I was considering doing creative writing/English lang at uni but I have had many problems with the college I'm in at the moment. Now I'm just considering racking up work experience by doing some vocational course in journalism. I don't care now, I've been put under enough stress and the last thing I need is to worry about not attending uni cause apparently that's the only way to become successful.
More often than not, if you get less than CCC at A-Level, you're not going to be a great student. As a result, you'll likely end up at a poor university, which may hamper your job prospects in the future.
Then again, A-Levels are not a perfect measure nor a concrete predictor of future potential. Someone with A*A*A* may do worse on the same degree course as someone with CCD.
The hard truth and what most people wouldn't want to admit to you is this, the job markets are competitive, and so are the jobs on a intellectual and physical level.
Those not up to the "mark" won't succeed. Answering your question, if you have sky high ambitions without the work ethic or intellect (or both), then some would call you deluded, and yes it is unfair.
I personally hated school, being forced to study so many subjects I disliked and had no interest in. I ended up with what could be the equivalent of CCC at A-Levels, would do the bare minimum at school, yet I absolutely love university, because I can actually work by myself and I do what I really love. I don't believe grades are a good indicator of someone's intelligence, simply of the amount of work they're ready to put in to pass an exam.
A level grades in no way predict university performance.. So its really unfair to tag "unfit for university" because of C-D grades....
Everyone deserves to try university and decide for themselves if its suitable for them....
There is a reason why Bill Gates left Harvard to establish his business and there is a reason why Natalie Portman graduated from Harvard first and then moved on to acting career...
Why do people like to give neg rep so much? I just asked a question, was it that bad?
Yes I think that university should be the privilige of those intelligent enough and hard working enough to get in, at the end of the day it is tax-payers money going into funding many thousands of pounds for each student to go to university, it seems a bit pointless to waste that money on someone studying media studies with A-level results of CCC.
as it shows that you are either not academically minded enough to attend
too lazy and have a bad work ethic
uni is not for everyone, only the top 25% should be attending, not the 40% that does now
