    If you're looking ahead for moving out in a few years I reccommend getting a part time job and saving up some money. Look into how much rent costs in your area (or wherever you want to move) along with utility costs (gas, electric and water) and general bills such as internet and council tax. On top of that add food and transport and from that generate a general budget of how much living independantly will cost. This will give you a good idea of what moving out will be like. Plus learning to budget is better learnt sooner rather than later. You will have to wait til after college to move out because you simply won't be able to support yourself with a part time job.

    If you are planning to go to university then you can trial moving out then, as you will have some financial stabilty from student loans/ grants + any savings you build up working part time.

    If you don't plan to go to university then try to get a full time job when you finish college so you can afford to move out.

    It's important that you are at least somewhat financially secure when you move out. And aim to have at least 3 months expenses (rent, bills, food etc) saved up in case of emergencies or loss of income.

    As for not being able to cook and iron. Thats a simple fix, dont make excuses and take responsibilty and stop relying on your parents for everything, there is no excuse at your age. Start doing those things now and learn how to be independant.

    Only in very rare circumstances such as with mature students who have years in the industry related to the course do universities allow in students without the norm qualifications. And even then they are often still asked to complete English and maths competency tests before they're granted a place.

    The university doesn't lend you money, the company Student Finance does and they don't in any way take into consideration your credit history. The only thing they take into account is your parents income to determine how much money you are entitled to, or in cases of you having financially supported yourself for 3 or more years (they'll ask for evidence) or are over the age of 25 they only take your income into account and in most cases you'd for mature/independent get full grant and loan.

    If you want to go to university you'll need to take college seriously and apply yourself. But don't go just for the sake of it or just to move out, it'll be a waste of time and you'll be wasting student finance entitlement (you're only entitled to support on one course) and if you fail and then a few years down the line decide you want to take education seriously, you won't get funded.


    Honestly I think you should be looking into this yourself, just from your short answers it seems very clear to me you have quite a blase attitude about the whole thing. Start taking responsibility for each and every aspect of your life, or you'll be stuck in this rut doing nothing for the rest of your life.

    Running away never solved anything. Make a plan and act on it. Move forward and be resilient to the sh1t life throws at everyone from time to time.

    Good luck!

    No they don't just accept anyone, and as OU student you wouldn't get any money towards living expenses because with the OU you don't really need them in the same as as brick university student.


    With all due respect all the advice you need has been given to you and you still don't seem to be listening or taking it seriously. Uni isn't a ticket out of your household. If you want to move out start taking responsibility and stop "bunking college lol". You're 19, not a child so stop acting like one.

    Cooking and ironing are dead easy.

    Don't sweat about things that superficial.
    Try them out and you'll never worry about them again.

    If you're serious about moving about, you need to do a lot of research into this.
