Oh I wish it were that easy for me, Chesire, I wish it were. They are basically forcing me. It has happened before. Example; when I was in year 6, for Secondary transfer, I wanted to go to the same School as my friends (it sounds silly now but that's not the point. It was still a good school, in fact, for 6th form, it's almost better than my current School! Or so I've heard).
Anyway, for months we argued about it, when they realised that I wasn't going to give up, they even bribed me,that didnt work either, (principle will not be bought! ) then in the end when they realised that I was genuinely going to go to the School they put their foot down and it was the whole "What we say goes. You're not going to that School. End of story." And that was that. I cried and cried and cried, they said that they'd follow through with the conditions of the bribe (that only lasted for about a year
) and tried to be all like "oh but this School is an Arts School, that is perfect for you, that subject is your strength" (NOTE: The very same subject that they are trying to get me to forget about seven years later?!!) and the rest is history.
THEN, when it came to entering 6th form, they tried to force me to go somewhere else, (but the place didn't accept me, I "accidentally" called back to find out how my interview had gone/potentially confirm a place too late. And it "just so happened" that I wasn't having a good day on the day of the interview, so I was a little despondent. Hehe.
See my dilemma? Really wish my parents would react like your Mum.
Thanks =] and haha, well there's no harm in that-it's good to have broad choices =] And yeah, exactly; at least AS Levels are done now and you got that extra grade =]
