It's up to you and your mum.

Personally, I'd be disappointed if my daughter decided at 14 to be a hairdresser, but each to their own.

if thats what u want to do theres nothing at all wrong with it!
dont just take it as a cop out though cos its easy,i wasted alot of years hairdressing because it was easy and the careers adviser told me id never make the grades to be a nurse, im now nearly 30 and training to be a midwife x

by the year 2013,everyone in the world will be bald so this qualification wont be needed-the voices in my head told me this so it must be true:whistling:

thats terrible to be disapointed in your own daughter for such a reason!!
and it is not het mothers choise it is her own choise, as a parent myself i am here to guide my children in the right direction , not to be disapointed in them for not choosing what i want

i did a taster course in year 8 and quite good at doing hair, soo its a possibilty and i would say its more up to me not my mum, although i will talk to her and get her opinion

If you have a passion for it, go for it a friend of a freind is a fantastic hairdresser she teaches it and does shows and stuff and is very well paid in her field

Thats something i would consider doing in the future, so a GCSE in it would be helpful lol
#9
Doesn't really matter tbh, i doubt they would pick you over anyone else if you did that course, they will most likley cover the same things in a college hair dressing course if you were to take one after you left Year 11. Which you would have to no doubt to get the proper qualification.

Nothing wrong with it at all. Unless you want to be a dentist.

I don't think I'd want a 14 year old deciding on a career so early - they should be gaining a wide breath of knowledge, rather than focusing on a skill they could decide on later in life.
#12
but then again if i fail in hair dressing and tr to get a job DOING SOMETHING with only 4 GCSE's but one of which isnt relevant to the job i might be a bit stuck, maybe i should leave hair dressing until college ??

[COLOR="Red"]If you only get 4 GCSEs there is something wrong with you.

GCSEs are the easiest exams you will ever do, they are seriously so, so easy.

Get GCSEs, go to Sixth Form, go to Uni.[/COLOR]

Have you got some choice of BTEC to do, or is it all just just GCSEs?

btec ?? :?

Are you talking about a diploma...if so....AVOID!!!
#25
All kids at our school do a BTEC First Diploma - worth 4 GCSE and takes 6 lessons a week. A lot of schools offer those qualifications, sounds like yours doesn't though, which is a shame.
It gives people a chance to do vocational qualifications.

Our results are fantastic as all kids can get 4 GCSEs just by passing the BTEC

So? There are very few decent qualifications that lead on from these....plus uni's don't recognise them and it's totally plagerised work. Bloody poster work and dictated essays! Just boosts a schools pass rate. aaarrrgghhh!!

My advice is to look at your option blocks, pick 2 or 3 out of each block that you are good at and interested in, then speak to the teachers of those subjects and ask what is involved and what you will have to do.

If you can, go and observe some of the lessons (if you can get out of lessons) so you can see exactly what they involve,

Don't pick something just because a mate picks it :thumbsup:

Where do Uni's not recognise them? Our kids have never had any problems with that - a Degree is a decent qualification, yes?

Its not all Poster work and essays - there are practical tasks, and from September 2010 it gets you look at the career path you can take with each BTEC you study.

They have actually moved on since the 90's :thumbsup:

You need to do something you think will make you happy.
No point doing something that you don't enjoy - it will be a long 2 years
