Hi guys, yesterday I went back to school to collect my A level results. I was a lot more nervous than I expected to be but I didn’t do too badly. When I got home I checked UCAS and saw that the offer that I had accepted for university had gone through and I had secured my place, however I don’t wish to go to university.
For the past two years I was very unsure about going to university and I wasn’t willing to spend a lot of time and money on something that I didn’t have my heart set on. Since finishing school over two months ago I have been working for my Mum’s business and I’ve honestly loved every second. It involves making things, taking pictures of products and also involves technology and online shops. I’m glad that I was persuaded to accept the university offer because it meant that if I did change my mind I would still have a place.
For a lot of people, most of my friends included, university is going to be great for starting their dream careers but for some people, working and earning money straight away is the best thing to do. I no longer wish to become a primary school teacher and would have no idea what course I’d study at university if I were to go.
I spent a lot of time over the past two years upset and hoping to leave sixth form and do something different but if I had left I wouldn’t have my A levels, I wouldn’t have the most amazing best friends that I have now and I definitely wouldn’t be the person I am today. I’m ready to experience different things and take any opportunities that are offered to me.
If you collected your A level results or will be collecting GCSE results soon then I hope you get the grades that you hoped for. But please remember that grades aren’t the be all and end all. There are plenty of incredibly successful people with no grades. There are lots of options available if you didn’t do as well as you hoped.
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you soon! Bye.
P.S. I didn’t want to put up a post without a picture so this is what I wore to collect my results.
