Interesting question. Yes I was fortunate that they did mostly. Although my Dad kept trying to persuade me to be a doctor instead – even during my degree! But he eventually came round. If you’re certain thats what you want to do and you enjoy it – keep with it!
I was lucky that my parents were supportive – I think they would have been whatever I decided to do. I do remember being shocked when I went to university and they weren’t able to answer most of things I was asking them to do with coursework. I guess it shows how quickly you advance beyond A-levels!
