AIBU to be really bloody proud of myself?

I haven't really shared this with anyone in RL yet, because I get a bit embarrassed about this sort of thing. But, under the cloak of anonymity, I'm going to have a bit of a boast.

I got a grade B in A level Classical Civilisation today - and I was just one mark off a grade A overall, with 94/100 in one of the papers.

This was just a 'hobby' and I've really loved the subject matter. I'm flippin' chuffed.

There. As you were.

Bloomin’ brilliant - congratulations!
I did Classical Civilisation Alevel 22 years ago and it isn’t an easy subject (I got a C when I was 18)

Congratulations! Which uni are you going to? wink

DH said that I should get a remark too! I'm not so bothered - it's only a hobby (as I've been reminding myself for the past two years!) and I'm delighted to come out with a very high B.

The main thing is that I got 94/100 in the module I utterly adored (Ancient Greek Art and Architecture) - that's the icing on the cake for me.

I'm going to miss it all hugely. If it wasn't for money / children / work / spare time, I'd study the subject further in a heartbeat.
