Same as me Brad, I had a terrible score from VCE.

But a few years on I got my act together and was lucky enought to get into my course of choice....JUST I might add

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Re: Life after school for Supa R00...

congrats,
i can say now i regret not doing well in maths & english cus i stuffed around, but the subjects i enjoyed (Computor studies, Tourism & my Traineeship in Retail) i did very we'll in. i am by no means the smartest cookie, but im also not the dumbest (in maths i couldnt get my head around trig, maps & percentages, but did well in Algebra and other maths go figure, in english i was too buisy writing songs with my band lol) and i didnt do the QCS test because i didnt do well in the practice test so i couldnt be bothered.

good luck with your VCE, and new job.

Re: Life after school for Supa R00...

Do well in your VCE and then you can look at doing a small business management course either while or after your apprenticeship..

Having a trade myself, i was never going to make real money working for someone,, Get your cert and then open your own business.. Look at the big picture, being an employee working with something you love is great but EMPLOYING people to work on the things you love is heaps better..

Most tradesmen need to put the tools down after a few years, just to get a change of pace, not everyone but the same stuff can get abit tedious, whereas if it is your show you just employ another one :)

Anyway congrats on getting sorted so early in the year

Re: Life after school for Supa R00...

Congratulations Shannon it's good to see the direction you are moving to at least you can plan for the future now.But as mentioned before do the best you can in your final year of school and get the best possible results because you might want to change directions later on in your career.
Is this your brothers workshop ?
Cheers John
