East (the worst!). I always got the impression Nottingham was really nice, my old science teacher used to bang on about loving it (though that's probably because she's in such a grotty area now)
They'll reject me BECAUSE they're very good :P I got pretty much average GCSEs (not TSR average of 932849839740937 As) and my A2 predictions for English are just weird. They said in my reference I'm an A grade candidate who lacks exam confidence and for that reason they've predicted me a B
I know people who do Health and Social Care but have no idea of what it actually involves..? Media sounds fun, I'd love to be a director one day and make films like A Clockwork Orange <3 so weird
Besides English I'm doing Drama (occasionally makes me feel like I want to kill myself because of rehearsals), Geography and used to do Biology but I epically flopped. I blame the teacher.
What kinda Journalism do you wanna do?
Nah, Nottingham isn't nice. There's only really one area that's nice - West Bridgford. Your science teacher probably lived there!
Don't put yourself down, have faith in yourself, I'm sure Leeds would accept an A grade candidate! Just make sure your personal statement is good.
Health and Social Care is the worst subject in the world, it's actually soul destroying. I'm doing a 12 Unit course in 2 years and it's hard work, it's ALL coursework based so it's just constant coursework all day, everyday. But saying that, I got 6 distinctions last year which was alot better than everyone else, so I'm doing alright!
I wanna do print journalism, preferably within music or sport. I've chosen courses that are primarily print based but also have broadcast journalism in too just incase I change my mind.
Oh and as for Biology, I opted to do that at the start of my first year. I went to one lesson and realised I was rubbish so I dropped it! It was only coz at the time I was undecided between Journalism and Midwifery (yeah, I don't know why I'd wanna be a Midwife either...) but realised Journalism is what I've always wanted to do and is right for me. To be honest, the only thing that attracted me to Midwifery is that the fees are free!
