    A LEVEL RESULTS


    So I didn't get the AAAB I was hoping for - I got ABCC instead:
    • A - History
    • B - English Literature
    • C - Classics
    • C - EPQ

    (It's rather funny; they're they same grades I got at AS, in the same subjects)

    Yeah I am rather annoyed I didn't get A* in history, but one of my papers (the Tudors) was 42/50, which was an A*.

    My resit paper for classics had no change, which is annoying me to no end. But I got an A on my Augustus paper, so at least there's some kindness there.

    And do I need to mention English?! After the prose exam I thought I was done for. And I maintained the B!!!!

    I got into Kings College London, not to do War Studies but History starting September 2018, so now I have a year to sort myself out
    Awesome results, I'm so proud! What're you going to be doing in your gap year?

    Ahh! Thank you
    I think it's mainly working and saving up for next year (and a summer course in Oxford that I want to attend) I've done a lot of travelling over the last 2 years, so I'm alright with it.

    So I have officially withdrawn my offer from KCL, and am going to reapply to other courses.

    I know I was rather lucky to be given an alternative offer from the uni given my A level results, but I didn't feel like it was for me. Which means I now have to try and get in contact with my tutor at Sixth Form and confirm what I need to do.

    Aww thanks, that's very kind
    And yeah, I thought that there's no point going somewhere which affects more than one area of what I want to do in later life.
