    Question Can I go to BETT?

    Okay, so I went to BETT last year while I was a techie. Now that I'm just a plain ol' student again, can I still register and attend? The show actually falls within my Christmas holidays so I wouldn't mind going along if I'm allowed.

    What a pain! Well, I can see why but there's a big difference between a university student and, say, a year 9 pupil.

    I already applied for a badge, which seemed to go through alright so I'll see what happens I guess. At worst, they can turn me away on the door and I'll have a day out in London.

    im sure you will be able to get in without a problem if you have registered online and also if you had been before. I once blagged my way into the ects show as a gaming journalist and got access all areas which was a good day out.

    Not as a student he can't no, it always used to state that students wouldn't be permitted.

    In the other thread I said he'd have to register her as a professional person who is allowed entrance.

    I could be wrong but I can't see anywhere where it states students can't go.
    Actually in the 'Who goes to BETT' section, it says 'anyone involved in education'

    Somebody I knew always put his job title down as "Head Teacher" on the BETT form - that way he was allowed to use the Head Teacher Lounge - which us mere mortals are excluded from

    (Of course, it would be wrong for me to incite anybody to do that )

    I guess after everybody reads this, they will be an awful lot of headteachers in attendance now
