I am not sure which has been worse; the run up to the exams or waiting for the results! I too have been promoting our local comps, but to no avail. I decided not to tell him when the results are out (we are OOC and applying for boarding), so that he could carry on in blissful ignorance. Unfortunately my plans were scupper end by another student at school who told him the results date.
I am not sure how to break it to him if the news is not good and am concerned about how he will cope. So much pressure for our DC's and us DP's too.
My usually beautiful nails are in a terrible state, and sleep seems to be a thing if the past.
At least there is not too much longer to wait now. Although we have to wait for the unreliable postal service to deliver the news, so I am not expecting his results to arrive before 14th. At least I arrive home before my DS on a Monday so should be able to open them in secret then prepare myself to deliver the news, be it good or bad.
