I NEVER GOT THAT LETTER
THEY SAID
WELL ALL WE CAN DO IS PUT YOU ON ANOTHER LIST OF INTERVIEWS BUT WE CAN'T GUARANTEE ANYTHING
AND I SAID
OK
AND THEN HUNG UP AND STARTED SCREAMING AND CRYING
ALL BECAUSE THEY ARE ON TEAM FRICKING BUILDING COURSES

Thats so rubbish, the Royal Mail is such a joke. Maybe you should put a turd in a box and post it to their head office (a la Sharon Osborne!)

Wow i can only imagine how you're feeling right now! I would also call up royal mail and have a go at them, tell them they jeopardised your future and you want compensation in the form of a full scholarship!!
Don't worry too much though, I take it as a sign that you'll be better off somewhere else? I know that's not comforting but it's worth thinking about.

you could vent your anger here too....

surely if its their fault and royal mail admit to it then the uni should honour your application?

do you know that the university had the correct address etc?

Even if it had been a one off I would have been pissed off but
4 birthday cards with money in them
my mum sent a tax return and it dissapeared the person who's it was was fined a £100
my friend has had cheques stolen and the names CHANGED on them from gigs he has done
all the post we get is covered in grease from their machines
our now ONE post is supposed to arrive at 8am, we're lucky if it gets here before 1pm

What's the point of having something like the Royal Mail if it doesn't bloody work

and as for the University, even though i was surprised they said they can't promise anything because by sending it, it was out of their hands and into mine

Have you always had these problems with Royal Mail?? I'm really shocked (and would be majorly annoyed in your situation) about the crap service you've had- I've never experienced that before (things like mail covered in grease-euch!) Do your neighbours have the same problems??

Well first of all that link doesn't work...ironically I think a quote about how I would have sent it by post but I was scared whether or not it would arrive

If I don't go there I'll end up at London South Bank and I don't want to go there but it's where I want it to be, I don't want to be stuck in Tottenham or Yuppie filled Farnham

And as for the correct address, to make sure they went through all my details with me over the phone and they were all correct

This is insane, it's like the seriously most ironically horrible thing that has EVER happened to me
It took so much consideration and thinking to actually get this far and for it to be screwed up by some stupid school leaver that can't read an address properly....it's sickening

Slightly off topic but if you're sending something important and send it 1st or 2nd class from the post office you can ask for a Certificate of Postage (or something) which basically means you're insured if the letter/whatever gets lost in the post.

Without the certificate royal mail will take no responsibility - with it they're yours

I worked opening Reader's Digest replies all summer, and you would not believe some of the things we had send to us. You could kind of understand may be one or two letters slipping through the system and ending up in the wrong place, but in each box of 300 envelopes chances are there'd be at least one for the wrong address. We quite offen got letters in plastic bags because they'd been "contaminated with an unknown substance", blatantly someone had pissed on it!

our post at home is much the same, and to make matters worse, we built our house in between two existing ones, and couldn't think of a name so we live at 141A but hardly ever get post. We have to literally beg our neighbours for post cos they're fed up with getting ours ll the time due to the lazy post man

Its no guarantee it'll get there and, it isn't insurance against loss, its just proof that you've posted it, so if it doesn't get there you canprove you posted it, useful when your returning goods ect

Was the person on the phone at the uni understanding though?? I had a few problems getting predicted grades sent to the unis I've applied to and I found the admissions secretaries were really nice and put notes on my application explaining the difficulties I had had etc.
