Many received exam results yesterday and GCSE ‘A’ Level results are out today. To those who achieved or exceeded forecast results, congratulations! For those who have been disappointed, it really isn’t such a big deal. It just feels that way today. Time now to reflect. Don’t make a hasty decision which you might already suspect you will regret. Even those who have spectacularly exceeded their forecast results should perhaps now have a long, hard think about what direction they want to take. University might be the correct decision for some but not for all, regardless of academic ability. Specific to this forum, in recent years it was calculated that about 80% of Royal Marines Other Rank Recruits were academically qualified to be Officers. Bottom line: whatever your exam results the world truly is your lobster.
