Dear Tony – ask an expert

Tony Lewis, Educational Consultant, Qualified Tutors Inc.

Dear Tony,

We have a terrific son who wants to go to university. Our family is being told that his marks and average, (consistently in the low 70s range), will not be high enough for university entrance. Help!

Drs. M & S, Toronto

There are many other excellent opportunities for post -secondary education such as exceptional, vast apprenticeship programmes, college and technical schools. Explore these on the web and you will be pleased with the complex and challenging programmes and job opportunities. University is not necessarily the answer for every student. An “interest inventory” questionnaire may help him to make the best decision for his immediate future which can always be changed as he matures. You may all be pleasantly surprised rather than concerned!
