    Students in the UK receive their GCSE results in 10 hours. Its 1am, and we can start collecting them at 11am in London.

    Good luck to all of you, and i hope you get the grades you need and deserve.
    I'll post my results when i get them.

    They don't have any Macs in my school. Actually, they have a few G3's in the Media rooms, but they don't work that well. My school is in London.

    Only extra-time people can (I found it VERY tough to keep up note-taking before I was allowed)

    it seems like it would be easier to take notes with paper and pencil.

    I don't take the GCSE's since I live in the US, but good luck to all that are taking it.

    Well at least you bought your laptop.

    Now that I work at the school in the summer I hear all the gossip. Apparently some Special Education Student's parents sued the school so that their "special" kid could have a laptop, a usb flash drive, and not 1, not 2, but THREE printers for only him to use. I don't know what the judge was smoking or if the school just gave in before it went to court but the parents won the case.

    I'm not saying or thinking you're sped but I just felt like telling that story.

    Because of the modular structure of A levels (and the fact that you can resit as often as you like) they are actually much easier than you would expect. Thats not to say they're still not a challenge though.
