Our photographers have been across the region this morning to capture the important moment in many young people’s lives as they get ready to embark on their future as… adults! From jumping with joy to holding up your results in the obligatory photograph for your parents’ proud Facebook post, we hazard a guess at what is going through their heads – other than the daunting prospect of having to cook their own tea at uni. Can you live off microwavable pizzas?
5. 'How many times do I have to jump in the air'
Thank you sport mode! Camera burst means our photographer will catch you in the air in true High School Musical fashion but you've got to be in time with your fellow peers.

6. See it's not as easy as it looks!
Sometimes no matter how many times the photographer forces you to jump in the air, when there's a five of you it's a near impossible task to be perfectly in time.

7. First things first, you have to let your family/followers know
Whether you're delighted or disappointed the first thing you want to do is tell your parents and closest family members - or you want to stick it on Facebook (think of the likes)

8. Having a moment alone to take the plunge and open your results
It's a nerve wracking moment, you emotions could soar or plummet in the few seconds it takes to read your results. Sometimes you just want to head off and take a second alone, away from prying eyes, to open the envelop.
