    Overwhelmed. How....? The stress was worth it in the end. Though my best GCSE turned out to be English Lit, I got full UMS in both exams and the controlled assessment. I thought I'd messed up on the unseen poem and the OMAM. Surprised, but I could NOT BE HAPPIER!! My grandma cried when my mum told her :')
    A-levels - History, German, Maths and Geography, eventually hoping to either History or German & History at university

    Comments post results day: so pleased with my results! I genuinely thought I was going to get a C in Biology, BUT I GOT AN A! AND I GOT AN A IN MATHS :ahee:! I think my biggest achievement though, is the A in Chemistry - earlier this year I was a C/D student in Chemistry! Anyway, I'm so elated and I achieved one of the best results in my school, so that's another bonus!

    Plus I've missed a lot of school because of my mental health so I think I've done ****ing well taking that into consideration . SO HAPPY!

    There was also this guy interviewing me and my hair was frizzy as hell because of the rain :unimpressed:

    Okay. End of essay. So thrilled!

    What are you going to study for Alevels/Btechs/IB: English Literature, Philosophy, History of Art and Maths - but I'm taking a year out before sixth form because of said health issues

    Additional qualifications to be gained during Y12&13: Silver Arts Award (hopefully) and Extended Project

    I am not entirely happy with myself. I should have worked harder in the sciences, because to be honest I maybe slacked off a little with my revision. I was hoping for better, but this set isn't so bad so I'll live. Although, it looks like I will never make it into Medicine. Comparing to TSR standards these may not seem the best, but all that matters it that I worked for them
    Also, Biology is getting remarked as I was only 4 marks off an A It makes a hell of a difference if it goes up, but it probably won't.

    A* in Lang, lit, French, geography and RE (short course)
    A in History, business studies, applications of maths, methods in maths, science, additional science and citizenship (short course)

    Hoped for a couple more A*s in business and maths but I did get the highest overall mark in the year in geography and French so that's something to be proud of. Going on to study French, history, literature and economics.

    ICT - A* - A (getting remark, was 1 mark off A*... Raging!)

    A level subjects taking:
    ICT, History, Biology and Chemistry but chemistry may be changed to classics in the first week or so if I change my mind.

    Career/uni hopes:
    Hopefully university of Lincoln, or perhaps Northumbria, to do forensic science.

    Career plans either work in police forensics departments, would love to live in London if I could, or to do forensic computing for the police. Moving to England ASAP, I hate northern Ireland with a passion!

    comments on results:
    I'm happy, I got enough to get back into school for a level yay! But I'm not happy with my Ict mark, all year I never dropped below an A star then I came out of the exam with an A... I'm getting it remarked I was 1 or 2 off an A*, so fingers crossed!
