A Level Results Day!!!

After waiting for sooooooooooooo long on Thursday 15th August 2013 I finally received my A Level results. This results day wasn't the same as others. This results day was extremely important as I was finding out what university I would be going to in September. Especially the night before, I was so so nervous but the day arrived..... I logged into UCAS Track at 7:30 am and discovered that I got into my firm choice the University of Surrey!!!!

I was extremely excited when I saw this as I REALLY wanted to go to Surrey. The campus is beautiful and the university is now 2nd in the Guardian League Table for Economics above universities such as LSE, Cambridge and UCL. I'm so relieved that all this stress is over. Literally, I spent half of my summer worrying about results day and now it's come and gone just like that. This post is a bit late but I have exactly a month left before I move in. I have so much shopping to do and prep in this space of time but surprisingly I'm really relaxed. It's quite daunting the idea of moving away from home. I question myself sometimes if I'll be able to cope but I guess this is all part of growing up.

In relation to my career progression, these were my A Level results:

Economics: A
Government and Politics: B
Maths: B

I will not even lie, in comparison to the expectations I had for myself when I started my blog and what I thought I would get I am WAYYYY off. I'm very grateful for my results but I do feel like I could have done better especially in Maths. These results do affect the events and programmes I can attend at banks. Luckily for me a lot of insight days and internships require the minimum of 300-320 UCAS points. I have managed to get 320 UCAS points which is good but not so good in certain circumstances. I really haven't let this bring me down. I guess the most important thing for me to do now is get a First Class Honors Degree in Economics by 2017. In the next four years I aim to attend insight days, a spring insight week, gain an internship and get myself onto a graduate programme. One reason why I love my degree structure is because I get a year out after my second year to complete a placement. I'm really excited for that part because it really determines whether or not I can get a job right after I graduate which is the ideal plan.

So as you can see my blog is leaving the A Level chapter and entering a university one. I began this blog at the beginning of my A-Levels and as you can see I have progressed and made it into university. I'm really excited to embark on my next journey and perhaps the blog posts may be more frequent because I'm eligible for a lot more opportunities now!!
