So AQA I ask you this, please explain to me what other A level subject does this? I do not want a scripted piece about your dedication to inclusive education, I want an A grade answer citing examples, comparing and contrasting your chosen subject to the Archaeology syllabus.
Sometimes they will want to curl up and cry and it might make them very anxious but it is all a necessary part of going it alone. They can't say no to a team day at work because they are afraid they might be asked to do something they don't want to and haven't learnt to say no yet.
A student's health is already compromised at the beginning of the university year, with the infamous 'Freshers Flu' and countless self-induced hangovers. An old mattress is likely to trigger additional health problems, as well as leading to poor sleep.
Durham is my home now, just like Istanbul was before, and Aleppo before that, I don't know where my journey will take me next but I just hope that when I return to Syria I will be able to contribute to a brighter future.
As a Jewish student who has experienced online anti-Semitic abuse, the urgency of the report initially seemed comforting, a call for all those fighting against racism to stand united. Reading the report however, I was dismayed to detect severe shortcomings and underlying bias.
The majority of this strategy is aimed at the Muslim community. It has an alienating effect of a community already experiencing discrimination and rising hate crime. In the past, it would have been others and who knows who it might be used against in future. It is all entirely counter-productive. There is no evidence that it has prevented anything. It is time for a major review of the strategy and a fundamental rethink by Government.
The way the Tories voted, turning their backs on the evidence of modest measures which will support social mobility, slams the door in the face of every young person who wants to get on in life. Their claims that they want to build a country that works for everyone are nothing more than empty rhetoric. They talk the talk, but they have no interest in walking the walk.
When I first heard archaeology was to be scrapped at A-Level I was not only surprised, but devastated. This is a subject that teaches our students about what it is to be human. We learn about the material culture left by our ancestors from all over the world. We discuss the concepts of culture, politics, art, identity and we do so with an open mind. Even after several years of teaching the A-Level I still find new material that keeps me in awe.

When Amber Rudd recently announced that she would be continuing the purge of international students started by Theresa May, my heart sank. Brexit has already damaged universities and their ability to attract students and staff... To continue to include students in immigration targets would be to pursue an economically damaging, right wing ideology, based on dodgy evidence, against expert advice and without a mandate. Surely Brexit has enough of that already?
Moving in to a new place at the start of term is exciting but before you get settled there are a few things you must do to make sure you get all your ...
University managers cannot be allowed to pretend this will resolve itself. They cannot continue to award themselves higher salaries than the counselling budgets and claim there is just no money. They cannot continue to pass the buck onto overworked staff. It is time our institutions face up to the mental health crisis.
The HMC's unfounded attack on Freshers' fun demonstrated that the booze-bashing brigade is slowly gaining momentum. Ultimately, it needs to shaken, stirred and shoved out of our lives. And, after all the online polls in the world are carried out, there's only way to do this: Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps, please.
Mentoring programmes offer an effective way for students to gain insights into the professional world, and help to navigate the confusing undergraduate years. It's clear that universities increasingly value how mentoring can boost their students personally, academically, and professionally.
By now, most new students up and down the country have landed in a brand new city and are in the midst of Fresher's Week. The following few tips are...
