To all those that saw my post earlier and commented on it, thank you all so much for your well wishes and support. You have no idea how much it means to me to see that!
Anyhow, those dreaded Leaving Certificate results are in and I must say, I couldn't be happier with my results! I really exceeded my expectations for myself today, which is seriously awesome!!
So I do exams and they're marked and graded and returned to us. Here in Ireland, we have quite an unusual system, in which each grade is appointed a certain number of points. These points are what are used in determining your college courses. Grades go A1, A2, B1, B2, B3 and so on until D3, And then the fail marks.. It's a fairly strange system in terms of examining, but it seems to work here.
( The Results, so you can skip straight to them :)Collapse )
As I said before I couldn't be any more thrilled with my results. I've hopefully gotten exactly the amount I needed, which is thrilling! I was convinced I'd failed Maths and Irish and that my exams were a shambles. But apparently the powers that be are feeling generous right now. Lets just hope they still feel generous come Monday.......
