So much ****ing **** as stress!!!
Can anyone please help me out here, I have a huge problem.
So I am first year studying a humanities subject at uni.
However sciences had always been my favorite subjects (not chem all the same, more physics) however I foolishly didn't take them to A-level (biggest mistake of my life)
So instead of continuing down a path which I feel is not going to benefit me and one I feel I shouldn't be on I am going to go back to college at take maths and physics A-levels.
I had planned on returning to the same uni I am at, however today they told me they want all the A-levels in the same sitting, mine 1/3 of mine obviously is from an eariler date.
This has devastated me as I really wanted to go back there.
I have applied for an access cert. in foundation engineering in just one year, however as my application is late and I'm not here until mid-july after next week I may not get on this course. Even if I did, the uni probably has a cap as to how many access course students they take, and they will only let me do the BEng.
They gave me the option of the 'uni specific' access course, I do maths modules through them, however only 2 places last year got onto the course I wanted plus they were probably people who lost a leg saving a baby from a shark and had to take time out of education, those type. Plus, again no MEng.
I'm going to apply for foundation courses tomorrow, these again (if still taking applicants) are probably looking for either the tragic story type or those that have been working as craft engineers since post-16 and decided to go to uni.
Aberdeen offer a summer school with entry onto the engineering course and as I apply through UCAS (getting admissions to make a note) they can give me a conditional offer and therefore if I get one, my place is safe, in other words I wouldn't have to compete with the other access course students.
I really am in a ****ing mess right now
