    My uni interviews are coming up and I'm scared to bits.

    When I went to the open days and videos and from people I know at unis not a single one of them was fat and short like me.


    Clearly, they interviewers somewhat prefer students who are not fat and short?

    Honestly this should make no difference. You're there for your mind, not your body (unless you're applying for some sport-related courses).

    The interviewers don't care unless it's a sport-related course. They want the best students that will get good results, contribute to the uni and get something out of the course, not the fittest students.

    If you're insecure about your weight, go ahead and try to lose some (preferably speak to a doctor or someone qualified - weight loss can be dangerous if done wrong). It may improve your life or make you feel better, but that's separate from your uni interviews.
