    My boyfriend didn't do as well as he'd hoped in his a levels and ended up with a C and a D in his A2 exams. He also has an AS which he got an E in. He's really stuck for ideas and wanted to stay in London where possible. Lots of unis have straight out said no to him, has anyone got any ideas as to where else we could call?

    Thanks for any help

    He can keep calling to see if anywhere will accept him but another option is to retake some exams. This will give him the opportunity to get better grades, have more options and more time to research.

    Hey there

    If he's looking for something creative he can have a look at the University for the Creative Arts Pre-degree courses at: http://www.ucreative.ac.uk/pre-degree If he's not eligible to go straight onto a 1 year Foundtion, he might be able to get onto the Access to Higher Education Diploma

    You can email: [email protected] or call: 0800 068 0088 to find out about applying.

    Hope this is of interest and good luck.

    He's hoping to do something in computing or business if possible, and he's seriously considering foundation years too
