    I think I would have signed up, but I only read about it today and apparently the deadline for signing up is 18 July.

    Eh? We were never told about this! The only one I knew about was the Edexcel online one.

    Where did you read about it, and how much does it cost? I'll be in Thailand that day - not that I'm telling OCR that!

    Vesta, why not try and sign up now? Knowing OCR they won't have finished processing the requests yet anyway...

    I wouldn't have the guts to do that... Imagine walking down a street, getting a text, not reading who it's from and just reading it and finding out you failed everything - I wouldn't be a happy chappy.

    lol, I think it's to make everyone feel happier about what they get, seeing as you can't really get much worse than that.

    I've never heard of this either, though I REALLY wouldn't like getting my results via text message. Plus they don't tell you the UMS... so pointless really lol.
