i guess since you dont have any interest in anything specifically you can use it as an opportunity to throw yourself into a subject that might be lucrative. i dont know how to explain it. its not the best route but there are people who study certain things just for the money
might be an idea to study more thats just how life is heh :P
honestly i have no idea. the more research you do the better i think. you could have a chat with some advisors. type in connexions webchat into google, fill in the form and have a chat with them ^^ thats what i do whenever im unsure about anything hope that helps!
i noyl have a mild interest. i come from a low income family too so the salary for chemical engineering spurs me on to get to that job. i too had no interest in anything specific. you just have to ask yourself what area of science you remotely like, research jobs in that field and eventually you'll find something. i dont know that much about apprenticeships its work based learning. in some cases you earn money on the job. i know a girl who's currently doing an engineering apprenticeship with a private company who will also pay for her uni fees as well for her degree. she works alot though and she'll be given a job by that same company at some point. maybe you could consider that?
we have apprenticeships but thats more hands on work. im planning to finish them by next year june
i only study because i need to i think its fair to say not that many people like to study. i so badly want to do chemical engineering though. it is quite interesting but i have low grades. im hoping to pick it up this year...
i got 6 A's and 6 B's. and i am a uk citizen i did okay in gcse i was expecting more A's but im pleased with what i got. btw what did you get for gcse? were you born in sri lanka?
oh lol im from sri lanka. im tamil but i was born and raised here so i cant speak it that well. ive heard about people from sri lanka who spend a boat load just trying to get an education. its cheaper to be a private candidate, tutor costs is alot. i found 2 exam centers that will hopefully take me on. i need to call them though. thank you for telling me about your story and ur education. feel free to ask me any questions. i did great at gcse but i never studied for a levels. im doing a btec right now but im thinking about quitting it....
I read your "who did worse than me thread" and i just wanted to say you are not alone. I did physics, chemistry, maths and biology at AS first year. failed that got Us and Es. I resat the year same subject but this time got a D and 3 E's. tbh i never ever worked and now im regretting it. i'm 19 now. im going to do the full maths and chemistry a level as a private candidate so i need to work hard. what are your plans for uni?
You did send me a message yesterday but I replied on another thread, I always delete my wall posts to keep things tidy .
Your question about reputation. If you make a post, other users can either vote it up or down, agree or disagree, good or bad. A troll is usually in receipt of high levels of negative reputation, which is shown as red bars under your user name.
A lot of users "neg" for other reasons that making a bad post, such as finding that particular user annoying, being jealous of high grades or being judgemental about their university choice.
The best thing to do is just to forget about reputation, and enjoy The Student Room to talk to people about academic and other issues
Hope that helps!
