Ever seen one of those 'she loves me, she loves me not' flowers and pulling all the petals? If you imagine the petals as days, I'll be saying 'I passed, I definitely failed, I passed...'
But seriously, I didn't really worry about results day until the night before and just enjoyed my summer.
Finishing your exams
Slept for a very long time and had many taps. I had a mini breakdown in my final Physics exam (luckily I only had one exam after that, as the Physics one was the 13th out of 14.
A week later
Went to an end of year barbecue at school, was very sad to leave the place and was wondering if I would ever be happier than I felt in Year 13 at 6th form (yes, some people do enjoy 6th form!)
Enjoyed my holidays, went to Ireland and Japan. Nothing of interest happened.
Beginning of August
Still no sense of urgency. Nothing of interest happened. Enjoying my summer, not looking particularly forward to uni.
A few days before results
Slight panic sets in, but still not really nervous.
The day before
A strange sense of excitement. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get to sleep but ended up sleeping at a normal time. I didn't check the grade boundaries as I wasn't interested in them / forgot what kind of marks I was roughly expecting, and it would only have unsettled me.
The actual day.. in the morning, I was strongly debating whether to check track or not and I did, and I had got into my firm. So the bus ride was still tense and I remember my mum saying 'whatever you get, it's okay' which makes a real change from what she'd been saying for the whole two years!
This results day was also my birthday but made no difference to how I felt
but yes.. I'd do A-levels all over again if I could.
