Christina shares her perspective in an in-depth interview on our Clearing podcast on Spotify.
The nature of that phone call on A level results day can really colour your impression about whether something feels right and it definitely felt like Plymouth cared the most – the person on the other end of the line was so lovely and I felt completely at ease.
I was working a full-time job, happily earning a salary, when changes in the company left my position uncertain. This turn of events was the motivation I needed to go to university to pursue something I enjoy and seize control of my career. I wanted to follow my dreams.
After getting to grips with not getting the grades I aspired to achieve, I decided to change my career path. I have always loved the ocean and found it fascinating. I decided it was fate telling me to go study something that I would actually enjoy.
I thought it was bad to be going through Clearing and I would be judged going through the process. Once I started looking through the openings available, and saw how many there were, I started to relax.
Everything was very clear, very thorough...every avenue was open and the help was there when I needed it.
