    I wanted to post on here because I have a really confusing choice. I applied to Physiotherapy courses and got 3 offers and decided my firm was:
    Cardiff - Grade A needed in Biology

    And my insurance was:
    St Georges - Grade B needed in Biology

    As my application/A Levels panned out over the year, I focused on achieving my firm offer as my other choices were much of a muchness. However, come results day I had a shocker by getting a grade D overall in Biology. This meant by Firm offer refused me but I believe my insurance has confirmed me (although I havent heard anything from them yet).

    The choice I have is whether to go through with uni this year at St Georges when Im not too keen on studying in London/spending a lot of money/expensive accommodation but want to study the course. Or... go back to college and bump my Biology grade up to go elsewhere next year depending on how much I can beat my grade now. I am already 20 and feel like I'm dragging a bit. What should I do next???
