    I am applying for University this year, and I lied to my mum that I am appying to study Engineering and a Foreign language at SOAS, UCLAN, and Sheffield~ But the truth is that I am only.applying for just foreign languages! I am not interested in Engineering at all! So I said to my mum to put money into my bank to pay for the application and Submit my applications for the foriegn language. I hope to get accepted and when I do what should I say... She will wonder what I am studying. I know I can only hold it for some time, because when it comes to graduation she will find out😭😭. She is really against foreign language degrees. But I love languages with a passion~. When people ask me about Engineering I have nothing to say. My mum says that I will be studying Engineering at" University A" and going to work for company B. But I am not. She said she wont let me do a foreign language course at uni So i have to apply in Secret. The only people that know im not doing engineering is my Aunt, and my Engineering Btec Engineering teacher. WHAT SHOULD I DO!😭😭😭😢

    I'd always advise against lying. However, just stretch the truth.
    Your better and more passionate about Foreign Languages and they could see this through your reference(putting your sixth form in it) and your personal statement(okay take some responsibility) so thought it was best if you just did a language, so you did.
    Simple. You know whats best for you.
    Good Luck !

    We're dealing with a badass over here :lol:

    You should probably tell her before your lies catch up with you and then it's game over, my friend.

    My friend also said I will be sitting in the UNI with a guilty mind set knowing I lied to my mum, dreading graduation day because of it. So I will say what you said. Thank you ^^
