Let me tell you the background first:
I failed my AS levels except English (C) due to personal circumstances. As a result I took off a year from studies. During that time I moved out of my house and the area I moved to could not provide me with anywhere to retake my a-levels. However, the local Uni ran courses that would end up getting me a Certificate of Higher Education. So I started the courses and have 40 credits left until it's complete.
Coming back to present. I applied for 3 foundation courses and 2 normal 3-year BA's. So far I have been accepted to BOTH normal courses (one conditional and the other unconditional). I got a rejection from Goldsmiths today which I found out via UCAS. I don't really understand how I can get rejected from a LOWER course?I had previously emailed Goldmiths as I didn't believe my CertHE would be enough to go straight into their 3-year course, and was told that they wouldn't even look further at my application if I applied with my CertHE. But they also said I was a valid candidate for the foundation course.
Sorry for the rant.. Goldsmiths was my first choice and I just feel deflated with this news. I wish they had sent me an email with the rejection, the UCAS update just felt really harsh.
Half of the top 10 aren't even RG...
