No University is for thick people - some people look down on former poly's but they are still an environment of higher learning for intelligent people. You are just less likely to get snobby people there

Leeds will probably have higher grade requirements but you'll be able to check what they both ask for on the University pages. Just have a look and see how what they ask for matches up to your predicted grades. Leeds met won't be a bad University for stupid people though don't worry - it just isn't seen in the same light because it isn't a Russell Group University like the University of Leeds. I couldn't comment on the quality of the course at either because I don't know anything about their Social Work courses I'm afraid

It's your latest grades that matter the most really, so if you get good A-levels you should be fine.
If you're a tad worried you could always put Leeds as your firm and Leeds Met as your insurance

mmmm, I guess sooo..
I know it may sound snobby, but I feel like a failure if I dont go to a traditional red-brick university
I think its the fact , Ive been groomed into aiming high by the private school I go too

It's not snobby to aim high and wish to go to a high achieving university, although don't consider yourself a failure if you end up in a non red-brick uni, I can't imagine it being that bad!
Just work hard and you'll be fine surely

Most universities do accept resit grades. Just email the universities to double check.

Don't worry about your GCSEs, as others have said, it's your A levels they will be interested in (though some courses ask that you have Cs or above in certain GCSEs such as english, maths and maybe sciences depending on your course) and yes, most places will accept re-sits unless it's a course like Medicine (in which case many places still accept re-sits but not all).
