    The AS grades just kicked him into gear because he did well in one and badly in the others and completely changed his work ethic. I think it was like ACCD he got, and he completely changed.



    Oh yeah. I call him a friend he was more of an acquaintance
    That is inspirational. I don't think I could do it as I would be 20 when going there, if I got in. That would be so weird.

    Yeah in Ireland it's different even in the north where we do A Levels. The way the system works you could finish GCSEs when you're 14-16 and then finish A Levels when you're 17-18, but you'd have to take at least 1 gap year before you could go to university.

    Only if you're not 18 for university or 16 for GCSEs.

    Only if you're not 18 for university or 16 for GCSEs. I spent my GCSE gap year working on my uncle's farm and in my other uncle's garage. A bit of work experience really.
    That's interesting. Thank you for sharing your experiences.

    Just because you've ended up working at Tesco because you took some kind of Sociology-Media-English combination doesn't mean everyone will.
    I applied they said I have to be over 18. #SadTimes.
