James checked his uni status on Ucas last night and he has not been offered a place. He is Gutted and so are we as he wanted it so badly. Hes going to try for another course there but cant do anything until Monday. He said they told them they were looking for interesting people not necessarily already qualified in music. Hes worked hard this year to get his grade 8s in Piano and Guitar paying for all his lessons and exams (they are NOT cheap) so is devastated this has not made a difference to his application and ontop of that hes feeling he must be "Dull and Crap". Just to add insult to injury every audition for music courses costs £60 and it cost roughly £250 to go to London from here with the flights, extra insurance for his guitar etc add this to the other 3 x £60 auditions he has had elsewhere its not been a cheap exercise. So we are all feeling flat here today.
Hope your day begins much better x
