    I definitely don't think it's useless :nah:
    Judgement and analytical skills are very useful in life, especially if you want to pursue a career in which you need to infer things from a text or situation (for example law). It also develops the sophistication of your expression, which gives you the upper hand in interviews and written work of any kind.
    I understand the analytical skills it's just like with Macbeth I don't understand how being able to compare differences in characters between the play and film is useful

    I don't see how else you'd be able to develop the skills otherwise without having something to practice and apply them to? :dontknow:

    Perhaps I'm just underappreciating its value as so far I haven't seen a situation where it was useful

    my interview was just a formality which the have to do to ensure they're not letting any old guy into their college.

    If I were you, just chose 4 topic that truly interest you and that you can talk in depth about for a sustained time. Practice interviews with family? I think the best advice is to remember they're not trying to trip you up - it will just be like a conversation. They want to know you!

    how was it? What did they ask?

    it was ok. had to wait for half an hour becuase i was the last one to be called, and thats how long they lasted each.(put a group of ten of us in a room and 4 where out at a time - however some where shorter, hence why it was half an hour for me) they asked questions like "what do you know about the course" (top tip - research! - i did it so well that the guy who was interviewing me - the head of creative arts at the college ill be going to in september becuase i did well in my interview - said that i knew more about the course than he did) and "do you have any asstance in your exams of lessons" (this is where i told about my extra time and my word processer, what came from this is that i will be contacted nearer the time of my course to ask what things will i need to be put in place for me)

    When i had my interview, i brought my photogrphy coursework with me, becuase eventhough it wasnt needed, i wanted to show off. i showed him my book, and he was impressed. i also had to bring my latest school report with me, becuase i was asked too, but if i wasnted i would of brought it with me anyway to show off what i can do, and what my teachers think of me)

    My school reports are only predicted grades, TMGs and you get 1-5 on aspects e.g. behaviour, homework, effort.. etc
    Would that be fine?

    They'll be writing a reference soon too

    I'm really not looking forward to going back to school tomorrow. It's just a really stressful environment and it's not nice when even the teachers are being driven into the ground

    We already got mock results, but have our sixth form open evening this week, then "consultation meetings" next week, and then parent's evenings soon after. So it's all go from now on! I'm still a bit undecided about my A-Levels but we basically have to choose them within a fortnight, or make a preliminary choice anyway.
