    I wouldn't like to cry in front of my entire year. :mmm: I've been away over my results days so I haven't had to make that decision.

    You can do what you like though. (:

    Teachers already know your GCSE grades the day before you open them and so they'll probably manipulate you to open them or something.

    Well... you can't tell. Your teachers will already know your grades so no problems there.

    Well, it depends really! Helpful huh...

    If you open and results at school and they're great then.. way hey no problems!

    If you open your results at school and they're bad then although you can't really count on your friends for support as they'll be preoccupied with there's. If it's GCSEs or mock results for GCSEs or A-Levels then this wouldn't be too bad and you shouldn't be able to brush it off and move on, finding what you did wrong to improve. However, if they're for your actual A-Levels and you now can't get into any unis, it might be good to be around your teachers to discuss your options.

    If you open your results at home/out of school and they're good then.. way hey, message your friends and family - without sounding like a.. you know, of course. :P

    If you open your results at home/out of school and they're bad then it'd be best to do it when you get home so you (hopefully) have someone like a family member there to support you and discuss what you can do next. Be careful if you do it out of school and are travelling.. don't want to be tempted to jump in front of something. Jks jks, hopefully.

    Good luck for your results!
