    I like it because of its format-its all done on computer rather then on paper...I have done some practice IELTS tests in the book and TOEFL isnt much easier, as you have a lot of reading and analysing to do...but then again its different for everyone

    Thanks!

    Why do you actually need the test? As you said earlier, you're working in london for six years now and I always thought, one needs only two or three years in an English speaking country... But anyway, It won't be too much trouble for you

    Its because I havent studied here before and academic language is considered to be different to that used during employment...

    I had a prep book for the IELTS and found it easier than the TOEFL. But I'd had to wait too long to get a place for a test date so I took the TOEFL... I hope I didnt make a mistake lol

    Why are you so negative about yourself? Just give it a go!
    I feel like I have good reason to be, although I didn't exactly give you much to go on with that other post.

    It's worth saying though that it's not the academic side of things that worries me. I'd be looking to do a second undergraduate degree (with my first having been obtained through the Open University) and I just have big doubts about many things. Whether I'll be able to cope with the social side of university life; whether doing a second undergraduate degree so soon after my first would be seen as a big negative in terms of employability; whether it's the right thing to do at my age or even just the right thing for me as a whole.

    As you suggest I'm tempted just to give it a go, but before applying I would like to have reached a point where I'm at least somewhat confident about it turning out well.

    Well done to everyone who has got an offer,

    I have submitted my UCAS application on the 5th Nov, I am a mature student, well 22, but its over 21 so that makes me officially a mature student. Anyways, I did the Durham University Foundation year last academic year, which I successfully completed, and was due to start my Gegraphy degree last month, however I decided to take some time out, mainly to earn some money and sort some stuff out, so I have had to reapply to Durham for Sept. 2009, and have also applied to the below choices;

    BA Geography
    Durham
    Hull (Geography & History)
    Royal Holloway
    Sheffield
    Sussex

    Due to the fact I don't have conventional entry requirements, I applied to the Universities which are more accepting of non conventional entry requirements, I emailed universities to see if they would accept my requirements, I am hoping Durham will accept my application again, but I thought I would cover myself and make some other suitable choices which will hopefully hear a positive response from, fingers crossed. If don't get a place I am really not sure what I will do, wll have to cross that bridge when I come to it. It bad enough going through the UCAS process once, but twice, I thought it would be better, it isn't, very anxious to get a place sorted out, I am determined to continue with my studies and follow my choosen career.
