Hey, I need to some market research for my DT project, and I would really appreciate it if you could answer a few questions for me-you can answer with more than one option- the more information I get, the better!:

1) as a student, what dk you find that you struggle with most of all:
Mental health
Time management
Organisation
Understanding your schoolwork
Exam stress
Other (please specify)

2) as you are growing into adults, which of these troubles you:
Living away from home
Choosing colleges and university
Fitting in to new environments
Having/not having certain life skills you will need in adulthood (please specify- e.g cooking, housework)
Financial stability/finding work
Other - please specify

3) Has anything ever stopped you from taking up new hobbies/trying new things? If so, what was it?

4) Are there any problems that you think you share with other UK students aged 15 to 20 that you would like to be fixed (this has to involve everyday life, something that can be solved with a product- so, e.g, nothing to do with changing curriculum)? The more problems you can think of, the better.

5) How do you think your life as a student and young adult could be improved? What would make your life easier, more convenient, etc.?

Time management

2) as you are growing into adults, which of these troubles you:
Having/not having certain life skills you will need in adulthood (please specify- e.g cooking, housework) - financial literacy
Financial stability/finding work

3) Has anything ever stopped you from taking up new hobbies/trying new things? If so, what was it?
Didn't start learning Russian until lockdown because of lack of time with A levels

4) Are there any problems that you think you share with other UK students aged 15 to 20 that you would like to be fixed (this has to involve everyday life, something that can be solved with a product- so, e.g, nothing to do with changing curriculum)? The more problems you can think of, the better.
Lack of space for creativity or fun whilst in exam years

5) How do you think your life as a student and young adult could be improved? What would make your life easier, more convenient, etc.?
If everyone agreed on one main social media (I know it's highly aspirational, but I can dream!) to use so I didn't have to have them all downloaded - would reduce stress and allow me to use my phone for schoolwork more easily as I could have the apps I need downloaded such as dictionaries, without becoming a social outcast.

1) exam stress, time management, mental health.
2) Financial stability/finding work and Choosing colleges and university
3) Finding the time to or I get too stressed out and give up.
4) We honestly need more time to get things done, if we spend all of the time doing work, we won't socialise or have any fun. It could impact our future massively.
