10 Fears Every Student Has On Graduation Day
Graduation can be a daunting experience, especially if you’re not used to the limelight. Here are 10 very rational fears that affect us all before the big day:
1. I definitely got that grade, right?
The last thing you want at graduation is to find out you read the wrong person’s grade on results day. Good luck explaining that one to your parents.
2.This better not be a dream.
You’re at the finish line, or at least you think you are. Is any of this actually real?
3. I’m 99 percent sure I ordered my robe.
It’s the one thing standing between you and the graduation ceremony.
4.These heels better be comfortable.
A thought that crosses nearly every girl’s mind at some point during the day – can I stay upright in these?
5. I hope they say my name right.
You’ve spelt it phonetically for them on the graduation form, there is no way they can mess this up, right?
6. Do not let me have a bad hair day.
The photos of your graduation are likely to feature permanently on your parents’ mantelpiece for the foreseeable future, so you really have to look your best.
7.I hope I’m not sat by myself during the ceremony.
It’s times like this that make you wish you’d spoken to someone on your course, like ever. Especially the ones who have similar surnames.
8. Please do not stack it on stage.
You’ll never live it down. Just no.
9.This can’t be the end.
Yup, you’re still in denial. What even is life after university?
10. I don’t want to grow up.
It’s finally time to step out into the real world, where being a student is no longer a valid excuse for barely surviving.
