    I've been given the opportunity to go to my dream school this school year however I cannot study all the options which I previously intended on doing. I am conflicted about whether I should take this opportunity and take up a completely new subject (which I'm feeling a little conflicted about) as one of the four, or simply stay at my old school and take all of the options I know I'd definitely want to take and enjoy?

    Please help (

    it's quite renowned for its great results and opportunities for the students (e.g. 50% of the students go to Oxbridge, and amongst the other 50% there are the other Russel group universities) - I think it'd be a fantastic opportunity I'm just having second thoughts about the situation.

    Well, I guess what your decision comes down to then is whether you want to sacrifice a subject you know you'd enjoy for a higher chance of getting into a good uni, or being able to study all four subjects you'd enjoy and do well in, with a slightly lower chance of being accepted into a high ranking university (there's nothing stopping you from getting into one whichever college you choose)

    If you're not happy with the subjects you're doing you may lack motivation and if you lack motivation, no school can ensure you get top grades and go on to study at a prestigious uni. You should go with what you think is right because the school might have an excellent record but they won't just hand out the grades. If you like the subject you're more likely to do well so think about what you want m- what would make you happier!
