    I've been given 30 mins to decide if I want to do a foundation year at my firm or go to my insurance. Pressure.
    Which course? Do you prefer your firm university over your insurance enough to do a foundation course, or is your preference towards doing the course, so going to the insurance doesn't matter as much?

    Is it bad that I can't even remember what this latest AS unit was on? Haha! Oh it was abnormality, social and stress, I remembered hah. Woo well done! And yeah I know what you mean, my mental health took a bit of a bad turn during the exam period which I think messed up my grades a bit but luckily still got AAABB and they were close A's so not too bad! Ah I suppose I better get on with my summer homework now haha, I've been slacking so bad!
    I had no social interaction (well, friends anyway) for my month long study leave - was just holed up in my room! I even blocked Tumblr. I think I went a bit mad during that period.
    Think I can justify a shopping trip with my grades? :P
    I swear I will do my summer homework afterwards!

    Choice between Manchester uni (my hometown) or Leeds. Manchester I'm closer to home and I get more money from Manchester but it is an extra year and an extra 6 grand of debt.

    GCSEs, AS levels and predicted grades (from your teachers). As well as personal statement, references, possibly an interview, and checking your AS levels and predicted grades are consistent (not overvalued or undervalued). If you feel you under performed in one your referee can say so, but I think your predicted grades are absolutely fine taking your AS levels into account.

    EDIT: A-levels if you apply after your A-levels have been completed (Gap year)
    Im not sure if I should take the chance and apply this year (minimum entry requirement is AAA!) or maybe take a gap year and resist some modules.

    Neither did I, I worked so hard but also crammed so hard for sociology which was my first exam and that just mentally drained me so then I wasn't in a good place for the rest. Bloody hell I could never block tumblr haha! Yes yes yes, I went out for cake with my mom and were going out for tea on Monday to celebrate! I have to go driving tonight though haha ill be saying that about my homework on the 4th September, the day before I go back

    Tough as they're both good universities... have you looked at the course details again? Not sure what to advise, where could you see yourself at more?

    Applying this year won't hurt, the worst that could happen is you are rejected but can always apply in the 2015 cycle.
