I'm sat writing this in my last drama rehearsal before my last ever exam at 9am on Monday morning! We're having a break, I'm not skiving I promise! Over the past two weeks I have completed all of my exams and handed in all of my essays. I'm looking forward to finishing on Monday as this module has been quite stressful, and the dance staff have organised a graduation boat party for us, which we're all really excited about.
But I can't help looking back over the past three years and feeling really nostalgic. My degree seems to have gone so quick, and as I am awaiting my results to find out if I have a definite place on my postgraduate course, the immediate future seems fairly uncertain for me. Which as an organised person, panics me a little!
Some of my friends are moving back to their hometowns, some are going travelling and the rest of us are still unsure, which is all quite emotional as we've shared the past three years together. I'm sure a few of you are feeling very similar as you prepare for exams, results, and moving on to university.
In this blog I just wanted to emphasis that even though you are all probably sick to death of revision, to continue to work hard in this final push. Also to make the most of your final college days, do something with your friends and family to celebrate the end of exams and begin to look forward to what lies ahead for you in September.
When it comes to results, don't panic if you haven't achieved what you needed for your first choice, often universities will accept you if your results were very close and there's also your insurance choice or the option of going through Clearing to find another university place. We spend so much time worrying about options and our future, as long as we all work continuously hard throughout our exams, I'm sure things will work out for the best!

When I visited Kingston for my audition, met my lecturers, and had a tour of the campus and Kingston river side; I immediately felt comfortable and knew it was the right choice for me. I have g...
