    Hi all,
    Feeling slightly irritated about this:
    • I am sitting the Biology exam on the 6th of June.
    • My work experience is the 2nd - 6th of June
    • I am going to miss a day of WE
    • I have to do this as I am not taking BTEC or Triple science.
    • Those who are taking BTEC and Triple get another day of WE.


    Does anyone else think this is stupid and unfair?
    Thanks
    Harry

    I don't really understand why this is unfair? If you knew you were going to have an exam on the 6th, why did you organise your work experience to be on that week?

    Also, I seriously doubt it matters. If you're in Year 10/11, you're hardly going to have a particularly exciting work experience opportunity.

    Unfortunately that's life. You can always organize work experience in the summer holidays or another time if you need more. If you're not taking BTEC or Triple Science because it's not offered at your school, then everyone's in the same boat as you so it doesn't matter as much. Remember with work experience, it's not about quantity, it's about what you learnt from it.
