    Oh! I had my first results day dream last night - I was trying to get to college to collect my results by bus. You know on buses they sometimes have that screen that says "Sorry - Not in Service"? Well I was just wandering around where I live trying to find a bus and they were all driving past me with screens saying "Sorry - You Have Failed", "No, really - You Have Missed Your Grades" and "No University For You Then!". It was horrible :sad:

    I hate the way they do results at my school. At least it was this way for GCSEs. We go into the 6th form common room and all the tables are pushed together with sheets and sheets of paper on them which are apparently in alphabetical order. So while desparately searching for your results you see everyone elses and panic more and more. Then when you finally find yours you have no real choice but to look at them there and then as they don't even put them in envelopes!

    Our school has boxes of envelopes on tables at one end of the hall, and they're handed out from there.

    My school has them all laid out alphabetically on tables, but they're sometimes in envelopes and sometimes not. I hope they're in envelopes this time...

    My GCSE's were not in envelopes but my AS were. Last year we got our results in the school library with one half of it for AS students and the other A2 students then there is one table with the results on it in alphabetical order, there is only 35 people or so in A2 year this year so only one table will be needed.

    I have no idea how my school does them because I was on holiday when I got my GCSE results and I checked my AS grades on the internet so there was no point in going to school.

    Could be that the school uploads them to the intranet, or you could also get them through ResultsPlus if all your exams were with Edexcel and your school had signed up to the service.
