Ok, so I managed to book my first driving test on the same day as A-level results day, thinking that results came out on the 13th rather than the 20th....s***. I'm either going to have a totally amazing day on the 20th, or the cruddiest one for quite a long time! Has anyone ever done the same thing? Any advice?
That's brave, as you'll be so pleased with your results, that your concentration may be a bit off! I'm taking it the test is after results?
personally, i'd try and cancel it. whether my test was before or after my results, there would be no way that i would be able to fully concerntrate on it. and if it's after and you don't do as well as you hoped, then i'd have thought a driving test would be the last thing you want to do, and the result of doing it may make your day even worse..
i'm sure it's okay to cancel this far before it, and hopefully get a full refund, especially if you explain everything.
No, other way around...Test at 9.37 and then results.
I got my Alevel results and then went and Gave blood... I passed out even after a cookie and a drink! bouns tho I was resued by a hot guy!
Something worth thinking about is that, after the driving test, it is normally advised that you do not drive the car back home yourself, but that your instructor does it for you, regardless of the decision, due to the emotion of the result affecting your drive home. It could be said that doing your test on A-level results day could have arguably the same effect... But otherwise, good luck, brave one!
That's going to be a mighty stressful day. You'll be worrying about both, first thing in the morning and you'll struggle to concentrate. I personally couldn't imagine trying to do anything else before finding out results.
Actually, why don't you go on UCAS first thing in the morning on that day? It'll tell you whether you got into your uni before you do your test - at least that gets rid of one thing to worry about.
Surprisingly I'm actually more worried about my driving test than results! Partly because I'm taking a gap year so not as much is riding on results (the drama courses I'm going for next year require two passes at A-level to get in), and partly because I should do well in my results.
In answer to thos asking why I don't simply cancel my test...I don't want to have to wait another few weeks to take it. I need to be driving asap in order to get work experience during my gap year, and have most of july and august doing various things and so don't really have a time that I could re-arrange it for.
