I can't believe that it's been three years since I found out that I'd actually made it into Portsmouth University - which was surprising considering somehow I flunked my final exam and landed up with a lower grade than I'd hoped.
I opened my results on Results day and was convinced that with my c*ck up of an exam that my chance at university had well and truely disappeared.
I literally spent an hour refreshing the UCAS website praying I was wrong, which thankfully I was... I can't even imagine how different my life would have been had I landed up not going to university, let alone heading off to my second choice Winchester.
Univeristy has been some of the best, and worse, times of my life, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My only advice to people collecting their A Level results is that even if you don't get the grades you've hoped for, this doesn't neccessarily mean that univeristy won't happen for you. Celebrate the grades you do get, you'll have spent the last two years putting the work in!
