I finally got back my A Level results today and to be truthful, I have no idea as to whether I should be feeling happy or disappointed. I suppose with 88 out of the maximum of 90 university admission points, I should be glad that I did pretty ok, especially given the amount of effort I actually put in. On the other hand, I was really hoping I could get 4 H2 As and the B in economics was quite a blow to me (though not unexpected) since I really liked the subject and it was actually consistently my best subject in school examinations.
To those that did well: congratulations, you probably deserve it! And to those that didn’t do as well as they expected: your life isn’t just dependent on this piece of paper.
My second and third week of exams passed by rather uneventfully, save for a flash flood right outside our school just before our Physics Paper 2 – thank goodness I decided to arrive in school early that day.
And the papers were all pretty manageable, except for Economics Paper 2 (Essay Writing) and Chemistry Paper 1 (Multiple Choice). And now I am on my first day of a 6 days break before my next, as well as last, paper on November 30th.
Feeling pretty good now! (:
My desk have gone from this:
But it’s going back to its previous state soon. My A levels are in 40 days.
For now, I will just enjoy a tidy desk.
Recently I discovered this piece of great software (Mac-only) to help me focus on my studies while I am on my computer. It’s especially important now that I have taken to typing out my notes (which I find more effective than just plain reading and faster than writing them out). Featuring Concentrate from Roobasoft!

Speaking of which, my General Paper is tomorrow. Wish me the best of luck.
