6th Form colleges.....AH!!!!!

My youngest daughter is now in her very last year of school and whislt she thinks she wants to study medicine she is still a little unsure of where to continue her studies.

The options are 6th form at her own school, 6th form else where or college.

So this has seen me being dragged around many opening evenings so far.

And you know what?

After taking to the tutors I am convinced that I am either very thick or they all speak a very different language to me!

It's a mine field of information, none of which is in English.
(I'm more confused now than I was before, as is Ash!)

But we can't give up yet I still have at lease five more to see in the next month or so.

No wonder teenagers get stressed!

To make matters worse I am having to go to all of these open evenings in work clothes as I have no time to change.

Last night saw me wearing this;

(Excuse the strange quiff!)

 I'll leave you with a quote from Ash as she spoke to a tutor with ref to the subjects she is thinking of studying.

"Well I am thinking of both A level biology and chemistry, but for fun subjects , as we all need a little fun, I am thinking Law and politics!"

Only my child could think those two would be "fun" subjects, bless her!

  1. Looking great in that dress xx

  2. They sound fun to me! Unfortunately they weren't options when I was at sixth form :(

    I'd recommend she really researches what A Levels she'll need if she wants to go into medicine. None of the people I know who went into medicine and similar fields did any "fun" A levels, it was all science based, with a few forays into maths.

  3. looking fab, love the scarf :)
    I can't think of any subjects as being fun?!

  4. That would be a great thing to get into medicine.
    Sounds like you have been very busy.
    Love the dress very glam x x

  5. Thanks Alex. We've researched a lot and the sciences are a must but she will come out with triple higher maths from school all being well so may not need a maths a level at this stage. We shall recheck mind. X x
