The End Of Yet Another Era

Well, I hope it’s the end anyway!

Today was the last exam for my A-levels, and let me tell you this. The exams I’ve had to sit this year were awful, so so awful. I think somebody said something mean about OCR and they just didn’t get over it, and instead of talking it out just took it all out on us Physics and Chemistry students. Edexcel were (Insert colourful word of choice here) too! As a user of twitter wrote about how we were given the formula for the area of a cone for something that resembled a car door!

How did it go?

Well… I don’t know. I really don’t and that bothers me far more than it should. I worked so hard to get these and get the grades needed for Uni, but I don’t think it’s enough. So I could well end up resitting so I can go to my preferred Uni. Some exams went OK, for instance the resits, for AS, I did weren’t horrendous, they weren’t nice but I think I did well enough, just went A2 started, I don’t know what happened. I struggled through AS sure, but everything started going downhill from the word go for A2. It would seem that I’m just going to have to wait until August to find out whether my worries were justified or just totally weren’t worth it. But that is too far away! So so far away, like August 14th or something like that.

Well I’ll just have to wait and see won’t I!

Just have to keep telling myself, even if my grades are so bad I can’t go to Uni, that it’s not the end of the world, one more year of college and I’ll get to go, so no big deal right? If that what it takes to go then I will have to do that.

But tonight! I’m celebrating the end of the exam series, and the end of my A-levels, because hell, I’ve work hard to get here, even if I don’t think my grades are going to be as good as I know they should be, but I’m celebrating tonight! Going to go out with some friends, crawl back to my friends house, he’s letting me crash there tonight, so all is well on that front.

I believe we’re all off to the beach tomorrow as well. That’ll be fun!

Cheers! It’s been fun, now let’s see about getting into Uni…. When I get back from the beach tomorrow of course!

Have a nice day!
