Opening My A-Level Results On Camera – [Live Reaction]

August, 19, 2016

Results day was, without hesitation, the worst day of my life. As you’ll see in my video below, I went from rock bottom, to cloud 9, to rock bottom again. There were more tears in my video than Niagara Falls – no joke.

I chose to open my A Level Results on camera because I know myself – in the build up to results day, I am glued to YouTube watching other people’s results videos to calm my nerves. So, I thought I would share my experience with other people.

Here’s me opening my A-Level results on camera… warning, there is *some* swearing 0.0

In the end, after being rejected from both my firm and insurance choice Universities, my firm choice Uni offered me a place on an alternative course.

To prepare for results day, coming from someone who had the worst experience possible – just try not to panic. Prepare for a stressful day mentally and physically. I’d suggest in the weeks building up to results day, search around other Universities for the course you want to do just in case, like me, both your firm and insurance choice reject you: this will make clearing stress free.

Remember, one way or another, if you know you’ve worked hard, in the end it’ll all work out for the best.

Comment below with the link if you made any similar reaction videos! How did results day go for you?

    AAC is amazing! Well done, I’m so surprised that you were rejected with those grades – you’re right ucas points wise it’s better than what your insurance choice wanted… out of interest did you speak to York and see what their reasoning was for rejecting you? Glad you got offered a place at York on a different course though – all the best x

    I think…it’s a good idea to study so we don’t get nervous to open an envelope

    “What does this mean?” Literally my whole thoughts whilst reading my results. AAC IS AWESOME!!!!! Should be really proud of that and well done for getting on a different course at York. This is a brave thing to do, I could defiantly not post my reaction like this!!!!

    In the UK, 40% of the opinions are made by student society. We have a right to talk as well as everyone.

    Universities are funny, very confusing and create a very stressful especially leading up to results day. AAC is amazing, I got into my first choice so I can’t really relate to anyone who hasn’t, but A-levels are way too hard I think. Especially with marking, with creative subject most of all. Either way everyone should be proud, there are different routes and journeys… Positivity is the key!

    You done so well! I’m sure you will get into a good university with grades like that! Especially with your work ethic. Hope you found a placement! 🙂

    It is a horrible feeling knowing you have worked so hard and not achieved what you wanted to but sometimes it is for the best and now you might enjoy the course you have been given by York more hen the other just keep an open mind. By the way your result were really good well done!!! ☺️

    I can’t believe you didn’t get in with AAC, I can’t imagine enough other people getting higher than you to fill the spaces for uni! Good luck on finding somewhere to go, I hope you work something out☺️

    Bless your heart, university clearly means so much to you. So happy for you still getting into York, despite it being a different course, hopefully its not too dissimilar to that which you wanted. Enjoy x
