My Plan

I am planning to go to university after my gap year at college. Presently I am considering a history course at York but Durham, Exeter, UCL and Sheffield are also possibilities. I have already obtained the necessary qualifications needed to enter next year but I feel it is important to gain an extra qualification in ICT, as my previous knowledge is very limited and experience will help me at university and beyond. I have already obtained my G.C.S.E'S and A Levels in History, Geography, Art and General Studies. I also have an AS in Biology. I play the clarinet and have passed my grade seven and I am also fond of dancing and have achieved my grade 5.I have also taken part in work experience helping me to understand responsibilities within the work place. I was also a prefect and took part in registration duty. My main focus for this year is to obtain an acceptable grade for IT, but alongside this I intend to continue with my interests in music and dance, learn how to cook for university, take part in a first aid course, do some voluntary work, get a part time job and join Archeological dig. My short term/immediate targets are to: Complete all assignments and classes. Complete my UCAS form. I feel that I may need some extra help in my I.T. course as I have very little previous experience and many of my fellow class mates appear to have completed G.C.S.E .I.T. or use the computer a lot at home. This makes me feel that I maybe a little behind experience wise. I am assured that I can obtain help from my subject tutors and from the student support or Connections if I need more general advice. I feel it is partly up to me to check my progress but I am certain that my subject teachers will also be doing so.

All about me!

Hi, welcome to my blog.
My name is Charlotte and here's a little bit about me. I live in Luton, Bedfordshire, England, commonly known as one of the most stimulating areas in the UK, winning the prize for one of the worst towns in the country. Well, it is not that bad but I can think of better places to be. I have two brothers and a sister who I will always be forever proud of. My sister went to Oxford University and my older brother is at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. My little brother is very lazy but appears to be more intelligent than the rest of us and is full of charm and spirit. Here is a few things about me. My ambition is to go to university (hopefully York) and to study history. After this I am uncertain about what to do but I like the sound of doing research for historical educational programs. I have chosen to do a course in computing as my I.T. education is very limited and I feel it is vital to increase my knowledge for university and my career beyond. Here are a few of my likes and dislikes:
I really enjoy reading, cycling, arts and crafts, going out with my friends, playing the clarinet, dancing, walking and chocolate.
I dislike people who are patronizing and make false accusations.
