    My AS results were CDE and I feel terrible, I have let myself down and my family are even more so. Are my prospects for getting into uni over? I am determent to actually put a lot of extra effort into getting my grades up with A2 and resits. Is is even possible for me to maybe achieve BCC or BBC by the end of next years A2? I will put the work in

    There's no reason why you can't pull them up. I was worried about that so I had a back up by doing an Extended Project, just in case I missed my grades this time and I've got a place where I wanted doing the degree I wanted.
    I'd start looking at courses now and see what the unis accept an entry requirements. Most importantly, be realistic!!

    Don't worry. In my first year I got a E and managed to get a C overall after my second year.

    I think you should be able to, but it will take hard work.

    It is entirely possible if you are willing to work your arse off! I have heard stories of people going from UUU or BCD to AAA or AAB so it is possible

    The thing is there is only June exams now, so you should really consider which exams you need to retake. If you may have to retake a lot, I suggest you should try revise the topics very soon. But I'm sure you will still find a uni to go to. Don't worry.

    Anything is possible. You'll certainly have a great deal of hard work to come, but without doubt it's very possible to resit some papers and push your overall marks up substantially. Don't lose hope - things are never as dire as they might at first seem...

    Of course it's still possible. You just need to work your socks off. I'd suggest talking to a student advisor or your teachers and get their feedback on your situation and if it's worth continuing.

    As long as you put the time and effort into your second year I'm sure you'll do well. You may regret it one day if you walk away from A levels and just try finding a job or doing an apprentership.

    Yes I will do.
    No education all the way for me; no apprenterships.
