Emma has been doing work experience with GetMyFirstJob this Summer. This is her experience of GCSE Results Day.

The Night Before Results Day 

GCSE results day was one of the most unnerving and frightening experiences I have ever had. 

After my exams were over I quickly forgot about them, putting results to the back of my mind. That is until reality hit that it was only a day before we got our results. I gave my friends an hourly countdown the night before (it was not appreciated). It was hard not to think of the possibility of receiving a piece of paper that confirmed your fear of failing.

After all of the panic and stress, it was finally time to get the results. I met with my two closest friends to go in together, as soon as we got the envelopes we ran away from the big group of eager students and nosey teachers!
