Hey I'm currently a 6th former in the United kingdom, lower 6th form that is. To be more precise, this is approximately 2 years before university. People mostly look for what kind of university they want to go to this year. Some people are looking into oxbridge.. etc. I was looking, like those people mentioned above, in many universities from which i can get some decent education. I currently go to a grammar school, and school life is pretty boring. With school life being boring, i don't have much enthusiasm with tests. Not only am i not good at answering tests in general, but also the subjects i do at the moment (Maths, Biology, Chemistry, and DT) just bore the hell out of me. Then i looked up the Open university website, where no previous qualification is required, and it is mostly private study. Although i may be deceiving myself at the moment, i enjoy studying alone. All these aspects are convincing me to apply for a open university course. If i fail, fair enough, i'm not intelligent enough. But i want to give it a try. So my question is, has anyone tried/ is trying a course in open university? How is like?
