GYG Slav Engineering
About me
So lets start a bit about me. I'm 18 and I have finished Aeronautical Engineering Level 3 Extended Diploma at college. I managed to Get triple distinction and I'm still waiting for my updated result. So during 2020-2021 I'm taking a weird Gap year of doing another year of college while i apply to degree apprenticeships. So what course am i doing this year?
Well IT level 3 foundation diploma. Why you may ask. Well lets just say that for one of my degree apprenticeships everyone there did a levels of maths physics and computer science and i did well , maths physics, business , D&T around aircraft.
Grades
Lets start with Gcse
  • Maths 8
  • Double Higher science 8-8
  • English Lit 5
  • English Lang 6
  • RE 6
  • History 7
  • Business B
  • Polish A

Now for college
  • Engineering lv3 Foundation Diploma Distinction had all distinctions in my coursework year 1 of aeronautical engineering
  • Aeronautical Engineering Lv3 Extended Diploma DDD but i was predicted D*D*D and im still awaiting confirmation of my grades

Goals for 2020-2021
Apply to degree apprenticeships in engineering and get one ideally in mechatronics, Get a Distinction in IT level 3 and get my citizenship. Also be nice to get more friends and go out
Goals completed
Get an mx5
Life aspirations
Have my own business in well engineering and hopefully in making race cars.
maybe get married eventually

notes
  1. how does one blog?
  2. first goal of buying an mx 5 is complete on the 13/09/2020

Hi :wavey:

Best of luck for the year ahead, I am also looking to go into engineering but I am thinking of going down the university route rather than the apprenticeship route - however I am keeping my options open

To blog on here you basically give life updates every so often - on GYG blogs they are normally more academic based (you may talk about struggles with the course your doing, when you've applied to your apprenticeship, when you are (hopefully) accepted etc..., but you can also give updates on how you are doing - have you been to any cool places? Do you have any book recommendations for other people? It is basically an area for you to talk about anything and everything Hope this helps.

Hey Looking forward to following your journey. What got you interested in engineering?

I've just finished an engineering apprenticeship (not at degree level though) so if you've got any questions I'd be more than happy to help!

It was in aerospace engineering and I loved it. I enjoyed the fact that I could try different areas before settling in one. I studied one day a week and got to do other things outside of the regular day job too

So update everyone I bought a car, an Mx 5 my first dream car :
Pros:
It's amazing
It's a mx5
Cons:
I'mma need to get a job to pay back a small loan i took from my parnsts
I'mma need to put on hold my pc build as I want to well, do the sills on my car as there good for another year but its a hit like.a infection its OK now nit in a year its gonna be awful, so imma need to spend a grand on that as well imma need to. Do it anyway but I live this car, mr2 will hopefully be soon in the summer time as well and well that's my aim.
However if I find a job until december it's a struggle as I got one exam in December and I hope I'll ace it with work college and working on my car
