[wibble]

I'm more nervous than I was waiting for my own LC results.

MyCarsInBristol Sat 30-Jul-16 00:31:41

When are they out?

Next year here, and if this year is anything to go by I wont be getting too excited

Maryz Sat 30-Jul-16 00:40:38

17th of August for LC.

They get to the schools at 9ish, and then online from mid-day. But ds has hidden his PIN No so I can't find out until he deigns to tell me. Fecker.

May be wrong but l thought it was August 14th

Maryz Sat 30-Jul-16 00:58:19

14th is a sunday. They usually come out on a Wednesday so the CAO offers are the following Monday, so I think it's the 17th.

It's late - dd's was the 12th I think.

Waiting here too, Maryz, with the occasional sick feeling. Your post has resulted in a little stomach flip, and not in a good way!

Maryz Sat 30-Jul-16 01:17:53

Sorry blush

I'm feeling a bit pukey myself.

I keep saying "it doesn't matter, there are many, many ways to skin a cat/get on in life" but it's no fun this waiting lark.

I agree, Maryz, there are. Doesn't make it any easier, though. DC doesn't seem worried atm, though, whereas I have started the frantic "please God" repetitions alreadyconfusedAND I've another one coming up to LC! Bad time to have given up winecakechocolatesad

Maryz Sat 30-Jul-16 01:41:14

This is my third.

ds1 left school at 15. Though he did go back and get a FETAC qualification.

dd knew exactly what she wanted and how many points she needed - and she got them.

ds hasn't a fecking clue. Nor do I. Somewhere between 200 and 500 points. Ish. Probably [sigh]

WildIrishRose1 Sat 30-Jul-16 01:51:26

So, is DS your youngest? If so, a big wineto celebrate YOU surviving he school years! If not, an even biggerwinewink

Maryz Sat 30-Jul-16 01:55:08

Well yes grin

In fact, I could get straight A's in JC in any subject, and probably straight B'x in LC in any subject (apart from art and music). I've read every ReviseWise cover to cover.

I'm no longer a mother to children. I'm a general PA/taxi driver/bank manager/housekeeper to three grown adults [sigh]

WildIrishRose1 Sat 30-Jul-16 01:59:57

Indeed! I could help DC with Music and English, but I couldn't make head nor tail of Project Maths - my own abilities in this area being limited at best, non existent at worst.

Maryz Sat 30-Jul-16 02:14:33

Project maths [furious]angryhmm

Load of bollocks. Written to ensure that kids that are good at maths and bad at reading/written word problems can't even have the joy of being good at maths.

It's my pet hate, as a mathematician. Any maths question that includes the words "what is your opinion?" or "Do you think?" should be sent to the outer reaches of hell.

JC here and LC next year. She's already stressed about the year ahead. I might have to get intravenous valium for us both smile

MaisieDotes Sat 30-Jul-16 20:18:53

JC here.

I really don't mind how she got on- not that she knows that, of course grin

In fact I'm nearly hoping she hasn't breezed through it because she'll be too bloody complacent for the Leaving if she has.

So glad I'm not doing this though I wouldn't wish the ACT (US) drama I had with DD3 on anyone.

DramaAlpaca Tue 16-Aug-16 22:08:22

So results day is tomorrow.

DS seems fine, I'm the one that's nervous.

squoosh Tue 16-Aug-16 22:58:26

Good luck to all the kids getting the results! Memories grin

Is it all done online these days? <granny face>

In my day (1994) we had to trot up to the school to be given an envelope holding your results. I refused to open the envelope in front of my mother. The poor woman nearly combusted with impatience grin

DramaAlpaca Wed 17-Aug-16 00:11:26

They can turn up to school tomorrow morning, or get them online at noon.

DS will be going for the online option - he detested school & doesn't want to set foot in there ever again grin

middlings Wed 17-Aug-16 08:20:37

Good luck to them all today!

We turned up at school (1995) with the calculator and added up the points wrong. Mum and I nearly had heart failure as it looked like fish farming in Letterkenny was out of reach. Thankfully we'd missed one out and I spent the next four years drinking at Trinity grin

Let us know how they get on!

middlings Wed 17-Aug-16 08:21:35

I couldn't have waited til noon! I'd have been a basket case!

hollyisalovelyname Wed 17-Aug-16 09:33:56

MaryZ et al - hoping your dc get what they wished for in the LC today.

libertydoddle Wed 17-Aug-16 09:38:46

I am on edge waiting to hear how my sister got on. She should be at the school now....

WildIrishRose1 Wed 17-Aug-16 12:24:16

Fish farming in Letterkenny? Sounds interesting!grinI hope all the students get what they needed today. Good luck! star

DramaAlpaca Wed 17-Aug-16 12:29:15

I've been like a cat on hot bricks all morning, but DS finally called with his results. He's happy!!!

Hope everyone else's DC are happy too.
