    A girl in our year has applied to university for joint honours History and English. She was quite surprised to get a letter from Huddersfield inviting her to an interview for Fine Art, Painting and Drawing! It said to come along with her portfolio for a chat. She thought it must have been a mistake because she hasn't done Art since Year Nine, but it turns out she has actually applied to the Fine Art course by mistake!

    Ooops!

    Anyone else met any slightly bizarre mistakes?

    Well, I am sure Huddersfield is quite happy to get an applicant who has probably got good grades, judging by RachelBabyFrog's, even they are not in Art lol

    Contact the university and change the course from art to English & history.

    there was a muck up on her form though - all her other courses were fine! they also put her done for the wrong finance code. don't know if the writing was ambiguous or something but she had a copy she'd kept and was like "huh? there's nothing wrong with it!"

    so she did check.

    Huddersfield will pretty much let anyone in to do anything. They were probably just glad to have someone seriously think about going there.
