    I feel as if Ive missed all great opportunities and Ive completely failed at life and im only 18!!!!

    The reason being that 4 out of my 5 UCAS university choices have been unsuccesfull & im pretty sure its because of my A LEVEL results. Last year i recieved a D in Media (Full A2) E in Business (Full A2) and D in Economics (AS Level).
    This morning i recieved my Economics results and they were even WORST! I feel as if I am trying but its just not paying off. I recieved an E in my retake and U in my Unit 3.

    Should i give up? Is there any hope for me? I try really hard but I really don't understand where Im going wrong. I used to recieve good grades, A's and B's but for some reason A level has been a struggle for me.

    I only want to make the best out of my life and I now feel like I've completely missed out on that chance and won't ever get it back.

    Any suggestions would really help right now.


    I think the big thing is, where did you apply? With those grades you will, unfortunately, be lucky to get in anywhere and a foundation degree, if they're offered in your subject, would probably be better.
