    Good luck to everyone collecting their results tomorrow. I hope you all achieve the grades you're after.

    For those of you who don't; I'm sure you'll feel the same disappointment and worry that I did when I opened my A-Level results and realised I'd missed both of my choice's requirements. I was gutted and thought everything would come crashing down around me.. however as it happened; I went through clearing.. got a place at a good university and met some amazing housemates (all joining through clearing) who have also gone on to achieve great things.

    Just remember that not getting into your first choice university isnt the end of the world. It will change your plans but you're smart, you can and will adapt. You'll continue to do well wherever you go to and whatever it is you want to get to.

    Even if you decide not to go to university, you can and will still do well if you're willing to work for it. I have friends and family who decided not to go to university and instead learnt a practical trade which now earns them more than most of the graduates their own age!

    Best of luck for tomorrow.
