Hi all. I'm 21 years old and a mature student returning to education to do an Access to Higher Education Course with my local college. Tomorrow is my induction.
Basically, I talked to an adviser months and months ago and accidentally told her I had one too many GCSE's than I have (I only have 3 at C level but I'll explain further...), I said I had 5 (Woops!). I then went to sit an entry test, then I was invited to an interview with the tutor -- she said she was impressed with my entry test. I took my certificates along to show how many GCSE's I had, having only 3, and 5 is the requirement for the course. I'm also hoping to enroll for University next year, so she advised me to enroll for the Mathematics GCSE to get an extra GCSE.
Anyway, she understood that I only had 3/5 of the GCSE's due to mitigating circumstances (I suffered from depression for many years which really effected my school work and out-of-school coursework, and was hospitalized several times for my depression / suicide attempts).
Tomorrow is my induction and I've been told to take evidence of my grades, even though I got an offer through the post, I'm not sure if that was just an informal offer?
With 3/5 of the GCSE's required, even though told I have an offer and attending an interview with the tutor, can I still be rejected from the course on the Induction Day?
I'm worried I'll be rejected from the college, I have a passion for learning despite my bad grades in the past, my anxiety is kicking in though... :/ ... I don't know what I'd do if I got rejected, I consider this my last shot to turn my life around really.
