Passing A-levels is just as simillar non-event. (you get alevels during college).
In britain we get to dress up in mortar boards and gowns for Uni graduation.
In america I've seen pictures of my cousin dressed up in mortar board and gown for pre-school graduation.
I graduated Highschool (secondary school) in 1999, (2 A*, 3 B, 4 C, 2 D) College graduation 2001 (3 C), University graduation 2004 (2:1).
I'm considering taking a masters course in a few years. -next time I graduate might be 2008!
Lol; wow; you're younger than I thought you were.
I got my GCSE Results today!
Pretty crap really; GNVQ ICT was a piss; I got 80 out of a hundred or round about on ever module bar the one the teachers didn't give me time to do! And because of that I got a stinking Merit instead of a nice Distinction.
1A* (Maths; 94% <- particularly proud of that
), 2 As (would have been 6 had they not counted the module I didn't do!), 5 Bs, 2 Cs.
Planning on Doing a Doctorate then? You'll have to get David you change your name to Dr. Root.
