Winter is coming and I wish it could pass sooooooon.
I don't want to complain about it any more and it is truly annoying that I have to explain this to my friends when they ask what happened.
First, I have to admit that it is my fault that I didn't achieve band 6 for each item in the IELTS exams. That means I would miss the entrance of my school in the end of July. At the same time, Chad's student visa was under process due to the low efficiency of immigration officer. I was not so sure that it would be approved but he insisted that he would pass it. As a result, he convinced me to apply for the WHV since I was definitely qualified for its rules and then I could take the IELTS exams and support myself via legal part-time job in NZ. How attractive it was! It turned out to be a torture in the following two months which both us could not imagine.
As so many people would apply for it on the website and the competition is fiercely each year, the condition of Internet would be worst at the application time. It's not possible to read all the rules at that time. Chad searched online for tips regarding application and followed them to fill other countries' form using my information as practice. He was lucky to pick up Thailand at the first time since after clicking the submit button he could delete it until he paid for the application fee. So it mislead him that his practice on other countries was OK and didn't have any negative effect. At one day before the application, he filled the forms via using Finland's form to auto-fill all the information so that he wouldn't type all the words later on. However, some developed countries like Finland, Japan and America etc. don't need the application fee and if you submit your application, you will never delete it ever. Chad was worried and made a international call to the NZ immigration office. He was told that it would not affect my application to Chinese WHV. It seems that the website updated with conspicuous fonts to warn everyone not to use other countries' form to practice not long before the Chinese WHV was opened for applicants. Chad was in charge of my application and I didn't pay much attention to the details.
After I got the quota and waited for two weeks, I didn't feel well about it. Someone shared a case on Douban WHV group that a Chinese guy's Finland application was approved and he got a reject on his real application. I added a QQ group and found a lot of guys who had the similar experience. We witnessed a lot together in the endless two months. Although it is not allowed to use any code scripts to get the quota and if you are not a legal adviser, you cannot charge for money and agent for other's application. Unfortunately it has happened in China. The agencies abused each other and made fake information to get new clients. Someone argued rudely with the people who got the quota but gave up it anyway. So many people want to be an intending immigrant and count on WHV to get a work visa. What's worse, someone increase the immigration officers workload via complaining phone calls and emails of selfish disposition. And I don't think it is suitable for people to laugh at others' dreams after being approved of WHV. Part of Chinese people tend to get pretty angry and impolite online. After rejected by the immigration officer, some applicants put their experience online and got much abuse. I feel so awful about all of this. For my perspective, it is a careless mistake but someone attacked people like me by commenting brainless, stupid, and dishonest etc.
I want to apologise for my inappropriate intension of WHV. I mean I wanted to pass my IELTS exam. The refusal has definitely unknown, horrible and negative influence on me. I suppose it is my punishment. I have to try hard to reduce it. I wrote this in English because I don't want to disturbed by vicious Chinese cyber citizens. That's all. My apology again.
I've learned something these days which I've tried to remember in my mind.
1.Don't judge people. It is important to reverse my own idea and prejudice about others. As a matter of fact, it's easy to hurt or humiliate people even it's not in purpose.
2.As the saying goes, 'First they ignore me, then they ridicule me, then they attack me, then I win.'. There's no need to care about all the rumors and slanders, because they are the true losers comparing with me.
3.I still have a long way on learning English and pass my exam. It's very meaningful.
