This morning, like most people my age, I sat in anticipation as I awaited on the exam board website to go live at 7am, so that I could find out my results. When a text came through into the group chat saying that the website had updated early, my stomach dropped and I didn't want to see my results at all. After a few minutes of contemplation and a rush of adrenaline, I clicked log in and my results appeared in front of my eyes.

Expecting the worst as I usually do, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw all of my AS and A2 results on the screen in front of me. I actually couldn't have been happier to be honest! I received two Bs and a C overall (although annoyingly I was only one mark off an A in English Lit) and I'm ecstatic! I would've been happy enough just passing all of my exams.

Then, another waiting game began. I had another hour before UCAS updated. Fortunately, UCAS also updated earlier than they stated on the website, and so a lot more confidently than I had logged in to see my results, I logged into UCAS to see that I had been accepted onto my firm choice course.

I'm very pleased to say that come September I will officially be a Media student.

I can't wait to see what the future holds now, although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't apprehensive. I'm quite nervous about starting a new course, making new friends, and of course, living with entirely new people. But that's life, right?

If you received your A Level results today, I hope you got the results that you wanted, and if you didn't, it isn't the end of the world. Also, good luck if you're getting your GCSE results next week!
