6 events in your life that are more important than getting your A-Level results

Posted on 02 March 2015

Your A-Level results should not determine your life. There are other more important events.

So, you got your A-Level results back on March 2, 2015 and it feels like it is the end of the world?

Don’t be silly, you’re making small things look big. And because there are other things that could really end your world.

Let’s help you put things into perspective. Here are 6 events in your life that are more important than getting your A-Level results.

 

1. Your birth

If you weren’t born, none of the things that happen would matter because you wouldn’t be there to observe it.

 

2. Your death

Getting exam results is one thing. Dying is another. It is not the be-all. But it sure is the end-all.

 

3. Choosing a flat that is not beside a columbarium

Not choosing correctly can cost you a lot of money and probably even your retirement fund. Would you rather get a B for Econs or potentially lose a few hundred thousand dollars?

 

4. Choosing a spouse

If you don’t choose properly, it could end in divorce and you losing half your assets. That’s worse than a C for Math.

 

5. Getting your university results

After your A-Level, you are still a useless person because you don’t have a degree. Therefore, you need to go to university.

And if you fail at university, you would need to take the exams again the next semester and staying back in school for another term is a strain on finances.

Worse, you get expelled for sucking at higher tertiary level.

 

6. Posting a brainless comment on social media that leads to your expulsion from the country after it goes viral

Worse things can happen later on in life than getting a B for Knowledge and Inquiry.

 

As you can see, there are more important things in life than your A-Level results.

Don’t fret. There are worse things to ruin your day.

 

Here is another thing that is more important than your A-Level results:
