    I have applied for the Early Years Educator course which a space for level 2 or 3 has been offered to me depending on my GCSE results. Anyway, I would like to know how (from a student's point of view) college life would be like on this course. Is it stressful at all? Did you find it easier and better than you found secondary school?-answers to questions like that please.
    And I would also like an idea of what material I am expected to have, what books do I need for this course, what sort of stationary?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Hey !
    Im literally coming to the end of my second year studying childcare and education going to college was the best thing for me. College gave me confidence I never knew I had,as when I left High School I never thought I'd be able to reach above a C. It was a lot of work and still is but it is very rewarding I enjoy every single day and every single word I write.
    Yes there may be days where I be like why am I doing this it's so difficult but at the end of the day, when I get my results from my course work I can see every bit of effort I put in paid off.
    Don't let this put you off the course it's amazing and I wouldn't change it for the world.
    It has opened up so many doors of opportunity for me and I'm in a position to choose whichever way I want to go.
    College life was definitely the one for me the transition from High School was the best way of gaining Independence Of My Life and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Thank you so much for your reply! It sounds like you were in a similar situation as I am. I am so anxious about getting my target grades so I can get in to this course. and do the level I want to do. It's good to hear that someone in a similar situation to me enjoyed the course. I am so excited to get school finished and over with so I can actually do something I enjoy! Once again, thank you for your replies
