Do what ever you are happy with
University isn't the only way forward. There is nothing wrong at all with doing college courses (in fact if I wasn't so passionate about History I doubt I would be going to University). There are other routes to success like the exact one you have said. Don't think "If I don't go to uni I will fail at life" because that simply isn't the case.
At the same time if you do want to go to university don't let your parents say what can and cant do in your life. If that is your dream you go for it!!
Haha I'm hoping to do History at Uni as well
The reason I'm kind of worrying is because my parents would literally disown me if I got a student loan and went to Uni behind their back sort of thing and I love my parents too much to lose them
preferably I would like to improve my grades while having a job and reapply for uni, but they're really against that, as I'm already a year behind because I took an unconventional gap year between GCSE and A level!
Also, I'm predicted AAA, so I'm obviously not stupid, but a few things led to me not being able to revise this January, which means that I've got retakes in summer with an excessive amount of exams
I'm trying my hardest to keep up, but it's all a little crazy and I'm starting to doubt myself and what I'll realistically be able to achieve! So I want a back up plan that will still be academic sort of thing and studying to become a veterinary nurse while working at the same time is the only thing I can think of that will still be able to push me!
Does anyone know of any ways to get into journalism without going to University and with no work experience? Or how to get work experience? I have tried and I've always been turned away saying that I need to have experience to get experience... It's like one big vicious circle!!
