GCSE results day

close

Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Good luck to everyone who’s going to pick up their GCSE results today! I really hope you get the grades you wanted – and don’t listen to all the stuff about them getting easier, they say it every year, so don’t let it lessen your sense of achievement. If you haven’t got quite what you wanted, don’t let it worry you too much – I’m sure you’ll find the right way forward for yourself, and be very successful in your own way in the long-run. And for those who did get what they wanted: Congratulations!

Yep, I do know they’re called GCSE’s, not GSCE’s, but I made a bit of a typo. So now ‘GSCE’ will live forever in the page’s URI. Well done me.
