    I have applied to go Uni this year, but I've already been unsuccessful with 2 of the Uni's, so I only 3 choices left. If I don't get into Uni this year, I fear I may lose out all together and be stuck not knowing what to do. I don't want to end up going back to College again next year to study an access course, and the reason for that is because I am already 22 years old and don't want to waste another year studying when I could be at Uni. Any advice...?

    Even if your 5 choices reject you, that isn't the end. You can still apply to further uni's if your remaining three reject you, via Extra. If you get nothing from that, from June/July you can enter Clearing to pick up any places that are still left over.

    Don't panic, there's plenty of time - your 3 unis have still got until May to consider you.

    If you do get rejected by all 5 choices, you need to think about why- try asking for feedback. Were your grades not good enough or was it the PS, or did you have an interview. Then you could apply to a more realistic choice through extra.
