AS Results

I realised I haven’t actually done a post on this yet so here I go. Just over a week ago, I received my AS results. Now, I did alright, really, considering, but I was so upset when I took the exams. Two out of three of them made me feel uncomfortable through reasons I couldn’t help. I think I’ve remarked before about how one invigilator made me feel uncomfortable and the other exam was really noisy and loads of people were outside it.

So, I got my results back, and I’d gotten a D in my creative writing exam (a C overall in both English exams — one was fine, the other was the loud and noisy exam). I was getting As throughout the year in creative writing so this made me really upset. I was happy with the C in English but I just couldn’t accept the D in that creative writing exam. Luckily, due to my grade A coursework in creative writing, overall I got a B. Although a B is really good, I am going to retake the exam because I know I can do better. The exam was awful because of how the invigilator made me feel and next time I’m getting my tutor to invigilate my exams, so that should be better. I just want my grades to add up. If I had been getting Bs throughout the year, maybe I would have accepted the D, but I was much more capable than a D.

I know I often talk down about myself and that, usually, I’d say “see, this D is my real ability” but I’m starting to see that I am alright. My grades show it; my coursework shows it, and I want to prove to myself that I can get another good grade in the exam. I can do it, which is why I’m going to retake. If I believe I can do it, then I’m already halfway there, aren’t I?

I’ve also been looking at a lot of results from fellow bloggers and gasping in awe at their GCSE results because mine were nowhere near as good! I’m so proud of you guys for your awesome results. 🙂

  1. Well done! I’m so proud of you! Don’t be too harsh on yourself, sometimes exams aren’t for everybody. I think you’re more of a coursework person than an exam person. But, it’s good that you’re retaking again so you can prove that you can do better. I’m sure you’ll do amazing ❤

  2. Don’t worry at all. Last year In As I got a U in chemistry and a D in psychology even though in one exam I got a high B ( in the other I got an E some how. I decided to do a 2 year course in a Year instead of chemistry and resist the unit I got an E on as well as doing my A2 exams. I managed to get a C overall and could have potentially got higher if I’d have revised more… Well memorised more. Don’t worry about it honestly. If I can manage to do that then you’ll be fine. I’m the laziest person ever

  3. Hey there, it sounds like you’ve done really well at AS level and I wish you luck for your A levels! I had lower grades in my first year of college as was rather distracted but could improve throughout the second year which has heavier weighting I think? You can do it 🙂
