If you're receiving your A-level exam results today, you will probably understand the completely nerve wracking absurdity that is the educational system. Waiting, pacing, and eventually deciding how these results will impact the next 40 odd years of your life are the worst.
In fact, here are some stock images that perfectly sum up waiting for your results.
When you're waiting for the postman to arrive.
When your friend calls you afterwards and they got the same grades as you.
But your parents want to have a discussion about your future.
And then you start thinking about your own future.
When you hear your parents talking about your grades in the other room.
But you go online and compare your results with other people's and see you did just fine.
