Is it too late?Watch
Im currently studying law at westminster uni and i just finished my year with a 2.2 (54% overall). For my alevels i got BBC.
Ive been looking into transferring into another uni for the second year (one outside of london) but the search isnt going too well.
I was also thinking of maybe dropping out to resit my alevels and get a better grade and then reapply for unis next year but i feel like that would be such a waste of the money ive already spent. Plus i know that my family and some of my friends would not be very supportive because im already studying in uni and they would see that as taking a step backwards.
I would appreciate any help for transfers or for maybe redoing my alevels.
This has been on my mind for a very long time but truthfully i have been feeling too scared to try to transfer or drop out.

You could probably get a transfer to a different uni for your second year but damn you need to act fast. You need to make TELEPHONE CALLS (instant response) TODAY. Not tomorrow. Id advise this over resorting A-Levels.

I would definitely say no to going back to A Levels, no point and they're a lot harder now (i.e. not modular anymore).
Do your research and start contacting universities now. Most would just lay down the condition of passing the year, which you have.
As stated above, this will not automatically improve your grades - you need to put the effort and extra effort needed.
Look at what you've got already; you've got good A levels, you've completed your first year and you've got a 2:2 - that's not a fail! You'll get into the next year, which is all you need at this stage.
You need to focus on what you're doing now, and on getting good results for the coming terms. Don't compare yourself to others or consider another route will make everything better, otherwise you might end up going in circles your whole life and never getting anywhere or achieving anything.
At the end of the day, it's your own decision - but I think it would be a waste to give up everything you've achieved already.
