Parents want me to apply in S5

    Hey guys,

    So my parents want me to apply for Uni in S5 (Scotland btw). They wouldn't let me go if I got in anyway. And I'm doing 6 higher so am really busy this year. I'm also at a tough point in my life which takes up a lot of mental strength and time. I don't think I have the strength to apply this year. Any advice?

    May I ask why your parents want you to apply even though they wont let you go even if you got in?

    Keep up the strength, you will overcome this

    You don't need to do what they tell you when it comes to them demanding ridiculous things like this.

    You need to tell them how you feel, or that you'd rather not apply this year so that you can focus all your energy on studying for your highers to be able to apply next year.
