Sadly, I'm no longer a student of Cambridge. The course was far too difficult for me, and I was very unprepared for the workload I received. I spent a lot of time attempting to study the material and understand things, but I couldn't cope with it and had many problems during the length of the year, both academically and health-wise. The exams I sat were not nice, I knew I was in big trouble after the first one.
So over the summer, I've managed to successfully apply for a place at Birmingham. Same course (Computer Science), but a lot closer to home. (Only an hour's train ride compared to three!) And I live in a lovely area that's close to the Chinese quarter, yummy food and snacks, haha! I'm a bit worried because I live in accommodation that's meant for Birmingham City students... Not that there's anything wrong with BCU students, but the fact is that I live a little bit further than most freshers of my uni. It's hard for a person like me to get out there and socialise... >w<
I was lucky to be able to secure a place so late in the year. Well, I'm determined to have a successful uni year for the first time, and I don't want to ruin this opportunity I have.
