    So, i'm in sixth form and have recently applied to a programme for university that goes over a period of time. I wont say the name but i feel terrible and nearly cried. I was revising for a class test when i suddenly got an email . I saw unfortunately and my heart dropped.
    I work so hard on my application and told people about it as they asked. My mums eagerly waiting . I dont know what to say. I feel like a failure and cant even revise now. I keep thinking about how i wont enter uni as i wanted to go to that uni . i met all the criteria and have good grades. Im very confused and feel bad about this rejection.

    i may sound silly and whiny but i really cared about this . Ill be fine but just feel sad :/.

    End rant.

    I actually got rejected from all 5 of my choices, which was a metaphorical kick in the *******s , but I did some more research and applied through extra. I’m doing a masters now !

    It is disappointing and you are allowed to feel a little disheartened but don’t let this one hurdle stop you from reaching your goals .

    You shouldn’t let it stop you doing the best in your exams and coursework, there’s will a chance to reach your overall targets

    Good luck

    If it was a summer school or something similar, I applied to two and was rejected by both, probably because they're more so aimed at students whose parents haven't gone to university or are from a poor/disadvantaged background.

    Hey

    I'm in the same situation and i recently applied for K+ but then I was rejected from this programme. I know how it feels. But I realised that their are so many other outreach programmes. For all ages and any years. So don't stress over one, and make sure to apply to as many as you can.

    You do realise that most people don't do these, but still get into uni right..?

    possibly but the course i want to apply for and the work experiences is hard to find so this would've been very useful.

    Everyone gets rejected and while it is disappointing at first you shouldn't let it get you down. You might find a better programme in the future that you might get accepted for. Just keep on working hard and studying to get good A-Levels.

    if you had to send in your personal statement for this, a good idea would be to phone the institution and ask them what went wrong with your application. they might be able to give you personal statement pointers that might have let you down and that you can now build on.

    you can always go through clearing and adjustment when you get your results (or if it comes to the worst then take a gap year) if it doesn't work out

    hope it goes well for you xxx

    As you go through life, you will suffer failures from time to time. Majority of people do. You just got to pick yourself back up and understand why you was unsuccessful and how you can improve.
