    So i got CEU for A2 but my insurance university has still accepted me. However i don't really want to go to that university anymore for a few reasons and one of them being not wanting to do the course i initially applied for.

    I'm considering doing a gap year and resitting the modules and the subject i got a U in, mainly because these results will always stay with me and employers would want to look at them in future. That is why i want to improve them, however the only thing that is stopping me is tuition. I would do independent study and can resit the exams at a college however i would need someone to mark my essays but i can't really afford tuition.

    Alternatively, i could let go of my insurance choice and go into clearing but that is too risky because if i don't get a place at a university in clearing then i wont have a place anywhere. Could someone please give me advice on this.

    If you know where you went wrong, you should resit. You can always get someone on TSR to look at your essays.

    I got EEE when I did my A levels and have always regretted it. It is for ever being asked about even though I now have a degree and a professional qualification.

    Yeah, definitely try and resit them. Future employers and job prospects will be limited, even if you have a degree, they'll still look at your a levels.
    I hope it goes well for you

    Hey! I got my AS results yesterday and they were far lower than I had expected :| I got BBCD in maths, chem, economics and physics. I am remarking most of them. I'm not sure what kind of career I should go into with those subjects and results. Was thinking engineering before I got my grades but not so sure anymore :|
