    Glad I can be of help. At least now you no that education really isn't your thing. Try applying to places that look appealing to you (morrisons, tescos etc...) like once a week, then they are bound to consider you for an interview.
    I think that's a bit far-fetched. I'd be surprised if they consider me. Even if they did, I'd only get fired for laziness.

    There's no apparently about it - I don't want to go to them. A decent education might have salvaged something.
    So what do you want to do then? I'm not going to a top ten university but I'm okay with that.

    Lol I find it funny when people condescendingly look down on universities that aren't to their standard when they can't even obtain the good grades to get into the 'top' ones. Idiot.

    There are so many people on this forum giving out cryptic messages about their personal life and claiming their suicidal. So I'll say it again:

    Go to your GP. They'll hook you up with some counselling or some CBT which might help you have a more positive outlook on things and be able to cope with whatever it is that's going on.

    Waste NHS money on such a trivial thing? I'd never go to a GP for mental health, it's not proper health and not the GP's problem.

    Not proper health? I take offence to that. Without my GP's help I would be very poorly indeed.
    What do you propose you do besides sit on TSR and whine then?

    Nothing. I'm quite enjoying myself sponging off the state and parents. Having a rollicking good time. I jest.

    Not much I can do - can't go to uni, can't get a job...insane according to you.

    Insane? When did I say that? Stop wallowing! Are you disabled physically or mentally? Because I bet you actually CAN if you got off your a*s and try and be a little proactive.

    You know what? This is incredibly boring. Good luck!

    Can what? I'm going to bed now. Please leave a nice message for me to wake up. It will give me a reason to get out of bed before noon for a change.

    Okay. First, get a job. If you want a job, you can get it-you may have to apply to 150 places on gum tree, but you will find something for the mean time. You can't just blame it on the world around you.

    Secondly, am I missing the point or something-why can't you get a first at those unis? It's not as though you have to go to a Russell Group to get a first. Several of the universities that you mentioned were good universities, so I don't see why you're complaining.

    And thirdly, if that internship that you want to get in is that hard, maybe you weren't meant to do it in the first place. Compromise: somethings just aren't plausible. My friend realised her A Levels weren't good enough to get into Med school (something she had wanted to do her whole life) but she compromised and applied for Physiotherapy instead. She's now incredibly happy where she is.

    You CAN go to uni, you just need to swallow your pride and maybe not go to AAA institutes. Your complaining about how Sh*t your life is, theres a solution to do something about. I honestly cannot understand your logic, you dont want to go to a university that isnt a top one, so you'd rather be on the doll, living with your parents.
    I dont know how you can have any pride doing that
