Thus said the Daily Mail, in the book of bullsh*t chapter 29.The Judge said:No offence but GCSEs and A-Levels are a mockery.
Exactly, it's difficult to do anything when you frankly don't give a damn about being there in the first place. GCSE's are pretty much something you have to do though and really the starting block for all other qualifications. I think one of the reasons i didn't revise (apart from my lazyness) is that i knew i could probably get away with it having always done pretty well in prior things and not having revised. In the end the only thing that let me down was my 'D' in French which was a subject i sucked at so much i was amazed i even got a 'D', otherwise i got a pretty even amount of 'A's 'B's ands 'C'sMangaminx said:I never really particularly cared about my A/AS levels, just did the minimal amount of work possible , and managed to just about pass without revising. I didn't really have any desire to go to univercity , it was more a case of family pressure that they were important so I had to do them. Unfortunately that made me put less effort in as I never wanted to be there.
I actually didn't take the A-Levels that long ago. I did well as did all my friends and peers. They were simply too easy in my honest opinion. I am not a genius by any means nor are a lot of people I know and yet we all did damn well. I just don't feel that they hold as much value because of this. Obviously I wouldn't be where I am without them but that still doesn't add to their relative value to my own standards simply because of that. All national exams are important in some respect or another but in my own eyes they have been devalued. And I'm sorry but what has happened to the curriculum? Some of the subjects on offer are an absolute joke.Red XIII said:The Judge, I suspect it's easy for you to say that because GCSE's and A-Levels are behind you and now seem in the past and unimportant. They're in the past for me as well, and obviously seem quite distant compared to finals, but even so if I hadn't got the grades that I did back then, I wouldn't even be here right now.
Sorry if this seems a little harsh, just put it down to the stress of revision.
I rally hate Royal Mail, they're always losing stuff I win on Ebay. I then have to wait ages to get a refund from the person I won the item from. :evil:Mangaminx said:today I may well play "Kill Royal Mail for being so useless at delivering anything on time"
