Despite the fact that many people try to forget it, today is, once again, the annual ‘Student Doomsday’ (otherwise known as ‘A-Level Results Day.’)
Yes … today is the day where most students in the UK find out whether the past 2 years of blood, sweat and lots of tears (don’t lie) was worth it. I cannot help but remember the way I felt last year and I completely understand the pain and suffering that you all are enduring in these last 5.5 hours.
First of all, I want to say to all of you who are waiting for your results … well done. Completing A-Levels, despite what some people try to suggest, is no easy task. They are difficult, rigorous and really test what you are made of and I want to take the time and acknowledge that, regardless of what may happen. It probably sounds cheesy but I understand the anxiety that comes with waiting for these results.
However, please try not to think of it as the ‘be all’ and ‘end all’. Although, at the moment it seems quite unbelievable, there are many options out there for you – just take the time to find them. Last year I thought this article on ‘The Student Room’ was amazing for helping me prepare for results day, so do take a look if you are feeling really nervous.
Well, I hope you all try to get some sleep, not stalk the UCAS website in the early hours of the morning and attack the refresh button …
What am I saying?! Last year I tossed and turned all night and woke up at 6am to just sit there for 2 hours tweeting regular updates on how many times the website crashed!
Nonetheless, on a serious note, I wish you all the very best.
Good Luck! 🙂
