It seems a long time ago now. In truth, it has been less than a year — eleven months to be precise. It was mid-August, Results Day. We had planned to go out that evening to celebrate, the old crowd together for what might turn out to be the last time for months, or even years. At the end of the summer we would be going to university, each of us moving to different parts of the country. I was to go to Cambridge to study Natural Sciences and had already received a conditional offer on the basis of my predicted 'A' Level1 results. I needed one A*2 and two As. It was in the bag; I was expecting three A*s.
