    Firstly , I'd like to point out I'm not in any way undecided about uni or going to a certain course. I know fully that university is for me and that the course I've picked is fine.

    I struggle from very bad anxiety where I find it hard to do daily things. I never used to be like this however suddenly took place over my time at sixth form due a very difficult and hard situation. I applied to UCAS 1st time in college and had a failed start as all my worries had built up til my first week. I thought I was under control of them till I got there and realised I wasn't. I took a gap year and reapplied to UCAS to find a course more suitable to my skills. Having done that I aimed at getting better mentally this year. Unfortunately I thought I was in a good place and ready to go to my new uni choice in September. Sadly I wasn't and the same problems occurred before i got there so i defferred entrg- the worry was far too great to bare or focus at all. Thankfully my uni understood perfectly.

    Now I'm looking at getting mentally sorted for good now. I've been on new treatment and finally feel a sense of getting somewhere. I feel happier than last year and more able to do things. A sense of feeling back on track. I feel that choosing a uni close to home would make sense and ease the transition and likelyhood of me panicing and I'm contemplating applying to UCAS for the 3rd time to find a similar course closer to home (which there is).

    I'm worried about coming across as a faff or silly to apply to ucas 3 times and wondered if anyone out there has been in a similar situation and could offer any advice please?

    Again; I must say I have looked at my other options of apprenticeships and they just don't appeal to me at all. The prospect of uni is amazing and I can't wait- I couldn't wait to start this year over summer. The only issue is my mental state and it's only ever been that and it's been preventing me from getting anywhere.

    Thank you xx

    Just to be clear, your concern isn’t applying to university itself, it’s applying to UCAS to then apply to universities? The universities themselves won’t know how many times you’ve applied.

    It’s what UCAS is there to do, help you with getting to Uni. Don’t worry about whether or not it looks silly, it doesn’t. x

    The only way a uni will know if you have applied before is if it is a same uni as on your previous applications. But if you select a new uni this year, then for all they know it is your first application

    Yeah basically I was just worried if this was okay to apply 3 times? especially regarding how to confronting my referee and college regarding reapplying for the third time.

    It's OK, Unis can't see, but your referee won't have that recent results to go off though
