    I have just driven past a school and there are 3 tents outside the gates and a queue of about 20 people! They must be opening at midnight or perhaps it some sort of joke?!

    It was a very surreal experience! After a six hour drive, I thought I was hallucinating! I'm stuck in queues on some motorway somewhere but I'll keep my eyes peeled for any more enthusiastic students! It's like a new Harry Potter is being released or something!!

    It didn't occur to me to take a picture, I was half asleep and gawping a the weirdos from the window.

    It'd make you wonder.

    Maybe they're doing it because normally they wouldn't be able to wake up, even for an important day, being 'students' and all that. Camping outside a school would force them to get up.

    Anyway it's a bit pathetic, whatever the result I'd want a comfortable night's sleep.

    Maybe they thought that results day was like the Next winter sale... and that if they didn't camp out, all the A's would have gone. :holmes:

    I'm only in year 10 but for some reason am beside myself with excitement and the reaction on TSR after midnight! It feels like election night!

        Results day IS the election night of TSR.

        It's the most important day in the TSR calendar. :p:
