    Hi, I have just finished my second year in sixth form, although I have only done two years of AS levels. Long story short my school have had lots of problems (teaching the wrong spec for the exam!). Since retaking my Psychology AS this year, I applied for a place at college to complete the last year of my A levels. Although now I have a letter from college saying they aren't doing A levels (don't know why!) and I have got my results today and it''s not good at all, DUU. I don't really want to have to do another two years of A levels, I'm 19 in october. Although I do really want to go to university, I want to study Criminology with Law.
    I've been looking online for E-courses that will help me get enough ucas points to get in to university next year but I have no idea what ones are the best to do and if universities accept them, does anyone know what I should do?
    I have about 60 ucas points, pitiful I know, and most courses I'm looking at are around 300!!

    Hmm, tough situation - I empathise! Do you know what sort of unis you are looking at? When they ask for 300 UCAS points, they tend to be from 3 Alevels, for example. It's not a case of trying to get as many points as you can from as many sources as possible.
