So today I found my GCSE results and it hit me hard.. I do take complete blame for my grades, as I'm the type of person not to try throughout the whole year up until my actual exams which never came.. I didn't necessarily fail anything just got a majority of 5's a 4 and like three 6's. In reality this isn't great as it limits the subjects I can pick to a very small amount, I initially wanted to do Maths, Economics and History but I unfortunately cannot. The moment I saw my grades I was in a state of shock and the look on my parents faces, them having to lie to relatives due to shame and just complete helplessness for myself. Before my mum saw my grades she had a huge smile which quickly switched to disbelief.. That was such a hard moment for me and I cant get it off my head, I was supposed to be the one to provide for my family but I'm just a failure. I'm slipping into depression due to the feeling of having no future I wish someone could help me.

Your grades absolutely do not define you and there are still so many things you can do. You should speak to your head of year at your school and ask for advice, or speak to a careers person about the different paths you can take.

Don't be upset, please. Remember we didn't take these exams.
