So I feel like a bit of an idiot made a bit of a mistake with my application to college by not reading the website properly. Tend to skim read a lot it’s a bit of a bad habit. Basically I read the college website Access to higher education page wrong, and missed the bit on it where it says you choose 4 modules out of the choices of subjects and complete access modules in each of the 4 subjects. Whereas I thought it was just you chose one subject and studied that for a year. When actually you study four subjects for a year.
Feel like a right idiot, as on my application as when I applied I just thought you studied one, I put I wanted to do psychology, and wrote about why I want to do psychology. So it will be rather awkward at my interview having to explain myself and why I missed that important piece of information. I don’t quite understand how I could have possibly missed it when it says it in two different places on the website.
Now I’m scared they are going to think I’m a right idiot from my application, but that being said I have been offered an interview so I guess that’s a plus point. My excuse is going to be that I was looking at a lot of different colleges that had different courses and I forgot the one I was applying to was one with four different subject modules. Or that I did this it was just one before I sent off the application and then realised afterwards that it was subject modules but it was too late as I had already sent off the application. So maybe it will be okay and all work out.
I feel like such an idiot for overlooking that important detail, but I’m glad I have realised now before the interview so that I didn’t turn up at the interview thinking it was one subject then looking like more of an idiot at the interview. At least now I can plan ahead and be prepared for any questions about my mistake that may come up.
So now I have to think about which 4 subjects I want to do I’m thinking Psychology, Sociology, Biology and Law as they all kind of go together and are the best options for what I want to do at university which is psychology. And I’m now a little worried about how I’m going to cope with studying four subjects. But I still want to do this so hopefully it will be okay.
