    heey guuys ! the big day is nearly upon us and i shall be returning from my lovely holiday on the day they're released so i'm getting my dad to pick them up before picking me up from the airport !

    i know as long as i write a letter of authorisation and blah blah blah he'll be able to collect them on my behalf however i have a query.. my school has practically given no information for students who need to do this and so i've no idea how formal this letter should be and other than the date and naming my dad and giving him permission to pick them up and signing it if there's anything else that i need to include in the letter.. if not then no worries but if there is something that i'm missing out on..

    hopefully this is in the right forum..

    My friend is picking mine up, and it's just a case of 'I will not be able to attend for results day (optional: as I will be away blah blah). I therefore give permission for <person> to pick up my results on my behalf.'

    That's all there is to it really.

    it doesnt have to be really formal, just a dated letter with your name, address, tutor/form number, and signature on stating that you give permission for your dad (write his full name as i think he will have to take ID with him) to collect your results. Make sure he takes ID to be safe as my school made people even parents take ID for GCSE and there was so much F'ing and blinding because they simply would not give them to them so better safe than sorry good luck!

    EDIT: I might also add that depending on what time you will be getting home, if you are concerned you might not meet your firm choice then to get your dad to open your results and have all your university numbers and clearing choice phone numbers with you incase you have to ring up to do some pleading because the lines will be chokka all day, and tbh the earlier you phone if all doesnt go to plan then the better off your chances are. If you dont want your dad to see first maybe try and get to a computer just to check track so at least you know your home and dry and can wait til later for your results. But if your not going to university no worries, was just a thought i had

    Just write a signed declaration giving your dad permission to pick up the results. Nothing fancy.

    I "blah blah" hereby give permission for my father, "Mr. B Blah" to collect my level results on my behalf.
    I was working on my A-level results day. I phoned my friend, he handed the phone to a teacher and i told the teacher he could pick up my results and it was all sorted.

    I think you have to write your candidate number down aswell - might be a good idea anyway incase your school do have any queries.
