    Hiya,

    I'm 17 and I am applying for A Level study at College in September (I will be 18). I am applying for Gov and Pol, Philosophy and Law or Applied Law.

    I wasn't the best in School but got a lot of work experience at my theatre company in Admin, Marketing and Fundraising, as well as some extra qualifications. I went to a SF College for 2 months and hated it after school (I did A Level Drama, BTEC Acting, 16th Century History and Maths - I dropped out) I continued my time at my Youth Theatre so was still doing things with my time that were productive. I then went on and did an Apprenticeship in Marketing where I worked full time.

    I now work as a Publicity Intern for a feminist theatre company and I am the Press Officer for Birmingham Green Party and chair the national under 18's Liberation Group.

    I feel lucky to have been able to still develop whilst struggling with what I wanted to do, but I now know I would like to go to Uni. I am a bit scared of starting College at 18 - not entirely sure what I am scared of but yeah.

    How different do you think it will be - how can I over come these differences?

    You definitely shouldn't be scared, chances are there will be a number of people your age or older doing A levels alongside you. Do you meet the entry requirements for those A levels?

    Thanks for the reply. I do just about, but also believe my experience working full time and also working in the political sector in my local area, with the council and having an experience and understanding of local/national politics already will help me.
