A-Level Results Day – the wait is finally over //
The wait is finally over. The last few weeks of counting down the days, briefly forgetting about it for a while and then being reminded by something or someone. Today, it is A-Level Results day. The day you find out whether you got what you hoped for and have to decide where you are heading. Exams are rubbish. Truly rubbish. All that pressure! But, I think the waiting for results bit is almost harder.
When you get past exams (and hopefully have passed exams! See what I did there!?), the waiting doesn’t stop. You then get the waiting to see if you get an interview, waiting to see if your offer is accepted on a house, waiting to see if that supper you put in the over turns out even vaguely edible. So much waiting.
But the waiting always comes to an end. A-Level Results day always arrive.
I won’t give you the schpeel about options and remaining calm. I am sure you all know that by now. It will be OK though. Genuinely. Whatever the results you will be fine. As I said in a previous blog, just yell “Plot Twist” and continue.
This year, for the second year running, boys have performed better than girls in their results. Breaking the historical trend of girls performing better. (Not just in A-Levels!) But, well done boys! A-Level results pass rates have dropped to their lowest level for 8 years but more than one in four A-levels were awarded an A or A* this year, the highest proportion in six years. Anyway, I am not going to quote statistics at you.
If you have got the grades you hoped for and have accepted your place at University. Let us know so that we can schedule your items to be delivered to your new home for the term. Or let us know as soon as you know.
If not, please embrace the wise words of Jeremy Clarkson’s Twitter feed “Don’t worry if your A Level grades aren’t any good. I got a C and 2 Us. And I’m sitting here deciding which of my Range Rovers to use today.”
If you decide to take a Gap Year, we offer a gap year service. So, again, just let us know.
