Yesterday was a big day. It was results day for GCSEs, as you can probably guess I, alongside many other people, was very nervous. I was awake at 5:00 in the morning and to pass time I watched Doctor Who. But finally the time came, it was 9:00 and I was walking into school, I felt pretty sick and I just wanted it to be over.
I picked up my results and went to stand with a couple of my friends to open them. I think by the time I started to open the envelope containing my results my hands were shaking. And then I took my first look at that piece of paper that was going to tell me whether my hard work had paid off or not.
I cannot even begin to tell you the relief that swept over me when I saw that piece of paper. I had got the grades I needed and to be honest I do not think that I could have done better with all the extra curricular activities that I take part in.
The result that I was proudest of was my Geography. I didn’t expect an A after what had happened in my mocks previously, in which I got a D. I think that my mock result inspired me to do better because I liked the subject and my teacher and I didn’t want to let my teacher down by failing the exam.
I think all my grades were well deserved and I’m not disappointed in any of them. I hope anyone who happens to read this who received either the A level or GCSE grades this week got what they wanted and I wish everyone the best of luck with what they decide to do in the future.
