That is so kind of you Harlequin. We just wanted a general opinion of the University itself. What is the town like? In the meantime a friend has spoken to me and given me some information as one of her colleagues has a daughter there.
We will arrange to go to see it. It may be just out of DS's reach as he sometimes doesn't achieve what he is capable of in exams. It is up to him now to put in all the hard work.
Thank you everyone on here who have been so willing to share their experiences and offer advice. It still takes me by surprise sometimes at the trouble people go to. Good luck to all our children. May they all work hard and get what they want, and above all please let me still have a full head of hair in August!
