    Bearing in mind, I'm not quite sure what time my college is releasing them...but is it better to go later or before the set time, in your opinion?

    On the set time or up to 25 later.

    Why arrive earlier than the set time, it'll just pee off your school and make you look strangely desperate (or is that just me, who worries about looking too eager?).

    Well, uh, no. I'm sorry I didn't make it clear, but early as in, get there when they hand it out. Or later, as in, after most people will already of had theirs.

    EDIT: wait confusion there. id go early myself coz i just want to know and you can be relieved before everyone else. but then if you got later youd avoid the queues.

    You said you didn't know at what time they will be releasing results. :confused:

    I'm going to go when everybody else is getting their results, just I don't want to be the first person there! :p:

    me neither. if you're first then people will be watching you open them probably anyway

    its best with loads of other students there for distraction, unless you want everyone to know

    I like to turn up a bit later and by that I mean like 10-15 minutes after the set time when it has all died down a bit. I did that for AS and it was fine.

    When I had my AS level results - the college indicated 11-2 - I thought, oh I'll get there at 12, then it isn't going to be as busy and it'l be quicker to get them. Oh, how wrong I was! By the time it was 12, the queue for results spanned round the whole college, I had to queue for about 2 hours - and there is nothing that makes waiting for your results more nerve wracking than waiting in a queue for 2 hours with nothing else to think about!

    This year for my A levels I might even try and get there slightly early - however desperate it makes me look!

    Ofcourse, this should only apply to colleges as opposed to sixth forms within schools.

    if you get there later when most people have opened their own results people will be more likely to ask you what you got as you are opening them. this is less likely if you go early, as people who havent got theirs yet arent going to hang around to hear about other peoples results.

    If you go at one hour and seven minutes later than the advertised time they start handing out results, it's been proven you're more likely to do better in your A Levels. People who turn up any later or earlier than that often do worse.

    I don't know what time my college is giving out results either, or whether we can just turn up at any time during what would be a normal day; I'll have to phone them and find out. But I think the queues will be massive for ages anyway, judging by what it was like for our January module results!
