    I have booked my theory test on the 24 th of August at 12pm. However, the GCSE results day is on the same day and I get my GCSE results at 11:00am. Therefore, I'm worried in case I get grades am not happy with, will have an effect on my physical emotions on doing the theory test straight after the GCSE results.

    However, I can change the time to 9am for the theory test, and not have a chance of being annoyed, as I don't know what grades I have yet. However, this could make me anxious and worried, as I don't know the grades that I have got.

    Therefore, I am wondering, what time do you think I should take my test, 9 am (be slightly anxious and worried) or 12pm (slightly at risk of being disappointed with my GCSE results.)

    If you've revised for your theory properly, it will be a piece of cake regardless of the situation you find yourself in. Most of the answers are common sense anyway, and I doubt you will lose common sense no matter what your GCSE results turn out to be.

    You could just reschedule your theory test before results day (say a week before?) or just do it a week after to let the results sink in.

    Either way - Best of luck with results day and also the theory test

    Thanks, it just made it easier for me to go down on the same day. I think I'll stick with the 12pm one, allows me to get my head together, rather than the early 9am rush

    Just show up, the tests are a peace of piss anyway. If you couldn't pass it before you ever get into a car you shouldn't be learning to drive.

    Be careful about doing it at that time. You have to actually pick up your results which can take a bit of time because of everyone else there and get to the test centre a little early to read over their forms and stuff and there's not a lot of time there. Do you really want to be rushing it? Are you sure it wouldn't be better to sit it on a different day?
