Does this count of ressiting the year even though I wouldn't be enrolled in school and only sitting a few exams?
Manchester don't like resit years, I believe. However, Russell group universities and universities of similar standard are generally not excluded.
And providing I got some decent work experience, would it be possible to re-apply for Manchester or another Russell group university?
Bear in mind, the Russell group isn't a measure of quality. They are a group of universities heavily involved in research, and there is debate about whether or not that's important for an undergraduate student. I would argue that you should be preferencing good teaching over good research, and good researchers don't necessarily make good teachers.
You shouldn't go somewhere that you're unhappy, but I would urge you to consider why you're unhappy with Reading now whereas I'm guessing you weren't before?
Should I just suck it up, admit defeat and study at Reading because at the end of the day a university is a university ?
There is a huge gulf between AAB and BBC. Would you be ok with going to Reading if you got ABB, or do you not want to go to Reading at all?
