I just thought I’d share with you my GCSE results. After the most awful year of being poorly and being filled with stress and anxiety I can finally say the pain was worth it, as I am over the moon with my results. I was even poorly through exams – it was a pretty awful few weeks for me, but I got through them.
I have spent the last fair few weeks worrying and stressing over the actual results and even the day before results day I was panicking about whether I’d have the re sit maths – which would’ve been my biggest nightmare. Or whether I wouldn’t make it into college, but I DID IT!!!
My results were:
French, History, English Literature and RS – A
Maths, English Language, Biology and Chemistry – B
Drama and Physics – C
I came out of some of those exams crying, some I was happy with and some I was poorly before I even went in! But I came out in the end with a set of results that I couldn’t be happier with. I thought I had failed physics after the final exam I sat, but here I am, turns out making up stuff as you go along sometimes works! But I wouldn’t recommend that at all! I have exactly what I need for next year and the fact I got an A in 2 of the subjects I’m taking – Literature and RS makes me so happy!
I hope you guys got what you wanted, I know you would’ve all tried your best and I’m proud of each and every one of you. And, if you didn’t quite get what you wanted then don’t worry, that one piece of paper with a few letters on it DOES NOT decide your future. You’re all amazing and don’t you forget that. If you want to share what you got then feel free, but if not then I completely understand!
So guess who made it through all 24 of their exams and is finally free? That’s right – I did! Six weeks ago this started and I honestly thought it would never ever end. It got to half term and I still had 13 to go, but now they have all finished and I’m so relieved.
I no longer need to know how to work out the area of a triangle, how to say ‘i live in England’ in French, and most of all I no longer need to know the dates of history (Not that I really did anyway).
So this morning I did my final exam – Physics (not a highlight to end on, but at least they ended) – and I came out happier than ever, but I also felt so strange and have done all day. I feel I should be revising, making notes, watching youtube revision, but no. I no longer have to do anything like that. For the next god knows how many weeks, 10 is it? I can do absolutely nothing…until I get bored that is. And trust me it won’t be long before that happens.
I got home from my exam and decided to burn every single thing I needed or used for revision: books, past papers, revision cards. You name it, I most probably burnt it. The relief inside when I watched the last 2 years of my life turn into ashes was honestly the most amazing feeling ever.
However, today was the day my parcel of notebooks arrived for next year and I never knew three books of lined paper could make someone so happy! But these three did:
Anyway, sorry for rambling but I am over the moon that my summer has officially started! And you guys will be with me as I create so many memories before starting at college in September! However, I will be starting the summer watching youtube, sleeping and netflix!
