I finally got in to Uni!!!! - August 31st 2011, 11:28 AM

On A Level results day I found out I hadn't got into Uni. Then when I got my results I realised there had been a mistake and I had got the grades to get into uni. Then I contacted the Uni to let them know and they said they would keep me a place. Then once the mistake was corrected I phoned them and they said I hadn't met the offer because I wasn't doing the correct qualifications. There offer was unclear and I thought I had met the offer. I sent an appeal off yesterday and I got a phone call this morning apologising for what has happened and offering me a place

I am going to uni in 2 weeks so I now have a lot of things to sort out. The accommodation is full so I have to find somewhere to live. This is going to be mental. I am so happy though. I honestly did not expect them to change their mind when I appealed. I haven't stopped crying yet...

THAT.IS.AWESOME.

I'm so proud of you.

Shame it involved so much confusion and hassle, but at least it was all worth it in the end.

I just hope you find somewhere to live now!

Congrats! I am so glad you were able to get things sorted out. It sounds like such a hassle!

Ahh excitement.

Re: I got in to Uni!!!! - August 31st 2011, 07:03 PM

Yeah A Level results day was 2 weeks ago so it has been a pretty long wait. I really didn't expect the appeal to do anything but I had give it a try. I still can't believe it and still feel pretty sick.

I would have had a month to sort everything out if all this messing about didn't happen. I have found some private halls which is really nice but a bit more expensive, it is £10 a week more but has an ensuite and tv license included to I will be getting my moneys worth. I don't have much of a choice other than to live in a hotel or something

Yeah there is a TV and freeview in a lounge but the TV license covers the whole flat.

I am going to phone them tomorrow and try to get it sorted. The uni have said I can wait and see if someone drops out and they have a accommodation place free but there is a waiting list. I would prefer to just get what I can before the private halls are full too and I end up with nothing.

That's brilliant. Well done for sticking through it despite the disappointments, and congratulations for getting the place!
Good luck for finding some accommodation.


Do you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do, then I should warn you - you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: The trip of a lifetime!


RIP Granddad Terry. I'll miss you.

Re: I got in to Uni!!!! - September 2nd 2011, 09:53 AM

The uni have found me some accommodation
It is a private house and I will be with 3 other girls who are also first years on health related courses.
The landlord is also a member of staff at the Uni in the health department.
It is more expensive than the uni accommodation but is cheaper than the private accommodation I was looking at. There is also a chance I could live there for the whole 3 years of my degree.

I am relieved I have a place to live now as that was my main worry so I am able to start getting really excited.
