    My exams results like many peoples are coming tomorrow morning (oh my) in the mail and I have already started the nervous things. Also one week til school starts again!

    I have cleaned my room, cleaned everything I could, done some homework, brushed the dogs, made a meal...etc.....

    Do you find exam results although stressful sometimes can be a great motivator? What crazy things have you done before getting results?

    In case you wonder, I am doing Biology and Physics essays right NOW!!!

    Not for results, but to avoid revising and panicking last year my very messy friend tidied up her whole room.

    last year I tidied my room two days before results! I also cleared the downstairs of the house. And I also took apart out gas BBQ and completely cleaned it out (oh the baked on filth!).

    Although I did have a motive, because every year I do throw a big results party with a BBQ. Of course if I dont get the grades this year, I really don't know how keen I'll be to have people round again like i have the past 2 years.

    "1 week til school begins"?? I go back to college on the 2nd week of September...

    I spent last night doing complex maths with my module 1 scores hoping to deduce the likelihood of various results in a logical way. It just ended up with me absent mindedly writing "AAA...AAAARGH!" all over the paper...

    scottish highers
    And Advanced Highers and Standard Grades and Intermediate 1 and 2 and a whole load of things. Everyone's results come out on the same day in Scotland.

    The only motivation I find for doing anything just now is sitting down, shaking my hands about and yelling with worry.

    You must be kidding! I'm going to sleep. An allnighter would just wreck me and make me so much worse. Plus I was at summer school last week so I'm only just starting to catch up on sleep. I won't go to bed too early to save me lying awake and worrying. I'll just sit and chill and listen to Queen .

    Hehe fair enough. It's just if I were waiting for post I'd never get to sleep. I don't sleep until about 4am as it is!

    Me 2 ,I'm waiting for my AS results,,I did IGCSE IT this year,and the results should've been out since the morning but for some hazy reason we still dont have our results,I mean I've spent the whole night keep sleeping just for couple of minutes and then waking up,and after going through all of the stress,it turned out that the marks didn't get here,or the plane t got crached and our results burned with the left ashs of the plane*LOL*what would happen if this was true,would they just send new reports???!
