DIvI' Hol:
[Most of this was iffyqu', as well as being repetetive. There is too much for me to express. I'm going to have 
to seriously learn some vocab.]
Today [Friday] I received [the results of] my five A-level exams.
In England and Wales these are exams of the final year of school.
The letter 'A' is short for the word 'advanced'.
A-levels are harder than GCSE's.
I also received [the result of] my AEA paper.
AEA's are harder than A-levels.
I also received [the results of] my two STEP's.
STEP's are exams in maths. [Or "in math", for non-English speakers]
STEP's are much harder than A-levels.
Because I was waiting for the results, I was worried and agitated.
When I received the results I was even more agitated: they were not good enough.
I passed my A-levels [four 'A' grades and a 'B'], and I got a distinction in the AEA.
But I failed both of the STEP's.
The university I had chosen is in Cambridge. [Or in fact, *is* Cambridge. There isn't much else there apart 
from the uni.]
I was vituperably unhappy.
Fortunately, it [Cambridge] wants me to study there anyway. [I got a bit stuck on that one. A bit of help, 
Now I am very happy.
I am going to study the science of physics. [Unfortunately, the tlhIngan Hol course required a year in a 
university on Qo'noS, so I was stuck with this.]
