I have had a really awful and stressful last alevel year, I was hoping to achieve A*A*A but I only achieved A*AC in the end, but I didn't apply to university anyways because I wasn't too sure at the end of my as year what to apply for.
I'v had a lot of personal problems like my grandparents who both lived with me were terribly unwell, and my granddad died and my grandmother had heart failure during my a level exams this year.
I also temporarily lost part of my vision, causing extreme dryness and lights were such an issue - I sound classroom lighting and my school library lighting unbearable
Anyways, I just wanted to know - how far do you think my extenuating circumstances will help me , I was originally hoping to apply to Oxbridge - but I don't even know now , I feel so pathetic and stupid. Realistically Do you think admission tutors will look at my situation and consider my application for A*AA courses? And has anybody else has any success stories with extenuating circumstances?
Many thanks everyone, I really appreciate all your help.
How far do extenuating circumstances help?
