Congrats to those who have good news already. I'm under strict instructions not to wake DS up until 10am - results will be online thankfully! He said he doesn't want to be tired when dealing with the results, meanwhile I'm going crazy waiting...

10 am? That's just mean! DS said he didn't sleep at all last night.

DS got his first choice, think track updated about 7:42.
Thankfully DS was more confident than me so slept until just before the results went up.
He actually, unknowingly, has a lot of you guys to thank for all the help and guidance over the past 8/9 years.
To name but a few,

Sally-Anne (you are sadly missed)

And a special mention to Amber, who seems to have actually been able to leave the hotel California.
And of course, there are bound to be some I’ve missed.

I Thank you for everything, he got his dream at Merton College, in no small part down to your advice.

Now to start the whole ucas process again with DD.

SD.

Yes 10am, gave up waiting and went food shopping!
Have results now, they are better than expected and DS is very pleased, got into Leeds for CS - but apparently when he looked at track, it had confirmed his place at approx 4pm yesterday! So he could have put us out of our misery last night, if he had looked - although he said he preferred to get the actual results first.
Now he has to decide whether to go to Leeds or take his apprenticeship offer - I've advised him not to think about it today and just enjoy the relief.
Good luck to all today.

Congrats to your DS Cuddlermum! Actually don't blame him, the Unis were updating track yesterday but it was locked to the students until about 07.30 this morning :wink:

Congratulations and commiserations where felt. A levels can seem like such a terminal point but they are only the beginning, good luck to all your DC.

DD's results one down on predicted all round (as she pointed out, rather testily, the same overall % in Edexcel Eng. Lit. would have got her an A* :( ). Not an issue with regard to her place at Birmingham, although she thinks that her grades will put her out of the running for the internal internship she was intending to try for. However, the world will keep on spinning :).

Good to hear toadmum.
DS did similar, missed out on 2 a* but with grades that would have secured them in previous years. That said he didn’t stop smiling all day so can’t have been too bothered
