I'm stressing about getting into Uni.

Damn me and my 17 year old self that thought HSC... who cares! I am glad in a sense that I was not in the right head space to do well in the HSC and do well at uni. I like so many 17 year olds also had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.

So now here I am, applied to get in and they are asking for proof of English proficiency. After panicking and a few phone calls I have now found out that year 10 will be good enough, especially since I had a reasonable mark.

Now I have to:
  • Finish up chasing a reference from my old work
  • Find or get a new copy of my School Certificate transcript
  • Sit the STAT test this Saturday

Oh, MumfromOz - I wish you could tell that to my 17year old DD - has the capability - but more interested in having fun, its all I can do to keep her at school, she would happily leave and work at Woolworths!!!

I have 12months to go!!!!

But once you have a goal, it makes all the difference, I am sure things will work out for you!

Thanks guys. I feel as prepared as I can be. It's not really a test you can study for anyway.

Thanks so much! I sat the test now I just have to see the results. Two to three weeks to wait. I have no idea how I went. I am sure I didn't do them all wrong nut I'm not sure which ones I got right either. Only time will tell.

Phew I have had 3 incredibly busy weeks at work. Today feels like the first time I've been able to stop and take a breath!
