Hello everyone! It’s been a little while since I uploaded a blog post as I was on holiday and when I got back on Sunday, I’ve been working everyday and so I haven’t been able to write a blog post. But, today I do have enough time to talk about results. Last summer, before year 11, I had no idea what the year was going to bring so results day was a really important day for me and others. A lot of people have emailed asking about what grades I got and so fourth. But before I do that, i just want to make it clear that this blog post is in no way showing off or being rude but I like knowing other people’s results so I thought you would like to know mine as we are all nosey.
In biology and chemistry, I got a 6 which is a B in the old grade system. These two subjects were the first ones I saw on the sheet and when I received them with my friends, I was crying so much that I didn’t look at the other subjects as I was so happy that I passed let alone got a 6 in. In class and revision, I found both of these subjects very stressful to revise and I remember having a massive panic attack on the night before my chemistry exam. But on the morning, I just tried my best to stay calm. I would say for these subjects I put in a lot of hours for as I’m not naturally good at them so if I didn’t revise, I don’t think I would have passed so I guess the hard work payed off.
Weirdly enough, my grade for physics was a 7 (A). CRAZY! All my time at school, I have always hated physics and have never gotten along with the teachers as I used to play up in class. But when this year hit, I put my head down and worked my arse off even though I didn’t really understand it. Not going to lie, I think a bit of this grade is luck and I think knowing the equations for physics made most of the grade.
Since I was in primary school, history has always been one of my favourite subjects so the grade I got for this surprised me a little especially as I got an 8 (A*) in my mocks. In the real history exams, I got an 7 (A) which isn’t bad at all and I wasn’t too hugely disappointed about. For me, I think the Cold War content really brought my grade down as I found it really hard to revise and I didn’t find it very interesting. However, I’m not doing history for A Level so it doesn’t really matter at the end of the day.
Maths was a subject which I had no idea what I was going to get in my exams as it’s a very hit or miss thing for me. Although, it all worked out in the end with a 6 (B) which is good 🙂
I did fail one subject though and that was Spanish whoops. A few people in my class did fail due to the bad teaching as she was just an utter bitch to be honest which made us not give a crap about it haha so I got 3 (D) in it.
Right, English was another subject which surprised me. I got a 6 in English Language which is normally my stronger suit but instead, I got an 8 in English Literature?! That’s so weird haha. Oh, nearly forgot, I got a distinction in my English speaking.
I got a B in Business Studies and that’s good. I had no interest in the subject to be honest but it’s a good thing to have.
The most important subject for me was psychology which I got an A in!!! Yay! I’m going off to do psychology next year for A Levels at a different sixth form and for revisison, I worked my arse off so getting that A was amazing.
I hope you all had good results and that you were pleased with them. However if you didn’t, don’t worry as they are all just numbers on a sheet and won’t matter in a few years time.
