A lot of my younger mates are getting their results tomorrow. They're all nervous, one to the extent where vomit is involved.

So, as Mr Grandfather Finius I have this advice.

If it all goes tits up for you tomorrow. I want you to consider this.

My brother got one E at A-level. Just one. English Lit. That's it, nothing else, nada. He saw his careers advisor same day, who told him it was manual work or bust. He told the bloke to sod off and decided he'd had enough of other people telling him what he could or could not do with his life.

He's only 36, he's on six figures (has been for some time) and he does one of the coolest jobs in the country.

A-levels are important, but if you want something for yourself, you'll find a way, whether academia is your strong-point or not.

Let us know how you do!

(If you're not getting results, but know someone who is, feel free to pass the above story on, it's 100% legit non-chain-mail straight from the house of Finius).

If I told you what he did, men in suits and a van with blacked out windows might come for you ;)

Having a vague knowledge of what Finius thinks is cool from the forum, I'll hazard a guess...
He works with penguins. Who travels the globe.
He's a penguin zoo-ologist. :lol:


Yup, got my A2 results tomorrow. :unsure: :blink:

I was in Majorca when I got my GCSE results, a friend picked them up for me, then she phoned me and told me.
Was great sitting on the beach receiving my results! :)

Got my Masters dissertation in on Monday. Good luck to all those who are awaiting results. If you miss the required grade then call the uni or college, preferably in the office where you'll be going and explain. It's what I did and I got a D when I needed a B. They like initiative.

Nothing to do with penguins I'm afraid, the only way he could possibly be cooler than he is would be to work with penguins.

Good luck to everyone!

That was the most painful and stressful night of my life, not least because I picked up a bug and have been suffering from d&v :(

But...
4As, 1 B, I'm going to London :D
Cannot describe how happy I am
Hope everyone else did well!

You could do 5 subjects at A level? Your school must be enormous.

Or rather, must have been enormous. You're free now! :lol:

Mine still had upwards of 1500 students and I was only allowed to do 4 subjects maximum and even then they advised you drop one after AS to help with the work load.

Hahaha, no my school foundation is actually pretty small. My year group is the smallest in living history, 84 with me, and about 97 at the girls over the road.
Everyone drops their fourth, but takes on general studies. I hpwever, didn't.
It's simply because I didn't want to drop art or english, and pretty much fought tooth and nail to be allowed to continue it. Everyone usual had 14 free (sorry, 'study' :rolleyes: ) periods every cycle (2 weeks). I only had 6 in the 2 week cycle haha!

I might be free, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't going to miss it. The past 7 years - especially my last 2 - have been amazing.
If you'd have told me back in year 7 that I'd miss my school, I'd have laughed.
