My friends are planning their UCAS applications. I am planning mine, but I know I won’t be going to university this September. In 6 years, my status here still hasn’t been sorted out. That means I can’t apply for a loan for the fees. There’s no way I could afford to pay the International fees! And I’m not allowed to work, so I can’t even earn the money.
Last year a lot of people from my school went to uni and some even finished uni then. I am still in the same place, just waiting. This makes me feel bad because life is like a race. I see other people going up and I am just going down.
All my classmates on my course will go to uni but only I know that I won’t be going. I wish I had my documents so I could study ICT and continue my education. I don’t want to feel like I am wasting my time waiting around for this. I wish I could work so I could pay my own way!
