Im currently applying for a few universities however my current results aren't reaching the requirements to get in. Im in my last of year of college (studying Software Development Level 3) and wondering if my grades on this course will create a positive affect on my personal statement.

If you want to be brutally honest im fine with it.

How bad is 'bad'? And you should probably ask the universities themselves.

Hopefully when you resit the exam again you will get a C or higher! I dont think unis will look down at you for resitting. i know acouple friends that did maths/ English gcse while in Alevel and go to great unis.
