    I have the problem of having a Polish strict mother and she wants me to do well in life so she wants me to do a-levels and go to a sixth form of her choice so i dont limit my options for what to do in my future. Yet i have my heart at BCA where i would be able to study equine studies level 3 ata an extended diploma and that would then let me go do equine vet nursing and general vet nursing . My mother is completely against the idea and hates it being brought up but i know i wont do well with A-levels as i've got minor problems that would hinder me and horses are my passion and life. No idea what do, do i convince her and just apply or do i do what she wants
