    Well annoyed, someone in my interview (out of the 5 mini interviews) asked me what other universities I've applied to? I'm sure UCAS has said many times they're not allowed to do that? I laughed it off and said 'can't remember on the top of my head'... what was I supposed to do. (

    No they're not and I have no idea. .it was at the end of one of my mini interviews and he was there making notes..he kept asking and asking... not necessary. I didn't want to tell anyway because it could make me lose my places if you know what I mean..not fair at all. He said 'it's important'..but I know it's not allowed ... so...Idk

    They took 12 days to get back to me but it felt like years haha. King's APEL was ok, took longer than the 2-3hrs they said it would take but I also have an essay based one to do for another uni which im kind of hating on
    Haha, I definitely know the feeling, they took exactly a week to get back to me about the tests but it felt like two lifetimes! Lol, they sound like so much fun(!) But hey, it's part of the process.

    That's what I'm thinking, not only that they've had major problems with me today because of other personal issues so tbh, I don't really care if I don't get a place, if they're being so arrogant with me now, I have no idea how they'll be like in September. They said I'm not entitled to any of my academic support/ exam concessions....or any of disability support for my health issues... so annoying.. I wanted to go there at first but now I'm really doubting it. They complained at first when I couldn't attend my original interview date to such short notice and how far I've got to travel to get there. . They full on shouted at me... tbh I've given up with that uni..

    It shouldn't do as they should never have asked in the 1st place they should know that they are in the wrong.
    From what you ve posted above I don't think you should consider going there anyway if they themselves say they won't support you, besides it d be down to NHS/ a needs assessment whether you re entitled to anything, not the university and they should know that. Also if they shouted at an applicant that screams a lack of compassion or professionalism. I d say taking it to UCAS means that future applicants might not be subjected to a question they never should have asked in the 1st place.

    That's true, they've really knocked my confidence down if I'm honest. .if they're not willing to support me, then will anyone else? Idk.. I really don't want to go there anymore so I'm guessing going to UCAS is the better bet. It wasn't fair at all, he kept nagging and making notes and he said 'why won't you tell me'...it's ridiculous, my parents aren't happy. .

    Don't let them get to you,the interviewer sounds unprofessional anyway so it's not your fault. Well I don't know what your health condition is but I can bet other universities would be much more supportive than the rubbish they said to you. I can understand why your parents aren't happy.

    I'll try not too, I had 5 different interviews because I had 5 mini interviews that lasted 7 minutes each and hopefully I will get some support, it's not even like it's a serious problem either so I didnt understand why they were like that. And thanks. ..I'm heartbroken tbh.

    Have a read of this, it explains why your interviewer was wrong and how to approach this http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...r-UCAS-choices.
    I m sure you will get some support, I can appreciate why you might feel heartbroken but try and see this as a positive in that now you know that that university might not be the best fit for you.

    Thanks I'll have a look later, do you think it'd be best to wait until I get result of the interview or just to get it done with asap? And yeah I've decided I don't want to associate with that uni again ahaha
