Firstly, congratulations to everyone who got through A-Levels and completed their courses. You should be super proud of yourselves, genuinely. The thing about A-Level results is that soon they really won’t matter. Whatever you achieved, they will just help you get to the next step in life. Looking back now, my results (AAA) were the last thing on my mind the first day of university. They got me there and that was all that mattered.
A TV show called ‘Good Morning Britain’ went to the college I attended today to film students opening their results live on TV. For one guy in particular, it didn’t turn out the way he wanted. The internet instantly started roasting him and the comments I read about him were utterly abhorrent. He didn’t meet the grades to get into Cambridge and I can respect that this would be heart-breaking but their are positive lessons to be learnt through this.
Sometimes, things don’t always go your way but that is not the end of the world. The letters on the piece of paper don’t define your existence. As long as you fight hard to go forward and do what you want to do then that is okay.
A university is a university. A degree is a degree.
No matter where you study you will meet new friends and learn new things and that is the main thing. Results are just letters and how you perform in a pressure cooker of a room in two hours does not measure your intelligence. Exams are not a measure of your character or your wit or your personality. It is measure of what your brain could come up with in the heat of the moment.
So, if you’re sat there with letters you’re not happy with. Think positively, please.
If you’re going to uni then GET READY. You will have the time of your life and that is a promise. University is where you will truly build your character and become the person you truly want to be. Embrace the experience and embrace the journey.
