Just been to our sons 6th form school for a UCAS meeting, dos'nt seem 5 minutes since he started 6th form. I know some of you are at Uni or have been to university. Why did you want to go, How did you find the whole process ? How did your parents cope with it ? To me as a parent I feel its a minefield with what he has to do, picking of courses, applying,excepting offers etc etc, it seems so much to take in at the moment never being in this postion before, The school seems to be switched on & my lad dos'nt seem too phased by it all.
One of the things that was mentioned that 80% of students that take a degree dont end up using it for thier future employment, I cant understand that ! why spend 3/4 years doing something that you might not use. Are you taking a degree that wont be used for future employment ?
many thanks for any input.
