Is the A-Level results the deciding factor as to whether you hold a shovel or a pen the rest of your life? I know in Austria they have what is called the Matura that is basically the "in or your out the rest of your life exam..." Anyway, good luck.
Called up first Uni choice...."Yes your confirmation letter is in the post. Congratulations"
My yaw drops....I have got into UMIST (University Manchester Institute of Science and Technology) WOW, OMG. I cant believe it.
Wicked, I am happy now.
Note for Non Brits: A Levels are like the IB, they are the evaluation of 2 years of study. They are essay, short answer and in some papers multiple guess based. It is possible to repeat each paper once. In comparison to the US SAT, it is vastly different. I am not sure of the difference in difficultly as they are completely different stlyes of paper.
They also take a hell of a lot longer to mark than either the IB or the SAT. This means more STRESS. Arrgghh
Yup, nice one. Same thing happened to me. Tho I won't say my results... bit of an upperclass lad at a school more expensive than Eaton and my results were crap... heh. Got me where I needed to go tho... I was slightly below my required number of UCAS points and still managed to get in, there is always clearing too to get all teh courses filled up.
Congratulations. Manchester has some fine night clubs.
Thats all that matters.
