    i already got counselling therapist before and it helped..

    getting treatment wish psychiatrist in 3/4 days and i know i will be able to recover and hopefully manage more of it..

    the only reason its getting a bit worse is because right now my life is really crap and full of depression...once i am gonna get the treatment and turn my life around, i know i can beat my OCD...

    plus i am going to live at home, so yeah....
    If you get rejected I personally doubt they are going to reverse the decision based on you then saying you have OCD. For 2 reasons 1st as PQ has said before they usually don't change a decision unless there was some mistake by them. You didn't provide them with "mitigating circumstances" so it's not their problem. 2nd your answer that "I know i will be able to recover" is nowhere near good enough. If it was that easy you should have done what was needed before your exams. "i recognised the problem late" will not be accepted either. Don't get me wrong. OCD, Medical depression and most other mental health problems are not tangible to people who never had to go through them. The admissions officer will take "the path of least resistance" n say NO.

    This is why they have laws for even say giving jobs for women, disabled etc. Employers take the path of least resistance. She'll get pregnant and go on leave, we will have to provide facilities for him being disabled. Why bother, just take a healthy male.

    Anyway the point I'm making is. If you don't get into the university you wanted but want to go to University this year go through clearing. Be sure you want to and can clear your issues before you go in barely a month. You don't want to waste money for the year and find you fail and have to repeat the year or get low grades. Remember at University they will not increase your grades on mitigating circumstances.

    A gap year sorting your issues n mitigating circumstances now resolved documentary evidence should get you in for next year. Best of luck with your decisions.

    You might have to reconsider, as I'm unsure as to whether UCL have a rowing team or not.

    OCD can make you last that long? Damn.
    no man, after i have finished masturbating, i sit on hours on the toilet seat because my sperm keeps oozing out....and i am scared if i get up without letting it all ooze out completely, then i might contaminate everything..such as the floor, things around me, my boxers, my clothes !!!

    (2)(3)(4) You posted first that it was presently getting worse then in a reply to PQ that you could resolve it in time to attend University.

    (5) You then shouldn't need OCD as an excuse for not doing well at A2

    Sorry shouldn't have got into this discussion on this thread. Take care.

    Most overqualified Lincoln candidate ever.

    I am the alpha and the omega, the unrivaled absolute, the tacit but apparent truth. I am greatness personified. Bow down before me.
