In a bid to combat the feeling of dread most GCSE students are probably feeling about Results Day (Thursday 24th August), a number of big name brands are giving away free stuff to make the day a little bit brighter. Every cloud, eh?
Whether you're stressing out over opening your envelope, desperate to know whether you got into uni or trying very hard not to run a mile in the opposite direction, it's fair to say it's a pretty emotional time.
Which is where the freebies come in. Because there is something quite satisfying about free food, experiences and things - regardless of whether you're celebrating or commiserating. Actually, results day doesn't really even have to come into it; freebies are fun regardless of the reason why, right?
Every year, Nando's deliver the PERi-PERi goods and offer students a free starter or 1/4 chicken in return for flashing their GCSE results at the cashier. But that's not all - for the first time ever Nando's is taking their results day celebrations to the supermarkets where students can purchase a limited edition "Hot Marks" hot PERi-PERi 500g bottle. The bottles will be available in Sainsburys, Morrisons, Tesco, Asda, Co-op, and Iceland.
Sweet lovers, Las Iguanas is offering three free churros (with dulce de leche or chocolate dip) for all GCSE students on the 24th of August.

Those are the kind of results we're after!
