8 Thoughts Final Year Students Have Waiting For Results Day
The exams are done and the essays are submitted. Now it’s time to endure the long wait to results day.
1. “I am so going to fail”
All things point to success (or at least you hope they do) but yet you still can’t shift the feeling that you’re going to fail. Even if it’s only for a few seconds, you’re convinced you’re on the road to disappointment.
2. “I’m really hoping my parents don’t ask how I’ve done. Maybe they’ll forget?”
Whether you admit it or not, you want your parents approval. However, you may need to come to terms with the fact that parents don’t forget anything, especially not the final mark of your degree.
3. “Am I sure that’s what I got? Maybe I should message every tutor for clarification…”
You’re trying to work it all out based on the grades you do know, but you’re full of doubt. You have a copy of the essay you submitted on your computer, a printed version that your tutor gave you after marking it, as well as clarification from the student office of your mark… but you still think that you could have misread a 40 for a 68.
4. “Champagne anyone? Just in case…”
A bit of positivity never hurts, and for a moment it’s exactly what you need. Even if things don’t go your way, at least you can drown your sorrows, right?
5. “You can’t change anything now, best not to worry about it.”
At some point you come to terms with this harsh reality – there is nothing you can do. Frantically scouring the internet for that answer that was worth the bulk of the exam is not going to change a thing, sadly.
6. “JUST GIVE ME THEM ALREADY”
Everyone has a strop every once in a while and the moment you lose all patience is your time to shine. You want your marks and you want them now.
7. “Seriously, should I just message every tutor?”
The doubt is still lingering and you need someone, anyone to reassure you that it’s all going to be okay.
8. “Ignorance is bliss, right?”
You finally decide to give up. You abandon all the moments of doubt and panic and instead allow your thoughts to be consumed by all things Netflix.
