Even now I get that little fizz in my gut when I think about exam results day. I can vividly remember walking into my school reception for the last time on a sunny August afternoon in Essex with no real idea of how I'd performed.

I'd gone on from five years of school onto two years of sixth form - and those last two were a mixed bag.

Year 12 saw me essentially fritter away time – poor exam results, a lack of care and way cooler things to do.

A shake-up in the summer between year 12 to 13 after some poor AS results made me grow-up and knuckle down, especially with my dream clearer: I wanted to be a journalist, God help me, with no contacts or clue how to achieve it.
