    I go to Brunel uni and I really don't like it there, I don't like the course the people or the atmosphere,. I really wanted to apply for Surrey uni but my teacher don't let me because I was predicted BBC, which I think was unfair as those were my AS results and people with DDD were predicted AAB. I really wanted to go to surrey uni, my friend goes there and she loves it. I don't know what to do because I can't retake because I've already retaken the year. Its come to the point where I come home and cry. I really feel like my sixth form and my teachers have ruined my life, and I hate them.
    Can someone please help me?

    Obviously I filled in my UCAS because I wanted to go to university this year, besides in my sixth form teachers were pushing students to apply for uni, even those who didn't want to go or take a gap year, and Brunel was my highest offer, my other universities had the same entry requirements so obviously I hatd to make it my firm. Also my teachers forced me to apply to universities I don't want to go to and didn't give me a chance and gave everyone else a chance, obviously its to do with my teachers.
    You have got to stop blaming teachers. How does blaming them solve anything anyway? They may have offered strong advise but short of pointing a gun at your head, they didn't make you do anything.

    So move on. The question, is what are you going to do about your current situation? To me you have two options. You can make the best of things with a good attitude or you can drop out. But I would strongly advise that if you drop out, you need to put in place a plan B e.g. job, alternative course etc etc.

    But stop blaming others for where you are in life. Your life is accountable only to you unless you have a gun pointed at your head.

    First off I don't know how the hell you're ucas was hijakced in the manner you're making out to be. Secondly, it's all free will of choice and you have to start taking some responsibility! Blaming everyone else and being all fired up about it gets you no where. Trust me, life is unfair, people cheat, people lie and stab each other in the back to get their own way. It's a cruel world out here and this is a perfect wake up call for you! All the what if's don't matter anymore. Ok. Think of now! Try to make the better of the current situation, if it really does suck at Brunel and you just cannot stand it then make the arrangements to drop out and go to Surrey next year. Work in the meantime and get some experience and money behind you and go back to uni with full motivations and most importantly a way forward!

    Dude - sh1t happens in life that is unfair. But how is blaming someone else for the position you are in going to make your life better? What good is it going to achieve? Answer - nothing. So why waste your energy on it?

    If it is any consolation - I was sacked from a job by a boss who made a personal decision to get rid of me. It destroyed me. I lost my confidence and it took me a good 6 months to come around. But I never blamed him for my predicament. I picked myself up, enrolled on a course at uni and am now embarking on a new career (ironically as a teacher).

    In hindsight he did me a favour. I am now enjoying my new career much more than my old one. And karma has played its part as he was sacked from the same business last month.

    In life, there is absolutely no point in looking back and wondering what might have happened or what if. It is pointless. It won't happen so don't fret about it. Look forward. What are you going to do today that will make your life a little better?

    I will leave you with these very very wise words!

    No one is defending your teacher here. People are just saying you could of either

    1. stood your ground, you were 17/18 not 12
    2. took a gap year (plenty of people do this)
    3. gone into other accommodation such as private halls, student houses etc (saying that surrey had no accommodation is a load of rubbish, maybe they didnt have any uni owned student halls left, there are other options)

    to get into surrey

    The issue here is is that you're not accepting that there were perfectly reasonable ways around your teacher being rubbish.

    You should of stood your ground by applying to surrey anyway.

    'I'm not doing a shared house with people I dont know' - people do house shares with people they dont know all the time, hell you do halls with people you dont know. So you CHOSE not to go to surrey then as you didnt want a house share not because there wasnt any accommodation left.

    You had already re took the year? So what? You'd of been 20 when you went to uni instead of 19, its not a big deal and then you would of ended up at a uni you think you would of loved instead.

    Just accept the reason that you're not at surrey is because you chose not to go in the end (gap year, house share were both possible means of going) and live with the decisions you made. Try and make the best out of what situation you are in now at brunel, feeling sorry for yourself wont help you.

    Or try for a uni transfer, you will need get it sorted before the ucas deadline though

    What grades did you get? If you got the asking grades, you could email admissions there and ask them if you could transfer. I know someone who did that so its worth a try.
