(with sincerest apologies for the language)

I'm not allowed to graduate.

I did 9 first year courses, instead of 8. :O Shoot me.

They fucking well TOLD me to do that 9th course so that I could continue doing politics and get it as a major. I don't give a fuck if it's in the fucking handbook that I'm not allowed to do 9 first year courses. YOU LET ME DO IT, YOU BASTARDS!!! A "well, you can do this 9th course, but you'll regret it later" would have been nice.

I'm not going back. I'm not doing another semester. Even one course. No. Not doing it. This was my last semester. It's what's been keeping me going. Fuck it. I'm not going back, ever. I'm just not doing it.

I can't stop crying. It isn't fair. Nobody told me, nobody warned me.

And you know what? There isn't even an appeals procedure! "It's a rule. It's in the handbook." So? It isn't fair. I didn't do anything wrong. They told me I was allowed to do it. How is it fair that they can make a rule like that, and not even allow you to appeal when it screws you over?

Tomorrow, I have to see the assistant Dean of Arts to discuss my "options". What options are there? Do more uni, or don't. And I won't.

What is with all the exclamation marks everywhere? "Speak! Proceeding Entry! Successive Entry! Still Relevant! Less Relevant! Like-Minded Persons! Biographical Lies! Nostalgia!"

My head hurts.....

and you know what i think about this. landmines. landmines EVERYWHERE

failing that, we'll set the chickens on them.

Leave my exclamation marks alone.

Oh no :(
That is so unfair!

Can you go and see the Education Officers at your campus student union? - they might be able to help. Even though I know you were told there's no appeal process, they might at least be able to advise you, as surely other students have been in that position before.

*hugs* I hate uni administration. And that is one of the most unfair things I've ever heard - why on earth are you being penalised for doing more, rather than less subjects than you should have? That is so unfair :(

I'm waiting on a call from my SA.

I'm afraid I didn't explain it right. Because I did one extra first year course (at the beginning of my second year), I have done one LESS later year course than required.

Although, I've never noticed any difference in difficulty, so it's a stupid rule.

Yes, i see what you mean about the difficulty difference. Hopefully the SA has some useful advice. And like blindmouse said, hopefully there might be a summer subject you could do, so at least you could get the remaining subject out of the way. But it's still very unfair!! Good luck with sorting it out.

Damn, that really sucks :( Forgive my inarticulateness, but... really sucks.

But you don't have to be purely a student again. You can get a job and just do one unit, yeah? Or do a unit over Summer Semester?
Nov. 1st, 2006 04:03 am (UTC)

That is the suckiest of sucky suckly things!

*hugs again*

Hopefully as the good Blindmouse says, you can just cram in a unit over a summer or take it externally.

*hands over plentiful supply of landmines*

Oh, my poor evil twin! You must fall upon the student union and ask them to advise you... as soon as they can be bothered returning your call. There must be some way around this.

*gapes in complete shock*

*is gobsmacked*

They're penalising you for doing TOO MANY COURSES?!


That's ridiculous.
I hope you can sort it out with the Dean tomorrow. If there's no warning and nothing stopping you from taking a 9th subject, I'm sure you're not the first one to have this happen.

Nov. 1st, 2006 06:41 am (UTC)
Argh! That's ridiculous! How stupid and thoughtless can uni administration get.
Nov. 1st, 2006 06:50 am (UTC)
That's so stupid! They never even told you, they can't penalise you for that!! They told you to do it, it's not your problem or fault no one thought about happening to mention the other problem!
