    A-Level Results Day

    A-Levels are Advanced Levels. They are taken at 17/18 years of age in the last year of secondary (or 'high') school. What you get decides if you can go to university or not. It is the equivalent of graduating the senior year in the USA.

    Today is results day. Going to pick mine up at 10ish. I haven't applied to uni, so if I fail, I'll only cry a bit.

    Anybody else facing the terror?

    I will be getting mine today. It's 3:19am now, so I doubt I'll get mine before dinner.
    What courses did you take asheep_uk? I've done 2 year AVCE Art + Design and A2 Business Studies. I'm quietly confident that I've done well.

    (A) is an 'a' at A-level (full course)
    (a) is an 'a' at as-level (half the A-level course)
    (u) is unclassified - less than 30%

    CDD - bit pants, but better than I expected.

    Didn't apply to uni - going travelling. I leave on the 6th Sep, first stop: San Francisco!

    Wow, I wish I could go traveling

    San Fransisco looks amazing! What's the plan? I'd love to speak to you some time about where you plan to stay, how much it costs etc. It's all a bit daunting!

    Make sure you get plenty photos

    Ooh yes, lots of photos

    I'm going to make some sort of blog so friends and family can read what I'm up to. I don't usually keep one, but this seems appropriate.
