6 years of my life for this piece of paper

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.

Almost at the end (:

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! (:
