    Then the best thing you can do is ignore her if you don't want to shout at her family problems are awful at any time so I can't imagine how awful you feel
    I was already doubting it, purely because I'd never looked at Advertising courses before and this one has a year in industry. She just added to it. At least I don't live with her haha

    How I want to say Bournemouth because of the year in employment but I've had my heart set on Cardiff for so long and I have to wonder how credible I'd look changing my mind about my course AGAIN.

    Employers won't know that you changed your mind. You are going to Bournemouth aren't you? If so don't think about it until you go. Because you'll never know until you go and you might hate it. Also when you are there let your mum give options but don't let her convince you one way or another.

    Yeah I'm thinking more about my Nan and my college teachers - I know that I've left but I don't want to disappoint them. Yeah, on the 17th if everything goes to plan It's so hard not to think about though because I've got nothing else to do

    I will brush her opinions off if I don't like it... it's if I like it and then get into Cardiff that worries me!

    At least when you're in uni you get your results in July. I'm planning on getting a job while I'm at uni as well.

    Unless you have to resit and you get August exams and I'm pretty much looking to get summer research placements in the uni every year.

    Try not to get too worked up about it all. You probably have doubts about Cardiff because you keep thinking you haven't got the grades. Go look at Bournemouth but keep an open mind. There will probably still be spaces in clearing after results day if things don't go to plan - but chances are if you get accepted into Cardiff all your doubts will disappear. Keep smiling

    It's not TSR, it's my mother who is supposed to be HELPING ME KEEP CALM!


    She's just spent the last 15 minutes listing all the reasons why Cardiff is wrong for me and I should ditch it even if by some miracle I achieve the grades. She's convinced that the Bournemouth Advertising course is perfect for me (how she came to this conclusion I do not know and she will not explain).

    All this when I already have my own doubts
