Results day: One of the most stressful days for you which AREN'T exams. It's something we all have to go through, where it be through the post or with all of your school mates. But the day doesn't have to be that scary. After all, nobody is going to ask you what result you got in Spanish 30 years down the line!
The best thing to do is to think over how you actually did in your exams. Did it go the way you wanted? Was it difficult or easier? What do you want from your results? What can you expect to receive, given how the exams went? The main thing is to not be disappointed with the result in an exam where you know you didn't revise, or that you messed up in one way or another.
Another thing to keep in mind is your expected grades. Don't always believe what others want you to achieve, but keep in mind what you are able to do and don't get bogged down when seeing others grades: you can only do as well as you are able to!
Make sure to focus on the positive side of things when receiving your results, such as going out for a celebratory meal or going for a shopping spree. You've got to give yourself a pat on the back for all the hard work (hopefully) you put in to revision and exams! I will also collect my results this year, and I've already planned a celebration with my immediate family, as then I have something to look forward too instead of only concentrating on the results!
Don't panic! You can retake English and maths in college if it doesn't quite go your way this time!
