    Thanks you for the advise really appreciate it, How is your foundation course going? and what uni are you doing it at?
    I am on gap year and will be starting the foundation degree in Computing at Teesside University. Its a decent uni, I remember when I checked UCAS clearing and so many courses had plenty of spaces left. I can give you some courses that might interest you.

    If you have 200 ucas points I think you can still do full degree in Computing for some uni. Any more advice I be glad to help. Just check on UCAS course search as well.

    his year is my last year at sixth form I'm in year 14...
    Does year 14 even exist?
    Anyway, you should probably enter yourself as a private candidate and pay for your exams if your school refuses to do so. Since this would be better than wasting all the effort you put in throughout the year.

    My life is over i have pretty much nothing left to do, this year is my last year at sixth form I'm in year 14... And i just found out that I'm not being entered into some of the exams that i made sure to tell the teachers about.

    I'm only doing a applied business exam and a computing Comp 3 exam and it wont help me get my grade any higher then a D/C. I was also retaking my English exam because i got a D in year 11 and i just found out my English teacher didn't enter me in for that exam as well because i did not hand in my work 1-2 hours before. I really don't know what to do im still doing a Btec IT course which I'm doing quite well in also doing CCNA besides it where i get Merits but i cant do anything with one Btec a C in business and a D in computing and also without a C in English GCSE I'm unable to apply for many courses because that is a minimum requirement. I wanted to do computer science at uni but looks like thats not happening so now I'm thinking about becoming a network engineer but every job/course i see whats a C in English could someone please give me advice and sorry this is written poorly I'm not in a good mood.

    Omg wow thank you this is very helpful! I really appreciate your help!
    But most if not all want a C in English would you think I should apply to them through clearing? Or would that make no difference?

    Most of them take equal qualifications to English such level 2 functional skills or adult literacy. Majority of the courses that I put will not be bothered about your GCSEs in clearing because they will need to fill them so don't worry.

    Here another course which is full degree Computer and Network Technology with foundation year at Manchester Metropolitan which only needs 160 points and D in Maths and English

    I give you more information. In clearing, you will not need C in Maths or English plus they will reduce entry requirements to fill up the spaces so applied to thoses courses through clearing.

    But if clearing seems far now, there UCAS extra which allows you to apply for 1 extra course. Ask your career/student service in college to help you with that. If you don't get a place through UCAS extra than you get put automatically into clearing.

    Here another courses which is Foundation year in Computing and Maths at Kingston University.
    You need 160 ucas points and Maths and English at C or equivlent so that means they accept Level 2 adult literacy.

    Remember to see the equivalent part in entry requirements and always call up the universities themselves to find out if you need a C in English.

    Yeah i might be panicking a bit too much because everything happened to fast so I'm just in a completely different position that i was in like a few days ago, thank you for your advice. I think i will hopefully be accepted onto a foundation year so i can go through the career pathway that i have wanted for a few years now.

    Are you doing a foundation year? if you so how is it going?
    If you don't manage to get onto a foundational degree a lot of colleges and even some unis offer an access to higher education and providing you meet the requirements yo u should be able to go straight to the 1st year rather than doing a foundation on top of it. I'm really enjoying uni although next year I really need to put a lot more effort in as I've done nowhere near the amount of reading that's required.
