Glad to hear you're trying to keep busy - even if the mind does wander! How often do you work at the farm?

I'm waiting on results for a BTEC Level 4 HNC in Engineering. I did a Level 3 before that - but both were/are as part of an apprenticeship

Hi I'm Lucy, Level 3 Music Performance Student at Confetti and going to NTU in September with my unconditional offer for BA Music Performance. I'm hoping to get D*D*D* next week when I get my results. A bit nervous of how BTEC will mark my grades after looking at todays SQA's results but hopefully should be okay!

Thank you very much!

How did it go on Monday - are you still working?

My apprenticeship went really well and considering I was so unsure about it being the right decision when I left school, I'm so glad I opted for it. I've stayed on with the company so I'm in a pretty fortunate position as I don't have to rely on the grade to continue with anything (if that makes sense!).

No problem!

I didn’t finish Monday but thankfully i did today so i have the summer to myself haha!! Yay!!! I don’t know if thats a good thing as i now have no idea what to do haha!

Oh good!! Yes sometimes thats the best route as it can open so many doors and you may end up with a job at the end of it which you did!

Ah I see! As you're doing an Extended Diploma you'll be awarded a triple grade

In my first year i got a single grade as they split the course up so i had a foundation dip. Out of it so if i decided to scrap the second year i would still end up with a grade. Then you will get an overall grade next year.

However this might be different for different colleges
