Its not fair to pass judgement on someone without knowing the facts, naive approach.

I know its not easy, give it a try.I do appreciate sense of humour of people like Escape Artist and a few times even KT's.However trashing a newbie who is looking to get some advice/encouragement is not the best use of sarcasm.

I also think it is unfair to slash OP. You all know that the motivation for many being here & looking for advice is money. It is casino-like money, that is chips for gambling bought by the taxpayer money.You also know that people do not need to be much more larger than your neighbour working at the local postal office, simply needing to show some sort of geekish skills and fit into a given environment. Some have none, some one, some both. Both can be built up in a time... may it be even a lifetime.

It shows determination, but as others have said with varying degrees of politeness, the first question will be about whether this reflects your ability.I don't know the rules at Melbourne, but at most unis you can retake failed years...
