    Is it me or has this week come to an end rather rapidly?
    I'm glad it has - another few days closer to ending this horribly pointless wait.

    So for those who aren't going to do an all-nighter, what time do you intend to wake up? Are you going to wake up as soon as track updates and jump out of your bed, zealously switching on your laptop/computer or are you going to wake up when you do and check it then?

    my routine is so screwed up that even if I wasn't going to do an all-nighter I would be going to bed after 6 anyway lol. But alas I am only AS anyway so nothing to check lol. I will enjoy the suspense that everyone else is having though. But in a way I feel this years results are more important than nexts as it sets out where I will be applying and it is what I will get offers based on, I'm sure I will disagree with this logic next year though.

    I reckon I'm gonna attempt an all-nighter and fail, then wake up at like 7 irregardless of when I fell asleep and F5 track until the button breaks...
    Or attempt and all-nighter and manage it, then get two hours sleep before waking up to go to sixth form and get the envelope of dreams / doom.

    If checked on Track beforehand, it could remove the anticipation of what the envelope holds, if i know I've already got into my Uni...

    So, I'm unsure of whether or not I'll check Track beforehand; an all-nighter may occur, but to checking.... i don't know; I probably will succumb to F5-bashing before I wander in to pick up the envelope!

    Arrangements for the issue of GCE and GCSE results, for centres in Northern Ireland only, are as follows:
    Read the article carefully...
    Those in Northern Ireland will get GCE (e.g. Alevel) results on the same day as everyone else...

    They can see 'CCEA' exam-board GCSE results can be seen early, but hard copies can only be acquired at the same time as the other exam board's results, when most people get their results.

    For me getting into my first choice uni is more important. I couldn't care what my results are. However, our school will put our results up on the school intranet at the same time that UCAS updates :eek:

    That's what I intend to do get my results first and if I've met the grade requirement then there's no need to check track. But if you check track first and then you see that you haven been successful in getting an unconditional offer you'll go into college knowing you havent obtained the results you need.

    But 13 days, I'm going to miss this thread when it's all over!!!!
