Getting As at A-level =/= guaranteed a place

Have a look through UCAS extra - are there any architecture courses left? If you see any you're interested in, phone the uni and check they're still making offers/if they'd be likely to give you one. If you send an application using extra, get someone such as a teacher to read through your personal statement again; as you say your grades are good, maybe this is where you let yourself down. If you feel it needs rewriting you could send a revised copy to any university you apply to and ask them to read it when considering your application.

If you can't find anything in extra (or clearing when that comes around), then you will have to wait until next year to apply. If you find something to do in an unexpected gap year (travel? Work experience?) it could help your application and actually turn into something you enjoy.

Sorry to hear your UCAS hasn't gone as planned so far - I hope things work out for you

Thank you for your advise ...
Do you mean I can still send the universities better personal statements so that all of them will consider my application again ?

I guess you're not superb, eh?

(Sorry I had to)

You can still go through Extra and Clearing, OP. I hope you can work it out in the end.

Good luck

No, I just meant send it to any new universities you apply to through extra. It's unlikely the uni's you originally applied to will reconsider you at this point I'm afraid.

It is worth emailing them for feedback however to see where you went wrong - some will only give vague answers but some might give you some good advice for if you decide to reapply next year.

Edit: could A level subjects be an issue? I know some places require art for example, did you check you met all the requirements?

I'm sure you'll get some-where. You can still go through Extra and Clearing right up till October for some colleges. Just keep trying different places or a similar course and you'll get some-where x
