Trying to be more of a glass half full kind of guy but I can't help but feel a little despondent that my top university turned me down. It wasn't so much their decision but the reason for their decision that has upset me.

I was told I had a very strong application and I had almost all of the entry requirements asked of me except my GCSE maths which was C instead of B. I was hoping so much that I stood a chance but they rejected me outright without question.

It was only thanks to my secondary school (which I may add destroyed my childhood repeatedly), that continuously undermined me throughout by predicting the lowest of low grades that this has happened. I ended up far exceeding what they predicted me but they still have the last laugh it seems. They pushed me onto a foundation paper for maths because they were so scared I'd fail and make them look bad so I passed an easy test (great for them) but I could only ever get a C.  I never anticipated it would hold me back and therefore have gone onto a course without taking maths into consideration. 

I so badly want to reach my dream of becoming a good clinical psychologist no matter what. Maybe I need to stop taking setbacks to heart but this is a bit of a blow :(. 

To top it all off  its raining like crazy here and such severe gales too hope we don't end up without power over Christmas :(.


Ah well tomorrow is another day as they say :)

I do indeed I'm hoping it will help me understand myself a little more as well as help others.

I do have backups so I can breathe a sigh of relief. Just worried that its the start of the door slamming. I do tend to be a worrier though ><

Is there another university that you can apply to?  My grades weren't great, but I was accepted into both that I applied to.
