RESULTS NIGHT NOT 18

    Okay, so I turn 18 about 3 weeks after the results come out, but I still want to go out for results night (who doesn't lol). Thing is though I don't have ID. I have a provisional licence but it has my actual date of birth on it.

    For people who went out previous years, are they more lenient with ID on results night, or should I just not bother going out at all? I have some irrational fear of getting turned away for being underage. Would love to hear the experiences of people who have been in my situation, or anyone who goes out frequently.

    Thank you so much in advance

    Forbidden topics of discussion

    We unfortunately do sometimes find ourselves with a problem regarding some issues and no amount of warnings or requests to keep things civil in relation to certain issues have worked, so we simply don’t allow discussion or posting pictures of these things. The list below is by no means set in stone, we can add things to this as time goes by, so it may be no harm to check up on it every few months to see if it’s changed.

    Advice on how to get around the law is prohibited on this site! :p


    OP, from hearsay, they tend to be more vigilant re: ID on results night, not more lenient.

    They will probably be stricter the night of the results than most other nights exactly because they will be so many people in your situation. Not much you can do I am.afraid.

    Being perfectly honest with you it depends on what part of the country your in. Take for instance in my local town there are often 16/17 year old's out on any Saturday night. Same with grads mass/results night. What is your area like regarding getting served?
    However you'd find it a lot harder to get severed in a city/a supermarket.

    To be perfectly honest you need to know your local bars/clubs and they have to some knowledge of you as well.
