    Ah, I had ZERO work experience when I was writing my personal statement, and nobody questioned my lack of it. Is it a prerequisite for your subject?
    What did you apply for ? And yes work experience is part of the requirement

    Can't, it's been moved to a section where you can't post anonymously. Otherwise there is usually a box that says 'make post anonymously'.
    tfw you want to confess something heavy but there's no anon

    I keep my emotions to myself, I don't like people seeing me at my weakest.

    So, most people think I have no care in the world when I am probably one of the most worrisome people around.

    I had a fight with someone a few days ago and it was my fault and I feel guilty now.

    There's my friend's birthday party tomorrow night, I'm not 'fixed' enough to party and I couldn't tell him lol, so I lied and said I'd be busy.

    I didn't write about work experience in mine and i still got 4/5 choices. And you can always do some volunteer work and write about that.

    Thats ok, you only have 3 choices with the birthday party.

    1) You dont go-but miss out on the party ofc

    2) You go and say you have time now -this is the easier path

    3) You go and say the truth ( you dont have to say everything, just say you were unsure, or not in the mood at first)

    -this assumes the birthday person isnt the person you fought with.....

    I need advice on this guys. I applied to a really good sixth form and they told me to come and enroll on the 26th of August at 9am. However, I live far from the sixth form but I am supposed to move to a different foster home this week. So my foster carer decided to wake up late and we ended up leaving at 9 even though my meeting was at nine. So I arrived in the sixth form at 11:45 and I was the last one to be called in. The last few people before me we're getting rejected simply because the spaces were filled. I became quite angry and frustrated because if I had come earlier I would've got my place no problem. The principal called me in and we discussed poetry; he then told me he enjoyed the discussion but he couldn't offer me a place. And the thing I did after that kind of depresses me and I wish I never done it. I applied to the school last year and they prioritise different people in different predicaments. So in July, I was taken into care and I was meant to inform the sixth form but I didn't because I felt embarrased. If I did inform them then I would've gotten my place because I got a high score in my entrance exams and interview. BUt I told the principal about my situation AFTER he rejected me. And I knew after that he'll offer me place. Now I really don't know if I should go because I feel like I cheated the system and will never feel like I belong. It will always haunt me; but the thing is, I've wanted to go to this sixth from year ten.

    I have four different offers from other sixth forms but I'm not interested. What do I do?
    It isn't cheating the system, it's working with the system. Like you said, you would've got a place if you'd said earlier. My thoughts would be that it's like not using a calculator or a text in an exam. Yes, you could do it without the help, but it would ee silly to refuse the help the system gives you! I get that you feel embarrassed, but don't let it dictate your life, I guarantee if you turn it down then you'll be haunted by 'what ifs' for years. Go for it! All the best to you!
