    Hi everyone,

    The personal statement is done and i'm basically hoping to send this off tomorrow however I need help with the education section.

    Basically my HND will be finished this year. As i'm older (28) i've done a few courses in the past and withdrawn from a few (took me many attempts to find the right one!) So far I've added in my hnc and my hnd.

    It would take me forever to go through all the units for the other courses and i'm worried it will go against me, however i'm also worried it will go against me if I don't mention them at all.

    Any advice?

    Hi there, I'm in the same boat as you, i have done a few courses before which i havent completed. I didnt put these on my application as i was advised to only put the institutions i have gained qualifications from - i didnt even put the first grammar school i went to, only the one i achieved my gcse's from even though i was just there for a year. Just hoping i was given good advice! I think it'll be ok though, uni's seem to be only interested in the qualifications you hold rather than ones you didnt complete.
