    I was wondering if somebody could give me some help with this matter; I want to study a photography degree, though i'm considering Digital & Lens Media (Herts) too. Anyway, i know that really i should complete the Foundation Art year before this ontop of my a-levels, i accept this. On my ucas form so far i have put a deferred entry for this, and a non deffered entry to the uni i want to apply to just in case i can get in without. My worry is, after looking over my GCSE results and AS's it doesnt look too promising even with a deferred entry:

    Eng Lit - C
    Eng Lang - C
    Religious Studies - D
    German - C
    Information Tech - G (yes, terrible i know.)
    History - B
    Mathematics - D (But i resat it at college and got a C)
    so Mathematics - C
    Art - D
    Science Double - CC

    I got a Key Skills L2 PASS
    I got a U in my Art AS shamefully and i dropped it, i took up AS ICT alongside my A2 subjects. I got an E in Psychology AS, again terrible, especially as although my MTG was an E, the teachers said i was working towards a B level. So i'm resitting my exam in january. and photogrpahy i got a C AS. This year, ive been working really hard to get my act together, my photgraphy teacher has said so many good things about me and my work, my psych teacher said she was surpised at my last result and thinks if i revise properly i cna achive at least a C. and IT is where im doing well too. So im hopefully aiming for Photo=B (id accept a C, but i beleive i can get the B), pych=C and IT AS-C.

    The Uni's i'm looking at are middlesex to do photography and herts to do digital and lens media, i think i have a strong portfolio especially this years work so far.

    What i want from you guys please is a personal opinion, you think i could get in? middlesex is my first choice, my tutor has noted my PS is really good, my teachers are pushing me and encouraging me to exceed this year but even as i write this i feel like crap because i know my results arent all great at all. I see myself as average, i guess im looking for reassurance from you guys? or whether any of you had similar results and still got in? anything of relelvence or advice is GREATLY appreciated.
