    I don't understand why the system is different in English schools. In Scotland all pupils are posted their results by SQA so no need to go into school. They also have the option to have results texted to them, which arrive, I think, at 8 a.m., before most post has arrived. But, they still receive certificates by post too.

    Results could always be posted to students (when I was working, anyway), but certificates had to be collected & signed for in person...they normally didn't arrive until later in the autumn anyway.

    It's the certificates which arrive by post on results day in Scotland.

    I always think it odd. Going to school? But mine was 15 miles away. Why the hell would I do that? Loads of girls lived further away than that. Why would you?

    And any self-respecting teacher is on holiday! That includes time spent in your back garden reading a trashy thriller. Holiday.

    I don't remember but I'm sure my teachers at A level bade me farewell in July in a courteous fashion and wished me well for the future. Their work was concluded.

    Of course, when I wanted to take Classical Greek a year later after dropping out of uni I just wrote to Miss Pope and asked her to teach me and she did on Saturdays. For nothing.
