I'm Struggling To Be Positive About College
I really hate college so much. I'm currently in my second year of sixth form college and I'm hating it and I've got another year left. I am studying Health and social care BTEC Level 3, Science BTEC Level 3 and GCSE Maths.
When I started college last year, there was no dress code, my timetable was Monday 8.30 - 2.30, Tusday 8.30 - 1.00, Wednesday 8.30 - 3.30, Thursday 8.30 - 2.30 and Friday 8.330 - 12.00, we had a common room, we had several free lessons, we were allowed to use our phones and music players in some lessons. Now, because we have a new headteacher, (the Ofsted results were not good) everything has changed so dramatically and quickly, we have a stupid dress code, we are in a full school timetable (everyday, and only 4 free hours a week!) we get moaned at if we are seen with our mobiles or music players, we're not even allowed fizzy drinks or food from outside the college and this is getting me down, I've even cried because of it. My sister goes to a different college, she's doing a different course, and does Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, she loves it! College is supposed to be the best times of someone's life, but I don't want to be there anymore. I don't want to drop out and quit, so I've tried to find somewhere else, but there is nowhere else that does the same course and the course I need to get into university (I need to do GSCE science as I got a D). This builds a bigger problem as the places that do science and health and social will be out of my area!!! The college has messed up, because they told me I was doing fine when I'm clearly not when everyone else in my year is leaving this year, and I have to go on with no friends. I just really don't know what to do, but after college, I'm hoping to do animal science at university.
