    Hello

    I am a second year uni student currently on a leave of absence due to medical and personal issues. I have not finished my second year but passed my first with a low 2:2.

    I was wondering how likely is it if I applied through UCAS now to gain entry into second year at another university? How often/likely does this happen. What sort of university am I looking at applying to as I am currently at a good Russell Group institution. I got AAB in my A levels and I'm currently doing a joint honours humanities course at a top 20 uni.

    I have been told to contact the university's and ask whether or not my first year modules match up but this isn't very likely as every university's modules are different.

    I could just wait out the leave of absence and come back the next year but I was looking for a fresh start and my illness has prevented me from excelling. Will other universitys take m personal/medical issues on board or should I abstain from disclosing them. Is it too late due to the passing of the January deadline?

    Does anyone have any advice?


    Thank you
