    That handboook it aload of sh*te.

    Firstly Hull is not a town, yet is seems to blissfully ignore this fact as it slates it.

    Also much of what is says about the place is factually inaccurate so quite how it came to this conclusion I am unsure.

    I would definately phone em up - it's possible that law and leeds being as big/popular as they are that a secretary thins through the UCAS forms before passing the ones that meet the basic criteria to the admissions tutor. That person might not have spotted that you were a mature applicant and just seen 2 A levels - not enough to get onto the course and put your form in the reject pile. If you phone them up and get the admissions tutor herself to look at your application it might be the first time she will see it.

    Where is that fact from?

    If you're looking at the over 90's then it's true - but I doubt that's the sort of lady you're looking for

    20-24 bracket is 53M:47F - so it's actually the other way round - sorry

    As a "non standard" student I had taken it upon myself to telephone the admissions staff at all the places that I am applying to in order to "test the water" and maybe "score some points" before I applied through U.C.A.S.

    I did this as many places do not really consider mature students and I wanted to test their attitude before wasting an application slot.

    Infact in one place where I physically called in to just to pick up a brochure (prospectus) the admissions tutor had some free time and even interviewed me and made me an offer on the spot. This was later confirmed through U.C.A.S. after I made my formal application.

    I was however slightly upset with another admissions department whom I telephoned. After explaining my plight they said that upon recieving my application they would most probably call me for an interview as they do with many "mature" students. I do however accept that this was not a guarantee.

    You can then imagine my sadness when I logged into U.C.A.S. to see that they just straight rejected me - not even the offer of an interview. I was gutted .

    So - is a rejection final or could I get on the phone and try and work some charm with them in an attempt to get an interview?

    Hi I am curently studying part-time A-Levels as a mature student as well (I am 24) and working full-time. Its hard going with so little time to study. How did you go about applying? Did you just send for a form and apply yourself?
