I'm in S6, and what if i don't meet my uni offer this year. Am i basically screwed then, this i can't resit or anything and it's extremely shameful that i couldn't meet an offer which was set at a level which i could have easily achieved.
So yh screwed some of my highers, probs got C's this yr instead of A's and B's. What should i do now, go and do a levels or something and get in through uni that way?
- Clearing. It might be worth looking at what courses were in clearing last year and see if you are interested in them.
- Gap year and reapply. With AAA at higher and 2/3 more highers you should be able to get into somewhere reasonable.
Don't do clearing and jump into a crap Uni like I did. Wait a year. Use that year to get work experience, travel a little, take karate classes, whatever, perhaps you could do a short college course that would help you get into a course of your choice at a better Uni that you would have done had you gone through clearing. I panicked, and went to the only Uni left that offered a course I knew I would enjoy (I'm a 'Jack of All Trades- I enjoy a lot of things, but there was only one option left for me as I was on holiday during the first week of clearing). I got A's at GCSE, but did poorly at A-Level (mainly because of awful home life) and now I'm at Greenwich, knowing I could have gone somewhere much better. Don't do it! Wait!
