    Nah, it takes quite a bit of planning. Learning video production and personal branding etc.

    [QUOTE=an_atheist;70834010]Yep. At the sixth from I go to, if we look at purely GCSE performance I'm in the lower half of the year afaik. Yet I'm one of the offer holders, over several who are probably better qualified for Cambridge than I am. Obviously the admissions team saw something they liked, but what that is I couldnt possibly say.
    I assume you feel like you shouldnt have gotten an offer, why?

    Sorry for the incredibly late reply - I don't use TSR much at all! I feel I shouldn't have got an offer because I am essentially very good at convincing people I know what I'm on about when I really don't. Academically I'm not too strong, by AS grades weren't great and although I can do well in my subjects (foreign languages) that's simply because I'm good at avoiding the things I can't do and ticking the boxes for examiners and teachers.

    I'm really worried that I'll get the grades and meet my offer, but will then turn up and be one of if not the worst student, and will either scrape my way through whilst under immense stress or drop out. Of course I'd be very happy to get in, but I'm sure that with that happiness will be intense feelings of inadequacy and worry.

    LOL I'm exactly the same way. I almost feel like my (somewhat natural) ability to remain calm during stressful situations allowed me to make some pretty good points and respond well. Combined with the fact that I kinda "predicted" the type of questions they were going to ask me beforehand, it feels like my interview carried me to a place.

    Obviously, I don't know how good the competition was, nor my score in the admissions assessment - I guess everyone feels like they "cheated" a place some way or another.

    I wouldn't worry about it. I reckon the ratio of the number of people who think they'll be "one of the worst" to the number of people who turn out to be "one of the worst" is small.

    read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impostor_syndrome - this states "Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be."

    That's true! I guess if you want to vlog you have to do it the right way. :lol: What video editing software are you using?
