Student Applies To Hogwarts University, Gets Rejection Letter From UCAS

Rejection letters suck. Big time. But as far as rejection letters from UCAS go, this one is pretty outstanding.

"Dear Applicant," the letter reads. "We regret to inform you that your application to the stated establishment cannot be processed at this time due to the fact that it does not exist.

"After consultation with our mythical advisors we have also determined that even if it did exist, the course "wandology" would be highly in demand and hence require at least two As and a B in any of the following subjects:

Advanced Spellcrafting


Defence Against The Dark Arts

History of the Occult

Shaft Design

"Your hand written grade sheet claiming top marks in 'waving a stick about,' 'wearing a pointy hat' and 'watching Paul Daniels TV specials' sadly is not suitable for submission, however by applying through clearing you may be suitable of Liberal Arts courses. Alternatively you may wish to resubmit next year by tying your letter to an owl and hoping for the best.'

Unfortunately, shortly after discovering this wonderful letter, we were distraught to find out it was a fake.

HOWEVER! Every cloud has a silver lining, etc etc, and the chief executive of UCAS tweeted her approval.
