For the most part yes, I really am. I settled in well with my class and I have good teachers that aren't too strict with deadlines (though this may be my demise eventually). Some parts of the course are, of course, less thrilling than others but I like the security of doing a BTEC knowing my efforts don't just come down to a few exams at the end of the course.

That's a fantastic way to look at it. I always think that there's too much pressure in exam situations that not everyone gets the opportunity to prove what they're capable of.

Do you plan on sticking with Law at university?

Thats brilliant mate. With your skills, you would definitely be suited for a degree apprenticeship in Electrical Engineering. There are different companies that do this particularly Siemens and BAE as these degree apprenticeships are both academically and practically mixed. If you wanted to though mate, a HNC isn't a bad shout. I was just doing some further reserach, BAE do one in Manufacturing Engineering (with electrical engineering as your specialism) and it lasts for four years. The problem with doing a HNC is that it takes 4 years to complete which is equivalent to a level 4 (or first year of a degree). In a degree apprenticeship, you'll be on a higher salary plus it will take the same amount of time.

Here are some questions so that I can do some further research for you:
- Which part of the UK do you live?
- Are you willing to move or travel?
- What specialism would you like to go into?
- HNC or Degree apprenticeship?
- What is the salary that you are looking for? Some degree apprenticeships pay more than others
Thanks for your advice mate.
-so I live in Nottingham
- I don’t mind travelling - Based on my age I really don’t know if I want to do HNC or Apprenticeship.. but more likely Apprenticeship
- For the salary it doesn’t depend on me.

An apprenticeship is a really good way to go. I did an apprenticeship straight after my GCSEs and I'm still on with it now. I've completed a BTEC Level 3 and am currently doing a HNC Level 4 as part of it. If you approach a few people offering apprenticeships, you may find that the qualifications they offer as part of the scheme satisfies your own intentions anyway

By all means if you have any questions about apprenticeships feel free to ask away!

It is

Feeling okay yet nervous. All revision resources are made, now I'm just going over practice papers that are helping a lot to reconsolidate!
