I'm 21; I've been overseas in Australia for three years. During that time I was employed full time in a small business which I assisted in starting up. I had progression in that role, from an administrative role through to a sales role where I was successfully building a career. I gained a permanent visa as a result of a relationship breakdown due to family violence and then decided to come home.
I have readied an application for law that should be sent off in the next week or so. I know I have passed the deadline and most courses will have been filled by now. I desperately wanted to study law, but due to work and the nature of the relationship I was in, I didn't make any moves towards strengthening my application. I gained three good a-levels, and have applied before for English a few years prior but decided to not attend as I simply wasn't in the right mindset.
I'm sure it's what I want to do but I'm panicking because of course availability.
My question is, if the worst case scenario happens and I don't get a suitable place, what do I do for the next year to strengthen my application?
My stress levels are high at the moment, so I was hoping to work part-time for a period, volunteer at a relevant placement (such as citizens advice) and then perhaps go a do a Camp-America-style stint for a break which still has some value as opposed to backpacking again. But should I not be gaining another a-level or similar? I had an A* in English, B in Art, D in History and Welsh Bacc which is A equivalent.
I'm really lost at what to do.
What do I do?
