In 2016, I had to go through the process of UCAS. I had to apply to several different Universities and hope that one of them would invite me to an interview.
In 2017, all but 1 sent for me (the other 1, no longer ran the course I had PAID to apply for).
My top choice asked me to go for an interview. How exciting!
Except it wasn’t. My cat had just passed away and the world felt incredibly numb. All my coursemates were applying and interviewing and giddy. I just wanted it all to be over with. I would never be accepted anyways, I would just go and do it, just to say that I had.
So off I went…
The interview included: a one to one interview, a group interview/discussion and a written piece of work.
I was never once nervous, I did not fret. I said what I thought and was honest with my educational background. I wrote what I thought and did so with an academic flare.
Today is one year since the interview.
I am now a student at that University.
Sometimes, those days where you really do not want to, are the days where you absolutely should.
