I know it’s weird isn’t it... I didn’t realise you had to select it as a different a level entirely on the ucas application 🤪
Probably because practically no one does it🙄

How has everyone done on your application?
I have almost finished the PS, and asked my Physics teacher for a reference. I have also completed the Personal Details and Education parts of the UCAS form.

I’ve completed all parts of the UCAS form and I did my first draft for my personal statement but my teacher never got back to me and I’m currently doing my second draft

I am applying for mech eng and talked about my further reading, relevant extra undergraduate level courses in HK universities and online, and the experience which I practiced teamwork through extracurricular activities.
By the way, being a reds fan should I reconsider Manchester uni?

If you’re planning on going to the games it would be a bit strange to support reds but go Manchester uni. But if you really like the uni then you should go as you’re going to uni to get a degree not be a fan

I only just decided what I want to apply to so I still need to get started on the PS. References at my school are done really automatically tho so I don’t need to think about that.

Introduce yourself
Hi I'm 2_V and I am 17 and live in the 0121

What are your hobbies/interests?
Reading, practising instruments badly, writing (and deleting), listening to music
What are you currently studying?
Business, Politics and Psychology (switched from Economics)
What grades do you hope to achieve?
Not aspiring for a specific grade, just gonna put in some effort and work with what I get, like GCSE. It means I don't stress at all and don't have a fixed university in mind. Good for the mental health.
If applicable, what universities/courses are you applying for?
Not sure yet, but definitely Brumston
Thinking about a gap year?
Nah, what's the point in that?
What are your goals for the future?
Don't really have any? Get a job and be financially secure. Maybe have a little me one day. I want a girl.
How are you feeling about this year?
Good. Haven't done much, no revision at least... just been doing my own thing... in a way this is my gap year.
Got a GYG (grow your grades) blog? Post a link

Nah, it's a lot of work, a blog. Plus I'm pretty sure focusing on a blog would make my grades shrink haha, not as good at multitasking as some others like ella.

I've done all of it but the disability section. One of my disabilities is so rare I can't just put the diagnoses

I’ve signed up for UCAS, and sent my personal statement to my teacher for feedback

Introduce yourself::hello:
Fish finger fan, not my real name but I do like fish fingers.

Hobbies/interests:
volunteering on my local heritage railway, tsr, youtube.

Studying:
Edexcel business
AQA geography
Edexcel history

What grades do I hope to achieve:
A,B,B or A,B,C

Thinking about gap year:
not really as not planning on going uni.

Goals for the future;
:dontknow: let's just get this out the way first.
Spoiler:
Show
if all else fails might just make some fans with fish fingers for blades and go into business selling them. :laugh: Chopinnocturne31



How are you feeling about this year:
Dreading it, nervous for exams, not liking the uncertainty of what's going to happen, and it's a bit scary to think this is our last year of compulsory school before going into the big world :eek: I think I should still be in pre-school.

Got a gyg:
Will update if I decide to do one for this year but at the moment don't plan on doing one.

Good luck to everyone this year, no matter what happens this year we will get through it, we've got this :dumbells:
