because I couldn't revise.
There was no opportunity for me to revise.
I took all my exams without any prep really.
And although I came out of school with nine GTSEs,
there was only one at O level standard.
So I sat whilst I was admin,
I sat my math and english,
so then I gained qualifications while I was inside.
Now, I reached the rank of sergeant
before realizing that actually I was gonna go for paramedic,
and it only really became an opportunity
when I reached rank of sergeant.
So then I went to the training of it
and absolutely loved it.
I got the book.
Academically I was very, very poor,
and I literally, and that's throughout the whole
of my career, I literally just got enough
to pass academically, but practically, I smashed it.
So, you know, yeah, I got through the training,
and it was great.
I loved every second of it.
And now I've got letters after my name,
which is quite embarrassing.
I find it embarrassing.
I don't really use them, but for me,
it just shows how far I've traveled,
but all that was thanks to being in the military.
