    Liverpool iA if I get the grades :/ depends on biology tbh
    well a placement is experience and experience is never invaluable
    the best thing for you is you can actually do stuff! Some placements I've done I can only observe (for obvious reasons) but still thoroughly enjoyed.



    me too I am so bored at home as well which just makes it more exciting to want to go. So tempted to tag along to london one for a day or two just because its supposed to be the biggest haha
    Inshallah!
    Nice! Say hi to a friend of mine over there! Exactly, and you get paid
    This wouldn't be just observing, because well it'd be a 12 month contract job essentially

    the gcse consists of 2 speaking and listening exams in which you will need to memorise what you will be saying in the exam.Marks will be given on your grammar,how fluent you are and on the urdu accent.Recordings of your voice will be stored on a memory stick and posted to the Aqa company(scary).Other urdu exams are reading and writing,writing as in a mental urdu exam with another urdu paper and an urdu essay/longer writing exam.

    Well are you British born and if so did your family speak much Urdu with you because that makes the accent and grammar easy to get.

    Thats pretty cool and admirable I guess. Too many British Asians of Pakistani heritage don't have much interest in their mother tongue as I've always found that people regard it highly to have another language. My family moved to the UK when I was 9 from Pak so for me it was the opposite; learning English from almost scratch.

    Lol well I could read english but I couldnt speak or understand English when we came to the UK. Also we werent living in a diverse location but a totally White British Town called Tamworth (still live here) so when I began school 3 days after we arrived it was the weirdest experience of my life. The weird British accent and the speed at which everyone spoke meant all I could say was Hello, Yes/ No and Can I go to the Toilet (My mum taught me this one specially)
