I messed up with it...It is really shocking how naive and careless i was. Gladly i have a chance but i've got the problem with the selection (although i have a priority and i think that most of you will vote for the same path)
I was choosing unis without deep investigation. For me studying in uk was like - oh wow, and i was really satisfied just with that possibility. I've ended up now with Middlesex Film, Video and Interactive Arts course as a backup and Oxford Brookes Film Studies. I've underestimated myself and looked upon unis 50-100 in the ranking table. Turned out, with my exam results (i'm not from uk so we have a different system) i could get in unis that are ranked 20-30 in the table. (like my friends). I suppose i could get even in better ones but i think the competition there is really huge and choosing mainly among them will be a huge risk. I received a rejection from Bournemouth though (didn't know that it was that good for such courses when applied rly, cuz i don't have lots of experience, only passion and interest). In choosing a firm I rly looked only on the ranking table. I didn't know that skillset (which middlesex has) had such an impact (has it?) Now i'm really wondering should i abort and take a gap year, to make a sobre decision (i've been thinking about different subjects, not sure which ones yet, cuz heard so much that those film university degrees were just a joke with nothing to do about with the industry and that students end up working in mcdonalds or petrol stations. I just don't want to end up on the street and have a degree which will partly (because the main part is myself, my deeds and talents) guarantee me a job with a normal salary that i could live on (that's natural, i think). I am really interested in film production but i think that i will cope with other courses (engineering, business, management etc etc) if my current choices are really lame. I thought about changing middlesex to firm (i think i've got the time) if its course is good. But I heard so much bad opinions about the uni and i'm just confused now. I've been thinking vastly about it for the past week and my head is going to explode
help with some advices?
though i think the majority will be for the gap year cuz it seems really adequate (but the problem is i have no preference among other degrees, i just can't decide, would like to hear some perspective and solid choices though, except medicine cuz i didn't do chemistry and biology (but for my country universities usually want something like 80% or 70% average among 3 state exams (i've got 82%) (math, english, and my home-country language exam which was compulsory and is completely useless) or average mark 4-4.5 in the school (i've got 4) certificate. But it is really pain in the ass to find this information for my country (estonia) on university websites and so i often don't know what are the requirements.
sorry for the spelling
Wouldn't say it was the most important decision can easily change.
U should have chosen unis from all ranges! maybe u should re apply
