    Earlier I just recieved a UCAS notification and it was my third rejection for Geography 2010. (so I feel really ****** atm)

    Right now, I only have one offer (from southampton). This whole university thing is starting to drive me a little insane now and I'm begining to debate whether I should actually take up that offer (provided I get the grades) and go to Southampton.

    But I've been thinking about a "plan B" for a while now. I'd love it if I could strengthen my academic profile and reapply next year and get into these unis that gave me the 2 fingers - UCL, Bristol and Durham.

    Right now Im doing A2 geo, business and IT. I got ABB at AS and so I think it was because I had two 'light' subjects that I got 3 big fat rejections.....Now I'm a fairly confident person and very hardworking, motivated and all that rubbish so should I go and do a couple more A-levels in 1 year next year?... I mean how crazy is that? do you think its worth it?...what if I dnt even get another offer next year?? (its going to be more competitive than this app cycle:eek: )...

    so what do you guys reckon?? what would you do?

    I'd be very surprised if the likes of Durham, Bristol and UCL didn't have AAA as an offer requirement, which would probably explain it. Do you think you can get these grades? In a sense it will be easier next year if you have your grades since there will be no prediction involved (for better or worse).
