Enjoy it!!!

Hello everyone! Hope your results worked out the way you wanted... unlocking doors to new opportunities. I just thought I should give you some general advice regardless if you have secured a place for uni this year or not.

If you have made the decision to study at University and that you have secured your place for this year for example, I would say to enjoy every minute of it - course etc. Universities have their very own students union who primarily help students and I would also strongly recommend looking at what they have to offer. University is just not about successfully achieving a degree! It forms a foundation for you to build upon which then leads to employment. There are ways to ensure you stand out from the crowd and one way to do it is by joining in non curriculum activities. Yes it will build up your confidence and will also enhance your student life experience too.

If you have not secured your place for University this year, please don't worry! You definitely should maintain your focus and whichever route you take it will involve determination and hard work. As I have mentioned before in my previous blog entries... there is Clearing available. However, it is getting to the point whereby it is very difficult to say whether it is enough to get in to the course you want. No harm in trying though! Just for future reference, pick a course you will enjoy... you will get more than what you bargain for. Trust me!

If you have made the decision to not go to University then I would say for you to think ahead. Plan out something viable and please do not waste your time in doing so. Employment is the obvious answer but you need to be prepared! Look at apprenticeships and look into the possibility in enrolling to employment related qualification courses. That would help!

All I am say is that you have to make these all important decisions... no one else! You just need self belief that's all. I have seen in changes in me all thanks to the University and the job I am doing at the moment. I was in the same position as you too... I followed advice from all sorts of people and it worked out perfectly! I am just grateful!!!

Hope this helps. Thanks for reading as always!!!
