    @ Mods - PLEASE let this thread stay here for like an hour - i really need the advice of the TSR people *begs*

    --

    For our Ecology course we have to go to Cardiff on a field trip for a week. It costs £315, including a non refundable £50.

    Now, at the start of the year my dad talked with the head of biology and they discussed the matter and the conclusion was that i COULD STAY BEHIND AND DO THE COURSEWORK IN SCHOOL, rather than at the field trip.

    Now, the Head of Bio has fallen critically ill and the "stand-in" leader of Biology says that it is COMPULSORY to go. :rolleyes:

    Meaning that if i don't pay by wednesday, i can't carry onto A2!

    Now here's what's ****ed up.. :mad:

    I got this compulsory news on Friday
    The guy is gonna meet me tomorrow
    The school is a PUBLIC school..

    So i'm SURE there's no compulsion to go on this trip. If the head actually said i can stay, then i fail to see the problem.

    Sorry about this rant, but i'm real stressed and p!ssed at these people. I'm just gonna tell the guy that the head of Bio said i can stay.

    You dont HAVE to go. If it is necessary for the course then the fee should be a VOLUNTARY contribution which you dont have to pay to go

    i went on mine. about 20 of us went, the rest chose to stay at school and do their coursework there. although i had fun, it cost me a gd £250 and everyone that went got terrible results, so i had to redo my coursework over easter, which sucks. but it might not be the same for your school.

    so basically you can choose to stay and do coursework in school right?

    Did you do Ecology too?

    as I have already posted in the Biology thread, I'll just mention it again here...it was a pointless day trip but it was only about £20 (for the coach)! I didn't do my coursework on ecology though, we did it on microbes and disease

    Your school can probably prvide help with funding if that's what you need...
    I had a trip for £200 and I'm glad I did it, cos it was usfull for coursework andexams in two subjects. Also it was amazingly good fun. I would reccomend going if you can.
