Hey im currently doing my AS levels at a quite respectable all boys grammar sixith form.
I moved there from my more funnier and more scocial mixed high school, you all know what i mean where all your mates were from familys with mercs etc.
However the school i'm at now is like that and i always felt having something more than the most of them as they would have no clue on 'street' i'm no gangster but you know what i mean when people who have been shielded from people comming into school looking for fights etc and the majority of those ending year 11 just go into work.
Now where this comes into applying to Uni, i got class results for my gcses mainly B's 2 A's 1 A* any who i was curious how Uni's look on me comming from a 'lesser?' background with my old school etc?
Also i can just as easily put the name of my area which is the biggest council estate in Europe and i would feel that prehaps they would look down on it and think of me as some scally? but i'm sure somewhere that Uni's have to accept x number from 'disadvantage' backgrounds any 1 have any help please let me no!
I'm also doing my AS at a respectable all boys grammar 6th form, and use words like "scally". Maybe it's the same place?
I used to go to Catholic comprehensive and i found that there were alot of down to earth people there, at Dane Court (Grammar School) there seems to be alot of people up their own arse, lol. Mind you, you don't get any bullies or anything....
No its not St Beades, nothing is wrong with Wythenshaw i'm not ****ging it off, most of my mates from my old school are from there, im just wondering wether Uni's will be annoyed or in favour because of this?
I've been told they have 2 accept x amount from disadvantage backgrounds so hopefully luckily for me that will work in my favour
