I'm in yr 13 - I got a BBB offer from Southampton because I'm from a low income family - chances are im gonna go there.
I live in south London. its 2h30m away and coasts £25-35 each way - a season ticket would cost £3600. my mum suggested that I should stay home at the weekends if I go to Southampton.
Shes a strong catholic. She asked me if there's a reason why I wouldn't want to stay home at the weekends. I told her I would have no social life. she thinks I be at some strangers house doing ecstasy and being taken advantage of.
i dont think i could live like that - help me find more good excuses.
There are lots of other reasons, access to studying, sports clubs and other societies, getting some rest. It's also not a good idea to keep going home as you'll struggle to make friends as people are busy during the week and it will make you more homesick.
Definitely not a good idea.
If she's going to use money, ask her to use the money to transfer to your account when money is tight.
