    I am currently studying HNC business at college and im doing well, i also have 5 standard grades at 2, one at 3 and an A in int2 maths and a B in higher modern studies, i am 20 years old and i have a son age 3, i really want to go to uni and can manage travelling, childcare, etc, but will any uni want me? their prospectus says that HNC is accepted as an entrance requirement but will i actually get in? i am so confused by all of this, plus i dont have anyone who i feel knows me well enough to do my reference for me? - my student advisor has only been around for about 3 months and has alot of classes and alot of students, i am worried she wont do me a good reference, can anyone help?

    Being 20 and having a child won't count against you, they'll just look at your applications itself. If your diploma is accepted and you meet the minimum grade requirements for your course at your unis, than you have a chance of getting in, but there are always other factors involved and you can never be sure, that's why you get to apply to five courses. If you choose them wisely, you'll have a good chance of getting in somewhere. I'd really advise getting a reference no matter what, I can't really help you on who to ask, either someone who has taught you directly or your student advisor is both fine.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
