    I am 19 years old and I'm worried that I won't be a mature student at the time of applying. I am thinking of doing an access to business course but I'm scared that no university will accept me because of my age and academic record.

    I've always wanted to go to uni and I still really really do!!I just don't see another way to build a career, but I have done AS Levels before and got UUUU. I've spent the last year working in customer service, but I really really hate it! Is it possible not to put those Us on my UCAS application and just not tell the universities that I have studied AS levels before at all?

    An access course appeals to me because it only takes one year to complete ( I dont mind the workload) and next year this time I could be preparing to go to university. The idea excites me. What are my chances of getting in?
