Hi Everyone, need some guidance on what I should pursue in life.
Finished year 12 last year and was planning on going to UNI but everything went wrong.
Initially, I was contacted by my UNI about 1 week before the exam and was allowed to enter via special entry since I had many skills in computing and had worked with a few clients like making websites, apps and graphic design.
Everything seemed smoothed and they sent me the enrollment papers. I also had a VTAC account which would become very problematic and was assured that it would be fixed. Because of the special entry, I asked them that I wouldn’t need an ATAR right? To which they confirmed yes.
This allowed me to fill out underscored papers and not have to attend the Exam. This was great as at the time as I had to take care of a few private stuff and it also allowed me to work on my project.
After one month of getting ghosted they say I have to go the VTAC way and said that they never got the enrollment form which makes me think that the person who was contacting me went on holiday or quit their job. Because I don’t have an ATAR I have to do a diploma to get to the bachelor course. Something I didn’t want to do.
Now I don’t know what to do. I can do a bachelor of software engineering at a different UNI like Swinburne through work experience or I can invest all my time into creating my Company. I’m in the process of developing enterprise software and have created a business plan and currently hold an ABN.
I also have a $600K investment for 25% of the company which I don’t know if I should accept. The investor is a close friend and I don’t want to lose all that money based on stupid decisions. The money will primarily be used for paying for 2 employees, software license keys and a bunch of insurance stuff like liability and worker compensation, etc.
So the question is should I to go to UNI or continue to work on my company. I’m 80% sure the company will make a profit, but I also want to meet new people and UNI opens up that opportunity.
