I applied to college to do a Access course as long term want a degree but have been unable to study as such since 2001 when I dropped out of college with 3 months to go due to my health.

I had a interview on tuesday (21st aug) for the Access course, I got there to be forced a sheet of paper in my hand and snapped at to 'write a page and tell me why you should be on the course? and what can you bring to the course?' which I got a bit narked over as on my aplication form (which I did online) I explained that due to my phsyical health I find it hard to grasp a pen and to do any form of hand writen work, including a lot of the time signing my own signature. I touch type when Itype so typing isn't as painful it is still sore but not as much as if I am made to write.

The woman got iritated by me and snapped back.

So I got home and was convinced that I had messed it up due to standing my ground and not giving in to her stupid demands, after lettting her know she had broken the disability discrimination act.

Then yesterday I got a phone call from the college asking if I could go down and talk to them, so reluctantly agreed.

Good job that I did.

as

wait for it

They have decided I would be wasting my time if I did the Access course

BUT

A university which shall remain nameless offers a course which is only going to be in it's 2nd year next month

which is more or less 1/2 mental health and 1/2 learning disability (there words not mine)

it is a DEGREE COURSE

and the college hopes I don't mind but they have put my name down to start it

so

yeah

after being convinced I had screwed up I hadn't

so

I AM GOING TO UNIVERSITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND IN SHOCK!!!!!!
