冰球突破官网商学院毕业生, 莫莉埃文斯, explains how she chose to go through 清算 after realising that her first-choice university wasn’t right for her after all.
For many it’s a dream to wake up on results day to find that they have achieved the grades they need to get in to their first-choice university. 但对于莫莉·埃文斯来说, it was only when she got the grades she needed 和 moving away from home became a reality, that she realised it was not what she wanted after all. 她是这样做的:
“当我在结果日醒来时, I just knew that the options I had been looking at weren’t right for me,”莫莉说. “离家越近，我就意识到这一点, 在我的环境中感到快乐, 和 being somewhere where I felt safe were the biggest things to me.”
“When I realised I’d got into a university I didn’t want to go to, I started to panic,”她补充说. “我告诉我妈妈我不去上大学了。, I started looking at apprenticeships - which I didn’t even want to do. I was a bit lost 和 didn’t really know which way to turn.”
Part of Molly’s panic was linked to the fact that she had not been told what her options were ahead of results day.
“At college they drill it in to you that you’re going to university, 你要走传统的UCAS路线,”她说. “I didn’t realise 清算 was an option, it wasn’t something that was promoted to me in college.”
When Molly told her college that she had changed her mind, they were able to provide reassurance 和 explain that she did have options, 而林间空地是一条可能的路径.
“我的父母一直想让我上大学, so I was a bit nervous about telling them that I didn’t want to go,莫莉说:, “但一旦我发现了‘清道夫’的事, I was able to reassure them that there was a different option for me, 他们非常支持我.”
Molly’s thoughts then turned to the 冰球突破官网, as a possible option that would allow her to fulfil her dream of going to university, 同时让她离家更近一点.
“Worcester were great when I phoned up in the morning,”她说. “不到一个小时，一切都解决了. The lecturers were very supportive 和 reassured me that I had a place. 这真的很有帮助，让我冷静下来. 我不再寻找其他路线. I just didn’t realise that 清算 was that straight forward.”
莫莉通过清算申请学习 工商管理(荣誉)学士 at Worcester 和 was successful in securing a place, before deciding to transfer to 广告，市场营销和公共关系在那里，她度过了美好的三年.
“One of the main things I loved about university was meeting different people from all walks of life,”她说. ”“我喜欢社交元素. There are loads of different clubs 和 societies you can join where you can meet different people.”
“The lecturers are really friendly too, 和 they all want the best for you,” Molly added. “That’s something that really stood out for me at Worcester. Even now that I’ve graduated, if I email a lecturer with a question, they’re always happy to help.”
当了三年愉快的学生之后, Molly has gone on to secure a job at the 冰球突破官网, working as an 事件 Coordinator with the Communications team. She has achieved a great deal since those turbulent few hours, one results day, several years ago.
“Looking back, I’m really glad I went through 清算,”她说. “It gave me that alternative option that stopped me from panicking, that stopped me from going to a university that didn’t suit me.”
“My advice to other people would be you’ve just got to stay calm, 不要惊慌, 想想什么对你来说是正确的,”她补充说. “This process is here for a reason, 和 everybody wants the best for you.”
