Life Update: Exam Results and Where I'm Going Next

Wednesday, 7 August 2013

So a few of you may already know this but I got my exam results yesterday. I'm very happy to announce that I got straight As. I still can't believe it! Thank you so much to everyone who tweeted me saying congratulations I really appreciate it! Just to explain to those who aren't from Scotland, I was sitting highers. Highers are the exam results that determine your university places, like A levels. So having straight As means that I'm pretty much good to apply for any of the courses I want to. I still haven't made up my mind but at the moment I'm thinking either chemical engineering or chemical physics, with Edinburgh University being my first choice.

But I still have one year left at school, so how am I going to be using it? At the moment I'm going to be doing advanced highers in chemistry, physics and maths. Advanced highers are worth a little bit more than A-levels and you can sometimes use them to skip to the second year of a university course. I don't really want to do that because I'd rather have the full university experience but it'll be useful anyway no doubt. I'm also volunteering as a teaching assistant in a 3rd year chemistry class. So far it's been quite the experience. Some of the kids are really great, and some of them scare me a bit but I've really enjoyed it so far. I'm really excited to start applying for university courses and just enjoy my last year at high school. It feels weird to be the top of the school. When I was younger I thought everyone was so grown up and cool and I definitely can't see younger pupils viewing me in such a way!

If you're also a Scottish teenager I hope you got awesome results!
