When I applied for uni we got a big envelope with a ton of papers to fill out. I accurately did what was written on the form in order to prevent something from messing it up. Check check double check, before running to the postal office before 5. After a week I got it back with the message that I forgot to put in a copy of my passport. Really weird cause I was pretty sure I put it in. I felt like I lost about 10 IQ points and decided to postpone everything that was going on (luckily laying on my couch didn’t have a high priority) and take care of this immediately. So yet another trip to the postal office it was.
Times change and 2 years ago the wonderful world of ‘SAP/SLM’ and ‘Studielink’ was introduced. Almost everything could be done online. No more hassling with forms (a relief for the chaotic messy types and the environmentalists). A lot of time saved because everything was to be found online. No more going from that place to the other. Everything could be accessed online. Hallelujah..
and *snap*…. welcome back to the real world.
Several students have indicated having problems with their admission. I can stampeed on and on about whose fault it is. Is it the system? the Student Service Center? The faculties? The executive board? However this doesn’t help you out with your problems. I think that a lot of the problems can be solved by helping each other. A lot of you have the information (or unfortunately the experience) with admission problems. So let us hear your thoughts
Are you facing problems? If so, what kind? Where do you think it goes wrong? Feel free to comment your thoughts on it.
