What a feeling! Months of relearning, revision, and stress are over. This morning, I completed my last exam of the season – and, all being well, my last ever GCSE exam – meaning I am now ‘free’.

Never again will I have to prepare and sit such a great number and wide range of subjects. It’s easy for those older than me – who’ve sat much longer and harder exams – to look at me and say “You don’t know what’s coming, boy”, but for me it really does feel like an achievement.
A few days after Tuesday’s OCR GCSE History exam on International Relations (1919 to 1945) and Germany (1919 to 1945), it was back to school for today’s paper on Britain (1945 to 1975).

This afternoon saw me donning my school uniform for the first time in a couple of weeks, as I went in to complete the first of my two GCSE History exams, in which I was examined in International Relations (1919 to 1945), and Germany (1919 to 1945).
