Yep, just go and work for your dad's company like Jezza did.

If it helps, I got four A's, which meant something in 1994, when Oxbridge/medicine etc entry requirements were typically about ABB, and have achieved almost nothing of any note since :thumbl:

A level results not as expected, uni place missed, one distraught daughter.

Fuck.


Sorry to hear that. I suppose the plan is:

If it's possible to get on a very similar/nearly as appealing course, do that;

Otherwise, in the case of a borderline fail (one or at most two grades), go for the resit option.

Failing the above, need a rethink.

Junior completely fucked his up. He decided he was set to fail around the turn of the year and kind of gave up. He's still OK to do the one year course he wants to do next year, just hope it's a bit of a wake up call about his approach to shit; he's perfectly capable, just couldn't be bothered to make the effort.

FYI


Downloaded this yesterday after seeing it somewhere else and the words for the location of my sofa suggest I might well be sat there masturbating. Seems ideal.
