    So for the first time in 32 years (as I'm sure you've all heard by now) the pass rate at A Levels has dropped due to the idiot which is Michael Gove and his January exam policy.

    I know a lot of people who haven't done as well as they thought they would so I thought I would make this thread to highlight some things that are way more important than your A Level results. Everyone submit their own lists!

    My list:
    • Seeing friends
    • Seeing family
    • Maintaining your physical health
    • Maintaining your mental Health
    • Being a nice person
    • Getting enough sleep
    • Treating yourself
    • Understanding that feeling sad for a bit is fine
    • Being able to get back up on your feet
    • Looking after your pet dachshund (that one is perhaps a bit specific to me :P)

    I didn't get the grades I needed last year for my preferred University but have had a brilliant year at my insurance choice and can't imagine being anywhere else now.

    Very few of them shall matter, when one is on Jobseeker's allowance, because they failed their A Levels and didn't get to university. Education is life.
