A-Level results day

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Good luck to everyone who’s going to pick up their A-Level and AS-Level results today – I hope you get the grades you wanted, but remember that it’s not the end of the world if you don’t. After all, if you’ve tried as hard as you were willing and the results haven’t come out in your favour, then whatever it is you wanted to do probably wasn’t for you anyway, and you just need to rethink your plans. If you have got what you wanted, then well done, and I’m very happy for you!

Now unfortunately, by the time this appears I’m going to be some considerable distance from my ‘pooter (about 1,100 miles by my calculation – yes, again, I’m positively jet-setting this month!), so I’m not going to be able to catch up with everybody 🙁 I will when I get back though… I haven’t forgotten you!
