    So, I just got rejected from University despite of doing reasonably well on my exams except one (Maths) which I admit I had a great difficulty with and probably did not spend enough time as I should have done and I think it brought my profile down so hard. I also have impression that the admission didn't really bother reading my personal statement.I wish they were focused more on ones strengths and achievements rather than the blemish(es) around it. I just feel utterly stupid, insignificant, discouraged and don't want to continue my education anymore.What's worse is that I couldn't tell my family about it with a straight face, every time we talk about university matters, I get quite uncomfortable. Retake is no longer an option for me, I am taking too long to do a proper degree already, my peers are about to graduate in less than a year and here I am struggling to get into a degree programme that I am satisfied with. I feel like I am giving a bad representation of our family. My dad is known for being smart and clever man, people look up to him and trust him so much and I feel like the very opposite of him, I don't want to let my family down. I just want to be the son that they could be proud of yet I feel like I failed to do just that.

    Apprenticeship? I thought you had years to find one of those. You'd be laughing all the way to the bank once you complete an apprenticeship and go straight into full time work compared to most graduates who struggle to hold one job down

    Don't compare yourself to other people.

    You are a unique individual in your own way.

    Its better not to rush and work things out properly.

    Who cares if other have finished uni, they could be jobless in the next six months.
