I am really worried about my third granddaughter . She is taking her A's this summer and so wants to go to Cardiff university . Her brother studied there and now lives and works in Cardiff, her sister is studying there and starts her third year come September. She misses them so much , they have a very close bond, I have no doubt their mothers illnesses has caused the youngest to depend on the older two more than she would if their family life hadn't been messed up.
She had an exam yesterday and phoned me after she finished , she just couldn't answer questions,failed to finish the paper, yet has A in her course work. And this is just the start .
Thank god the three of them and I have a very close relationship so they turn to me if troubled . She is desperate to get to Cardiff , she wants it too much so it is really affecting her.
Her distress is causing me to feel anger for my daughter .
No idea why I am saying all this to you , I know all I can do is encourage, support and love her , and I do, she is a lovely , gentle seventeen year old , she lacks confidence because her siblings did so well in their exams .
The university has informed her they will accept her if her grades don't reach the AAB they required because of her course work but this doesn't seem to reassure her. I fear the rest of the exams and the August results.
