    I posted a similar question yesterday as I got BCC which I was disappointed with as I worked harder than I have on any of my exams and was led to believe I'd get Bs in my English coursework and thought I'd done well I'm my exams.

    However despite my firm offer (university of kent) being AAB I've been accepted. Part of me feels like I'd be sensible to try and defer but I really don't want to. But I'm looking to get into publishing or journalism so I could be screwed if I don't. Would a lot of work experience make up for my bad a levels or will I have to defer if I want a chance in life? I just want to stop worrying and be excited for uni but I'm scared.

    Hi

    Congratulations on getting accepted for your firm university! :party:

    I know you might feel upset about your A level results right now, but most employers will focus more on your degree classification than what you got in your A levels, so try to relax and enjoy yourself at university next year! :woo: You'll have a great time!
