I took my A levels just over 2 years ago I think, but I did intensive course and did 2 in one year. I only got a B in English Lit, about 7 marks off an A, but I'd really like to study it at university.
What is my best route to apply? Taking an Access course, retaking my English Lit A level or applying with my B (to unis that ask for an A) and hoping my career and life experience will sway my vote!
I have just turned 22, to get an idea of how mature I am.

Unfortunately, you took your A-levels far too recently for experience to make up for a B-grade, unless you've been working as a writer for a few years or something.
So.. that leaves you needing to look at universities that ask for A- and B-grades in A-level English. If you like one that asks for a B, I'd just crack on and apply. If you only like universities asking for an A, you don't really have any option but to retake. Access would be an option, but surely it's more straightforward to resit a few papers than to take a whole course, provided your other grades meet the requirements?
