    Just take a gap year and repeat or do another A-level or whatever. A year out is not the end of the world and there's likely to be absolutely nothing you can do at this stage.
    Seriously. This or you're too thick to go to uni.

    You're right. None of us know your exact situation. But offering money to random people on the internet is not the way to go. Call back the uni and ask for suggestions. They should be able to help more than we can. Or else call UCAS and see what they say.

    You can go to Manchester but not Northumbria? And attacking people on here is not going to help. Call UCAS now before they close.
