I woke up this morning feeling really down. Our local newspaper had printed an article about last week’s GCSE Results. After reading that article, mum looked at me and said “Those students worked so hard, you could have done better.
That was like a kick in the teeth. I couldn’t help what sets I was in for certain subjects and I could only get certain grades. At the end of the day I passed all my GCSE’s. Some may have not been good passes, but getting D’s & E’s are better than getting a U (unclassified). So what’s she talking about?
Last week I received a letter from the college saying a taxi had been arranged to pick me up on Monday. I thought this was weird because I sent them a slip saying I wouldn’t be attending the course and explained my reasons why. Obviously they don’t read their mail!
I spoke to someone at the college who said I should’ve rung on Results day. I know I should’ve but I was so excited the thought never entered my head. I explained that I wouldn’t be attending the course and I would be returning to school instead.
The college rung AGAIN this morning. They wanted my GCSE results urgently. At this point I got really frustrated with the college. I just wish they would accept my decision, quit pestering me and leave me be. Also I will have to ring the taxi office to confirm the taxi has been cancelled. I expect it will turn up on Monday, though.
I don’t know when I am starting school. I think we return with the first year on Tuesday but some people say Wednesday. I have an interview with the Head of Sixth Form, Mr. G on Tuesday afternoon to discuss Year 12 and my options but I’m not sure of the time, LOL!
I haven’t been officially accepted back yet. But if they weren’t going to accept me, they would have held the meeting earlier?
I’m so confused think my head will explode!
Thank you Lyn for the Snoopy siggy xx
