got, what shall I do? Don't open your results in front of them. If you do, pull the :ninja: face
    • I didn't do as well as I thought, what shall I do? You have a couple of options here. First think about the subject, if it was a Maths/Science it is unlikely to be marked wrong (though it does happen). If it is an English/essay based, you may want to consider a remark. You also have the option of resitting.


    "TSR and the real world is different. In the TSR world if you achieve anything less than 56 A*'s you are a failure."

    Don't compare your grades with TSR users, please. Just don't.



    Funny story:
    Last year I went on holiday during results day. So I checked my Geography Edexcel result online at 6AM (America time) and read a big "F" - freaked out then went back to sleep. Didn't even tell my parents what it was. Came back to England, realised the "F" stood for "Female" and I actually got an A*

    Definitely not looking forward to it, as would many others, but I'm interested to know what I got in my worst exams for some reason :') I haven't got any predictions in fear of being dissapointed when I read the results etc. so I'm hoping for the best and expecting the worst

    (I haven't finished my exams yet - still have the sciences left to finish as I'm doing triple :rolleyes:)

    I just want it to be over with. It's just the most terrifying experience ever, especially since we've put so much work into it. The fact that everyone's going to be asking everyone else what they got (when they're not actually interested, they just want an excuse to say "That's nice, I got 10A*s") just adds to the pressure. Also the results forms themselves can be cryptic and it's very easy to misread things under the pressure and get excited/upset about something that isn't actually there. It's nice that people are negging this for no reason.

    I'm looking forward to it but wish it wasn't so far away. I understand that it takes ages to mark and check exams, I just wish it didn't. I have added pressure as results day is on my mum's birthday so if I do badly that'll put a damper on the day :P

    I remember how last year I was so nervous about getting my Core Science results, and now I look back on it, I had no reason to be nervous as they didn't mean much. I'm still contemplating if I should open them at school, or go home and open them. Ugh, such a long wait.

    Last year I didn't show up to collect my core science results as I was terrified and being the idiot that I am, I thought the school was open the entire day to collect the results so when I finally did get my results in september I opened them at school. Luckily they were ok, but thats cause I worked harder for those exams then I did for all the exams this month collectively :/ I don't want to open them at school in case I get really bad results and I'm like


    And everyone else gets good grades and are all like


    so yeah definitely opening them at home :P

    Whenever I've had to open results I literally rip that envelope open...after waiting 2 months for results, the minute I get my hands on the envelope I just need to know !! But then again I have little self control
    Though when I do open them I just calmly walk away without showing much emotion; whether I've done well or not...

    Your school will have the information available somewhere but I don't think they'd waste money on sending letters. If you still don't know the week before, ring the school or something. And I have no idea why you'd have to wear school uniform? It's holiday!
