I would thank God and welcome the excuse not to go to university.
I'd probably go back to The Angels and try and get a paid job there. Eventually applying to become a holiday rep (for someone like Thomas Cook not Club 18-30 lol) and have a happy few years out in the sun.
I am quite terrified as I havn't a clue! I always advise people I know to have a back up plan yet hypocritically don't have my own !
Problem is I want to do a law degree...it's so competitive that unless you go to an AAA/AAB Uni course you'll find it incredibly hard to get a job in a good firm. Hence I have no insurance choice.
I really don't know what I'd do about this. If I miss Durham but make Warwick I don't know whether to reapply for Durham for next year and resit exams or just go to Warwick. Durham's my dream uni, but I couldn't imagine sitting through another year of college.
Good luck with your exams guys, hope none of us have to resort to our backup plans.
I don't even want to think about it really. If I miss Warwick, then I'd probably go to Bristol. If I missed BOTH then I'd probably take a gap year and reapply whilst resitting modules I messed up in at college. That won't happen though.
If I don't get to uni for whatever reasons I'll probably take a gap year and work to earn as much as possible to at least half of it then spend 2/3 months travelling (mini trip not full on gap year tour type trip). If I could afford to do it I'd do Leadership Academy (LA) at my church whilst still working part time rather than travel but that would be from the september through to the next august.
However, hoping that I do get in first time around as I want a degree before I do LA!
If you miss the grades (fingers crossed it doesn't happen) PHONE THE UNI STRAIGHT AWAY. You never know, they might take you in anyway (mine did!). You must do it asap though, otherwise they might offer your place to someone else.
Don't think all hope is lost if you look at the mark sheets and see you've missed a grade, just phone the uni up and see if they'll still let you in. You never know!
