About

I chose my GCSE options in year 8 and started them in year 9. It was then I felt like I had to decide what career I want to go in. I knew I enjoyed teaching as I've done a lot mentoring; I also knew that Religious Studies was one of my most favourite subjects. Really, I loved (still do) cooking the most so a career in catering was also something I wanted but then I decided that from my experience it's not the most stable career and I am an academic. My parents suggested I go into law so I focussed on that. I got 18 A* - Cs for GCSE. I got a scholarship into Oxford for a pre-degree law course which I did along side my A-levels. For AS I did German, Philosophy and Ethics, History and English language and literature. The latter 2 subjects I did not do that well in or enjoy as much so I dropped them in A2 and picked up a full A-level in IT. (I was also doing an EPQ but I had a lot of things going on in my personal life so I dropped that because I had a lot of commitments with my family and I was still going to Oxford too). I got a reduced offer to do law at Oxford but I decided I didn't want to do that anymore nor be in that environment again. I chose to do philosophy and R.S. and that's what I am doing now. I took a gap year though after my A-levels and I worked in a school as pupil assistant and mentor (And I've been tutoring since I was 15). Sorry for the essay!

CAREER ADVICE πŸ‘¨β€πŸš€

After I finish my education, I want to do a creative job which makes me happy. How can I get my parents to approve it when they say its not a 'real' job, 'you're not going to get paid well' or 'youll end up living on the streets if you keep thinking like that'? I know they want me to get a good job but after my GCSEs, I dont want to pick courses I hate or would rather not do. I am only considering them for the sake of my parents. Finance has always been a part in my life and I dont want to be proven wrong by my parents in the future and nor do I want to get stuck doing something I hate. I dont need an answer right away but I want to know so that I can relate back to this when I'm stuck in the future?

I can totally understand the situation you're in, but I'm order to help you a little more, I'm going to a little more background. So what field do y...
