    Ah.

    I'm off to the London School of Economics though 'darling'.

    Go ahead though, do you need a shovel or are you ok to keep digging yourself into that hole.
    Btw, graduating as an old man really is no feat. You've had it so much easier than A-level students, who actually have to achieve high grades. You just come along and are able to say, 'I'vE gOt No QuAlIfIcAsHuNs BuT lEt mE iN aNyWaY bEcAuSe I'm 'MaChOor' and the uni's say 'OK'.

    If I was in your position, I'd be embarrassed that I wasn't going to Oxford.

    Where do you get off being so cruel to people? Why is it that someone who is doing different to you is obviously of less importance and status. I think you need to grow up. For gods sake I'm only 17 and I'm more mature and understanding than you will probably ever be.

    I'm 21 years old.

    I achieved at college a couple of years ago:

    English Language A
    Sociology B
    History B

    I've needed to boost my application to gain entry to the LSE.

    I'm here all day sunpro, what can you throw at me?

    ABB; I got AAAab. I could have got into LSE 3 years ago, but didn't want to go to London. You've still had it easier than the vast majority of A-level students. Any old muppet can get ABB and then do an Access course alongside a load of old dropouts; they're ******* easy.

    I don't really care whether you think I'm B.S.ing.

    I've told you once, it's part of the Russell Group, and no I'm not going to say which one it is because I wouldn't want some 21 year old Access course fool stalking me. I got a 2:1 in my first and second year though (I'm a third year) if it's any of your business. Anyway, my prospects of working in New York are relatively high, seeing as I've already spent the last two summers working in Canada.

    Mate, I can't speak for Who2004uk, but I don't like you so I sure as hell won't be stalking. So come on which uni, or are you ashamed?

    First of all, that's nonsense - Oxbridge is essentially meritocratic and does not lower its standards for mature students.
    Anyway, sunpro, do you realise what a nasty kind of person you appear to be? Your posts are just vile and you've obviously got a massive chip on your shoulder. Pathetic.

    It's obvious Sunpro is an enormous troll. It must be difficult for you, Sunpro creating an anonymous account on the internet and being a complete moron. I do hope that one day you are happy enough in life so you don't feel the need to come on the internet and act like a complete moron.

    Oh what a poor, dull, loveless life you must lead .

    I do hope things get better for you sunpro. Good luck with your degree and I hope by the time you graduate you've discovered better things to do with your time, you sad, pathetic individual . xxx

    Awww thank you. Your good wishes really mean a lot to me. I'm going to go to sleep tonight knowing that AshMcD, who is 25 and not yet at university, and even when he goes it's only going to be LSB to do a much easier version of nursing, wishes me well. It really touches my heart.

    We're dragging this thread off topic though. OP, do an apprenticeship only after you've done A-levels so that you've got them to fall back on.

    I should change that, I'm doing chemistry. Not that I would've been in any way ashamed of doing radiotherapy .

    Good bye dear xx.

    Did you not say you havent been doing anything for 3 years? My guess would be you took too long to take action. By the way, what led to you from being dismissed from college?

    nothing major i guess , it was attendance , work was handed in but attendance got to a point where i was the lowest in the class , but i had reasons which afterwards they understood , i didnt know i wanted to do something in the practical area like plumbing , i always thought i would go to uni doing business or IT , but i always have issues , i guess making money is my only drive now

    well i guess i could kill myself noone else would notice
