    Hey, just a question. Are you sure you've failed?
    My sister does Psychology at Blackburn, and on her course it says she's failed the first year because she hasn't completed the whole 3 years, and so it automatically says fail until the third year. If she hasn't passed then she obviously does not progress on to second year, but she is going to second year now. So was just wondering? Maybe yours is the same?
    Otherwise, you don't exactly have to start fresh from college? Or if you want to desperately improve your A levels then maybe its good for you to start a new Just think about whats best for you!

    If you want to drop out of university then that's up to you. Please don't be put off by having to repay more loan as it's not treated like a regular loan, you aren't expected to pay it back off really quickly. It'll just be taken out of your wage in small (relative) increments, you don't even have to think about it. Most people aren't expected to pay it all off and it's wiped from you after 30 years anyway so don't worry about the repayments, it's not really a concern. Considering how large the total adds up to anyway, what's one more year?*

    *It's a lot, yes, but again, you won't really feel the impact of repaying.
