Ok so I’m going to London with my best friend for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who and I don’t know where we’re going to watch it. HELP Is there a charitable follower and Londoner who can share it’s tv with us. We’re nice, we’re queer and we are WHOVIANS.
Have you checked which cinemas are showing it?
hey for a fic im writing, do british ppl actually have visits to the school consellor before highschool and/or before college???
So we don’t normally use the word “high school” (though I have heard it, perhaps as an American influence) but rather “secondary school” (collège) and then there’s “sixth form” which is normally part of the same school but you can go to a separate “college” (lycée) if you want, also called “sixth form colleges”. There are also other types of colleges where you can get alternative qualifications or more general colleges that offer a-levels, like a sixth form, but also other qualifications. And then some people don’t even go to college/sixth form.
I think you may well more or less know all that, but I wanted to get my terms clear because I know that the different schooling systems don’t always get explained very well and terminology can get mixed up.
Anyway, to answer your question, I didn’t see a counsellor before secondary school, though I think there must have been lots of classes and things to prepare ourselves for it, but I did see the head of sixth form before going to college. I’m pretty sure this was compulsory (everything at secondary school is compulsory, unlike colleges). Basically he just tried to convince me to stay at the school for sixth form, even though I couldn’t do the subjects I wanted to do there.
If you have any other questions about British schools or anything, please feel free to ask me ^_^ (if you want ridiculously long answers anyway). There’s quite a lot of differences between the French and English systems. And good luck with your writing.
Whoever wrote this must have been on so many drugs
are you fucking kidding me? changing gender every time i sneeze is like my #14 dream (i have a lot of dreams)
think of the possibilities
I normally sneeze four times in a row, which people already think is crazy, so this would just make things even more interesting.
