Course leader behind The Watford Creative Ad School, Tony Cullingham, explains why it's okay to fail at your GCSE's and how your adventure is just beginning.

You failed your Maths.

You failed your Chemistry.

You failed your Biology.

You even failed Geography.

And everyone said Geography was easy.

Or, maybe you didn't fail.

You just got poor grades.

Your parents are worried.

They look at you and ask, 'What are you gonna do with your life?'

You tell them this.

The educational establishment can't grade Energy.

They can't mark Intuition either.

And they certainly can't give you a diploma in Instinct.

There's no Degree in Attitude.
