    Hey there! =]
    Hope your results were the ones you hoped for ^.^

    Anyway - mine weren't. >.< Basically I'm unsure what my options are as I only have 160 UCAS points (I know guys, I know). Through the two years I had quite a lot of family problems and personal issues - I won't bore with the details. But the terrible A-Level results were entirely my responsibility and ... I don't know what to do D=

    Seriously, I'm so lost - Even if I got AAA I'd still have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Seems everyone is going to Uni, has a job or even an idea of their future.
    I feel as if I've been given a rubik's cube to solve with every single little square a different colour.
    So I don't really even know where I'm getting out here - I'm rambling on a bit but "throws hands in the air" what can I do?

    Thanks for reading - much appreciated
    (I just really like this face)

    Even though I'm going to uni I've got no idea what I want to do in life! There are so many options - It may sound cliche but what about going travelling and working hole you travel to get an income? Who knows you may have a sudden realisation of what you want to do! It sound like a big thing but there's no shame in having no idea what you want to do!

    :console: ah don't feel like that. Even though you haven't done as well as you hoped for it doesn't mean you are a failure. You are obviously confused and to be honest there is no point retaking or doing a new course if you still don't know what you would like to study/do in life. As the other poster said, go travelling or work for a while and when you have realised what would want to do then you can focus on achieving it. Even if you wanted to go back to college in a couple of years and then go onto university then that's still an option. Just take some time to think for now.
