Lazy Spawn

My daughter, who is 19, is driving me around the twist. I am walking around the house in permanent disapproval. Her GCSEs could not be described as shining and nevertheless went on to take A Levels. She decided to take 3 – Music, Art and Media Studies. After the first year she dropped the Media Studies; it magically disappeared out of her timetable, colliding with one of the other subjects. Last week she received her A Level results, for which she received a D and an E. Considering that she is a Grade 8 pianist, who was coached at great expense (Hampstead Garden Suburb prices) specifically on her A Level piece and then received an E for ‘performance’ at A Level, it is hugely disappointing to say the least. The story does not end here, ha ha, that would be way too simple – like ‘Get a job! … and leave home!’ – oh no, the London university where she will be studying ‘Contemporary Music’ has accepted her with those grades, when in fact she was meant to be ‘striving’ for a meagre 2 Cs! What does that say about the university system!!? It’s a total money grabbing sham!
