    and those results are not bad at all.

    Hi Amyxo,

    As others have said, your results are just fine!

    To get a better idea of where you might go for university, you might like to think about a few possible courses that you would enjoy studying and then look up a few different universities and their typical offers (it's usually on the 'Entry Profile' part of either the university's website or on the UCAS website).

    If you find something that you think you will really enjoy and find out the typical offer, it will help you work out what you need to be aiming for in your A2 year which should make things much clearer.

    Best of luck!

    Hey, No I'm not really happy with the results as I know I could have done a lot better as I hate college and so didn't really try! Guess I wish I had tried harder now though as other people from my college have amazing results!

    Thank you! I have no idea what I want to study at Uni, or even if I want to go to Uni! If I did go to Uni though, possibly something Fashion or Geography related, but really not sure

    Difficult decision time then! Visit lots of Open Days. You can read as much as you like but nothing really gets the 'feel' of a place across like visiting the campus and speaking to students and staff. Additionally if you're thinking about studying fashion you need to check out the facilities and see what you're going to have the opportunity to do while you're there.

    Have you thought about looking at UCA? We teach a range of Fashion degrees. Have a look and see if anything catches your eye.

    This video gives an idea of what it's like to study Fashion with us:


    Hopefully that helps.

    All the best
