Most people who use this website are ethusiastic about their education - this is why you don't see dumb chavs on here getting F's.
But, in all seriousness, I used to go to a regular state school for my GCSEs. It hasn't affected my grades.
It's like saying that just because everyone else has failed so far, so will you. Well, ok, you might, but it's not a guarantee. Other people's predictions have nothing to do with me.
Doesn't matter whether you go to a state school or a private school. You are still the same aren't you.
I used to go to a private school till Year 6. It was no doubt, a fantastic school. But everyone is just so into their education that you start wondering whether they have a life (no offence intended).
When we moved, I had to join a state school. It was a terrible school. Only about 28% of people passed with 5 or more A*s to Cs. But, that didn't affect me learning. Why should it?
We had to move again, and I still went to a state school, but this time the pass rate was around 70%. Admittedly, I got better opportunities here, no doubt about that.
But, there is no way that private schools have better teachers. They just have better resources, and push individuals more. Which isn't necessary for people who push themselves.
The best (and I mean, THE BEST) teachers I ever had was in that crap secondary school with the 28% pass grade. My English teacher and my Maths teacher were fantastic. I owe my A*s in English Lang/Lit and Maths to them. They were awesome.
So, unless you blame teachers for your bad grades, it doesn't really make much of a difference whether you go to a state or private school.
At the end of the day, it's your education, and it's down to you.
[Thanks to JordanSHowarth for pointing out my lack of knowledge about the difference between a state and public school lol. Is that better now?]
yea but tbh no one cares what someone here says they have. All that it does is mislead over people when they try to give them University advice and as a result the person who lies doesn't get anything whilst the people who help them just waste their time.
