I was sat in maths one afternoon, our teacher was off yet again, and the supply we had was the old grandad type. Nice, but far too soft.
I wanted to leave school at the end of 4th year, but my mum didn't agree. I eventually decided I would do my last year, but as soon as that year started I knew it wasn't for me. I had no interest in school, knowing I wanted to leave.
That afternoon, my friend had said she had been accepted on her course that she'd applied for but there were still places on it. I knew this would be my only way out, so that lesson I printed of an application form and filled it in. Not long after I got a letter saying I had been accepted on an unconditional offer. I knew I didn't want to do childcare but can honestly say as much of a mistake I made, its been one heck of an experience.
I no longer feel stupid with only average grades, now I work harder and get above average, I am not miss brainy but I work hard for it, and the results are showing it. However, I've applied for a completely different course next year, with something I want to do.
My advice though, is don't apply for a course, just because a friends on it. It will do you know benefits. Just because you won't know anyone on the course doesn't mean you won't fit in. :)
