Yesterday, many teenagers found out where their future was headed, some were on the path to university, others were not as lucky, and some prepared themselves to enter the world of work.
Now I’m not at that stage yet, my turn is next summer. But yesterday I did find out my results for the first half of my college education, and personally, I disappointed myself.
Instead of moping around all day, I decided to do what I do best, doodle. So here is a mini comic if you like and a handwritten note. I noticed I am terrible at creating straight lines or writing legibly. Forgive me.
One thing I am thankful for is coursework. If coursework hadn’t existed, I would probably be getting DUU in my exams. I don’t fare well with exams, I tend to do better during the mock exams rather than the real one. Personally coursework is my lifesaver, if it weren’t for my A’s in coursework, my grades would have suffered and I could’ve been sent to a foreign country by my parents. Jokes aside, one thing I am frustrated at is the grade boundaries and also the fact that examiners were told to be extra harsh this year, a lot of people who did put in the time and effort into their studies didn’t get the grades they deserved. I know I didn’t put much effort into these grades, but I didn’t think in my wildest dreams that I could be THAT bad. So yes this is a major wake up call, it also shows me how I can’t rely on my predicted grades and I have to set the bar for myself. My predicted grades were a lot higher, so to be faced with CDD is pretty heartbreaking.
How did you do this year? Congratulations to the many of you who passed with flying colours! And my sympathy for those that are heartbroken. Never fear, we have our lives ahead of us, who knows what the future holds?
Thanks for stopping by today,
