    Considering I don't plan on doing any postgraduate study (but I'm not ruling it out either), then I'm 100% confident because I already have.

    However career ambitions are bit more uncertain.

    I was a bit of a fool in my younger days, and didn't work at all. So I consider myself a failure in that sense.

    However, I do hope to turn it all around in the next 4 years.

    Yeah most likely. Unless I suddenly get hooked on something which damages my brain in a way that means I hate studying, reading, listening and/or concentrating for a few moments and am also physically incapable of getting out of bed. Seriously though, I hope so, but I don't have enough self-pity in order to doubt that I would succeed.

    What's the answer? :teeth:

    I'm able to achieve anything I want to, but it all depends on motivation (which I lack atm) and laziness tbh.

    At least over 9000, I think.

    I am quite confident that I will reach my aims, though I am not ruling out that things change~
    I have my aims set and I will do my very best.

    I don't have aims. In secondary school I was predicted A*s and As across the range and came away with 5As, 6Bs a C and a D. My friends were shocked when I only took one academic subject in college (a rubbish academic subject at that: Philosophy ) and the rest art subjects. I'm now looking to do a degree in Photography purely because that's the only thing I think I am relatively good at. Well, no, my talent is making anything you like out of rubbish, but that won't get me anywhere will it? Photography isn't much better but at least I'm starting to get shoot offers from friends so the word about me is getting out :p:

    I'm just gunna see how it goes.

    Well for A-Levels I want 3 A's. I'm confident that I'll get into Uni but one of my exams didn't go as good as I hoped so maybe I won't get my 'dream' grade of an A but at least I'll still get into Uni.

    After that I want a 1st in Eng Lit and then move on to do a Masters at Harvard/Yale, Oxbridge or Bristol....haven't decided yet

    I think the only way I will achieve my academic ambitions is if I return to Australia.

    Anybody who says these new 14-19 Diplomas are good are sadly wrong, I wouldn't give them the time of day... why? Because I'm doing one and it's the biggest load of ******* ******** under the sun imagineable.

    What were they?
    Essentially, just to get to the university of my choice to study something I was passionate about. Everything beforehand just led up to that, and my time at university was just about making the most of it.

    Well I only got a 2.1 despite working really hard and aiming for a first so I guess I failed. Oh well.
