Cheers Balladeer, I don't think it was that important otherwise I wouldn't have complained about it until now.

Congratulations everybody! Time really has passed quickly, hasn't it? As for my own personal development, I recently accepted an unconditional offer into a post-graduate course to become a careers guidance practitioner. Looking forward to it!

Congratulations Phillips!  You can't be any worse than the careers development people at my old school.  "You're over-stretching yourself!"  No, you'd be over-stretching yourself, you muppet.  Ramble ramble rant rant.

If it's any consolation balla the careers people at my school are excellent(well, above average at least), they got me into a programming course this week! Very Happy

Had another "exam" over the last two days: a two-day residential "business awareness" course that had such delights as the "business game", in which you make a guess as to what the market is going to do and watch as the random number generator defaecates on you, and a very tedious hour-long opening talk that overran by ten minutes. Better than I make it sound, but boy am I glad it's done. (Also, the second day started at 8 this morning and finished at 1740, which is ridiculous.)

I don't think it even matters. We're supposed to learn stuff from the course and take it into an online test, but I aced the three practice questions they asked at the end of the second day by using absolutely nothing from the course. Pointless. Mad

Yea, I wasn't expecting to fail anything but I had thought I'd get more B's than A's. Very pleasantly surprised!

Nice work, Mr. Duck! Hopefully that leads on to the things that you want to do - what is that next step?

Those are good choices! I did French and Physics (with Maths and General Studies). Good luck to you!

I too will vouch for languages and physics!  Plus, whatever Phillips and Beemoh may say, the computing jobs market seems opportune enough from my corporate perch.

I've always wished I'd done Spanish instead of Physics. I liked the mechanics side of physics but I absolutely loathed waves and light. Also taking the 3 sciences and maths didn't exactly leave me with a lot of variety.

Yea my careers advisor would agree with you on the computer industry being ripe for the picking. But he has a habit of desuading people from languages because he failed them when he was in school- so the rumours go anyway...

Why not become a biophysical chemist? It covers all of those!

I've tried the Bio side, I didn't get on too well. Now I study Chemistry and the physics side of that is horrible (though mainly due to the dodgy lecturers).

First of two bloody 'orrible exams today, on the topic of "Actuarial Risk Management". The course is two ring-binders' worth of material, both of which are needed for both papers, but in the exam proper I just bullshat for three hours. Three horrible hours of not really being able to feel my wrist. And there's another one tomorrow morning. Hissy fit
