    I hate those articles.

    "It was really good", said John, of St Peter's Grammar. "I worked really hard, and am pleased with the results".

    Glad someone is still capable of laughing this evening! Everyone seems to be in absolute panic mode with no time to be happy smiley.

    The vice principal rang me today to ask me if I wanted to go in at 8.45 for 'publicity'. I'm not sure what to make of that.

    Hahaha

    Norris, who scored the highest mark in biology for his exam board two years running, reported: "I feel good"

    Students believe a level exams are getting harder. Beyonce Smith and Britney Gallagher believe their UUU(respectively) grades were not a good indication of how intellectual they are.

    If I see any reporters I'll just make sure that I really make it clear that A Levels are not easier. I bet they wouldn't write that in their paper - it would go against the general mood of the press.

    Anyway, I can't think of exams anymore, I'm getting an early night
    Good luck to all and I'm sure I'll discover how everyone's done tmw.

    We're not allowed to go into school for our results... Odd - but apparently the press would be down on us like vultures, since we're supposed to have really good results at Westminster. And if it was some pro-Labour, anti-Public school paper, they would love to get some dirt on just one student, and then compare it to the best results of the local state schools and take everything out of context and twist everything just to suit their wonderful beliefs.

    And to think that I wanted to become a journalist a few years ago .
