Don't fail yourself before you start ! There's no reason to expec not to be able to cope with such a course. Sounds like the first time round, with the UWC, you had many factors going against you, and many reasons for anxiety whih probably undermined your performance at that time.
I know, from personal experience what it is like to be poor and to go through university lacking the funding more privileged kids had. But money only sems to solve all problems when you don't have it, and are well acquainted with them problems of not having enough money. I have over the years seen so many people be miserable and fail, despite oodles of money.
Check whether Unisa has ( it should ) a student counselling service, that might be able to provide some psych testing and vocational counselling, to help match your interests and skills, to be sure you select a course you will be more likely to enjoy, and which leads to a field of work you would also enjoy.
One thing I'm sure of, is that you are NOT doomed to failure and ARE capable of suceeding, if you work towards goals that suit you.
