Lydia Swales – A levels undecided but definitely a language
All A* and As
“I’m really pleased with my results – I really wasn’t expecting them as I thought I had done really badly because some of the exams didn’t go as well as I’d hoped.
“At the moment, I’m not 100 per cent sure what I’m going to be studying for A level, I am swayed towards Biology, Chemistry and German – but I need to have a think. I know that I will definitely have a Modern Foreign Language in amongst my choices. I love languages and studied French, German and Latin at GCSE.
“I am still shaking after getting my results. I picked up the envelope and ran to my mum’s car. We sat in the back lane near school while I opened them. Depending on how I’d done, I was either going to drive off home or come back into school, thankfully I’ve done well so I came back in.”
