    The new BTEC Health and social care spec tell us to find 2 work experiences and apply our experiences to psychological/sociological theories such as using the behaviourist perspectives e.g. Ivan Pavlov theory, psychodynamic perspectives e.g. Freud's theories etc...
    I have sorted my work experience out and I am meant to start tomorrow but I have caught a realllyyyyy bad flu (need medication which doesn't even work) and I don't want the children catching the flu, I would not be permitted anyways if I did want to go. My deadline is in December and I don't even know if I will fit 10 hours of 2 work experiences (=20 hours) during my school days! Bearing in mind, we have to go when we have a free period which is like 1 hour a day. I have a cold and it just wont go and I don't know what to do!!! I write alot btw, I write IN DETAIL and I am scared if I won't have the time to my coursework by december.

    You should be able, especially if you try to fit in some work experience hours after school. Considering the cold, don't let that bring you down. I remember in my Statistics A-level Maths exam I got really sick and had to be taken out. I just went back in after 30 mins when I stopped vomiting and could walk back into the exam hall. Still in pain, but at least they gave me the time I missed. Moral of the story, if you are really determined the flu shouldn't stop you

    What I meant is that you should be able to find a way around the flu, so you still end up getting your work experience. Since you've had it for a while, have you phoned up the school to arrange for a later date so you can get better in the mean time?

    P.S. Out of curiosity how long have you had it for?

    Yh try phoning them up and arranging for the work experience to happen next month, it isn't your fault after all.

    *I thought you might have had it for at least a month already. If it's just 6 days I wouldn't worry about it for now.
