    Reading various threads I've noticed that people have very differing opinions on where and when they will open their results..

    So where will you open yours?

    E.g.
    -with all your friends
    -at home
    -at school
    -alone in the toilet

    Im going to check track to see if I got into university, then check my edexcel results online, and then finally make my way into school to collect my last result. However im only going to open them either alone or with my boyfriend, cant handle tonnes of people being around me asking what I got

    When I collected my A-level results, everyone queued up to collect them. I was near the front and opened mine as I got them, but very few other people did. Most people disappeared off to various corners of the school and then returned to the collection area to discuss their results after they'd processed them privately first.

    Hopefully getting two subject results online using edexcel results plus at 6:00am and will be with my best friend at her house

    If they're awful, I'll probably be too scared to go in for my English Literature result, but I guess I'll have to I'll just rip open the envelope at my school in a corner probably won't be too scared if I already know two of them.

    Last year I planned to go back to my car, but on the way in my English teacher told me I should be pleased with my result so I just ripped it open

    once i actually have the results in my hand i won't be able to NOT open them on the spot

    hopefully i will have gotten the chance to check track earlier though so that i know roughly what the results will show

    I'd hate people to be around me and/or watching me... My boyfriend might be with me and I don't even want him to see immediately But I'd love to just go home and go to bed and open them, but I might be moving sixth forms for Year 13 so I need to know them and then go to the other place on results day... So I'll just be going somewhere where I'm by myself (empty hallway/classroom/toilet) and open them there, I guess
