I go to a grammar school in Birmingham, I got a fixed term five day exclusion from sixth form in y13. I was wondering, is this going to jeapordise my application to universities and UCAS? I am a decent student usually and am on course to be predicted AAB and apply to some really good universities.Thanks

Your referees could potentially mention it in your UCAS reference... 'Goodbye first-rate education, hello University of Lincoln.'



Why exactly were you excluded? The exact reasoning may make it more/less likely to be mentioned. Although if you do want to go to a decent uni and you're evidently intelligent enough (AAB), stop doing stuff which is gonna get you excluded in the first place!

Ouch. You better hope whoever your referee is doesn't add that in. If you're a "model student" otherwise it may be ok.

I thought this was what 7 -10 year olds did?
Sixth form and you are still messing with stink bombs?

How did they catch you?
What did parents say?
Hope you are using the 5 days to improve your recipe or buy new ones?


Nope you will be fine I wouldnt worry. You will get a bigger penalty next time.

A) my bad calling it a stink bomb. It was a smelly spray no smoke but nonetheless the smell was bad, no denying that. It was stupid I don't deny that and yes It was childish Ik and I do regret it.
B) parents are really angry, understandably so
C) I have a reintegration meeting coming up with sixth form and my parents
D) I'm on decent terms with the referee/head of sixth form

I was just thinking whether it will be readily available to see and just ruin my chances of doing a good course e.g law, English with high predicted grades I've got already.

i cannot see it will cause you problems. Schools make great play on their students getting into top universities as it looks good for them. Highly unlikely they will do anything to prevent you doing well as this backfires on them

oh, ok. i just wanted to know how the sixth form is. mind if you tell me about it in PM?


also to your question, it would be on your record and when you're applying to university I think they would see it.

Okay cool, it goes on my current school behaviour record. I a man not bothered about that, just the long term which I hear from you guys should be okay as my referee/head of sixth form or head teacher will probably try and back my case long term no matter how angry they were with me when excluding me

Wont affect you, just get the grades.
Youd need to be a repeat offender and even then referees are told to keep oy positive, I wouldn't worry.
Am only pointing out the age thing because it surprised me a sixth former would think that was a good idea.

I dont believe they would. Sounds like you are just trying to scare the OP.
