    Hi,
    I know this sounds silly to ask but how do you deal with your application being declined? I am heartbroken. I have received conditionals from two other unis but this one was my dream and I don't know how to cope. if anyone has been through a similar ordeal then please give my some advice! Thanks so much in advance

    You really just have to pick yourself up and move on. Focus on the fact that you have two other offers and that you are about to spend the next 3 years studying something you really enjoy. Also focus on your exams so you can meet your offers. You can always apply again next cycle and take a gap year if you really want to go to your dream uni.

    Check if your dream uni offers a foundation/transition year for your course.
