    I am an undergraduate student studying computer science at university. I'm supposed to be in my 2nd year year but my 1st year didn't go too well and I failed
    all of the exams, I resat my 1st year and I passed most of my exams but I failed some due to special circumstances. So this year I have not been allowed to progress into 2nd year.
    I have decided to leave university and take a gap year and then I want to reapply to other universities for same course which is computer science. I feel strongly that it was due to special circumstances that I failed my first year.

    When I reapply for 2016 application do I need to list in the application that I have failed my first year at university twice or can I just show them my results up till A-levels since I am applying for 1st year entry?

    What chances do I have of universities accepting my application if they were to know of my disastrous first 2 years, with consideration of special circumstances?

    Chances of me applying to university after effectively 3 years since I passed my A-levels?

    Hi, dont let your past two years of failing put you down, if you strongly have interest in this subject then its definatly worth you applying again
    Also if you were to mention that you have done this course, it will show the uni that you've got some knowledge on it briefly and you are passionate about continuing this course as you want to apply for it again
