Your eyes open
23rd August 2012
Today is GCSE results day and I can’t believe that it has been 2 years since I received mine. I remember how sick I felt that morning. I was worried I hadn’t achieved BB in science and therefore I wouldn’t be able to go to the college of my choice. However, I did get the grades I wanted and I have just finished my two years at college.
Now I’m off to university and I can’t help but think how insignificant GCSE results feel. They seem pointless. They were useful for getting into college but now they mean nothing. Well, English and Maths will always be useful considering universities want you to have at least a B grade in both subjects (I got an A in both. Don’t ask how!). In all honesty, since I got my place at uni, A Levels now seem insignificant too. It’s strange really.
None the less, I hope everyone receiving their GCSE results today are happy with their results. I couldn’t imagine going back and studying so many subjects and sitting so many exams. Gosh, I even found 3 subjects hard to deal with at college. Let’s see if I can cope with one at uni.
Two weeks on Saturday I’m moving out and I haven’t done any packing. My room is still exactly the same as it always is and nothing is in boxes. I have never moved house before in my life so I don’t know how to go about packing. It just seems difficult to decide what to take as I can leave a lot of stuff at home. My room at home is a lot bigger than the one at uni will be so I only need to take the necessary things.
I say ‘necessary’ but I will be taking pointless things like my record collection. Or maybe I’ll just take a few records. I don’t have a record player so I can’t listen to them, but they do make lovely decorations for my room.
I’m going to keep myself busy for the next few weeks, just to keep my mind off things. I’m still feeling really nervous, but after talking to other people I know I am not alone.
P.S. I want to do a Q&A blog (or possibly video blog) so I would really appreciate it if you left me one or two questions for me to answer. I like answering questions so be creative. If you have ever wanted to find out something about me then now is your chance to ask. For all of you who ask questions I will link your blog in my next post. Thank you.
