I’m not really sure what answer people are expecting when they ask students like myself how we are feeling about the upcoming exam results day. Sometimes the question can be easily answered with a simple reply but at times it can be tricky depending on the person. Most of the time though, it is a mundane conversation as you end up telling different people the same thing over and over again. Of course, the same doesn’t apply to the questioner but for you as a student, it can become tiresome. So I think inventive ways to answer this question need to be thought about.
How are you feeling about results day?
Option1. I wasn’t feeling anything until you reminded me of the blasted thing. In fact, I was doing quite well blocking it from my mind for the past fifty six days and seventeen hours but now that you mention it, how are you feeling about the upcoming anniversary of your failed marriage?
Option 2. Results day? For what? I have no idea what you are talking about.
Option 3. Results day? Oh no uncle, I forgot to tell you that I left school. Yes I can’t really be bothered with it all you see, my summertime lemonade stand was so successful that I’m going to move to Spain and open one full-time.
Option 4. I don’t care about results day. Education is enforced upon us and takes away our freedom. Plus, I guess you don’t want me as a son-in-law anymore right?
Do you need some water aunty? You’re looking quite pale and shocked.
Option 5. No my friend, I don’t know what I am going to get on results day else it would be a pretty pointless day, wouldn’t it?
Option 6: I am so excited for results day! I wonder which movie is going to be voted the best of 2014!
Option 7: I’m quite nervous actually. The doctors said I will find out if I have a contagious disease or not. At the moment they are only 87% sure. Hey where are you running off to!
Good luck to all those receiving their A-level or GCSE results in August! Or any kind of results.
Until Next Time
