My ds is really suffering from worry and anxiety over the results.

Anyone else got this?

My DD refused to open her envelope for 36 hours but when she did her results were good. ( (AS levels).

What's so terrible if he doesn't get the results he wants?
Pah, I hate the English system.

DD had this last week prior to A-level results. I'm assuming you're talking about GCSE results tomorrow? She has anxiety anyway, so we're kind of used to it. But I just made myself available to her, let her do what she needed to do, let things go a little in terms of any nagging etc, distracted with a film, TV, even looking through old photos at one point - whatever worked. Told her there wasn't much I could say as although it really didn't matter, she'd still feel nervous and it's normal to feel that way.

Good luck tomorrow! flowers
