Should have done PPE, then.

Judging by your actions on GM, philosophy, or the argument against it, would be right up your street.

Broadcast Media, hopefully sport, since it's a big interest for me, and I'd enjoy working on something that interests me.

I live at home, simply to save money for the future, in fact the majority of people on my course live at home. Yeah the temptation to drink is very high, especially with cheap booze prices at the SU Bar.

Perhaps

I never wanted to go to Uni in the first place. I decided in the last week of September to go through clearing. Was one of the biggest mistakes I've made thus far.

Still, live and learn and all that.

So if you went through clearing, you must have missed out on your previous offer's requirements? Or did you never apply in the first place?

Super competitive environment is the sporting media world...best of luck, hope it goes well.

Never understood the point of living at home. You miss out on the whole Uni experience by not being on campus. Then again if you save money and don't feel like you're missing out then fair enough.

Didn't apply in the first place. Had absolutely no intention of going and spent the summer looking for a job. Couldn't get an interview yet alone a job offer so I decided (wrongly) that the next best thing to do was go to Uni.

Can't even remember my A levels, think I got a B and 2 C's ? Pretty sure had I applied I would have lost out as my grades were rubbish, but luckily entry requirements are dropped when applying through clearing.

I guess times are changing considering the amount of people remaining at home. I wouldn't of minded staying in halls but I think it would have taken me quite a while to settle in considering some of the difficulties I have. Then again, I don't think I miss out too much because there's always an option of staying at a mates house who's on campus etc.

Well, I think the one thing that everyone should always bear in mind is to not sit on the fence. Make a decision, and commit to it. I would say most of the time a change if heart is counter-productive, but not always.

I don't know how long ago you did your A Levels, definitely in the non-A* era, but those grades wouldn't be good enough to go and do something worthwhile these days. It's got increasingly competitive, despite the scummy government raising the fees to £9000.

I have about 10 teams. As long as they're not all from the same league, I don't think it's a problem.

Sure, but when you're 18, sitting on your backside with seemingly no prospect of getting a job and you know Uni is a real option it's hard to ignore even if you know it's not the right decision.

I did my A levels 5 years ago. Whilst my grades are crap, A levels are a joke. I was sitting with clowns doing Media Studies, Sociology and Psychology bragging about their 2 A's and a B as if they were worth the same as someone taking Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. It's not as if A levels are hard either is it? They are worthless.

I wasn't overly bothered about the tuition fee rise. The only effect that it will have is stopping those that are half-hearted about the prospect of Uni from going (me for example) and stopping others from doing Mickey Mouse courses and using Uni as an excuse to have a piss-up for 3 years.

Those that are serious about going can get their courses paid for and only have to pay it back in incredible small chunks once they are earning a decent wage.
