(Warning: You will most probably read something with very poor grammar)
So I just checked my application and it seems I got a conditional offer there...which leaves me in a situation. I know I have loooaaads of time to decide which college to go to (I got conditional from city and islington and that was the college I wanted to go to as well). City and Islington college seemed PERFECT for me; the people, the teachers, the opportunities etc...but they didn't let me study all my A levels However woodhouse did allow me to choose all my a level subjects and the thing is the exam boards for sciences there were AQA, which I'm used to and feel it would be easier compared to the OCR salters and edexcel exam boards for the sciences at C&I. I did love the english faculty at woodhouse to be honest and spanish seemed alright I guess. My plan was if I didn't do as well as I expect in english lit and I do well in chemistry and biology, I could replace the third a level grade with spanish (to suit uni entry requirements).
Spanish is a language I have picked up so quickly and easily (probably cos my second language is french) so I have confidence in the a level (I know it's a big jump but I am familiar with language a level as I'm doing french a level now, and I have seen the AS spanish topics).
The reason why I don't feel too good about woodhouse is cos I felt that the atmosphere was miserable on the open day, apparently all the woodhouse students do there for fun is party which isn't my cup of tea, you barely get any support and you have to be very independent, it's in the middle of nowhere lol and I have to take two buses to get there (not bad but the first bus takes forever to come sometimes), and I want to have a good time there but I feel that I would be surrounded by stuck up people.
Also apparently there are no work placements there and the lessons are like taking notes and that's it?
PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong and tell me your opinions on this college. In addition if you know about programmes for aspiring medics or like career programmes etc please mention.
