Like many students across the UK, Ellie, a co-leader of the Resilience Revolution was due to take her exams this Summer however, as Covid-19 has placed the UK into lockdown, the summer exams have been postponed and lots of students around the UK are now in uncertain territory. Ellie has some top tips on planning out your future.

“Hi, my name is Ellie, I’m 16 and due to start college in September. As I no longer have to sit the Summer exams, I’ve been thinking a lot about what that means for me and what I would like my future to look like. Whatever I decide to do, I know it will take hard work and a lot of dedication, but I’ll get there!

In such a difficult and uncertain times like these, it’s easy to start to worry. I started to worry, however, I realised that I could control somethings in my life and other things are out of my control. I focused on the things I could control, with college being one of them.

I’ve been writing to Blackpool Sixth Form and getting advice for the future. They have been sending work to me, ready to start my A-Levels and keep my brain working and motivated.

I have my interview coming up, usually this would be face to face but we are using Skype as an alternative as like everybody, we are having to adjust! This will hopefully lead to an offer of a place to study and I’m excited about this. I have another offer on the table at Rossall Sixth Form and over the next few months, I will need to decide what is right for me and decide where and what I would like to study. Remember, some top tips are: focus on the things you can control rather than the things you can’t; find alternative ways to do thing such as interviews through Skype; email people and find support; organise yourself for the future but mainly, try to stay as positive as you can throughout all of this!”
