    I'm opening mine in the car with my mum outside school because no matter what I get I'll cry from the build up of fear/excitement/dread/disappointment/sadness/happiness. Also I could pass out when I get myself so worked up for something

    Nah, I cried buckets last year. It means just as much because that's what's most important in your academic life at the minute. Always hated when people in years above try to belittle the lower years' fears.

    Nah, I wouldn't blame you to be honest, an exam is an exam, results are always scary. If it makes you feel any better, I even worry about end of topic tests! Good luck by the way!

    Well I'm going to save myself the embarrassment of opening five U grades and do it in the car, and then with a bit of luck, fewer people will see me cry.

    I cried on AS results day, as I didn't get the grade I thought I would in one of my subjects (I got a B, but I seriously thought I'd get an A!). Nobody saw though as I got my results online at home, luckily! The same thing happened on A2 results day as well, but I got over it

    It's fine.

    Better than those guys that cry when they get 89% UMS instead of 90%.

    I opened mine in the car with mum last year and bawled my eyes out because I did better than I could've ever expected. Sad or happy tears, cry all you want

    No, I'll probably be crying if I get upset. Whilst ours might not dictate whether or not we get into university just yet, but they're still important to us. They're the hardest exams we've (probably) done to date, and we put a lot of stress and effort into them.

    i cried on AS results day! I got ABBB, which i know is a great set of results and nothing to be sad about, but I had let myself believe that I was going to get at least 3 A's. It was a shock to say the least, a wake up call to let me know that no, i had not revised/worked hard enough, and no A Levels are not a breeze. Overall, emotions on results day are sky high, so you won't be abnormal if you tear up a little (or a lot), don't worry

    Unless that one grade makes the difference between getting into your firm or your insurance.
    Though for Y12s that would be stupid as they can't get A*s

    The university would be a proper ******* to reject someone because of one mark.

    It happens, it's dumb but it does Luckily a lot of university consider people who have missed their offer by one grade a second priority so it's not completely hopeless
