What are you thoughts on university and real-life working environment? how significant are they? Will you be using what you study at school in your 9-5 job? or is it just a bloody piece of cert . .

ummm i worked for 15 years after leaving school etc, and used quite a lot of what i had learnt..maths/english etc.

Back at Uni now, the stuff i am learning will of course be most useful in work. Besides you need the cert to get the job.

Some of what you learn will be directly relevent.

Some of the rest, conceptually so - schools are always behind industry - inevitable - by the time a course gets approved for teaching, aspects of it are out of date.

Some will be hobbyhorses of the school/teacher - and useless.

The ratio depends on the school.

>>> Besides you need the cert to get the job.

Not necessarily - but probably general enough to be good advice.
