It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, and let me just say, this is the perfect timing! My final A Level results are hours away, and here I am at 3 AM not knowing what to think, what to expect, what to do other than feel my heart fluttering. ✨ ✨✨✨✨
So let’s start off with addressing the elephant in the room. 🐘
These A Level results will be historic, and quite frankly legendary. This will be the first (and hopefully last) time results are being handed out without giving THE ACTUAL EXAM. So my results are actually predicted grades that teachers just HOPED I would get in the end. 😬
Which leaves us with two possibilities. 1) The exam boards are lenient and hands out everybody’s expected grades, making it easier to get As and A*s and effectively decreasing the value of them or 2) The exam boards not giving a you-know-what and making it harder to achieve As and A*s.
But hey, this is a STRESS FREE zone. 💕And as much as I’m lying about not being even a teeny weeny bit stressed, I think it’s important to realize that these results are being conducted in the most confusing and unprecedented time in nearly a century. It’s completely normal to feel nervous, but just know that everyone did their best to satisfy everyone. The exam boards, teachers, students, and you. 🙂
I think more than ever before, exam boards are beginning to realize that final exams are not an indicator of anyone’s achievements. Some students work really hard all year but don’t get what they wants, while others are laid-back before the finals and wow everyone.
The real key is consistency. And I predict that final exams will eventually be devalued as schools look upon a students overall performance throughout the year.
But alas, I can also predict with 110% confidence that I will still be awake a few hours from now. 😂
So what do you think? Are you nervous for results? Excited? Intrigued to see how these turn out? And what about A Levels in general? Do you think they are an outdated way to measure students academics?
I’ll see you all in a couple hours, hopefully with my final results ready to share, God Willing! Until then, stay safe, and keep smiling! 🙂
