Project 365 #231: 190810 The Proof Of The Pudding
It's that time of year again!
Results day is always an emotional roller coaster. Some people do better than expected. They cry. Some people do worse than expected. They cry. We get through a lot of tissues. :)
Next week is weird, as we get our results only electronically so we don't have to do the big paper shuffle that we're used to, starting to empty envelopes like the one pictured from about 7:30. The GCSE results are also out on a Tuesday and not the traditional Thursday. Let's hope it all goes ok.
I see in the national news that unsurprisingly it's been yet another record year. The biggest disappointment though is that the super duper A* grade, designed to differentiate the absolute elite of A level candidates, has been awarded to a whopping 8% of candidates.
Wake up and smell the coffee guys - the exams need to be more difficult.
If you've received results today then I hope you've got what you wanted or needed and that you'll be having a happy evening. If not, rest assured the sun will still rise tomorrow. :)
