Okay so here goes....i'm wanting to study architecture and applied to kent. The arch school there is new and everything so its pretty posh and has a cool director etc etc. Anyways i do the IB...and take all the necessary subjects ie. Art HL, Physics Standard, Maths Standard, ITGS HL etc. whatever, anyways they asked for an interview...(by the way i live in vienna)...so i flew the whole way there did the darn interview....and got an offer, which i was pleased about. Anyways they asked for 31 points (which is alright), 14 points in my higher levels (which is great too), a 5 in english A1 Standard (which is perfectly fine too!), and then a 4 in maths
(which was quite generous/however bare in mind that maths is my hardest subject). Anyways i talked to my careers advisor about it...and he was all like "send them an email, cos'they didn't state what level of maths you needed, and if they're thinking of maths higher level and i accept their offer then i'm doomed' (maybe thats not exactly what he said but it was something along those lines
). Anyways i wasn't really worried, cos' i thought you know whatever they MUST know i take maths standard or else they wouldn't have asked for an interview in the first place! right?...anyways so i send them an email and asked for which level of maths...and they said i need a score of 4 in math Higher Level
(mind you, they've put the 'higher level' in bold when they sent me the reply through email...)....anyways, i was just like wtf
....so i send them an email telling them that i don't do maths Higher Level, and if that meant that i can't accept their offer if i chose to?...and they were like...."under these circumstance we are going to negotiate with UCAS as to what we should do, and this may result into us rejecting you from the architecture course commencing in September 2006"...........i mean CAN THEY EVEN DO THAT
!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....i paid a lot of BUCKS to get to kent from vienna, and now they're wanting to tell me that the trip was all for nothing.
i know this might sound stupid, me getting worked up over this, but its a real piss off!....
please try and make me feel better........
