Send Me Your Questions!

As you may or may not know, I am doing a Home-educated Q&A later on today and I need your questions! The deadline for sending in questions is 2PM so there’s still plenty of time.

I truly don’t mind what questions you ask and will not be insulted by them (trust me, you get asked some random questions when you’re home-educated). I just thought this would be a nice opportunity for people you don’t know what it’s like being home-schooled or don’t understand how it works to get a feel for how it works and what it’s like. There aren’t really any positive portrayals of home-educated people in anything and that makes me really sad and angry, so I hoped my Home-educated Q&A would shine a bright light on what it’s really like being home-educated. I’m really looking forward to doing this post but currently have a shortage of questions so please send me anything that you would be interested to know about being home-educated, it doesn’t even have to be a huge interest just a nagging curiosity.

You can now find the post this blog post is talking about here – Q&A On Home-Schooling, thank you so much to anyone who submitted a question! 🙂

You can submit your questions either in these comments, in these comments, you can tweet them to me @aninspiredteen or e-mail them to me at this address: aninspiredteen@gmail.com

I can’t wait to read and respond to all your questions!

That’s all for now!

    1. Does SATs mean A-levels?? You can get into college after being home-educated yes, because you can get the same qualifications as everyone else you just learn the stuff at home and then sit the actual exam at a centre. I find being home-educated very motivating as I have time to really focus on the subjects and things I really enjoy. I can assess my progress because I either use websites which tell me about my progress or I just test myself or get my Mum to test me so I know what stuff I need to focus on more. Thank you so much for your questions! 🙂

      1. I don’t live in America so I don’t know how someone home-educated would get SATs but I assume it’s the same as in the UK where you can learn the subject at home and then sit the exam in a centre 🙂

      2. Well, what’s the UK equivalent of finishing 12 grades and taking a big exam marking the end of it all?

        And btw, how is home schooling helping you work with other people? One thing I’ve learned after I’ve left school is that people are smart and a lot smarter than me, so I had to accept that and needed time to cope with the idea.

      3. In the UK people go through 13 ‘Years’ as it’s called and you finish year 13 at the age of 18 and then you go onto university of college. People who go to school work up until the age of 16 (year 11) and then take a whole bunch of GCSEs which is what qualifications jobs look for and they’re in things like maths, English, science and loads of other subjects. People can then leave full-time education and get a full-time job or go onto college or sixth form and get higher qualifications called A-levels or BTECs and those are the qualifications which you need to get in order to get into University so you can become more professional and highly trained in a specific subject. But if you’re home-educated you only need to take GCSEs and any other qualifications you decide to do on the side because really going to school for all those years is just leading up to Year 11 when you take your GCSEs. If you’re home-educated after your GCSEs you can either do A-levels at home or get into a school or college and take them there if you want and then after that go to University if you desire or full-time work. Even though people who are home-educated learn subjects solely at home they participate in other things that involves team work, for instance I’ve been volunteering in a charity shop for quite a few years now and I have to do things around the house and learn the more manual things that people do as they get older. I also went to college for a year which helped me learn to work with other people. But there are so many ways people can learn to work and communicate with other people without being in a school setting. I’ve also run a number of workshops for both people my own age and older and younger. There are just so many amazing opportunities out there for young people to do. Hope this helped and thank you for your questions 🙂

  1. I think I already asked you like two questions, but I came up with some more: who teaches you? Do you think you have more or less homework than “normal” students? How did you connect with friends? Did you feel left out when you got home-educated?
