Ferry across the Mersey

If you didn’t get a chance to see the blog entry I wrote yesterday morning (in a flurry of excitement), I have got my place at Liverpool John Moores University and as of September I will be studying Geography BSc. 😀
At 7.30am yesterday I logged on to my university application tracker and I found out that I had a place at the university. I was so happy that I screamed. I rang my mum and my dad, who were both at work, and I text Tyrone. I refreshed the screen a few times to make sure it wasn’t a mistake. Nope, I’d got into university.
Becky picked me up just before 9am and we went to college to pick our results up. I was feeling pretty relaxed knowing that my place was secure and what ever grades I had achieved didn’t really matter. I wouldn’t have to panic trying to convert my grades in to UCAS points.
In the end I got a B in ICT, a C in Geography and a D in Biology, which I am happy with. It’s a miracle I even passed biology as I failed the last exam. Fortunately my coursework must have been amazing because I got a B for it. I hated that coursework and it drove me insane. We had to plan an biological investigation and carry it out. I kept it simple but my write up was incredibly detailed and well researched. 😛
After getting our results, Becky and I went out for breakfast to celebrate. When I got home I found a welcome back from the university with a starter guide and a map of the city in it. My mum came home from work with a bottle of sparkling Rosé wine for me, as I’m not a big fan of champagne. Later on in the evening, my mum said that we should go out for a celebration meal, so we met up with Becky’s family and enjoyed a nice meal together. I got a bit tipsy but it’s not everyday you find out you’ve got in to university. 😉
So yes, I’m moving out of Shropshire and to the big city. I’m going to be living in the home of The Beatles! It’s going to be a very scary experience for me but I plan on blogging all of the way through. Now I’ve just got to go shopping and buy some essentials.
This all feels so weird!
