The disappearance of Tate00…
“Fall in love with the process and the results will follow.” - Bradley Whitford
Well, I haven’t updated this in a whileeee… so sorry guys (If anyone is still looking for this). So, I’m just gonna give an update of what’s happened in the past month, warts and all.
Starting with some good news – today I found out I got into the assessment centre stage of the IBM futures internship! While I haven’t got the placement (yet), I’m still really proud that I’ve got this far, especially since I thought that my initial application/ video interview was awful. Shows that I need to believe in myself more.
Where there’s good news there also has to be bad new unfortunately, I got my mock results back and when I said they were terrible, I mean they were terrible. In maths I got a D overall when I’m supposed to be aiming for an A. I knew I did terrible from when I did the exam, and it was really disheartening considering I sacrificed revision of my other subjects for it. However, I’m not gonna admit defeat just because I didn’t do well this time. I’m committed to get the A I want.
With economics, one went mediocre, the other not so much. If you’ve been reading earlier you know what happened with my second economics paper. I was super ill in the exam which lead me to completely freeze in the exam and not complete it. This led to me getting a B in one paper, and a U in the second. It’s something that I’ve got to live with unfortunately, and I hope that the same thing doesn’t happen in the real thing.
To end on a positive note, after thinking about it further, I’m glad that I decided to take a year out before uni. This is because I’m starting to discover what I actually want from a degree rather than what I think I want, and I know I would’ve regretted my choices. While I still want to do economics, I’ve now realised I DO NOT want to do a straight up economics degree at all. I’vd discovered through my a-levels that I like microeconomics much more than macro, and I’ve decided I’d much rather do an economics degree mixed with business/ finance. I’ve been looking at courses and the Business economics and finance degree at Loughborough caught my eye. I’ll keep you guys posted
