A-Level/Foundation year collapse

Hi there,

I've got a couple of problems, and was hoping someone could suggest some options for me. I'm 19 and have just failed a Foundation Year at uni, which I got onto after failing all but 1 A-Level, ICT, in which i got a fabulous 'D'. I also have 2 AS-Levels, Physics 'C' and Photography 'C'. This was partly due to my school 6th form being one of the worst in the country and also my inability to pass anything since my GCSE's. Having to do that Foundation Year already means I'm a year behind most people my age. Unless I can convince my tutor to allow me to resit my foundation exams before the start of the next academic year, I will have to wait till next June to take them, wasting yet another year. I've been looking at some sites, such as that of Greenwich uni, and if i was very persuasive I might be able to get onto one of their clearing courses, although that's a long shot. Has anyone got any suggestions of what I can do? My foundation year was meant to lead to a BEng in Electronic Engineering, but strangely, while studying this year i seemed to really want to study Law. Although after all of this I am really confused and am questionning everything. I would really appreciate any help.
