    So i'm on holiday for my GCSE results day (25th of Aug) and i'm not gonna lie, I really want to open my resuts on the same day as everyone else. I have a few options, and I just wanted some imput on the situation. I'm still in England, and my dad is willing to take me back for the day, however it is a 3 hour drive, and I feel like it will break up the holiday. I could ask for a friend to pick it up for me and let me know how I did, however that may feel a little distant having someone open them before me. My parents have suggested (and let me just say, I would feel a little weird doing this) hiring someone (i.e a courrier) to drop them up to us where we are staying on holiday. Also I was thinking maybe a teacher could email them to me? Or would that not be allowed? I suppose at the end of the day I could just wait, but then I wouldnt be finding them out until long after the actual results day. Im sorry for the long paragraph, this is just really upsetting me that I might have to find out after all of my friends have moved on with their summer, leaving me to dealing with the results myself. Haha, anyway, thanks for reading, and opinions are appreciated!

    You can write a formal letter to your exams officer stating that another person that you trust can collect your results and make sure it's signed personally by you.

    Hey,
    usually the school should email your results to you. I did two gcses last year and I was away for results day but still got them by email.

    Im not sure if this is only my school but ask your teachers if you can get them emailed.

    GOOD LUCK!!

    You school will have a plan for this but different schools do it different ways (some will email, some won't, some make them available online etc) so ask your exams officer what the options are

    As soon as the school closes for results day, they pile up all of the uncollected results and ceremonially burn them. Okay, maybe not.
