We found out in April that my son Jamie had a conditional acceptance to the course of his choice at the university of his choice, if he achieved certain grades in his higher exams and passed the university's chemistry 'access' course. He sat the exams in May but we had to wait until August to hear that he'd passed them. He started the access course via distance learning at the end of July and sat the exam yesterday. He was really unsure if he'd done enough to pass but we were told today that he did and so he leaves for Aberdeen on Monday!!!!! He's been under such pressure for so long to get these results but I'm so proud of him and I'm gonna miss him so much. That's two sons away studying and only my daughter still at home - and she's away in Dublin this weekend on a school trip. So looking forward to a stress-free sleep tonight.
