Chilled here. Well ds2 is; me not so much.

Does he have to go in to school to get them or will they be online? (No results here to worry about for a few years)

I was just thinking the same thing. Do they get sent to my DS for tomorrow morning or does he have to pick them up from school. Anyone?

Also, does he need particular results to do whatever he's doing next year? I can see if not, or if he's very confident of getting them that he might be chilled!

I have to pick mine up from the school tomorrow after 11, sad that at 41 I have just taken a French GCSE and am sooo nervous must be ten times worse if you are 16. Hope all goes well for your ds2 fingers crossed

They have to go in. He needs a B in both English Lit/Lang. Fingers crossed.

Ah, fingers crossed then!

Well dd is happy with her results. 2 x A*, 7 x A, 4 x B. A's include 2 for the double science course which she only started in Feb. when she found out she would need it for entry to her college course and when applying for medicine at Uni. So pleased for her.

Juuule those are fantastic results, she must be very proud. i got an A* in my one and that was stressful enough.

Well done, yourself, Prettypurple

Congrats everyone - especially the A*s.

Ds2 got 2 As, 7 B's and 4 C's. ( he didn't take 13 straight GCSEs BTW a couple of these are those combined thingys)

One of the C's was English Lit though so we need to see if it's OK for college. By the look of the breakdown of marks I think he may have just missed the B.

Hey well done all & especially those who've really worked hard for their grades. smbk hope the Eng Lit thing works out OK for your ds. 13 does sound a lot - what are combined thingies??

A double science and a BTEC snorkle. The BTEC suppose to be worth 4 GCSE's but I don't see it myself; the workload is nothing like.

Off to college later.

double science IS double the workload though smbk - no idea about the BTEC, but it still seems an impressive haul. Goodluck with the college, I'm about to disappear for a week, but hope they will be flexible.
