    Maybe I should call it 17 days, but it feels so better saying 16 because it feels like it is less time to wait....ahh the ignorance :p:
    Lol, I'm doing it with weeks. So everytime we pass thursday it's like another week has gone by. So last friday I was like "Yes! only 2 weeks to go" when in actual fact it's 2 weeks and 6 days.

    thought i'd join in with the 'how do you get your results'
    we have 3 tables and it's like 'A-F' 'G-P' 'Q-Z' of surnames. you go up to the table say your name and they give you the sheets with your results on, so you can't help but look straight away!
    and we get them in our sixth form...wish we got envelopes though.

    At my sixth form all the form teachers are sat at desks and you just have to go up to your teacher and they'll give you yours and then ask if you want to talk about it or jsut go off and look at them - I didnt realise they said this to everyone last year so when she handed me mine and asked if i needed to talk about the results with her, i was convinced that I'd failed them all and almost burst out crying before i even looked at them

    Mine at secondary school were quite interesting. We used the dinner hall. There was no one there to hand you your results. The staff had just placed everyone’s in alphabetical order going from left to right across all the dinner hall tables in the room. So when you walk in, you had to walk round the dinner tables till you eventually saw your envelope. Weird. I got in late that day so everyone else knew what they got already. I walked (ok, run) around the dinner hall looking for my envelope. I eventually got shown where they were by my mate and proceeded to rip open the envelope. However, my teachers sorta ruined the surprise just before I opened them up, saying something like "ooh, you've done really well, you know." Having obviously overheard what my teachers had said, huge swarms of people gathered round me to see me open up the envelope. I actually didn't notice they were there watching me open them, (as I was way too excited to focus on anything but opening the envelope). It wasn't till after I'd seen my results and screamed, that I realised everyone was staring at me. How embarrassing! And it wasn't like I let out a manly-ish scream (if that’s even possible). I let out an ear-piercing type squeal - you know those ones that the 'Shaniquas' do on the bus when they see their mates. Only louder, and higher pitched. Embarrassing! :o: One of my mates even remembers my reaction till this day! :o:

    At sixth form (new school), we just walked into the hall and a teacher had all the results of everyone in your form in alphabetical order in envelopes. Pretty much bog standard get your results and rip them open right there and then. :teeth:

    Hmm, I think that the above conversation on how the results will be laid out shows the official start of panicking. :p:

    Well fingers crossed you do this year.

    I haven't had one since GCSEs though all thanks to Edexcel ResultsPlus (and the fact that the markschemes are always leaked before hand so I sorta know what to expect) :ninja:

    how can you check on the internet?, did your school put them up?
    Yep, school puts them up. They will update results just when UCAS updates so I'm going to have a bit of a dilemma on the 20th :rolleyes:

    As long as its good news, i'll probably go for a drink with my Mum & Dad, then off to a Friends Results BBQ and finally off to a "School's Out" night in town!

    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!
    AS results day was proper weird in my college, there was no one there, only 13 people or something, and tables were spread around the sports hall and I think it was like A-E and F-J... and you'd go there giving your ID number and address, they'll look through the envelopes they have and then you'd run away with the envelope! loool :p:

    In my college we have to line up systematically in a queue in the canteen which is relatively small so it cannot accommodate for all the students at my college. So when I recieved my AS results I struggled to get out of the canteen because of the amount of people in there. When you eventually got to the front of the queue a lady would ask you which letter your surname starts with and direct you to that letter table. I just pray this time around its well planned and organised.

    Hypothetically speaking, of course, not that I'd go looking for this sort of thing, but where would one come across these mark schemes before results day? :ninja:
