Impending 'O' Levels results release: how to stay cool and calm
« on: December 26, 2017, 09:02:04 pm »
In a couple more weeks, the results for this year's 'O' Level examinations shall be released, and secondary school students who sat for it will discover if they qualify for entry into a polytechnic or junior college. Naturally, many young hearts would be thumping real hard at this point in time, some being nervously hopeful while others being consumed by a significant amount of trepidation. One thoroughly anxious lad has taken to Reddit Singapore to declare how he just couldn't stop worrying about things and contemplating the what-ifs , thus his plea for advice with regards to keeping himself properly distracted from the mentioned state of affairs. A netizen who goes by the moniker bluecheeseplate offers a variety of sensible methods to achieve this courtesy of his past experiences:

Aha, I was like you a couple years back. Literally every night I used to think about my potential results and, embarrassingly, cry my arse to sleep.

What helped me get better was to accept that, ultimately, it won't be the end of the world if you get bad results. Perhaps you won't get into that sexy JC or polytechnic course you wanted, but it isn't a dead end. There are multiple streams of education stemming from there; you just have to find them, and I can tell you that 'O' levels will be nothing more than a tiny speck of an event when you reminisce about it 3 to 5 years from now.
