    I go to boarding school, when I was a day girl I was very motivated and hard-working but since I started boarding I am super unorganised and tired a lot. Should I stop boarding? It is normal that boarding doesn't suit everyone?

    Boarding school is not for everyone, but you have to have given it a real shot before bowing out. You should not just up and leave because you don't like the rules or that you have a very structured day.

    The main aim of boarding school is to encourage the development of real independence. If you cannot develop that independence, then you may struggle when you get to uni or have to leave on your own.

    My advice is that you give it a real chance and if you still dont like it, then you go back to being a day-student.

    All the best.
