    Actually you know what it hasnt. I think I chose my a-levels wanting to go into healthcare and did consider doing nursing- and almost did a health and social care a-level but decided against it (why I do not know as it'd have been really useful!). I went through different decisions through sixth form- but here i am!

    I went to a school that never really bothered with teaching us about the correct A-Levels for the correct university course, or even gave us any HE awareness tbh.

    I failed my first year of AS, took a year out to get things back together (my life was going woefully off-track) and reapplied to another college to do sociology, psychology and english. I enjoyed AS sociology so much that I decided it is the subject I want to take to degree level, and since I've wanted to teach for quite a while, I thought studying education would be very appropriate for me, especially when applying for competitive PGCE courses.

    So there.

    yeahh, this one boy was like "i'm confused...are you saying that blatant capitalism is...good?"
    everyone else got really indignant about the welfare system and ed milliband's "living wage".
    it was nice to take a different perspective though and just try and argue it out. like thatcher. woooo.
