    I need advice.
    Before results day I already had an unconditional offer from a standard university and I intended going there because it was close to home. I'm going to study English, so i recieved my results today which were BBC. I'm not dissappointed as I had a lot going on during the year and tried my best. My only problem is that i got the C in English, which i'm supposedly meant to be good at after getting a*'s at gcse.I don't know whether I should do this course at university or change my mind. What would you do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated please and thanks

    Well, it depends on whether you like English- do you want to study it for 3 more years? Also, if you had things going on during the year that you think affected your performance in English, and you know that you could've done better, maybe don't be so hard on yourself.
    Maybe you should consider a gap year. Defer your entry for the University you have an offer for perhaps (you can always withdraw it if you decide you don't want to go) as it may give you the few months you need to really decide what you want to do- I know this is an annoying point but it's £9000 a year you'd be spending; if you think there's a chance you don't want to do English, taking a gap year and figuring out what you want to do may be the best option.
    These are just some of my thoughts so don't take them as the Gospel but good luck and maybe this was helpful!

    Not sure if this has already been asked but can someone please confirm whether the Edexcel Fine Art AS (8FA0) is one of the new linear courses where it won't count in Year 13 and it's entirely separate from the A-Level? Got my AS results today and knew what was going on with the other subjects but couldn't find anything about Art. Thanks.

    when u thought the edexcel history exam was an absolute train wreck and u had prepared urself for death but u end up getting 64/70

    At the time I felt like everything that could've gone wrong in the A2 edexcel history exam did, but my result too shows otherwise!

    I honestly i really appreciate your kind words, I didn't really think anyone would reply so I am very thankful. Haha the funny thing is I was orginally planning to go university in 2017 and I suddenly had a panic about what i was going to do for the year so when I did apply, I applied as a late entry and recieved an unconditional. Lol so I was over the moon, now i'm back to sqaure one. Hope i'm not getting myself into a mess!
    Thank you for you advice though😚

    You're welcome! Honestly, if I were in your position, I would take a gap year. I just took one and am going to uni this September (I had to retake but still). If you're worried about what to do during the year a suggestion from me would be that you possibly Au Pair. I was an Au Pair in Milan last year in the Autumn of my gap year and it was a great experience- it's free travel essentially with the catch of having to look after someone's children for a bit each weekday. There are lots of things you can do in your gap year that won't cost much and I think that they can actually be so beneficial for personal growth. Again, just a suggestion/opinion from me, but if you have any questions about Au Pairing just ask!

    Absolutely devestated. I only received AAB (I have an A*AA offer at LSE) and I feel once again indignant regarding the subject I was aspiring to receive an A* in - English Literature. Last year AQA mismarked my AS Literature paper, giving it a D, while my teachers argue it was A standard

    It was too late to appeal and, upon resitting, I gained myself another D with a C in A2

    I know I put the work in
    Just to clarify, you got a conditional offer from LSE with a D in AS Lit? What were your other grades like?
