A-LEVEL RESULTS DAY!


I've been on twitter this morning listening to everyones results and got me thinking about when I got my results last year. It was the most stressful day ever so I thought i'd share my story and hopefully make some of you that got your required results feel a bit better/grateful. I got to sixth form and as soon as I saw my head of year I knew it was bad news. I couldn't get on to UCAS so I actually had no idea. I opened my results to find I was 10 points short of my 2nd choice so that was it! No university for Amy. But my head of year was like hmmm i'm sure you got a place at coventry but by this time the UCAS website was at a complete stand still! So next we phoned Coventry University to find out what was going on and whether I got in but the person on the other end of didn't know either !!! So by this time I was really worried, If i didn't have a place, would there be any clearing courses left ? My head of year then phoned Coventry to say it wasn't fair for me to be sat on results day not knowing if I had my place and thats when they confirmed I had a place. I was so happy! It was such an emotional day. The hardest part was I was actually going to V Festival that weekend and was actually getting the train to Chelmsford THAT DAY so I couldn't leave for Vfestival until I knew I had my university place. And now 1 year on, I've just passes my first year at Coventry, I love my course and I've made so many friends and the tutors are great, Going to Coventry, not getting points for Birmingham was probably the best outcome for me.

Aww hun, I really enjoyed reading this post and was great to hear that you got your place at Cov :) I'm at BCU and it's scary to think that I will be going into my last year and that I was in the position two years ago of not knowing if I had got my place or not.
