It's official. When I checked UCAS this afternoon to view the status of my university application, it had recently changed to state that my place at Nottingham Trent University has now been confirmed. The diploma and qualification certificate I earned as a result of Access is at my grandparents' house, which I will make arrangements to pick up next week.
Wow...I've made it into university. Granted, I'm not yet enrolled with NTU but I have the qualification and place confirmed! My move-in day is a little over a month away.
