    I've had a few really good maths teachers which I think is the reason I want to go into that field of work as I've seen them make kids actually like maths for once and I feel I could do the same Hahaa

    Yeah I get that, maths is seen as scary for some person and a maths teacher who can help children love maths must be really inspiring.

    Hey guys just a quick one, if my insurance course is currently in the clearing list, does that mean they're more likely to accept me with grades AAB when my offer's AAA, or is that not how it goes?

    Yes, plus you don't get to teach much when you take on a role in school leadership.
    Department heads probably don't get the same stress however.

    Yh true cause half the time you have all these meetings to go to which must get pretty dull cause I bet mostly you're just sitting their listening to their head and I doubt they take into account your own views that much !

    From my time in student leadership that's definitely the case. Our SLT (head + Deputies) didn't listen to staff or student ideas, they acted positive,y to them but nothing would ever be done unless they were planning it anyway.

    Yh true I've reached the point where I've convinced myself alevels are rather pointless when you can just keep retaking forever till you get a good grade
    Yeah, tbh I know I've failed at least one but that's okay because I didn't need it, and I know I probably need to be worried about the others, but this year has taken so much out of me that I just don't have the energy to panic. I s'pose retaking would be an ok option for me though

    I don't know what to think to be honest! It was all going smoothly until my very last exam which felt like a train wreck so that's completely knocked my confidence.

    Like literally my grades could be A*A*A or AAB
