    Loads of people seem to get envelopes, of all the results day I've had not once have our school given them in envelopes.
    Perhaps they're saving money on wasted envelopes... maybe they'll give the A2 Students envelopes though, the big results etc.!

    Seriously? For my GCSEs and AS' they were in envelopes so I gather that this time will be no different. Maybe your school cares about the environment?! :p:

    I doubt it, they're very tight with money, despite receiving £5000 per head per course (or so I've been told), you'd think that type of budget would allow for an envelope.

    I'm not sure how I want to do it yet...!
    Maybe I'll walk into school at 7am to be the first in the queue, get my results, check them while all my mates are getting their results...
    reseal the envelope.
    If the results are positive and I've successfully got a place, I'll stick around and wait for my mates.
    If not, I'll make a quick and quiet exit to some corner to start frantically phoning with an attempt to be one of the first through clearing; before hopefully returning and informing peopleof my outcome.

    I'm not sure how I'll actually do it yet though!

    For GCSE, I opened them on my own then found friends.

    For this one, I am going to take them and just go home.

    Which shall I vote for?

    I find somewhere private like a little corner to open them and then stick around for ages to see how everyone else did.
    :ditto:
