    It's not something I think about too much as unfortunately a reasonable academic record is all I have going for me in this world; noob at guitar and no real business brain that I know of.
    this . I am also good looking but that really doesn't matter much I've found. I have a good business brain though... and I am extremely hard working if the situation demands it. but for now my grades are the only tangible achievement I have.

    I would feel suicidal, get in a rubbish university, redo them whilst there, get a first, apply for masters, and get a phd and live happily ever after.

    And find a nice wife, who will love me despite my A Levels.

    "Honey, we've been married for fifteen years. But I found something today. YOUR A-LEVEL SCORES, BMQIB. WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THEY WERE SO MEDIOCRE? ALL THESE YEARS. ALL THESE LIES. I CAN'T DO IT ANY MORE. I CAN'T LIVE WITH A FAILURE."

    Really?

    If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again.

    I did one in jan (my school does the whole maths in jan and the whole f.maths in june if you take both) so if i failed the remaining two I would pay to sit the exams at a college or something without taking the lessons and in the meantime i would carry on working and possibly get work experience. Then apply to uni again.

    Resit and reapply to uni.

    If it didn't work out again I'd try and find a job or try and open a cake business or something.

    Then what?
    Try and make it as an artist or get into a career that's art related. Surprisingly, out of all the Arts subjects, Art & Design actually has one of the highest employment rates.

    Not sure, but I know my immediate plans would be to buy a tub of my two best friends.

    One's called Ben and the other is called Jerry.

    Then cry.

    Try not to panic, then panic: depends on the extent of the failure

    Then probably resit next year, and promise myself not to excessively procrastinate.
