Originally I wasn't gonna do one of these posts, I was just going to include a bit about results day in my 'Week In Photos' next Monday. However, I know a lot of you on Twitter were in to the whole 'results' chat in earlier days so I figured I'd do one for those who don't chat to me on Twitter (@aisforaylablog).
If you're a foreign reader, or your from the UK but have been hiding under a rock recently, 'Results Day' for GCSE students (age 16) was on the 22nd June. The grades determine what you go on to do at college or whatever. I came out with 2A* 8A 2B. As weird as it sounds, I was happiest about getting an E in my Physics module 3. You're probably thinking "whaaaat?!" but I feel as though its a sort of "you cant go through school without getting a detention" kinda thing, "you cant go through high school without having an epic fail result". We had a good laugh about it, I'll probably still laugh in a few years. I have a feeling my results aren't accurate though. In fact I'm 99% sure they've undermarked my French by around 3-5 raw marks, and I'm only 4 UMS away from an A*. I'm getting a few remarks. It's not ideal but It can't be helped.
I'm off to a sixth form now. Again for those who aren't familiar with the British school system, a Sixth Form is like an extension of school, but you sit your A Levels there, rather than at a college. I'm in the process of collecting all my uniform and stationary, I may do a post if I can find the time and natural light. I'm pretty happy to be moving away from those I went to high school with - time for a change! Although I'm not looking forward to spending 4 hours a day on a bus! Oh and switching to an ugly tie, I want my year 11 one back!:(
Well done to all those who got their GCSE results, and A Levels too! I'm sure you all did wonderfully!
