During a railroad strike, the mother faces a 180-mile drive to send her son to school.
The RMT Union is striking this week as it seeks higher wages and more employment security.
However, this strike causes confusion for many, including one mother who wants to take her son to the GCSE exam.
Jacob, the son of Malta Kotralek, usually goes to school by train, but this week he will not be able to do so.
“They usually take 20 minutes by train from Flint. I’m lucky because we have a car. I’m worried about my family who don’t have a car.
“We live in Holliwell, so it’s a 60-mile journey from there to school.
“Additional traffic is expected due to the strike. This is additional stress during the test.
“I’m lucky to have a car, but what about those who don’t?
“I know there is a WJEC procedure if my child doesn’t pass the exam, but I’m worried about my family not having a car.”
Malta said that children usually use season tickets and driving is also an additional cost as gasoline prices are soaring.
She said: “I haven’t really solved it, but it costs between £ 50 and £ 70.”
