    Hi all,

    I got BCCD in my as levels, in Graphic design, maths mechanics, physics and economics. I was a little disappointed with these results as I want to study mechanical engineering at uni.

    Do you think i will get any offers with these results? Are there any ways i can recover these results with a great personal statement?

    Thanks

    Just do a foundation year. Loughborough uni offers a foundation year in ME, its what I did. I had CCC at A-level and now I'm at a uni that wants A*A*A for physics.

    Its year 0 of a degree. It bridges the gap between A-levels and university by first covering A-level topics and then moving on to slightly more advanced stuff that wouldnt be done at A-level all in a university environment, i.e you have lectures ect.

    In essence, its an easier version of first year at university which lets you change between degree programs and try different modules.
