I don't have problems - my parents are a lot better of now than they were a few years ago.
(Original post by kingw)
the point i was tryin 2 get across is tht the money from EMA is much more needed by the pupils from lower incomes. were thr parents may nt be able to give so much money for transport, books etc. so this allowance helps thm 2 learn and nt hav 2 work full time.
i understand ur probs. but u need 2 knw were i am coming from.hopefully i will get £20 i think
And can I ask a question? An honest answer would be nice please. Are you really going to spend your EMA money on books and travel? I planned on going to college, that would mean getting two buses a day. My parents would have paid for that, they would also have paid for my dinner. Also, they would pay for books, revision guides etc.
I did however, choose to go to sixth form. Five minutes away from my house, I don't have any travel costs, nor any food costs as I'll be going home for my dinner. As for books, revision guides my parents will buy them. Not because they can afford to - but because they want to.
I can't name one person I know who will be spending money they get from EMA on their education, most people use it for their own gains. On games, CD's, whatever you want to spend your money on.
So, back to the question.
Will you be spending your EMA money on your education? You say you might get £20 a week, if you had to pay for your education £20 wouldn't go very far. I am getting £10, that is 1 weeks bus fare.
Remember, be honest.
